Corporate Wellness & Stress Management Education

The option to go from workstation to yoga right on your premises is appealing and beneficial. I provide yoga as a turnkey operation by organizing the space, arranging for discounted yoga supplies, creating classes for first-time practitioners through seasoned yogis. Yoga at Work is a proven system for managing stress.

In addition, happier, healthier employees have

  • Increased productivity & decreased absenteeism
  • Higher morale, lower turnover
  • Fewer insurance claims for common illnesses

Yoga Therapy

Yoga Therapy can be a personal journey or small group endeavor into the deeper aspects of the healing properties of a yogic lifestyle. Practical applications manage chronic conditions, effect wholesome change and create a positive outlook on life. Change is not always easy but with guidance and support to look at your world anew, change can be a welcome and energizing event. I am available to consult with your medical provider(s) to balance your care wholistically.

Elder Yoga

Adapting your life and practice with chronic health conditions or restrictions is the work of us all. Creating a class in your community enhances quality of life, joy and commitment to health. Learn how we can build a community in your neighborhood.

Yoga & Emotional Healing Workshops

These workshops are a format for processing and expanding healing in a small, same-sex group. The benefits of practicing healing asana, experiencing safety within a group dynamic, sharing and writing have proven to have strong positive results. There is completeness to Y&EH that invites healthy introspection resulting in a deep sense of well-being about oneself. Healing from within.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga (also known as Therapeutic Yoga) blends supported postures, gentle yoga, breath work, hands-on healing, and guided meditation to engage your inner resources to heal body and spirit.

About Vimukti Aslan

Vimukti Victoria Aslan, C-IAYT, E-RYT500, YACEP, brings her curiosity and compassion to bear as a certified yoga instructor and yoga therapist in Integral Yoga® Hatha Level I, II, III, Gentle and Therapeutic Yoga, Stress Management and Raja Yoga.

The use and breadth of the physical body has always fascinated me. I studied dance early and the theatre arts called to me. My years at New York University continued the study of the body and voice in theater. I continued on the path of creativity working with incredibly talented directors, writers, singers and dancers in the world of avant garde theater and music. Eventually, I entered the world of yoga, meditation and martial arts obtaining a black belt in aikido in the USAF school under Yoshimitsu Yamada Sensei, Shihan. Each of these forms reveals how body, speech and mind must work in harmony to bring consciousness.

My interest in the restorative powers of Therapeutic Yoga led me to certify as a teacher under Cheri Clampett. I am a registered member of Yoga Alliance®, a certified instructor for The Yoga of Recovery® and a happy member of the Integral Yoga Teacher's Association. I am also certified as a Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

My journey continues toward compassion, patience and love through my yoga practice to live in an easeful body, a peaceful mind and enjoy a useful life. Bringing that to others is a joyful service.

The 8 Limbs are defined as Yama (Great Vows or Abstinence), Niyama (Observance) , Asana (Posture), Pranayama (Breath Control), Pratyahara (Sense Withdrawal), Dharana (Concentration), Dhyanna (Meditation) and Samadhi (Contemplation, Absorption, Superconscious State).
