YOGA House in Kingston, NY

The Yoga House co-founder, Jacqui Nash

Beginning this weekend, join trained Ashtanga instructor, Jacqui Nash, for this traditional practice passed down to us by Sri Pattabhi Jois. We will be practicing the Primary Series (Yoga Chikitsa).

Who can practice Ashtanga Yoga?

Anyone! All levels of practitioners are welcome for this monthly class.

Although we’re offering the class only once a month, you might be surprised to find that even monthly exposure to the discipline of Ashtanga yoga can awaken and invigorate your regular yoga practice. Come explore the challenges of the body, but most importantly, the mind.

Drop-in is $15 or use your class card.

AcroYoga Weekly Meet-Up — Sundays, 6:30-7:30pm

We’re happy to announce that we are now hosting a weekly Acro-Yoga meetup!

Every Sunday from 6:30-7:30 P.M.

By donation. All levels welcome. No experience necessary.

All proceeds will go toward funding the meet-up itself.

What is AcroYoga?

Displaying IMG_3951.JPGIt’s partner yoga that uses elements of yoga, acrobatics, and Thai Yoga Massage. It’s delightfully adventurous and healing all at once. It’s performed in groups of three: a base, a flyer, and a spotter. We’ll alternate roles so that everyone gets a chance in every role.

What’s the format?

This is an informal meet-up. A teacher will be present to oversee the group. We’ll choose between three and five poses from the AcroYoga Manual to practice each week. We can lead and assist you if you need guidance or you can be self-guided. Come by yourself, or bring a friend. You can work with your partner exclusively, or we can mix it up.

Free New Year’s Day class, Jan. 1, 2:00-3:30pm

Free New Year’s Day Class

Join Jacqui Nash for this annual event, a class to ring in the new year. This year, we’re dedicating 2015 to Maitri Bhavana, or cultivating compassion and friendliness, in an effort to view all creatures and all people with openness and unlimited compassion (not always an easy task!).

Space is limited, so arrive a little early to roll out your mat.

“matiri karuna muditopeksanam sukha dukha punyapunya visayanam bhavanatas citta prasadanam.”

By cultivating attitudes of friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and disregard toward the wicked, the mind-stuff retains its undisturbed calmness

Yoga Fundamentals: A Workshop for Beginners–Sat., 1/17, 2:00-4:00pm

Yoga Fundamentals:

A Workshop for Beginners

Saturday, January 17th, 2:00-4:00pm

$30 day-of/$25 by Jan. 16th

YOGA House in Kingston, NYWe’ve all heard of the widely known physical and mental benefits of a consistent yoga practice. We know that when we hear the word “yoga” we think of flexibility, stress relief and mindfulness. But for some, making that step to experience those well-known benefits is not as easy as walking out the door and getting to a class. Often people feel intimidated and unsure of joining a group class for their first experience. Many questions arise: What type of yoga should I try? What’s with all the breathing? If I’m not flexible, can I do yoga? Maybe you’ve already been to a class but felt too uncomfortable and unsure of yourself to return.

This 2-hour interactive workshop is designed to quell those hesitations and answer any and all questions that you might have about starting a yoga practice. We will cover the following topics:

  • A brief history of yoga
  • An introduction to pranayama (breath control) and meditation
  • An explanation of different styles
  • An introduction to common yoga terms
  • A look at some yoga postures and their anatomical alignment

The entire workshop is designed to encourage dialogue, questions and discussion for any and all topics. If you have a question, we are sure that many other people do, so ask away for us all, teachers and students, to learn about the hesitations that arise. We want to provide you with the foundation of basic yoga principles in order for you to feel comfortable when you enter a yoga class for the first time. Join The Yoga House co-founder and  instructor, Jacqui Nash, for this open forum for any yoga-skeptics.

We have all necessary equipment (props, mats, straps, even water), so bring just yourself. Because we will be doing some postures, please wear comfortable, loose clothing.

(Please note, it is NOT necessary to take this workshop to come to a Beginner’s Class, which we offer of Monday and Friday nights.)
