Places are limited!

This practical study is for those who have an established Ashtanga yoga practice and are motivated to go into greater depths inside the theory and methodology of this lineage based tradition within a supportive community.

The 7-day program, In-Depth Studies, will assist to expand your knowledge base in an environment that will give various layers and perspectives inside the practical tradition of Ashtanga, while in turn, establishing greater maturity and grounding into the essence of yoga. It will attract those who crave an inside out approach, while guiding participants in applying the beauty of yoga into their daily life.

The focus will be on the principles listed below and will be interwoven throughout the week within the practice, philosophical discussions and asana study.

Lineage, Practice and Self-Reflection

Lineage

Within lineage you will explore the roots of the practice giving time to reflect and stand in remembrance for the trailblazers and luminaries who set the stage for it being as wide spread as it is today. In particular, we will discuss the life and teachings of T. Krishnamacharya and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, R. Sharath Jois as well as BKS Iyengar. In a sense, when looking backward, it gives strength and support, metaphorically standing on the shoulders of their greatness and passion.

Practice

Within practice you will work within the nuts and bolts of applying yoga into your daily life which no doubt entails understanding the method inside and out. You will be studying the postures, the vinyasa system, the nature of tristhāna and how to apply all eight limbs into your awareness within the scope of the practice.

Self-Reflection

Within self-reflection you begin to absorb what is learned as well as what insights begin to surface as you intensify your attention to the greater meaning of yoga and how it integrates into your consciousness. Garnering greater clarity even in the mist of confusion is part of the process. Growth and transformation within is not always the easy part but is essential in maturing and solidifying oneself on this journey. This is where you will find your own voice and build greater confidence in your experience and authenticity by simply taking time to listen and learn by going within.
