OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our studio’s philosophy is rooted in the firm belief that everyone can do yoga. Our diverse offerings reflect that belief: we meet you where you are while helping you build the tools to grow, and encouraging you to listen to your own body’s wisdom. Most of our intermediate and advanced classes revolve around fun and mindful vinyasa flow that draws on the lineages of Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Anusara Yoga.

Yoga Immersion (6) Meditation

Using resources from various schools of meditation, teachers, and writing available, we will spend the first hour of our 6th session of Yoga Immersion discussing/surveying various approaches to meditation, and include discussions of our own experiences with the practice.

We will then focus on two types of meditation.
Chakra meditation, taught by Maureen Burford. Maureen is the director of Creative Lives and a longtime student of Ellen Tadd, author and teacher. Ellen's work focuses on "the actualization of spiritual potential in everyday life."
Maureen uses Ellen's teachings as a foundation for her own life's work as a therapist, educator, and director. In a 90-minute experiential workshop, Maureen will guide us through some simple and powerful techniques to tune into our reactions and responses at every level of ourselves, bringing clarity into our everyday decisions and actions. More information on Maureen's work here:
http://creativelives.org/content/framework-wise-education

Yoga Nidra, taught by Rick Lamont. Rick has been practicing yoga since 1992 and teaches regularly at studios in Grantham and Lebanon. Rick will be offering a one-hour practice in guided Yoga Nidra, followed by observations and questions.

Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations, going beyond meditation as our awareness is led through each of the koshas to our true Self.

An inviting practice, Yoga Nidra can be practiced by anyone, regardless of age or physical ability. All that is required is to lie (or sit) down and listen. It is a systematic method of complete relaxation and peace, not only for the physical body, but also for the deeper energetic, emotional and mental systems, penetrating to the roots of stress and allowing the release of subconscious tensions and tendencies that inhibit us from living fully. Yoga Nidra brings us to a place of deep calm, quiet and clarity.

Please join us! For those not enrolled in the Yoga Immersion program, cost is $55. Please register ahead of time to ensure your space.

  • "I have been practicing at Upper Valley Yoga since 2005. I have found safe, effective instructors here for all the phases of life and interest I have gone through since then. There is a wide range of class approaches and opportunities, from beginner to immersive and everything in between. I always recommend Upper Valley Yoga to friends, and tell them to explore all the teachers, they are sure to find the right approach for them."    - Louise
  • "Your teachers are at the top with their professionalism, expertise of yoga practice, patience and support of all in the class."    - M
  • "Yoga helps me the find the strength, flexibility, and focus to do the things I love to do in life. Practicing yoga at the Upper Valley Yoga Center feels like coming home to a warm and welcoming community."    — Karen
  • "The UVY studio is a warm and friendly place, with very special people as your teachers. So this begs the question: Does the practice of yoga make nice people, or do nice people practice yoga?"    — Jeanne
  • "The day I took my first class at Upper Valley Yoga, I knew I’d found my “yoga home”. Leslie, and all the teachers at the studio, truly practice what they preach: come to class, accept our instruction but listen to yourself and your body; honor your own best teacher, the teacher within."    - Dena
  • "Every class is a gift, not only for the yoga, but to be connected with others who are part of the Upper Valley Yoga community. An added treat is that the current space in White River Junction is spacious, sunlit and warm."    - Dena

ACCOMMODATIONS:

The building itself was renovated to be energy efficient, and the room is moderately heated in cooler seasons to promote a good, healthy sweat, but not heated to an excessive or wasteful degree. There are cubbies in our large office to store your personal belongings, a spacious changing room, a comfy sofa and a water cooler (please bring a water bottle to fill, to cut down on paper cup usage). Two nice, clean bathrooms are located just down the hall. There are also cubbies in the studio itself for valuables, which students are welcome to use. We have a full lending library of yoga books, and encourage students to borrow freely. Our store carries yoga mats, mat bags, yoga apparel, mat wash, and gift certificates are available for purchase in any amount.

GUIDELINES FOR PRACTICE

Please do not wear perfume or any strong scent

People with allergies can be very sensitive to scent. Also, lots of people sweating in a closed space is less stinky than lots of people all wearing different brands of perfume or deodorant.

Wear comfortable clothing

Not so tight it binds, not so loose it gets in your way. And please do not wear clothes that “gap” and are inappropriately revealing.

Practice on an empty stomach

If possible, don’t eat at least three hours before practice. If you know that this isn’t possible for you, eat easily digested food one hour before class.

No food or outside beverages inside the studio

If necessary, bottled water is okay, but remember we are trying to generate internal heat; constant sipping cools the body. After practice, drink plenty of pure water.

Bring your own mat

Shared mats are not hygienic; you may borrow one from us if one is available, until you are able to purchase your own, but please clean it afterward with the mat wipes provided. Please understand mats may be borrowed on a first come basis….we have only a few to borrow, and do occasionally run out of them.

Keep your eyes on your own practice

The practice is richer when it happens from the inside out. It’s not about comparing yourself with the person next to you. Be present with your own experience.

Be kind and loving to yourself

Rest when you need to. Honor where you are in your practice. Use the energy of those around to inspire, not diminish, you. Remember: you are perfect just as you are now, and yoga is meant to enhance that understanding and let that perfection shine. Have fun!
