YOGA OFFERINGS

YIN YOGA 

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga where we hold postures (asanas) for long periods of time. It helps to calm and decompress the nervous system, relieve stress, alleviate pain and tension by targeting deeper parts of the body such as the joints, ligaments, and fascia while using principles of traditional Chinese medicine.

FEEL GOOD FLOW

Brittany incorporates many different styles of yoga into one Feel Good Flow for the body. This flow helps one to connect deeper to what feels good in the body while maintaining quality alignment, breath practices, and meditation.

TRAUMA INFORMED YOGA

A gentle and therapeutic approach to practicing yoga. Trauma Informed Yoga helps one to reconnect with their body, release tension and physical pain, assist with relaxation, sleep and mood, and to regain a feeling of safety within the body.

“At first, I was concerned if my current level of yoga would be in line with what would be offered on the retreat, but after looking back I have a renewed sense of enjoyment for my yoga practice and have committed to regularly practice yoga and meditation. My curiosity has been sparked!”

– Chrissie Petrillio

“Brittany’s yoga class was grounding, personable, and the perfect way to start my weekend. By the end I felt truly centered, connected, and grateful. I really enjoyed the way Brittany used light touch to help guide me into a better posture and the addition of essential oils, music, and sound tools was the cherry on top of a wonderful experience.” 

– Katrina Cantwell

YOGA FAQS

Click on the question below to view the answer

DON’T YOU HAVE TO BE FLEXIBLE TO DO YOGA?2021-06-04T05:15:14-07:00

Absolutely not! The asana (physical postures) is only one part of the whole that makes up yoga. However, after a few months of practicing regularly (3-5 times per week), you will definitely notice increased flexibility! We all have to start somewhere, and why not start now? Your body, mind, and spirit will thank you.

HOW DO I BEGIN A YOGA PRACTICE?2021-06-04T05:14:46-07:00

There are so many quality books out there (recommended reading list below), and online videos you can find! My true recommendation is to find a local studio where you live with good reviews and jump into a class. Don’t judge your experience from your first class. Perhaps the studio offers class for beginners and that can be where you start. Many teachers also offer one on one’s and that may be a good place to start, too. There is nothing better than opening up your social network to more conscious, non-judgemental individuals who love and support you. Deep bows to my sangha (community) at Zen Spot Eugene, Sage Yoga and Wellness in Boise, and other beautiful studios in Eugene.

WHERE DID YOU BEGIN YOUR YOGA PRACTICE?2022-07-12T12:04:20-07:00

My first experience with yoga was Kundalini yoga while I was earning my Bachelors of Science in Psychology at the University of Oregon. From there, I explored meditation and Hatha yoga. A few years after graduating from UO I discovered a local studio (thanks to a dear friend Angela Villa) and fell in love with hot vinyasa at Zen Spot Hot Yoga. Yoga is the first activity that has truly helped my body and mind. I have always had a passion for movement. Through dance, Taekwondo, and cheerleading, I endured physical and mental challenges. Yoga has unraveled some of the damage I did to my body and has opened my heart and mind to a truly divine path. Deep bows to my teachers Satyavani and Michael for encouraging me to do their teacher training through the Zen Spot Institute. I love you and owe so much to you for this beautiful path you have showed me.

WHAT IS YOGA?2021-06-04T05:09:22-07:00

Yoga is the sanskrit term for “union” and “discipline.” It is said to be the union of breath, mind, and the senses. Yoga originated in India over 5,000 years ago. Patanjali states that the practice “becomes firmly grounded when cultivated properly and for a long period of time uninterruptedly.” This is why it is called a practice. We must practice and continue this journey throughout this lifetime. My teaching continues to grow and transform, as well as my personal yoga practice. I hope to inspire you to develop and find a love for this ancient practice and carry it throughout your life.

According to Patanjali there are 8 limbs of yoga:

  • Yamas and Niyamas (personal ethical standards and self-discipline)
  • Asana (the physical postures of yoga)
  • Pranayama (breathwork)
  • Pratyahara (withdrawing from the senses or directing our attention internally)
  • Dharana (concentration)
  • Dhyana (meditation or contemplation)
  • Samadhi (a state of ecstasy or more importantly recognizing a profound connection to the divine and realizing an interconnectedness with all living things.)
