|Mission||We offer a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment for people of all capabilities and ages, from beginners to the very experienced student looking to deepen their practice. We offer classes in Yoga and T’ai Chi Chih®. We preserve, embrace and share these practices that activate, circulate and balance the vital force energy (Prana or Chi) for the promotion of health, well-being and joy. Both practices can bring improved balance, longevity and serenity, providing the opportunity for inner peace and tranquility.|
Founded in 1990, Ventura Yoga Studio is the oldest and most respected studio in the area. The teachers are exceptionally well trained and teach from the heart. Classes range from quietly restorative to challenging and vigorous. Considered to be one of the best equipped studios in the country, we provide all of the necessary props such as blankets, belts, blocks, chairs, bolsters and wall ropes. Every wall in the studio is outfitted with the Great Yoga Wall system. The use of these props allows for students to gain safe and productive access to poses.
When appropriate, our classes include inversions, such as Sirsasana (headstand) and Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulder stand), with many variations offered to accomplish them safely. Additionally we offer monthly training in Pranayama, the breath work. The fourth week of each month, Jeneth devotes all of her classes to the practice of Restorative poses and Pranayama.
Strength, endurance and flexibility increase along with a sense of inner peace and calm. This practice is more than physical. Guided by the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, this style of yoga provides access through the body and breath to the inner, subtle layers of consciousness, offering each of us a taste of true freedom.
In addition to our regular active pose classes (often referred to as Hatha Yoga) Ventura Yoga Studio offers specialty classes as well, including Restorative Yoga, Yoga for Seniors, All Wall Yoga and Yoga in the Chair.
Throughout the year we offer Teacher Training, Continuing Education for both 200 & 500 RYT's, workshops and intensives for all levels of students taught by renowned Certified Iyengar Teachers.
From raw beginners to advanced practitioners, we offer the opportunity for study and the development of a richer, deeper yoga practice.
