A special series of classes taught by Joseph Satlak – Wednesday evenings 7:30 – 9:00 PM
When the great yoga master Krishnamacharya wanted to learn practical yoga he had to travel thousands of miles to Tibet to find a knowledgeable teacher. Later his teachings, through the faith and devotion of two of his students BKS Iyengar (Iyengar Yoga) and Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga Yoga) helped to revive yoga and turn it into a modern day global phenomenon.
Join us in a special 13 week series of classes where we will explore some of the fundamental aspects of the these great teachers approaches to the practice and study of yoga: Alignment and precision in the practice of asana a hallmark of Iyengar Yoga; The linking of movement and breath an essential of Astanga Yoga’s vinyasa system; and the commitment to adapting the practice of yoga to meet the needs and abilities of each individual, an essential emphasis of Krishnamacharya’s teaching.
We will take a back to the basics approach to each class exploring a range of standing, supine, seated, twisting and as appropriate inverted postures. Mindful that the series will take place at the end of a work day, each sequence presented will include relaxation practiced at the beginning and ending of each class.
One year of yoga experienced is required. Register for this series here
Workshops Winter 2017
Extended Practice – Saturday, January 21, 1:30 to 4 PM
This special class offered once per term is designed for experienced students looking to deepen in their personal practices. We will explore intermediate postures including classical twists, backbends, forward bends and well as inversion variations. Participation would be limited to 12 or so students. Permission of instructor is required.
In this workshop we will work with material from Donald Moyer’s book, Yoga for Healthy Feet where Donald shares insights into working with the feet and ankles gained from over forty years of teaching yoga. The workshop will include:
- Basic anatomy and architecture of the feet, as understood from a yogic perspective;
- Principles for aligning and balancing the feet;
- Suggestions for addressing common problems, such as foot cramps, sprained ankles, hammer toes, bunions, and plantar fasciitis; and
- Use of props such as blocks, straps, and wedges to support the feet and alleviate discomfort;
We will practice a sequence for developing awareness, lengthening your toes, strengthening your arches, improving your balance, and supporting your ankle joints. Cost $40. $54 will include a copy of Yoga for Healthy Feet by Donald Moyer.
New students may pay for an individual class, space permitting, before making a commitment to enroll. New students may enroll at anytime during the semester. We will pro-rate the cost. For all other students, payment is required to hold your place in a class or workshop and is due at or before the first class. MISSED CLASSES may be made up at anytime by calling ahead to schedule. Refunds will not be given after the term commences.
During our fall, winter and spring terms we teach in a course based, pre-registration format. We do this so that the teaching can be built up progressively from class to class. Learn more about our philosophy of teaching Yoga.
