Introduction to Mysore
Saturday Nov 3 | 12:30-2 | Karma South End
Traditionally, the practice of Ashtanga Yoga is learned from one teacher, in increments, over the course of time. As one posture is mastered, the next is offered. “Mysore style” refers to the way the practice was taught in the Indian city of its origins, Mysore. In this style, students move and breath at their own pace, and the teacher has the ability to observe and adjust students individually. This workshop is meant to teach you the sun salutations and finishing postures, as well as introduce the philosophy behind this method of yoga practice. My hope is to provide an opportunity for you to explore the tradition, and to help you feel comfortable in your own practice so you may begin attending daily morning classes and learning the sequence. Class is appropriate for absolute beginners, as well as students of other styles. All ages are welcome.
Cost: $75, includes Mysore practice free for the month of November! Payment can be made at class, cash or check only.
Afternoon Ashtanga Immersion and Adjustment Clinic
Sunday Nov 4 | 12:30-3:30 | Karma South End
Cost: $40 payable at the door, cash or check only
We will take this afternoon to learn about the movements of Prana and the importance of how we use the Jnanendriyas (sense organs) and Karmendriyas (organs of action) during practice. We will be practicing preparatory pranayams, and adjusting each other’s postures as vehicles for gaining more sensitivity to the subtle aspects of yoga practice. This workshop will be accessible to all styles and levels of student.
