ALL LEVEL MYSORE and ASHTANGA INTERMEDIATE PRANYAMA
with Michael Lear, E-RYT500, YACEP
Sunday, May 26 / 1:00am-3:30pm
(*Mysore Practice 1:00-2:15pm...Break...2:30-3:30pm Pranayama Practice)
Central to the progress of the committed ashtanga student is the practice of Ashtanga’s Pranayama Sequence. With an emphasis on Kumbhaka (Breath holds), this practice increases energy, and cultivates a higher degree of focus and quietude. Through this new heightened breath awareness, the relationship between the mind’s activity and oxygen utilization is unveiled. Gaining greater control over the mind and allowing judgments to fall away, can have a dramatic impact on your asana practice experience. We’ll also discuss the breath’s role in maintaining blood alkalinity, reducing oxidative stress and, managing anxiety. We will have a Mysore practice followed by a short break, and then our Pranayama practice. Participants are asked to have an established/regular primary series practice (or equivalent).
YA Continuing Education Credits are Available.

Join us for a six week course as we dive into the basic postures, alignment and breathing of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice. You’ll be guided through the fundamentals, and on the last class, you will be part of the regular Saturday morning Mysore class, with your instructor guiding you along the way. Mysore is the traditional way to learn yoga - moving through the set sequence of poses you’ll be taught, and ultimately moving at your own pace, with plenty of individual help from your teacher.
