Vinyasa Foundations Intensive Module, Jan. 10-12, 2020

Foundations: The Roots of Vinyasa

January 10-12, 2019

Teacher: Jacquelyn Nash

The Vinyasa yoga style that we practice today comes from a history that is rich and layered. Learn the connection and progression from the ancient philosophy to the modern day experience of yoga in the West as we examine different lineages and styles, including Iyengar yoga, breath-based yoga (or Viniyoga), Classical Hatha Yoga and others, and discover how those style can influence your practice and teaching. We’ll spend a day diving deep into the Ashtanga Vinyasa lineage, which is at the heart of Vinyasa yoga, and discuss how to incorporate the foundations of Ashtanga yoga, most importantly breath, drishti and asanas, into your practice and your teaching.

Learn:
  • the spiritual, philosophical, & physical history of yoga.
  • different lineages and methods of asana to inspire your practice and teaching.
  • the Ashtanga Yoga primary series and the keystones of the Ashtanga lineage.

Required Books: Ashtanga Yoga: the Practice Manual by David Swenson

Jacquelyn Nash

As co-founder of The Yoga House, Jacquelyn is committed to demystifying the secret language of yoga and making it accessible to all people. After her first introduction with the Ashtanga Yoga Practice, Jacquelyn immediately found value in the authenticity, history and integrity of the practice. The practice inspired Jacquelyn to become a forever student of yoga, studying the Ashtanga Primary Series with David Swenson and Shelley Washington and learning the rich history and foundations of different yoga lineages and styles in her advanced training. Influenced by the light-heartedness but also sincerity of David and Shelley’s teachings, Jacquelyn has a nurturing and compassionate approach to sharing the richness of yoga that brings a sense of accessibility to those practicing and learning with her.

News from Jacquelyn & Leigha: A Big Change & New Beginning

the yoga house, uptown, stockade, kingston, ny, leigha butler, jacquelyn nash

After over eight years of hosting yoga in our sweet uptown space, we are closing our doors to the Uptown studio to focus on our growing community at Midtown.

This decision comes after many conversations and many hours of deliberation. It’s not an easy choice for us, but it’s one we had to make.

We have been so thankful for our incredible home in the Stockade District, for our awesome landlords, for so many memories, and especially for you! It was YOU who got us going at the studio and then dared to make the leap with us to Midtown when our mats became too tightly squeezed together. We’re thankful that you took that risk with us, and we’re so happy for the flourishing energy we have created together on Broadway.

– W H E N – 
We will host our last class at Uptown on Sat, Dec 7th 10:00-11:15am with Lori Henry.


– W H A T   I F – 
If you think this change will impact you significantly, don’t hesitate to contact us at info@theyogahouseny.com. We will be reaching out to those of you who only attend at Uptown. 


– M O R E D E T A I L S –

We have juggled things around to find a place for your favorite classes at Midtown. Unfortunately, we had to say good-bye to a few of the classes we really wish we could keep. Here are the changes:

  • Kelli Ingersoll will now teach Beginners Yoga at Midtown – 5:30-6:45pm on Mondays beginning 12/9.
  • Sally’s Restorative class moves to Midtown – 4:30-5:30pm on Wednesdays beginning 12/11.
  • Amy Reed’s Core Vinyasa moves to 6pm at Midtown – 6:00-7:30pm on Wednesdays beginning 12/11.
  • Lori Henry’s Beginner Yoga Class will now take place at Midtown – 11:30-12:45 on Saturdays beginning 12/14.
  • Our weekday morning program is now exclusively at Midtown with morning Mysore Ashtanga. This practice may be more welcoming and accessible than you think. Learn more here.

Don’t see your favorite? Let us know!! We are always getting creative and adjusting the schedule based on your needs and requests.

– B I T T E R S W E E T –

To be sure, it is tough to say good-bye. At the same time, we know this is the right decision for our community. We look forward to serving you at Midtown.

Asana: Aligning the Body

November 1-3, 2019

Teachers: Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash

asana YTT yoga kingston ny hudson valleyUnderlying each yoga posture is the accumulated anatomical wisdom of ages. In this module, take a tactile journey through postural alignment, learning what is happening in the body in each asana so that you can safely guide practitioners and/or deepen your own home practice. With the help of slideshow presentations that Leigha and Jacquelyn have developed over the years, you will walk away from the weekend with a deeper understanding of the poses’ anatomical underpinnings. In addition, this module will arm you with the confidence and knowledge to teach safe, smart yoga asana alignment.

Learn:
  • Basic human anatomy
  • Alignment essentials for movement and held postures
  • How to apply knowledge of anatomy & alignment to your own practice
  • How to guide practitioners safely
Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash

Having met in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Leigha and Jacquelyn decided to plant their yoga roots in Kingston in 2011 when they opened The Yoga House in Uptown Kingston. While their styles of practice and teaching differ, their polarities bring a very balanced approach to sharing yoga with those training with them. Both have studied with various teachers, Leigha most recently with Shiva Rea and Jacquelyn with David Swenson, bringing combined knowledge from different approaches to the practice. While they joke about not reading anything but yoga books, they are continually filling their wells with new inspiration for their committed personal practices and the classes that they teach.
