Going Deep: The Art of Adjusting Asana in the Ashtanga Practice

  • Moksha Yoga Center

Asana means comfortable seat, but why is it so damn uncomfortable? The Mysore practice is a sequence of Asanas, each one unlocking the next. In order to relax into the asana sometimes we need to go beyond what we believe our bodies are capable of. This allows us to find a deeper meaning and that sweet spot where you can have a cup of tea while remaining twisted like a pretzel. 
In this workshop we will address adjustments in the primary series that take our practice deeper, unlocking our potential. Applicable to students of all levels, this workshop will be part self-adjustment; to understand where we can take the practice on our own, and part interactive; where students can work together taking the practice deeper.

Ashtanga Talk

  • Moksha Yoga Center

Pathabhi Jois used to say 99% practice, 1% theory when he described Ashtanga yoga. Most of us have taken this literally, referring to the physical aspects of the practice.

There is more to the method than practicing asanas or postures on our mats and even though it starts from asanas, there are other things that we can practice on and off our mats.

 

This is FREE and open to the public. There will be time for questions and answers during the talks.

The Heart in Yoga

  • Moksha Yoga Center

’The Heart in Yoga’ looks at the Ashtanga yoga sequence with a scientific approach. Students will gain a basic understanding of the anatomy & physiology of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and understand how applying the Tristana Method (Drishti, Breath, Bandhas) to the different asanas in the primary series can work to strengthen these systems. No previous knowledge of Ashtanga Yoga is needed to grasp the applications of the sequence and how they relate to these systems, but students should be prepared for a light asana practice.
