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.

Upside Down!

Are you looking to spice up and add to your repertoire of yoga inversions? Curious about the proper alignment principles vital for success in hand/head/forearm/shoulder stand? Need a break from holiday scramble? Inversions—the perfect antidote to stressful shopping and excessive cookie consumption. Join your fellow yogis for an afternoon of playful and challenging yoga sprinkled with laughter and a ton of upside-down time! This 2-hour workshop will include elements of flow as well as ample time breaking down both the basic as well as variations of handstand, forearm balance, headstand, and shoulder stand. The class will conclude with a well-deserved cool down leading into sweet, sweet Savasana. Appropriate for those with some familiarity with inversions.

Questions: Contact Miriah at miriah.opendoorwrj@gmail.com.

Check out  an article Miriah wrote about inversions here. Class size is limited to 15 so register early!$30 if registered before December 3, $35 thereafter.

Fusion for Back Strength

Join Jenny for the third in her series of 3 classes this Fall for developing back strength (10/28, 11/18, 12/16—you do not need to have attended previous classes in the series to participate.) Come explore in depth how the deep muscles of the spine support not only back bending poses but also how the entire core helps sustain us throughout our everyday life. If you have upper back and neck tension, or end each day with a persistent ache in your lower back, this is the class for you! Each practice will begin with core moves that target the abdominals and deep spinal muscles. Class will then move into kneeling, standing, lunging, balancing, and even flight! While there will be moments of flow, this class will help us slow down and reconnect with our deep strength, building mindfulness about the anatomical and felt experience of the core. At the same time, there will be time and space to unwind and wind down at the end of the week, and enjoy the relaxation of restorative poses and the internal "rinse" of gentle twists.

Yin Yoga

Yin is back! And just in time. While yin is great in any season, it is especially right for winter, when this quieter, still practice is in tune with nature. The long-held seated or reclined poses work to decongest the long muscles and joint sites in our bodies, helping with postural alignment and overall ease of movement. They also do wonders for outlook and mood, a great way to start the year. all levels welcome. Sign up to ensure a spot.

  • "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!
