Miriam Fasoli currently offers vinyasa yoga, yin yoga, restorative yoga, & prenatal yoga to clients in the Palo Alto, Los Altos, Mountain View, Sunnyvale area. At this time, Miriam teaches prenatal vinyasa yoga at Blossom Birth in Palo Alto and vinyasa yoga only to local corporations and private clients. If you belong to a corporation or are interested in a private yoga session, please contact Miriam.
Reasons to consider a private yoga session with Miriam:
Miriam's classes consists of:
• a brief reading, serving as the seed for the rest of the class
• hip openers
• neutral poses for hips
Miriam emphasizes the importance of finding a sense of ease (sukha) in each pose, while exerting some effort (sthira). While most students find themselves sweating by the end of the class, Miriam invites you to sync your breath with movement, to acknowledge the sensations, thoughts, and emotions that arise, and to trust the wisdom that resides in your body. Miriam invites you to consider that vinyasa yoga is not necessarily about "achieving" the "perfect" pose (asana); it is about a practice of looking into oneself and cultivating a sense of loving-kindness and ahimsa (non-violence) towards oneself. Whether you are a "seasoned" yogi/yogini or have never tried yoga before, Miriam welcomes you.
Reasons to try/continue with Yin Yoga:
• You tend to overbook yourself and/or overexert yourself
• You struggle with high blood pressure,
• You have high anxiety (or others have told you that you are quite "anxious")
Yin Yoga serves as a wonderful complement to the active (yang) lifestyle of a plethora of those who live in the Silicon Valley. A Yin Yoga session consists of several poses, held between 2-7 minutes each. During these minutes, the fascia opens up and the subtle body is activated.
You're a mom or a mom-to-be. You may or may not have practiced yoga before pregnancy and want to engage in movement that is both safe for yourself and your baby. Miriam incorporates strength-building poses in her classes to aid in pregnancy and the birthing process and aims to create a sense of community that may dissolve a sense of isolation that many expectant moms may experience. Most classes include a sequence woven from an inspiring quote at the beginning and end of the practice. Students are offered ways to challenge themselves and to create ease for themselves and are encouraged to listen to their bodies to differentiate what would be most appropriate for them at the time.
