Deconstruct to Reconstruct your asana from the ground up and the inside out. CSV Yoga is a non-linear, biomechanics-based, transitional style, that uses knowledge of the Deep Core Line myofascial muscle meridian, as a primary tool for effective function, physics, and flow in Vinyasa practices. 

Revolutionize traditional yoga poses with cutting-edge holistic anatomy and new generation alignment cueing. Learn how to engage the deep core line to decompress joints, stimulate circulation, blood flow, and stoke your metabolism. Use physics to gain more power with less effort in all your Poses and less time on your mat. Incorporate CSV Fundamental Cues into any style of yoga you practice or teach! Students love it!

Join Core Strength Vinyasa master teacher, Alyson Wish, for a deep dive into the principles of this yoga that can transcend into any practice and style you teach.

READ: The Happiness Project

"No two persons read the same book.” -Edmund Wilson

READ is a deep dive book club that provides the opportunity to connect with your peers on topics that will expand your mind. In our meetings, you will gain insight on how differently we each approach the same book and support one another as we tap deeper into the spiritual journey we are all on.

Meetings are held quarterly to discuss one book in its entirety. Each book is announced at the book club meeting and allotted 1.5 - 2 months reading time so that you can enjoy and absorb all that you're ingesting.

The intention of our book club is to further our learning and growth off the mat while creating space for our Ignite Yoga community to come together.

  • Each meeting is held at Ignite Yoga studio

  • Group discussion facilitated by Joane Wire

  • Hot tea and water provided

ReTREAT: North Carolina

ReTREAT: North Carolina

“I want to be as idle as I can, so that my soul may have time to grow.”

S P A C E is the intention of this ReTREAT. We’ll set out for the Blue Ridge Mountains to distance ourselves from the noise and constant pulling of our attention—turn off your cell, leave behind the demands, and drop the expectations. Use the time to be bored (which most of us have forgotten how to do), contemplate, and nestle into conversation with fellow participants. Through our guided discussions, meditation, yoga, and hikes, you’ll rediscover what it means to “have” space and learn how it’s used as a tool to maintain peace, clarity, and to support others. You’ll begin to feel different as you renew your spirit and connect back to your inner knowing.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Over the course of the ReTREAT, you will participate in stillness, movement, and discussion. More specifically:

  • seated meditation

  • walking meditation

  • hiking (optional)

  • massage (optional)

  • vinyasa yoga practice and workshops

  • gentle and restorative yoga practice

  • self inquiry through guided group discussion
