Every Full Moon and New Moon our regular class -either online or In-Studio- will be substitute with our Moon Day Class, where we will move through a slow-paced detoxifying and cleansing practice that targets to open and stretch every part of your body to help release stress and tension and reset to a feeling much more open and relaxed. This class is appropriate for beginners yoga students or for regular Ashtanga practitioners as a compliment of your Ashtanga practice.

Week 21
May 16 – 22

FULL MOON ON MONDAY, MAY 16TH

Learning to draw into the mid-line.

In this immersion, our goal is to develop a greater connection to our body while being upside down. We will work step by step through the foundations and techniques to access some of the most popular inversions included in the Primary and Second Series on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga: shoulderstand, headstand, forearm balance and handstand.

The yogic method

Week 22
May 23 – 29

The yogic method: abhyasa and vairagya

Patanjali defines yoga in his sutra 1.2: Yoga is stilling (nirodhah) the fluctuations (vrtti) of the mind (citta), now the question arises: how? He states the methodology in his sutra 1.12: nirodhah of the vrttis can be achieved by practice (abhyasa) and detachment (vairagya). Abhyasa means well placed effort, while vairagya deals with letting go of our attractions and repulsions so we can act from a place of freedom.

This week our classes will be inspired by this sutra, we will learn how to regulate our energies when facing challenges not only in our mat but as well in our daily life.

Core for natural posture

Week 23
May 30 – June 5

PLEASE NOTE: This week Monday class is changed from 7pm to 8:30am

MEMORIAL DAY & NEW MOON ON MONDAY, MAY 30TH

Natural posture for pain free living and better thinking.

Natural good posture is important not only to your physical health but as well to your mental health. Having natural posture is specially beneficial to those suffering from back pain, headaches, poor lung capacity, low energy level and/or lack of confidence. Regarding of the type of work one may do for a living, those whose bodies move naturally, with ease and enjoy a innate balance of strength and flexibility will at the end of the day feel less worn out than those who struggled to sit comfortably at a desk, stand for long periods of time or simply spend hours at the traffic to get back home. This week our classes will be focused in developing the necessary core strength that can support a natural posture.

“No asana practice is complete without sun worship. Without its focusing on mental energies, yoga practice amounts to little more than gymnastics and, as such, loses meaning and proves fruitless. Indeed the Surya Namaskara should never be mistaken for mere physical exercise – for something incidental, that is, that simply precedes the asanas of yoga”.
Pattabhi Jois

Surya Namaskar

Week 24
June 6 – 12

Inviting the qualities of the sun.

Performing sun salutations is specially important for the balancing of manipura chakra which is located at the navel center. Whether one wants to live physically well, mentally well, energetically well, emotionally well or spiritually well, and to enhance one’s capability of living balanced in this planet manipura chakra -together with the two lower chakras- are of utmost importance.

Each movement and every pose In Surya Namaskar, requires undivided attention and must be performed correctly to obtain all of its benefits. Join in me this week as we will explore sun salutations from many different angles, we will explore specially the alignment of the most challenging movements within sun salutations: chaturanga dandasana, upward facing dog and downward facing dog.

About Our Online Classes

From Our Students

“Aura is so special. She is incredibly caring and dedicated to her students on such a deep level. Not only has my physical practice changed since I walked into her studio at the end of 2018, but she has changed my life as well. Because of the virtual program, I now have Aura “with me” in my home and it has changed the energy of my world. She is so knowledgeable and thoughtful with her words and I try to hold them with me in many of my actions and decisions throughout my day. I feel blessed to have Aura in my life as she is such a special and beautiful human. There aren’t enough words to describe how much anyone would receive from her teachings — it is infinite. Thank you Aura, for all you do and share with the world!”

Katie R.

“By far- the most intuitive and knowledgeable instructor- Aura is an incredibly dedicated and professional ashtanga yoga instructor.  The schedule offers something for everyone- “in person” and “virtual” classes each week.  I recently did a private “in person” class and – honestly- it was the most refreshing yoga experience in a long time.   Aura is truly dedicated to her students and her level of commitment is both inspiring and uplifting.”

Amy M.

“The weekly online program is amazing!  It has truly helped me to grow in my practice. Mysore classes are enhanced by led classes that focus on different aspects of yoga practice.  The ability to access the recordings after the class makes the schedule even more accessible.  Thank you, Aura, for devising this amazing program!”

Barbara C.

Aura is the real deal- dedicated, genuine, authentic and she walks the walk.   She embodies what yoga is all about. If you’ve never done yoga or if you have practiced for years, she will take you from where you’re starting from and your practice will expand exponentially, not only physically but spiritually and philosophically.

Her knowledge, mastery and understanding of anatomy, will give you the full benefit of each posture enhancing and deepening your asana practice. She is always learning and you will always be learning as she imparts that knowledge to you.  

The program she has devised includes not only asana practice, but pranayama (breath work), meditation, chanting, workshops, and philosophy based on ancient scriptures.
