The Ashtanga Yoga Practice : Third Saturday Workshop Saturday May 16th, 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. With Elizabeth Rogers.
This is our monthly Third-Saturday Ashtanga Yoga workshop and is open to all practitioners who have at a minimum a working knowledge of the first half of the Ashtanga Primary Series.
Pulling from the ashtanga pranayama practice and from the asanas of primary and second series each month we explore aspects of the practice including constructing a frame for creating fluid movement in body and mind, functional anatomy and physiology, and adjustments with regards to the specificity of each body.
In May we will continue exploring the subtleties of the drishti (gaze) practice. Drishti, or the practice of the gaze, is the third aspect of the tristhana, or the third focal point we cultivate in the Ashtanga practice. We will review what we covered regarding drishti in April and work toward a sustained and steady use of the gaze. We will also work in pairs adjusting the surya namaskara and foundational standing asanas Mysore-style.
Fee: $45. Workshop limited to 8 participants. Pre-Registration is required. Please contact Elizabeth to register: firstname.lastname@example.org or 404.273.4388.
