NEW Class Time Beginning in October! Tues/Thur 7:00-8:00am — House Flow with Julie

Early Morning House Flow

T/Th 7:00-8:00am

You asked, and we want to deliver! For those who like to get an early start, we’re offering a morning House Flow, beginning this October. It’s just one-hour long on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00am to 8:00am with Julie Colton. The class will be an abbreviated version of our cornerstone, open-level flow class. See our schedule page for information about class times, subs and cancellations.

 

House Flow

This is our classic, open-level Vinyasa Flow class. In it, we honor the infinite possibility inherent in each breath as we move through an asana practice that is equal parts challenging and sweet. Asana practice becomes a transformational and healing experience when it is intimately tied to breath-work. Although the class is physically rigorous, we offer modifications to accommodate your level of experience.

Music and the arts have engrossed Julie since she started to play for various Protestant churches at the age of 10. With undergraduate degrees in Jazz Piano Performance and Music Composition, she found the perfect blend of art and spirituality when she started practicing yoga years ago. In the artistic beauty of the yoga asanas, symbolizing components of Julie Colton, The Yoga House, Kingston, NYnature, and in the vibrational energy of music, Julie found in yoga a way to, as Joseph Campbell would say, “follow [her] bliss.”

Considering herself the eternal student who is now lucky enough to teach what she has learned, she is continuing her studies in graduate school so she can teach high school Biology and Math.  She continues the spiritual journey of practicing the eight limbs of yoga as well as studying healing arts like Reiki.

September Focus of the Month — Alignment

Iyengar AlignmentIt is through the body that we realize we are a spark of divinity. –B.K.S. Iyengar

With the recent passing of B.K.S. Iyengar, whose contribution to yoga brought us a new understanding of the human body and its possibilities, we would like to focus, this September, on alignment. For many yogis, the word alignment calls to mind specific anatomical cues: “This limb externally rotates while that appendage abducts; this joint opens while that muscle contracts or extends.” All of this is incredibly useful for entering asanas correctly, for preventing injury, and for sustaining longevity in the practice. But for Iyengar, a pristinely correct, anatomically driven asana practice was only one small part of the bigger yoga picture. It is he who said, “Health is the state of complete harmony of the body, mind, and spirit.” It is only when we achieve the alignment of these three elements, he would have reminded us, that “the gates of the soul open.”

YA-SCHOOL-RYS-200 The Yoga House Kingston, NY

Our 200-hour registered teacher training program exceeds the requirements set by the Yoga Alliance. Our primary focus is on the teaching of Vinyasa Flow Yoga, but we draw from many yogic disciplines, including but not limited to Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga. We offer a thorough and well-rounded yoga education — from our careful attention to anatomy and alignment to the study of yogic scriptures to the incorporation of a Seva (or selfless service) component. We see yoga as a holistic approach to life that benefits body, mind, spirit and community.

Life is filled with bright, shiny objects that distract us, knock us off track, and keep us from knowing our truest needs. They pull us away from our core values and innate wisdom.

How do we figure out what really works for us?

I believe that we all have the ability to find those answers, even if we can’t always access that wisdom or follow through on it. It has to do with slowing down and listening deeply, two things that are not given much respect in this world of information overload. High speed, next generation wireless networks keep us always plugged in out there but not in here where it helps the most.

The essence of what I teach and embody in my work comes from learning to listen deeply to myself. It’s about paying mindful attention to my body and soul to figure out what works for me. I’ve learned how to give myself what I need to truly flourish and feel strong and vibrant. I feel so grateful to be able to share this learning with you.

The class will be taught by Mel Toth who comes to us highly recommended and whose joyous energy and enthusiasm for all aspects of yoga is contagious.

Melanie Toth (Mel)

Mel’s yoga journey began in her living room over 13 years ago. An educator since 1998, Mel has taught 4th grade, co-authored a strategy book for teachers and served as a tutor and Director of Education for several NY learning centers. From her extensive background in education, Mel brings a solid understanding of how each student interprets information differently and may apply those misinterpretations to his or her body. As such, she strives to make her instruction clear and accessible for students of all levels of experience. Mel’s classes focus on the development of a solid foundation through the use of props, demonstration, description, and encouragement, while exploring basic principles of alignment, balance and relaxation. By encouraging her students to respect their physical limitations while exploring what is possible, Mel aims to help each individual learn how to serve the unique needs of their body. She is forever grateful to her first yoga teacher, Jill Gnassi, whose expert Iyengar instruction taught her how attending to small details could make a huge difference in her life, both on and off her mat.
