Exploring Ashtanga is a new series of classes that will highlight different facets of this practice to help students deepen their understanding and enhance personal exploration. Come join us and discover how Ashtanga Yoga is a practice rich with subtleties and endless levels of discovery.
Vinyasa, the signature of Ashtanga Yoga, is the graceful integration of posture, gaze and breath. When practiced correctly, vinyasa brings a tremendous expansion of prana, or vital energy, and this expansion is crucial to Ashtanga’s profound transformational effect. In this workshop, we will explore the vinyasa of the Primary Series. We will practice moving in and out of the postures with a steady and easeful breath, following the flow of prana through the body. We will explore the jump-throughs and jump-backs, and modifications will be offered for everyone.
Some familiarity with the Primary Series is recommended, as we will not address the alignment of the poses themselves. Those who are learning the Primary Series are most welcome to attend, however, and advanced students are encouraged to attend as well. Everyone will walk away with new resources to cultivate a smoother, stronger, and more rhythmic practice.
