Ashtanga Foundations 1 – The Five Allies in Surya Namaskara
In this session we’ll look at the 5 root techniques that form the internal practice of Ashtanga Yoga by carefully studying their application to the nine positions of Surya Namaskara. The root techniques, or allies include pranayama (conscious breathing), vinyasa (positioning), bandha’s (locks), dristi (gazing), and dhyana (meditation).
The positions of Surya Namaskara provide the perfect foundational basis for exploring the important role that each of the allies plays in creating a mature, sustainable yoga practice.
Saturday 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Ashtanga Foundations II and III – Standing Sequence, Seated Postures and Dynamic Transitions of Primary Series
In this session we’ll explore how cultivating a combination of dynamism and stability in the standing postures provides you a perfect means of entrance into the internal practice of Ashtanga Yoga. Structuring each seated asana in the primary around understanding the allies (vinyasa, breathing, bandha’s etc) will help you better extract the strengthening, restorative, and heali§ng benefits of this important series. We’ll also study the dynamic transitions between the asanas, carefully looking at how to create a better a jump back and jump through. And emphasizing the transitions also teaches you to cultivate rhythm, breath, dynamism and vitality within the stillness of each asana.
Saturday 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Precision, Purification and Pranayama
This session will utilize breathing exercises, retention, and discussion to help you better centralize your awareness on breath during practice. We’ll study how to use breathing to build powerful strength in your asana’s and to effect nadi shodana, purification of the pranic channels. Prana Vidya, knowledge of prana, helps you to progress towards subtlety as you concentrate your mind and better direct the power of the internalized prana.
Sunday 9:30 am – 12:00 pm
Intro to Second Series and Pranayama
This session will help you better understand how to make progress in the first section of Nadi Shodana or Ashtanga Yoga’s Intermediate series. We will study the foundational back bends of second series. We’ll look into how to create a sound, well-grounded foundation in each asana.
