It wasn’t until she stumbled upon Ashtanga Yoga when she fully immersed herself into a devoted practice a few years later in 1998’.

Workshop Two: The Art of Ashtanga Yoga
Through consistent practice our time on the mat can develop into a work of art, creating stillness in motion. Reaching a flow state in the practice comes from uniting all internal elements to then rest in awareness within our physical being. In this workshop, we will explore how to create depth in the practice creating art in motion, while developing conscious attention and strength throughout the body, mind, and soul. We will first start by cutting away excess energy draining movements as well as connecting to the downward and upward flow of energy to then sit in a space of simplicity and concentration. This will be an inspiring workshop giving space to explore and express the beauty of yoga in every movement and every breath.
Workshop Three: Awakening the Core: Bandhas, Breath and More
In this workshop become more intimately rooted in the internal network of the bandhas while tuning to the central axis of the body. Properly understanding how to engage the bandhas not only bring lightness to the body but also stability and clarity to the mind. Learn to become more closely connected to this often elusive and mysterious part of the practice of Ashtanga yoga, appropriate for all levels.
Description Sunday sessions September 29:
Workshop Four: The Gateway Postures of Primary and Intermediate Series
All postures in the sequences of Ashtanga yoga are important. However, in this workshop, we will take a closer look at the core the postures in both Primary and Intermediate series that are integral to opening and strengthening the body-mind to set the stage and foundation to more intelligently grow and evolve in the practice.
Workshop Five: Backbending with Ease
The paradox of backbending is that we must be firm and soft at the same time, uniting the energy of strength and surrender. Learn the basic components of backbending with integrity to the natural flow of the body. In addition, learn to understand the concept of active release. When actively releasing, we experience the use of grounding mechanisms to establish the downward flow of energy while fully utilizing the breath to then be able to expand and deepen. In this workshop learn the foundational techniques that allow the body to find its depth and strength while at the same time letting go. For all levels.
“I do feel it is important to be sensitive to the seasonal shifts and adjust the rhythm of one’s practice during these times of external extremes, instead of trying to force the same pacing month after month” – Laruga Glaser
