Workshop Descriptions:
Essential Ashtanga: 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.

Yoga beyond Asana: This workshop will explore concepts from the Upanishads that shape the eastern worldview. This paradigm is the contextual framework out of which yoga is born. As a modern yoga practitioner, you will be able to fit contemporary yoga practice into an ancient wisdom tradition. We will explore yogic theories and concepts such as conditioned living, the causes of suffering, the means of liberation, and the purpose of life. Come with an open mind, and you will leave inspired.

An historical overview of Indian thought from the Vedas to Modern Yoga: Indian thought has developed over the course of thousands of years. It is in the midst of a modern renaissance and cultural exchange in the west. This workshop will help you to see how yoga has developed and changed throughout its long history to create the diversity of techniques we see represented today in both the east and the west. You will see the different developments that led to variety in yogic styles and literature, as well as the common points that indicate authenticity in the midst of this diversity.

Core, jumping back and jumping through: We will explore how to utilize the full strength of the torso and bandhas 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.
