Free Kaiut Yoga classes will be offered from June 18 to July 15 at the newly opened Peaked Hill Studio at 7 Woodland Center, next to Rise dance studio in Vineyard Haven. According to a press release, Kaiut Yoga has been designed to work through chronic pain and injuries, general aches and stiffness, and works for the inflexible, hyper-flexible, and the aging body.
Unlike most yoga that stretches muscles in extraordinary ways, Kaiut Yoga works from the joints. As such, it has a dramatic impact in countering the harmful effects of modern living — where most of us sit most of the day — as well as the harmful impact to our bodies of consistent movement patterns such as frequent running or cycling, playing a certain sport for years, or our compensating behaviors for old sports or other injuries.
Kaiut Yoga is about maintaining or returning the body to optimal structure and functionality. It’s about freedom of movement, physical system, and energy flow. It’s about keeping us as healthy, mobile, and pain-free as possible for as long as possible. With more freedom of body comes freedom of mind. It’s about a better quality of life.
The class schedule is: Mondays, 5:30 to 6:30 pm; Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 7:30 to 8:30 am; Saturdays and Sundays, 8:30 to 9:30 am. (From June 25 to July 7, there will be three classes a week, taught Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday.) Walk-ins only if there is room; classes are limited to 20, and mats and props are provided.
