There are some things you can learn by coming to a weekly class and there are other deepenings that happen when you spend a full weekend immersed in the practices. Join Yoga on High’s experienced teachers for a weekend immersion of Ashtanga Yoga.
The weekend will begin with an exploration of the bandhas, physically and anatomically, and how they relate to breathing. Then you will apply those concepts to the intricate movements into and out of the poses throughout a Modified Primary Series practice.
On Saturday afternoon we will look at safely modifying and working towards poses that include lotus, followed by the actions, alignment and anatomy of backbends.
On Sunday morning we will start with “dessert first,” including actions, alignment and anatomy of the inversions Sarvangasana (shoulderstand) and Sirsasana (headstand). Then we’ll move, breath by breath, through the entire Primary Series.
In the afternoon we’ll host “Asana Doctor” where any questions will be answered through your bodies; we’ll take the question and then explore answers experientially. You’ll get a chance to have a greater understand of approaching some of the more challenging poses, which vary from person. Find your entry ways into poses you might be tempted to ignore or avoid.
A $75.00 cancellation fee is included in the workshop cost. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the start date of workshops.
