Geoff Mackenzie returns May 5-7

Geoff Mackenzie

We’re excited to welcome Geoff Mackenzie back to Whitehorse for yet another great Ashtanga workshop!

Schedule Overview:
Fri. May 5, 6-8:30 pm: workshop.
Sat. May 6, 7-9 am: Mysore practice; 10 am – 12:30 pm: workshop.
Sun. May 7, 7-9 am: Mysore practice; 10 am – 12:30 pm: workshop.

Friday May 5:, 6-8:30 pm: Methodology 101
Everything you need to know about the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method.
This workshop will set you up to successfully and confidently join a “Mysore-style” (assisted practice) class. We will cover: the basics of posture, breathing and focus; the fundamental opening and closing postural sequences; progressive adaptations to accommodate all experience levels; basic philosophy and much, much more. No experience necessary.

Saturday May 6, 7-9 am: Mysore (teacher-assisted) self-practice.

10 am: Transitions

How to roll, step, jump, float, fly and ….

Ashtanga Vinyasa and other practice systems routinely ask us to “put the whole weight of the body on the two hands and lift the body up off the floor.” (KP Jois, Yoga Mala.) This workshop will offer techniques which prepare you to effectively and fluidly bear weight on the hands, bringing more dynamism and balance and confidence to your posture practice. Be ready to work hard and have fun!

Some yoga experience recommended.

Sunday May 7, 7-9 am: Mysore (teacher-assisted) self-practice.

10 am: Intermediate Series for all! 

This workshop will be a light-hearted exploration of the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, where options for adding this powerful tool to your practice kit will be encouraged and explored. Workshop will include breath work and lots of opportunity for your questions!

Some yoga experience recommended.

Where? Grace Space, Horwood’s Mall.

Registration fees
Workshops: $50 each
Mysore: $35 each
Whole weekend: $195
Early bird (by March 25) $180.

Fall schedule

Hello yogis! Thank you for your patience while we waited out some uncertainty about our practice space. We are now back at Alpine Bakery for the next few months at least.

Led classes are back on Fridays! We will alternate between full and half led primary. You are welcome to come to either session and practice up until the asana you are currently at in the sequence.

Friday Sept 30 is the only restorative offering until November as Full moon is Saturday October 15 and New Moon is Sunday Oct 30.

Fall newsletter & important updates

AYC survey – we want to hear from you!

Please take two minutes to fill out our survey. It’s anonymous and will help us plan our fall schedule and offering. We appreciate all feedback!

Developing a home practice

Renovations are underway at Alpine Bakery, which means we are temporarily without a practice space. What a great opportunity to develop a home-based practice! Nonetheless, it’s also great to practice with a group of wonderful souls every morning and we are working hard to find another space to practice if the bakery isn’t available soon. We will update our Facebook page and website as soon as we have an update.

In the meantime, there are many Mysore resources out there, including this You Tube video of Led Primary Series from Purple Valley Goa and these cheat sheets for the Sun Salutations and Primary Series poses from Ashtanga Yoga Info.

Schedule

We are in the process of updating our schedule (which will be published once we have a home). That information will also be posted on our Facebook page and website when available. Your survey results will help us make decisions about scheduling, so please fill it out.

Upcoming classes with AYC teachers

Tammy Reis is teaching an eight-week beginner Ashtanga series starting Thurs. Sept. 22 until Nov. 10 at 7:30 PM. Register by emailing tammy.reis37@gmail.com.

Karen McColl is teaching restorative yoga at Breath of Life on Sundays fromSun. Sept 11 until Oct 2 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM. Register by calling Breath of Life at 668-3569. Karen also teachers yin yoga at BOL every Wednesday at 7:15 PM.

Last but not least… Geoff Mackenzie

We are thrilled that Geoff Mackenzie is visiting not once, but twice this fall! If you’ve been planning to start a regular Ashtanga practice but haven’t yet committed, now is the time. If you are brand new to Ashtanga – welcome! – we recommend you get at least a couple of weeks of practice under your belt before Geoff’s visit. AYC teachers are more than happy to help you out (once we have a space, which will be soon, we hope)!

Geoff’s Whitehorse visits:
Friday Oct 28 –  Sunday Oct 30
and
Friday Dec 2 – Friday Dec 9.

More details to come…

Stay in touch

Contact us any time by Facebook or email. We love having new people to practice with us in the morning 🙂
