Alignment and Movement
A special 10 week series of classes taught by Joseph Satlak – Tuesday evenings 7:30 – 9:00 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 10 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 2016
The feeling of carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders can create and build tension throughout the upper back and neck. Our modern lifestyle of being in a car, airplane, on the phone and spending long hours using a computer all contribute to the load on our neck and shoulders resulting in chronic pain and discomfort.
Come join us at a special workshop that will introduce tools and techniques for overcoming generalized neck and shoulder discomfort and build upon the techniques introduced in previous neck and shoulder workshops. Students will learn yoga practices that will help to release and align the neck and shoulders, manage stress, and promote good posture and relaxation. This workshop will build upon techniques presented in previous workshops and introduce new material
Class size will be limited to 12. This class is appropriate for beginners and experienced students. Cost $40. Preregistration required.
Karunta is a puppet. In Yoga Karunta one learns to manipulate oneself in the various yoga postures by means of belts, suspended ropes and slings. Working with wall ropes and slings 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 continuing introduction to working with ropes. We will expand upon 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, and variations of rope sirsasana (headstand) and supported sarvangasana (shoulder balance) as appropriate, explore basic back bends and introduce specialized relaxation techniques.
This workshop is for experienced practitioners, aspiring teachers and teachers. Class size will be limited to 12. Please tell us in advance if you have any injuries, so that we may determine if this workshop is appropriate for you. Cost $40 – Preregistration and permission of the instructor is required.
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.
