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!

Some yoga experience recommended.
