NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Upcoming Moon Day Workshops

Traditionally there is no Mysore class on Moon Days (New Moon and Full Moon), the Mysore classes on these days will be replaced with a Workshop.

 

Second Series is the counterbalance of Primary Series. In Primary Series we develop the strength our mind, back, shoulders and legs need for safe back-bends, which is the main topic of Second Series or Nadi Shodhana (purification of the nervous system). Many of us find back-bends challenging both physically and mentally.
Either if you are starting a back-bend practice or you want to deepen your knowledge on it, in this 2 hours workshop we will explore in detail preparations, modifications, alignment and safe techniques for some of the back-bends of Second Series. The aim is to find the balance between the effort and surrender necessary to advance in your back-bending.
With Primary Series we restore health, build strength, and bring back the natural range of motion to the joints; the second series purifies at a more subtle level, opening the nadis and chakras (energy body), increasing the flow of prana and bringing lightness in body and mind. The third series is designed to stabilize the energy that has been awakened by the second series, cultivating sthira bhaga “excellent stability”. It does this by providing a sequence of asanas that require strength, flexibility, and balance, all at the same time.
In this 2 hours workshops open to everyone (it is not necessary that you are practicing third series) we will examine some of the arm balances of the third series in detail, exploring the biomechanics for safe shoulder alignment and the use of core strength, all techniques that will be applicable into any other arm balance posture.

  • A NEW Yoga Nidra class added on Sunday from 11am to 12m (after the Mysore class), it is great yin complement to the yan of your Ashtanga Vinyasa practice.
