What is Avita Yoga?

Yoga for a Lifetime

Avita Yoga® uses a variety of shapes and sequences to identify restrictions that impede natural movement and freedom. These attainable shapes weave throughout the body to promote healing in the here and now, not someday. The results-first approach delivers physical relief as well as peace of mind. It’s a practice nearly anyone can do to bring more freedom and joy to life.

“I remember Jeff saying that this work is about creating mobility in the parts of the body that need greater freedom and creating stability in the parts of the body that need stability. It brought it all together for me right in that moment, and I understood what I was doing there. I remember softening into my body and asking, 'OK body, what do you need from me now? ”

A Practice for Everyone

Avita Yoga is for any person, age, and body type. No experience is necessary. Avita can provide healing relief if you suffer from physical pain due to chronic illness, injury, or aging. We use the muscles to target the bones and joints where the problems originate. We build natural strength while resolving harmful compensation patterns and undoing the blockages to lasting freedom.

Peace of Mind

Avita is a way to tap into the deeply healing nature of the mind. This practice has helped many people work through chronic pain and debilitating injuries, but perhaps most importantly, it is a practice for peace. A spiritual practice can mean different things, but with Avita Yoga we use healing sensation that comes through the shapes to bring us closer to a peaceful state of mind. It works.

Lifetime of Patterning

We are born with and develop unique patterns and tendencies that shape our bodies and our lives. The cumulative effects of the physical and emotional trials of life can build negative habits of the body and mind. These compensatory patterns cannot be “fixed”; instead, they can be identified, unwound, and undone. Avita Yoga addresses these patterns and simultaneously resolves them at their source.

How it Works

Avita works primarily on the connective tissue to dissolve restrictions in and around the joints. This has a resonating effect throughout the rest of the body. Movement begets movement and enhances blood flow, nourishing the body and removing toxins. Beneficial fluids within the joints are cleansed to help restore healthy function and resolve the cause of stiffness and pain. Lasting results come because the nervous system is calm throughout the process.

Why it Works

When it comes to chronic conditions, we tend to make the pain the problem when it is simply the messenger. Often the location of pain and the source of the problem are not in the same place. Avoiding or eliminating the pain does not address the true problem or the underlying compensatory patterns associated with it. Rather than chase the pain around the body, Avita Method uses attainable shapes to source the origin of the pain and resolve it.

Results-First Approach

Avita is not a workout but a work-in. The goal of Avita is improved circulation, health, and function, not the ability to perform or advance the shape and “get it right.” It is unique for each and every practitioner, which is why newcomers are always in good company and often get quick results. There are no mirrors or heat. The practice is naturally meditative, and students develop the ability to calm their mind and body so rejuvenation can occur.
