“Jacci Gruninger, a bright guiding light in a dark, stormy sky.    Her personalized instruction, passion and wonderful touch will continue to guide me in my future yoga pursuits.”
Harold, MD

“Yoga with Jacci has taught me so much about my yoga practice and how to take that practice and apply it to other parts of my life.  Jacci’s knowledge of yoga and also her awareness of her students is like nothing I have ever experienced in a yoga class. Her class is fun, inspirational, and always restorative to my body, mind and spirit.”
Amy, MD

& compassion (and humor!) and allows me to explore my own in an inspired way.”
Lori, PA

“Under Jacci’s skillful and compassionate guidance, I have developed not only a stronger and more disciplined body but also an evolving integration of mind and spirit.  Jacci brings to bear in each class the strengths of an impressive formal background but it is her seamless blending of technique and intuitive insight that makes her a uniquely gifted master teacher.”

Slow, Strong, Subtle, Supportive Yoga

NEW Classes and times coming the week of July 12th – Stay tuned!

Find a sense of community during this time of transition, change and adapting by joining me and other class members live for online classes. Join us for one or both sessions.

This class is about saying YES to everything in our life and showing up to this task of BE-ing Human and thriving everyday. We’ll explore movement (yoga), breathing and various meditation techniques. Each class will be unique. But all classes will focus on gentle but strong movement, yin or a restorative practice.  We’ll work with the idea of SPANDA in each class- the pulse of energy that is in everything we do.

 

If you are looking for a place to land, to begin or continue your yoga journey, or a community of like-minded individuals, join me at any or all of these classes.

All classes are $4.50 plus a service charge.  You can also make a donation of your choosing based on your current financial situation or how your heart moves you.  The service charge is less for donations.

Online Yoga Etiquette

To get the most from your yoga class, especially if it is your first time attending, follow these simple tips.

Remove your shoes

Yoga is traditionally practiced in bare feet. You may want to leave socks on in the beginning for comfort and warmth and then remove them when you start to practice.  
 

Turn off your cell phone or anything that buzzes, beeps or makes noise (including watches)

 This is a great time to be tech free.
 

Listen to your body

Be respectful and follow the teachers sequence but also listen to your body and modify as you need too. This might mean not doing a posture or a pranayama if it doesn’t work for you.
 

Leave your ego behind

Yoga is not a competition. There aren’t any prizes for the best pose or longest held pranayama. Your practice will be different every single day. Be present to your body and emotions during practice.
 

Respect yourself and your peers

Practicing yoga in a group setting requires a commitment to presence and honoring one another. Observe silence before, during and after class although sighing and other soft sounds often happen in practice.

Don’t skip Savasana or relaxation

The last posture of class is usually savasana or corpse pose. During this time the body, mind and spirit integrates the work done during class. Give yourself this gift of stillness and quiet.
 

Check in with your teacher

Let your teacher know of any injuries or conditions that might affect your practice. This will allow your teacher to support your practice with modifications.

Breathe

It’s easy to forget to breathe in yoga when you aren’t familiar with the yoga poses. Be sure not to hold your breath during class.
 

Don’t eat at least 1 hour before practice

A full belly often makes for an uncomfortable yoga practice. It inhibits your ability to breathe fully and move your body. Don’t chew gum during class – it is distracting to others and potentially harmful.|
