Aimée Parnell began practicing Iyengar yoga in 1999. After many years of self-guided practice and informal teaching while working on coastal wildlife conservation projects in Equatorial Africa, she obtained her RYT-200 yoga certification in 2014 at Shoshoni Ashram in Colorado.
Aimée has taught gentle and vinyasa yoga at studios and health clubs, adaptive chair yoga at senior centers, yoga classes for beginners, partner yoga to expectant couples, and mindfulness and movement meditation to both high school and preschool students. She earned her prenatal yoga certification at Kripalu in October 2017. In 2018, Aimée attended a workshop with Tao Porchon-Lynch, the centenarian yoga teacher who had so profoundly inspired her path.
Aimée's classes are heartfelt, lighthearted, and accessible to all abilities and bodies. Props will be available to support safe and comfortable alignment. We will shape our body and breath as a moving meditation and conduit for positive energy.
With a B.A. in Psychology, it is natural that Aimee's instruction includes elements of mindfulness-based stress reduction, an evidence-based program that offers secular mindfulness training to assist people with stress, anxiety, depression, and pain. She also includes EMDR exercises, as well as self-acupressure and self-massage techniques, having much benefited from these healing practices in her own life.
Cueing focuses on subtle adjustments to alignment, breath, and muscle engagement that bring the pose to the still point at the edge of ease and effort. Imagery and metaphor are drawn from the natural world. This will allow us to release blocked energy back into its natural flow.
Through this process, we become more aware of our connection with nature and each other, develop compassion for all beings, and cultivate an awareness of our ability to direct the powerful energy that is woven between and within all things.
10-class pass: $100 (excludes workshops)
Private 1 hour class: $60
I'm one superstar mind-gardener.
Aimee led us in private restorative yoga sessions, in the lovely studio space she has there. This was a very special treat - I love yoga, but haven't been able to take classes in a few years due to disc problems. However, Aimee researched what yoga positions would work well for me, and I was able to enjoy yoga for the first time in years!
What a hidden gem. Aimee is a skilled teacher with a compassionate presence and gift for language. The studio is welcoming, and it’s clear that she and her family are eager to greet guests. This is what yoga is all about.
Aimee is fabulous, the space is beautiful, and the environment is very relaxed and welcoming. My favorite yoga studio ever.
I took my preschool class on a field trip to East View Farm. We had a wonderful time. Aimee harnessed the group's energy and helped us to have fun while experiencing a wide variety of yoga movements. The kids said their favorite parts were going through human tunnels, being rocket ships and snakes.
