LIST OF WORKSHOPS:
Awakening The Core: Bandhas, Breath and More (2 hours)
In this workshop become more intimately rooted to the internal network of the bandhas while tuning to the central axis of the body. Properly understanding how to engage the bandhas not only bring lightness to the body but also stability and clarity to the mind. Learn to become more closely connected to this often elusive and mysterious part of the practice of Ashtanga yoga, appropriate for all levels.
Dynamic Transitions (2.5 hours)
Learn the dynamics of flight. In this class experience helpful techniques accessing the sometimes-daunting part of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, the jump-back and jump-through. Though challenging, need not be elusive to the practice, and believe it or not, the primary series prepares one to do so. Time will be taken to break down the parts and give useful tools to build inner strength and allow vinyasas to naturally become fluid and graceful. Building upon the jump through we will also experiment with jumping into and exiting out of postures such as bhujapidasana, bakasana, tittibahasana, astavakrasana, and vrksasana for example. Open to all who enjoy a little challenge and fun experimentation!
The Art of Ashtanga Yoga (2.5 hours)
Through consistent practice our time on the mat can develop into a work of art, creating stillness in motion. Reaching a flow state in the practice comes from uniting all internal elements to then rest
in awareness within our physical being. In this workshop we will explore how to create depth in the practice creating art in motion, while developing conscious attention and strength throughout the body, mind and soul. We will first start by cutting away excess energy draining movements as well as connecting to the downward and upward flow of energy to then sit in a space of simplicity and
concentration. This will be an inspiring workshop giving space to explore and express the beauty of yoga in every movement and every breath.
The Gateway Poses of Primary Series and Intermediate Series (2.5 hours)
All postures in the sequences of Ashtanga yoga are important. However, in this workshop we will take a closer look at core the postures in both Primary and Intermediate series that are integral to
opening and strengthening the body mind to set the stage and foundation to more intelligently grown and evolve in the practice.
