After that we’ll move through energizing standing poses and then go to the floor to address seated postures and the finishing, cooling down portion of the practice.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a healing, energizing and fun yoga practice. We’ll offer modifications for all postures so you can make the practice work specifically for you and your body. By the end of the six weeks you’ll be able to flow through half of the Ashtanga Primary Series...and receive a discount on a class pass or membership as a dividend of attending Ashtanga Yoga Basics!

FLOAT THROUGH YOUR PRACTICE
with Cassandra Kish
Saturday, January 19, 2019 / 1:00-2:30pm / $35 pay by 1-18…$40 day of workshop
Having a flowing practice revolves around having a solid idea of how to distribute your weight and balance that with resistance. When we learn to move the body through open space, making decisions about where to emphasize tension and where to release we end up at a deeper level of consciousness in our practice as well as in our lives. Once float is achieved there is a steadiness that starts creeping into our lives. Overcoming stress becomes easy and we have tools to see how being responsible for all that has shown up in our lives is the most powerful position. Join us for this Workshop to learn how to float through your practice and life.
YIN YOGA…THE ART OF SLOWING DOWN
with Sally Miller
Sunday, January 20, 2019 / 3:00-5:00pm / $35 pay by 1-19…$40 day of workshop
Yin Yoga is a powerful compliment to our flowing Vinyasa practice. Through passive postures held close to the ground, Yin Yoga energizes and harmonizes the flow of prana through the fascia. In practical terms, this corresponds to an increase in range of motion and flexibility. Similar to Restorative Yoga , Yin challenges our deeper connective tissues to release tension and return to a more pliable, fluid state. Don't miss this opportunity to give your muscles a break, and explore your yin side. This workshop is open to all levels
THE YOGA SUTRAS OF PATANJALI
with Dr. Mahesh Mangalick
Sunday, February 3, 2019 / 1:00-3:00pm / $35 pay by 2-2…$40 day of workshop
Sage Patanjali coded the entire knowledge of Yoga Meditation that had come down through many generations orally in Guru-Disciple tradition in India, in 195 succinct aphorisms, organized in four chapters, about 200 years before Christ. Known as Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, these aphorisms, or statements, were very brief, for ease of memorization, especially because there were no means to record during those times. Yoga knowledge is based on Sankhya Philosophy, which explains that life happens when mind gains awareness from union with Pure Consciousness of ONE Source. Yet, mind with ego remains unaware of presence of The ONE Source within the body. With systematic practice of Ashtanga Yoga, mind purifies and separates from union with Pure Consciousness. That is when ONE Source reveals in its Glorious State Alone, called Kaivalya. This is Nirvana, or Moksha, or Liberation from bondage of life-death cycle. This workshop will elaborate the essence of Yoga Knowledge in easy to understand language, with emphasis on Practices most suited to the current fast paced lifestyle...and is open to everyone!
