Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow
Ever wonder where Vinyasa Flow originated from? This class is a traditional approach to the Vinyasa yoga style, which dates back to as early as 1930. Like a Vinyasa class, each movement is synchronized with breath. Expect this class to include traditional asana (poses) and sequences: sun salutations, standing poses, seated poses, backbends and an opportunity to learn/practice inversions. Great class for anyone who is interested in learning more about Ashtanga Vinyasa. Open to all experience levels (even beginners!) and individual modifications will be available. Time for Q&A following class for assistance with postures and other inquires will be available as well.
Ashtanga Mysore (see Mysore page for more info)
The Mysore room is open for ~two hours. In class, each student learns a set sequence of postures over time that is appropriate and customized for them and as they commit the sequence to memory and mastery (a steady breath and ease of movement) each student in time will receive more postures. The practice grows in length and challenge gradually until the series is complete and they begin the next series. Ashtanga Vinyasa is an approach to practice which incorporates a precise melding of breath, gaze and posture. Each posture is linked by an efficient transition which keeps the whole practice fluid, even and steady. As the practice is refined over time breath and movement are unified in a moving meditation. Each practice (from beginner to advanced) includes standing postures, back bends (modified to complex) and a closing sequence consisting of inversions (modified to complex), pranayama and seated meditation; all followed by rest. We encourage you to come as you are… no need to prepare or memorize anything beforehand.
In this class, expect an opening meditation and brief introduction to the class focus, a mindful and powerful flow, followed by a closing meditation. Students will then gather for “Satsang,” which will include a “dharma talk” (group discussion). The focus of each class will change, with topics ranging from using yoga to cope with stress, anxiety, or fear to understanding non-attachment or finding the balance between effort and ease. Yogis are encouraged to stay for the “Satsang,” but it is not required. Come ready for movement and stillness, with an open mind and heart. All are welcome!
