Week 40: I will be in a meditation retreat this week, we will resume online classes on Monday, October 3rd (week 41) 👇

Hanumanasana: The monkey posture

Week 41
October 3 – 9

Hanuman, the Monkey God was famous for his impressive and powerful leaps, in one of his most famous stories from Ramayana “the power of his back leg propelled him skyward from India, while his front leg reached to touch Sri Lanka’s shore”.

Hanumanasana is a beautiful but challenging posture that requires the work of the hips and legs, while balancing the upper body straight up on the pelvis. With the legs stretching in opposite directions, the hip flexors and hamstrings need to be strong and flexible in order to achieve the necessary stability.

This week we will dedicate the classes towards the attainment of this posture; drills, modifications and different variations will be practiced. I am looking forward to see you all!

 

Citta prasādanam

Week 42
October 10 – 16

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali was the very first codification of yoga and sets out the yogic path. It is divided in four parts or “pada”. Each sutra is a short thread or aphorism, there are 196 yoga sutras. Sometimes these sutras can be taken as a group for study, or sometimes just a single sutra can give opportunity for endless reflection and meditation. In the first pada, sutra 33 is one such sutra that can be reflected on, by itself, quite endlessly.

“Infusing the mind with friendliness, compassion, cheerfulness, and uninvolved observation in relation to those living a happy, miserable, virtuous, and non-virtuous life respectively, results in reclaiming a pleasant and serene state of mind.” 

This week our classes will be inspired by this sutra, in which Patanjali invites us to cultivate the four great attitudes of the mind as the pathway to peace and happiness.

Pincha Mayurasana: The feathered peacock pose

Week 43
October 17 – 23

Pincha Mayurasana is a pose included in the middle of the Second Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Even though there are many postures in the primary and second series that challenge the flexibility and strength of the upper part of the torso, it is in this pose that the focus shift almost exclusively to the shoulders and upper back. Many times this asana takes years to master, it will definitely test your patience, but with persistent practice and stubborn determination we all can make progress in it. Pincha Mayurasana is an advanced pose, but when mastered opens up the possibility of many other postures, like karandavasana or vrischikasana. 

Join me this week where we will focus in opening the shoulders and upper back, and strengthening the core with Pincha Mayurasana as motif.

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.
