These workshops are suitable for any level of student, and recommended for those starting out in the Ashtanga practice.

Foundational Elements of Practice: Saturday, July 29th; 10am-12pm

Ashtanga Yoga is a system for physical, mental and spiritual health. To benefit fully from your practice, its important to balance all three of these aspects in your study of this system of yoga.  We'll take a closer look at the foundational aspects of the Ashtanga practice (Breath, Bandha, Dristhi, Posture) from a physical, and energetic point of view, referencing Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika as a basis for our study.

Cost -- $20

Introduction to Intermediate Series: Saturday August 26th; 10am-12pm

The Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga is known as "Nadi Shodana" or "Nerve Cleansing". We'll take a look at the series as a whole, and the first several poses specifically.  This workshop is most appropriate for those with a well established Primary Series Practice.  Contact Stacy Ingham with any questions: inghamsk@gmail.com 919-880-9409
