A beautiful, diverse and thoughtful group of students from several countries gathered for Session #1 of the American Viniyoga Institute's Viniyoga Foundations Program at Mount Madonna Center, Watsonville, CA on July 24, 2011. The first session of the program covered personal practice, the biomechanics of movement, sequencing, adaptation and an introduction to yoga philosophy and the yoga sutras.
The AVI faculty team for the Viniyoga Foundations Program, under the direction of Gary Kraftsow, Founder and Director of AVI included a team of AVI-trained and certified Viniyoga Teachers and Viniyoga Therapists: (Left to right) Juris Zinbergs, Laguna Beach CA, Kym House, Aptos, CA, Jennifer Sadugor, Sacramento, CA, Mirka Scalco Kraftsow, Sebastopol, CA, Gary Kraftsow, Oakland, CA, Dawn Summers, Pacifica, CA, Nancy Chapdelaine, Naperville, IL, Andy Sugerman, New York, NY, and Donna McCloskey, Austin, TX.
