Ventura Yoga Studio -
Where your potential for growth is boundless.
Founded in 1990, Ventura Yoga Studio is the oldest and most respected studio in the area. The teachers are exceptionally
well trained and teach from the heart. Classes range from quietly restorative to challenging and vigorous. Considered to
be one of the best equipped studios in the country, we provide all of the necessary props such as blankets, belts, blocks, chairs, bolsters and wall ropes.
Every wall in the studio is outfitted with the Great Yoga Wall system. The use of these props, as developed by B.K.S. Iyengar,
allows for students to gain safe and productive access to poses.
When appropriate, our classes include inversions, such as Sirsasana (headstand) and Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulder stand), with many variations offered to accomplish them safely. Additionally we offer monthly training in Pranayama, the breath work. The fourth week of each month, Jeneth devotes all of her classes to the practice of Restorative poses and Pranayama.
Strength, endurance and flexibility increase along with a sense of inner peace and calm. This practice is more than physical. Guided by the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, this style of yoga provides access through the body and breath to the inner, subtle layers of consciousness, offering each of us a taste of true freedom.
In addition to our regular active pose classes (often referred to as Hatha Yoga) Ventura Yoga Studio offers specialty classes as well, including Restorative Yoga, Yoga for Seniors and All Wall Yoga.
Throughout the year we offer Teacher Training, Continuing Education for both 200 & 500 RYT's, workshops and intensives for all levels of students taught by renowned Certified Iyengar Teachers.
From raw beginners to advanced practitioners, we offer the opportunity for study and the development of a richer, deeper yoga practice.
T’ai Chi Chih®
Come feel and share the Chi! Ventura Yoga Studio offers classes and group practices several times a week.
Beginners are always welcome!
This moving meditation, also known as Joy thru Movement, is a form of Qigong/ChiKung, originated by T'ai Chi Chuan and Zen Master Justin Stone. Not a martial art, this peaceful, gentle practice consists of 19 stand alone movements and 1 pose. T'ai Chi Chih is easy to do and easy to learn by young and old alike.
No particular level of fitness is required, and the practice can be modified for those with physical challenges. It can even be done seated in a chair! This practice brings strength, balance, energy and serenity.
T'ai Chi Chih is taught only by Accredited Teachers and can usually be learned in 8-10 classes. There have been numerous studies from reputable researchers (UCLA & University of Wisconsin) regarding the benefits of T'ai Chi Chih.
