Ashtanga Vinyasa is an endless exploration of the wonder of embodied experience. The practice works with opposing forces of breath and invites these forces to align. When the breath aligns, the experience of the body opens up, to reveal endless patterns of sensation. The practice is to be present with sensation, allowing it to unfold in the open expanse of awareness, only to fade back into the emptiness from which it arose. Through this potent practice, we give ourselves space, and we allow our minds to breathe. Our thoughts and emotions gradually resolve into a blissful flow of consciousness.
In this workshop, we explore some techniques from the Hatha tradition that bring this practice alive—tracing internal currents of breath, balancing subtle patterns of sensation, and moving the body from the inside, while opening ourselves for deep psychical release. This workshop will interlace somatic explorations, subtle body alignment, pranayama, mythology and philosophy. You will sweat, soften, release, and fall in love all over again with the beauty and brilliance of this unique contemplative form.

18 SURYA NAMASKAR18 - 20Surya Namaskar means “Salutations to the Sun.” In the context of yoga, the “Sun” is not only the celestial body that gives us warmth and daylight, but the solar center of the subtle body, where our vital forces converge. In Surya Namaskar, we are propitiating to these forces, inviting them to rise up from the altar of the pelvis and burn away our delusions, giving us insight. In this session, we explore the internal dynamics of Surya Namaskar, rediscovering an archetypal ritual of astonishing depth and potency.

9 MYSORE9 - 11This is a traditional Mysore-style self-directed Ashtanga class. Students lead themselves through the Ashtanga Vinyasa sequencing while receiving individual guidance and support. Intended for people with an established Mysore practice. If you do not have an established Mysore practice, please be familiar with the standing sequence, or ask permission to attend.
12 BACKBENDING12 - 14The practice of backbending is about making ourselves vulnerable, while finding the internal support to handle that vulnerability with elegance and grace. When we connect to the sources of our internal support, backbending becomes exhilarating and sensual, with tremendous opportunity for deep psychical release. In this session, we learn to work intelligently with the diaphragm, the psoas, the pelvic girdle and the obliques to create a long and supple spine that can reach gracefully into these difficult forms. This session is open to practitioners of all levels, but will involve a full practice, using postures and adaptations from the first and second series.
15 LIFTING, TWISTING AND FOLDING15 - 17The natural counterpoint to backbending is what we might call “the coiling pattern.” This pattern emerges all over the Ashtanga practice, and provides an essential ground of psychophysical support, by awakening the dissolving forces of the descending breath that remove excess from the body and mind. In this session, we explore the coiling pattern as an integral component of lifting, twisting, folding, and potentially putting the legs behind the head. This session is open to practitioners of all levels, but will involve a full and deep practice, using postures and adaptations from the first and second series.

9 MYSORE9 - 11This is a traditional Mysore-style self-directed Ashtanga class. Students lead themselves through the Ashtanga Vinysa sequencing while receiving individual guidance and support. Intended for people with an established Mysore practice. If you do not have an established Mysore practice, please be familiar with the standing sequence, or ask permission to attend.
12 MULA BANDHA12 - 14Some say that mula bandha is the toning of the pelvic floor. Others say that mula bandha is the experience of non-duality. What do these apparently disparate things have in common? This workshop aims to clarify. Observing the subtle breath within our bodies, we discover a thread of sensation that reaches from the pelvic floor to the soft palette, a thread that connects us to the primitive source of our vitality. By awakening our adoration for where that thread leads, we invite some of the finer experiences of mula bandha to arise. This session involve light asana, pranayama and subtle visualization practices. All practitioners are welcome.
14:30 PHILOSOPHY: THE FEMININE SUBLIME14:30 - 16In Tantric philosophy, the feminine is the natural principle of creation. She is abundant, excessive, unpredictable, and threatens to overwhelm us when she overflows. The secret of yoga practice is to make space within consciousness for the spontaneous movement of the feminine principle, and to adore its immediate unfolding, even as it overwhelms the ego. In this philosophy talk, we explore the nature of the feminine, and the possibility of relating to the feminine intimately, through a colorful retelling of the Myth of Sati, “she who is.”
