Special Series – The Intersection of Alignment and Movement
A special 12 week series of classes taught by Mickey Barr & Joseph Satlak – Tuesday evenings 7:30 – 9:00/9:15 PM – September 15 – December 12
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 12 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
