Free Guided Ashtanga Class at City of Raleigh Museum

Free Guided Ashtanga Class at City of Raleigh Museum

Join Stacy Ingham, Owner and Director of Ashtanga Yoga School Raleigh for a Guided Ashtanga Primary Series class.  This will be a challenging, dynamic practice appropriate for those with experience doing Vinyasa or Ashtanga yoga.

Saturday May 25th; 11:30am-12:30pm

The Primary Series is the first set of yoga postures in the Ashtanga Vinyasa System of Yoga, considered the most important and foundational. This practice helps practitioners deepen focus inward, learn to extend breath, and is meant to help detoxify and purify the body. 

Its not necessary to pre-register for this event...BUT...space is limited to 50 students, so plan to arrive early. The parking garage on Wilmington St is the closest to the museum (Moore Square Public Parking) and its free on weekends :-)

THIS CLASS WILL BE HELD ON THE MAIN FLOOR OF THE CITY OF RALEIGH MUSEUM, 220 FAYETTEVILLE STREET RALEIGH, NC

PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN MAT TO THIS EVENT

Workshop - Primary Series Transitions and Closing Postures

Workshop - Primary Series Transitions and Closing Postures

Join Stacy Ingham, Owner/Director of Ashtanga Yoga School Raleigh, for a closer look at the transitions between postures in the Primary Series, as well as the Closing Sequence postures.

Yes, folks, this is the Jump Back Workshop! But we’ll also cover special transitions like chakrasana, and the rolling transitions in the second half of the Primary Series. Well also take a close look at the postures in the Closing Sequence including shoulderstand and headstand

As with the previous workshop on the “Train Wreck” section, we’ll aim to cover each of these transitions and postures from the most basic, foundational versions, through to the full expression.

This workshop is appropriate (and recommended!) for students of any level, and teachers.

AYSR Book Club Meeting - One Simple Thing by Eddie Stern

AYSR Book Club Meeting - One Simple Thing by Eddie Stern

Join your AYSR Community to discuss the recently published book by Eddie Stern, One Simple Thing. This is a well organized, well written book that covers everything from “What is Yoga” to “Tips on Practice” and includes some simple contemplative practices to incorporate into any schedule.

Eddie began his research for this book with 2 questions: 1) Where do consciousness and biology meet? 2) Is happiness a physiological experience? He answers these questions with a close look at the ancient yogic practices, and relates them to modern scientific research around the nervous system.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in dipping their toes into the deeper intentions behind our Ashtanga breathing and Asana practice, as well as those looking for a connection between the “yoga world” and modern western knowledge of how our bodies work best. Eddie presents his research in plain language, simple terms and relates the concepts to real-world situations.

Purchase the book and read it now. Join us to discuss, ask questions and share your take on the book on June 23rd at 4pm at AYS Raleigh. Feel free to bring snacks/drinks. This is a free community event. Sign up on the Class Schedule to let me know your are participating :-)

Purchase the book from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or any number of sources.
