Viniyoga


This class is taught by:

Dawn Summers

Dawn Summers was initially drawn to yoga in 1983 for inspiration and support during a major personal transition. She also wanted to improve certain spinal imbalances with the practice of yoga. She discovered yoga provided a source of comfort and stability, as well as improving her back and producing an overall feeling of well-being. She deepened her commitment to the practice of yoga and became a teacher in 1985 through Swami Satchidananda's Integral Yoga. Continuing her dedication, Dawn became certified again in 1992, successfully completing a two year teachers training program by Gary Kraftsow in the Viniyoga tradition of Krishnamacharya and his son, T.K.V. Desikachar. In 2001, she was the first to be certified at the most advanced level through American Viniyoga Institute - as a Yoga Therapist. She continues to study with her teacher, Gary Kraftsow (author of Yoga for Wellness, and Yoga for Transformation); and assists him with teacher's training programs.

Dale McInerney

Dale started to practice yoga in high school, and then moved on to other things. During a very stressful period in her life, a friend “dragged her back” to yoga. She has been practicing ever since.

After raising her family and 27 years as a science teacher, Dale retired and began her training as a yoga teacher. She teaches in the Viniyoga tradition, focusing on the breath and adapting the practice to the individual. She considers the perfect class to be when each person is moving to the rhythm of their own breath.

Dale moved from NY to Pacifica in 2015 to be close to family and is a frequent substitute at Ocean Yoga.

Level 1 Class is adapted to students in attendance with skillful use of breath and movement in postures, relaxation, breathing practices, meditation, and chanting in the Viniyoga tradition. The practice balances effort and ease through breath-centric postures and intelligent, progressive sequencing from simple to more challenging, created according to the needs and abilities of students.
