YOGA FOR MEDITATION

FRIDAY, JUNE 24
7:00-9:00PM

All asana practices can be used to prepare us and take us into a meditative state (Dhyana). When we just breathe and move, Ashtanga can become a moving meditation. We will start this class with a guided Ashtanga practice, turning into and awakening our energetic body. We will then take this lite energetic awareness into a 30-minute guided chakra meditation. If your week at work or home has been stressful and making your mind rampant, this session will scrub it clean setting the tone for a relaxing weekend.

All levels welcome.



OPENING YOUR HEART – ELEMENTS OF BACKBENDING

SATURDAY, JUNE 25
10:30AM-1:30PM

Some of us have a spine like cooked linguini and don’t need to think about backbending. Some of us begin to hyperventilate when we attempt basic backbends. In this workshop we will break down individual elements that allow us to backbend with control and comfort. Working with partners we will explore shoulders, hip flexors our front, our foundation and our breath. All levels, all styles of practitioners. Based on Michael’s latest DVD.


AWAKEN YOUR LIFE FORCE AND QUIET YOUR MIND

SATURDAY , JUNE 25
3:00PM - 5:00PM

A Yogic breathing and pranayama workshop

This workshop will support the idea that the Breath is the most powerful aspect of Ashtanga yoga. We will enhance our breath awareness to deepen our asana practice and develop a basic seated pranayama practice.

By incorporating this practice — slowly, slowly you will be able to utilize the control of breath and bandhas to harness energy (prana) and flow with synchronicity from asana to asana, taking your practice experience to another level. Based on Michael CD used by practitioners around the world since 2005.

COST: $55 ($65 AFTER MAY 24)



KILLER ARM BALANCES

SUNDAY, JUNE 26
10:30AM-1:30PM

Circus Tricks! The fun stuff that we used to do with our bodies as indestructible tykes. We used to be so much more comfortable being upside down when we were kids, and so much closer to the ground. Use your yoga practice in a way that can help you defy the laws of gravity again… as a big kid. Moving through a guided practice, firmly grounded in the breath and the bandhas, we will stop and explore the parts of the practice allowing us to move into arm balances. Working with partners, balancing yourself on your hands in challenging positions is guaranteed to make you laugh. All levels, all styles of practitioners.
