Yogic Breathing + Meditation
Followed by 30 minute Q+A session
Friday October 25th 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Firmly established in mind, body, and emotion, Yoga offers us the power to find peaceful inner self in the middle of any action and hardship. Yogic breathing is one of the most powerful tools to reconnect on a deep inner level. In this workshop, you will breathe to soothe and calm your mind as well as breathe to energize yourself. We will end this session with open discussion and Q&A.
Asana Foundations - The Standing Series
Saturday October 26th 1:00pm - 3:00pm
By developing a conscious use of our legs during our standing poses, we learn advantageous alignment principles that enhances energy, facilitates health, and prevents injury. When we utilize the ground below correctly, these key asanas connect us to the core of our pelvis, spine, and bandhas. In this workshop, you will learn how this humble series of postures builds deep inner awareness and structural foundation for forward bends, back-bends, inversions, and deep hip opening work. Gain a newfound appreciation for this foundational work of yoga asana.
Jumping, Walking, Rolling, and Floating - Transitions in practice
Saturday October 26th 3:30pm - 5:30pm
In the Ashtanga Vinyasa practice, we spend as much time transitioning between postures as we do holding them individually. In this workshop, we will explore the many types of transitions we experience in practice. Starting with floating in Surya Namaskara, then to the illusive (and challenging) seated jump throughs and jump backs, and finally into the more complex entrances to arm balances and inversions. We will understand how and where to use strength and stability while creating lightness and ease in the body and mind. Come with a sense of adventure!
Intro to Nadi Shodana - Demystifying the Intermediate Series
Sunday October 27th 1:00pm - 3:30pm
In this workshop, Tim takes you through a detailed, intense, and fun exploration of how the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga unlocks the spine, hips, and upper body while creating strength and developing a deep sense of calmness-in-action. Taking root in healthy anatomical patterns, you will identify energetic pathways that lead to pain-free deep backbends, safe hip opening, and a step-by-step method to master the arm balances. Also known as “The Second Series”, this group of postures challenges both flexibility and strength while teaching mastery of the nervous system.
