Join us at The Shala for this informative workshop series on Ashtanga Yoga and the traditional Mysore method of teaching. Ashtanga Yoga is a complex, challenging, energizing yet meditative form of vinyasa yoga taught by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and currently taught by his grandson, R Sharath Jois. Pattabhi Jois taught his students individually, providing hands on instruction and assistance as needed, but in a group setting.
This workshop series, which will span a 4 week period, is designed for the beginner and the seasoned yogi alike. If you are new to Ashtanga Yoga, you will find this workshop will help you gain a deeper understanding of the Ashtanga practice and will most certainly prepare you to practice the way Ashtanga Yoga was meant to be taught and learned: Mysore Style!
Workshop education will include:
-A comfortable, accepting class environment in which to learn about a method of yoga that may not be so familiar to you!
-One dedicated session a week with 2 hours of workshop instruction, across the span of 4 weeks
-4 weeks of unlimited classes at The Shala during the workshop timeframe
-A review of the history and practice of Ashtanga Yoga
-A discussion on the eight limbs of yoga
-An introduction to the yoga sutras
-A review, break down, and practice (both led and Mysore style!) of the standing sequence and the last few closing sequence postures of the Ashtanga Yoga method
-Hands on assistance with and modifications of the postures of the standing sequence as needed
Investment: $100 (Includes the four 2 hour long workshop series classes and unlimited classes at The Shala Oct 3, 2017 through 31, 2017)
