Jani is excited to be sharing Kaiut Yoga at Body Dynamics. She found Francisco Kaiut's work after a serious ski injury in 2010. As a result of this work, she has been able to continue the many activities she loves to do such as hiking, skiing and exercise classes at Body Dynamics. Jani is a long time member of the Bouder community. She was a practicing Physician Assistant for 30 years with Dr. Julie Carpenter and Dakota Ridge Family Medicine. In this last year, she has been studying with Francisco Kaiut in a year long teacher training and is now a certified Kaiut Yoga teacher. Jani is bringing together her knowledge and appreciation of bodies, her respect for healing, and her love of Kaiut yoga to share with you.
Jani instructs the following:
Kaiut Yoga is all about biomechanical health (or said another way, your freedom of movement). It has been designed to work through chronic pain and injuries, general aches and stiffness, and work for the inflexible, hyper flexible and the aging body.
Unlike most yoga that stretches muscles in extraordinary ways, Kaiut Yoga works from the joints. As such, it has a dramatic impact in countering the harmful effects of modern living - where most of us sit most of the the day - as well as the harmful impact to our bodies of consistent movement patterns such as frequent running or cycling, playing a certain sport for years, or our compensating behaviors for old sports or other injuries.
Kaiut Yoga us about maintaining or returning the body to optimal structure and functionality. It's about freedom of movement, physical system and energy flow. It's about keeping us as healthy, mobile and pain free as possible for as long as possible. With more freedom of body comes freedom of mind. It's about a better quality of life.
