Led Full Vinyasa Primary Series Featuring Druminyasa

Led Full Vinyasa Primary Series Featuring Druminyasa

Ashtanga Primary Series is most commonly practiced in the "Half Vinyasa" form, meaning that between seated poses, students flow through to Downward Dog and then back to seated.  In "Full Vinyasa Form", students flow through all the way to standing (Samastitih) between poses and then back to seated again for the next pose.  The result is energetically quite different, stimulating and relaxing at the same time.  It is recommended that students have experience practicing Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga consistently before attending this class.

For this special event, allow the live drum stylings of Brad Ellsworth to carry you through this challenging practice. Feel the rhythms of the drums as you connect breath, heartbeat, mind & body to your practice. As featured by The Washington Times, CBS, and Washington’s WTOP news, Brad Ellsworth of Druminyasa® has been playing drums and percussion for over 25 years. Based in Richmond, Brad Ellsworth is a yoga practitioner and teacher and founded Druminyasa by connecting his love for rhythm, drums and movement.

Cost:  $20
