Melanie graduated from the Vajra Pani Yoga Teacher Training at the Shasta Yoga Institute in Mount Shasta California. The training is fundamentally grounded in the lineage of teachings offered by T. Krishnamacharya and his student B.K.S. Iyengar.
The theme for Melanie's first seven classes was chakras. Each week the class focused on poses to help balance the individual chakras, working through all seven chakras as the weeks progressed.
Melanie recently received a Yoga Tune Up® certification.
Yoga Tune Up® is a fitness therapy format built around the three P's – Pain, Posture and Performance. It helps eradicate pain, improve posture and enhance performance through a unique blend of yoga, Corrective Exercise, Self-Massage, and Breath Strategies. By helping to identify and target your "body blind spots"; areas that are most overused, underused, or misused, YTU heals damaged muscle, increases strength and establishes healthy movement patterns.
The YTU format includes dynamic and static range of motion exercises to target these blind spots to improve proprioception (body sense), interoception (physiological listening) and motor control (performance). This format utilizes unique exercises that educate each practitioner about their body biomechanics and their personal relationship to how they use their body on a daily basis. Mindset work surrounds and infuses each YTU lesson so that subtle and gross awareness evolve to help every practitioner live better in their body.
Rachel Anderson and Dave Menefee hold both the Findhorn-inspired meditations and lead pilates at Hayfork Yoga Center. Regarding pilates, they are not certified instructors, but they do follow a list of standard exercises. These classes are free of charge, but donations to support the yoga studio are gratefully accepted.
Judy has knowingly walked toward the light since 1975. She leads yoga classes when the certified teachers are unavailable.
Judy started the Inner Light support circle to share the gems of my truths and the techniques that have helped her to let go or accept those things that were holding her back. The support circle was intended to help us achieve our life goals in a joyful, peaceful (as possible) and loving way. This class may return to the schedule with sufficient interest.
Reiki Circle is led by Patricia Morrison and others and is open to the public.
