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 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
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.

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.
Fall Workshops – Cambridge
Yoga Karunta – Working with Ropes and Sings – Saturday, October 21 – 2-4 PM
Karunta is a puppet. In Yoga Karunta one learns to manipulate oneself in the various yoga postures by means of suspended ropes. Working with wall ropes is one of the surest ways to enjoy effortless inversion, release the back, increase range of motion and develop strength and a sense of direction in difficult asanas. Working safely and knowledgeably, however, requires training and practice. This workshop will provide participants with a basic introduction to working with ropes. In this first in a series of Yoga karunta workshops we will develop the fundamental concepts of release, range of motion and strength, beginning with adho mukha svanasana (downward facing dog pose ) and its variations, rope standing poses, basic backbends, and variations of rope sirsasana (headstand) as appropriate.
Karunta or “puppet,” suggests that as we take up this practice we are like puppets on a string, except, as Geeta Iyengar writes, “Here the puppeteer and the puppet are one, performing their own puppet show.”
