Ahimsa Vinyasa Yoga currently being taught at Island Yoga in Alameda.
Cristin developed 'ahimsa yoga' because she
believes so deeply in the fusion of yoga and compassion which she incorporates at every level of her practice and teachings. She wants to be part of global change by helping others develop their coping skills so that we, as a community, operate from a place of compassion, kindness, and peace. The capacity to engage with, and embrace, the world with love starts from within. Cristin hopes to help develop that capacity in each person whose mat she is blessed to come in contact with.
All-Levels Ahimsa Vinyasa Yoga is a vinyasa flow yoga steeped in compassion and kindness while encouraging individuals to safely challenge themselves within their comfort zone. Classes are set to music and a warm environment while modifications are taught for each asana. Beginners through advanced yogis all benefit while practicing side by side, inspiring and sharing the energy and wisdom of each other.

Join Johanna and her 11-year old daughter Emelie
for this four class series for mothers* and their daughters, ages 9 and up, who are curious about yoga and/or wish to deepen their practice together from a feminine perspective. The classes are both playful and mindful and each class is presented within a theme.

Yoga is for everyone. Regardless of our age or stage, yoga meets us where we're at. For children, Yoga can help develop
their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. Their concentration can improve along with their ability to relax and feel calm, which helps them to cope with the conflict and stress of an increasingly hectic world. More than being just great exercise, Yoga is a way of life that teaches Kids the ancient system of practice which focuses postures/asanas along with healthy food styles for the body, breathing & relaxation techniques for the mind, concentration exercises for the intellect and meditation for the soul. It encourages kids to play, connect more deeply with their inner self, and develop a receptive relationship to the natural world around them. It encourages self-esteem and body awareness, and fosters cooperation and compassion, instead of competition. Yoga helps our little ones to explore the ethics of

Employing somatic principles during the exploration of yoga asana, Somatic Yoga cultivates a deeper sense of body awareness,
allowing us greater ease in movement, and comfort in being in our bodies. Sharpen your reflexes, get in touch with your inner infant, introduce your head and tail, and awaken your senses as we look at traditional yoga poses. Through meditation, imagery, breath and an open sense of curiosity, we will excavate our bodies from the inside out; relying on developmental patterns inherent in our own body/mind make-up to guide us to a greater understanding of our relationship to yoga. This class is both a launching point for novice students and a deeper exploration for advanced students.
