Program
Monday – Friday
2 hour morning Mysore style limited to 10 students only.
2-4:30pm Workshop

Mon – Ashtanga Essentials / 2.5 hour
Through practice and discussion, in this workshop we will explore the interconnectedness of the whole body. This workshop is sophisticated enough for all level of practitioner to benefit. We will focus on awareness and understanding to find grace, rather than physical vigor. This will create the context for your effort in daily practice to bear the most fruit.
We will explore the relationship between the axial and appendicular skeleton, the muscles of respiration, and the movements of the spine to create a matrix that will help you understand how alignment, breath and movement harmonize to form the basis for vinyasa, the foundation of the ashtanga yoga practice.
Tue – Hips, Knees, and Forward bends/ 2.5 hour
Paschimattanasana, or west stretching pose, describes forward bending as a means of opening the subtle channels on the posterior surface of the body. In this workshop, we will look at the three symmetrical forward bends, or paschimattanasana poses in the beginning of primary series to help us understand the fundamentals of hip and spinal flexion. We will then build on this foundation to look at asymmetrical forward bends and what they teach us about proper use of the hips and knees so that we can safely move towards advanced forward bending asanas.
Thurs – Core, jumping back and through/ 2.5 hour
We will explore how to utilize the full strength of the torso and band has to support our body weight. This will facilitate the smooth transition of energy necessary for graceful jump backs and jump throughs. We will also explore the spine as a smooth chain for the rolling poses in the second half of primary series.
Fri – the jewels in the lotus/ 2.5 hour
Deconstructing 5 of the most challenging poses in the Primary Series. Are you intimidated or struggling with Marychiasana D, Bhujapidasana, Supta Kurmasana, Garbha Pindasana and/or Setu Bandhasana? You’re not the only one! This workshop is structured to alleviate the anxiety and fear that can come to the surface when we think of practicing these challenging asana. We will discuss the fundamental principles of these asanas and develop a safe and effective plan to take the posture, or prepare the body for the posture one day!
Fee:
Full workshop $350
Afternoon workshops: $45 per session

That’s what asana is for”.

Pranayama: Saturday January 10th 1-4pm
“When the breath wanders the mind is unsteady; when the breath is still the mind is still.”
Your state of mind is reflected in your breath, by controlling the breath you control the state of mind. Yoga has the unique ability to restore the breath originally intended for our body and well-being yet most of us have lost this gift. Yoga’s breathing techniques, Pranayama, teaches us how to evaluate our asana practice, helps us define where we can pursue with more vigor and where to relax a little more. Through Pranayama, asana practice can become a meditation allowing us to find a deep connection our bandhas and to ourselves. You will learn light yet profound exercises to establish a personal Pranayama practice. All levels welcome.

Meditation: Sunday January 11th 1-4pm
“The self is not the individual body or mind, but rather that aspect deep inside each person that knows the truth.”
In today’s world we have everything we need to experience and enjoy life but we often suffer from anger, depression, unhappiness or dissatisfaction. A few minutes of meditation every day often connects us with our innate power to face life as it is and live it fully. In this workshop you will learn meditative techniques to focus to your mind in a single-point direction, as prescribed by patanjali. In a fun and friendly forum questions and open debate is encouraged. Come and give yourself the gift of Yoga.

FEE:
One day: $40
Full Weekend: $70

BIO: Pranayama has been the best tool for Alexandra’s own meditation practice and has enhanced her asana practice. After several years of an exclusively asana practice, Alexandra found herself missing something. She sought a Swami from India who introduced her to meditation while learning humility and compassionate living. Meditation has become a significant and consistent part of Alexandra’s yoga journey.

This class aims at revealing how a dedicated focus on your breath will lead you deeper into any asana or simply allow you to enter it in the first place. You will establish yourself firmly in the foundational chapters of the Ashtanga Pranayama with a clear physical understanding of the use of the bandhas/internal locks.
