After you sign up and are part of Avita you will be able to get started with the first videos. Practice one a day to get a feeling for the practice while you wait for your Avita materials package to arrive.
All of our videos are available online 24-7.
When you are viewing/listening to the video as you practice Jeff may be assisting someone that does not appear on the screen. Each video class is designed to be practiced for the most part with your eyes closed. Listening to the words and applying them to your body, the same way students practice with Jeff live in the classroom. Students in the room often glance to see that they are interpreting the cues properly and you are encouraged to do the same with the video.
Yes, there is a thoughtful and healing progression through this practice. Each class is unique and supported by the one before. Each succeeding video class will lead you through your body and mind a healing, harmonizing way that includes the systems, tissues and cells. It’s not about the shape, and it’s certainly not about “accomplishing” them. It’s about what the shape does for you.
Avita is not performance based and perfection is never required. The “right” shape is the one that brings the restriction (and the sensation that comes with it) to your awareness, and the healing light of you mind. Sound cliche? It’s not, it works. It’s results that we want. Results that will show up and help you in your day to day life.
When in doubt reduce pressure and/or support more. Your body cannot heal under stress, and while the practice uses compression and pressure it should never cause duress. your breathing rate and heart rate should remain quite calm and slow throughout the practice. Remember you don’t need to achieve the perfect shape. Listen to Jeff’s words and apply them knowing that LESS is MORE.
Avita Yoga works primarily on the connective tissue to dissolve restrictions in and around the joints. Resolving restrictions locally has a resonating effect throughout the rest of the body. Movement begets movement. Blood flow increases to areas where it was once lacking which bring nourishment to the cells while simultaneously removing damaging toxins.
It’s OK to practice Avita Yoga® once you have your doctor’s approval and any recommended physical therapy is completed. At this point, you can begin the online classes with confidence and move toward full mobility and health. The classes progress over time in a way that brings attention and detail to the movable parts of the body. It’s not just the shapes we do. It’s how they are practiced and sequenced in each class to bring predictable results.
We’ll often target the stiffness brought on by the surgery, knowing that some discomfort is normal. As always, practice sustainably with mild to moderate pressure. Over time, there is a cumulative effect when we practice three to four times per week.
If you are like most, you will want to continue practice when traveling. If you can travel with a few simple materials like bolster, mat and strap that’s great. But once you get a feel for the practice, it’s easy to make shift on occasion with a firm pillow, belt and a blanket for a mat. A little goes a long way when we travel, practice when you can.
Pricing for Avita Online is based on the most cost-effective delivery of yoga for all ages at this price.
