DESCRIPTION OF THE CLASSES

Intro to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

Beginners class

Duration of the class: 1 hour, 15 minutes

These classes are carefully designed to introduce beginners to this traditional form of Yoga in a safe, supportive way. The student will learn the breathing technique use in the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method -Ujjayi breath- and will be introduce to the basics postures of the primary series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. This series will be break down in a way that is approachable for all levels, as well as providing modifications appropriate for each individual.

Mysore class

Suitable of all levels

Duration of the class: Don’t Worry!! This is NOT a 4 hour class! 

Most students practice for about 1½ hours which is the amount of time it usually takes to complete a full series. However students who are on a tight schedule, or those who are new to ashtanga yoga often practice a partial series which may only take 30 minutes or so.

The student can arrive at any time between 6am and 10am in the morning time, and between 4pm and 8pm in the evening time and leave whenever necessary, or whenever your own practice is complete.

This is the traditional way to learn the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method. In this class the postures are given to the student, one by one, by the teacher in a certain sequential order within a group setting, so the student can learn the sequence at their own pace, with direct and individual assistance from the teacher, which allow the student to progress in the practice at an appropriate  rate for their own ability, both physically and mentally. This class is for students of all levels and is an excellent opportunity to develop a personal, independent practice.

Led half primary series of ashtanga vinyasa yoga

Ashtanga and Moon Days

“Like all things of a watery nature (human beings are about 70% water), we are affected by the phases of the moon. The phases of the moon are determined by the moon’s relative position to the sun. Full moons occur when they are in opposition and new moons when they are in conjunction. Both sun and moon exert a gravitational pull on the earth. Their relative positions create different energetic experiences that can be compared to the breath cycle.

The full moon energy corresponds to the end of inhalation when the force of prana is greatest. This is an expansive, upward moving force that makes us feel energetic and emotional, but not well grounded. The Upanishads state that the main prana lives in the head. During the full moon we tend to be more headstrong. The new moon energy corresponds to the end of exhalation when the force of apana is greatest. Apana is a contracting, downward moving force that makes us feel calm and grounded, but dense and disinclined towards physical exertion.

The Farmers Almanac recommends planting seeds at the new moon when the rooting force is strongest and transplanting at the full moon when the flowering force is strongest. Practicing Ashtanga Yoga over time makes us more attuned to natural cycles. Observing moon days is one way to recognize and honor the rhythms of nature so we can live in greater harmony with it.”
