The Role of ViniYoga and Meditation in Healing

Yoga is an ancient meditation practice using the influence of movement and body to influence the mind and spirit. Spiritual wellbeing is crucial to healing and is integral to optimal health. Viniyoga is a traditional form of yoga passed on through one-on-one mentorship.

In Sanskrit, Viniyoga means “appropriate application”. It is a holistic healing discipline that addresses the entire person (body, breath, mind, behaviors, emotions, & spirit) in an interconnected way. In this tradition, the tools of Yoga: āsana (movement & body position), prāṇāyāma (breathing), mantra, Vedic chanting, meditation, and more are modified to meet the individual needs and capacities of each person. As such, this discipline offers a broad range of tools for supporting health, promoting healing, and facilitating personal development and transformation.
