Understanding the Standing Series
Join ashtanga teacher, Joanna Darlington, for this afternoon of investigation into the
power of the standing series. This workshop will focus on the development of
muscular awareness and energetic alignment for such essential asanas as
trikonasana (triangle pose) and virabhadrasana (warrior pose). From the position of
your feet, to the orientation of your pelvis you will learn to properly lengthen the
legs, creating a stability and strength that will continue to inform your movements.
The understanding of these positions is key in developing flexibility for the entirety
of your practice and will give you information to explore throughout.
$20 before October 15th, $25 after October 15th or at the door.
Joanna started with yoga in 2004. Though she has studied various styles, including
Iyengar and restorative, she has maintained a primary focus in Ashtanga yoga and
the lineage of David Garrigues. Through her teaching she supports this lineage and
the lineage of her teachers teacher, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. She has continued to learn
and benefit from the depths of her practice and study as it has been presented to her
through the guidance of her teacher and dedication to daily practice.
As senior apprentice to David, she often travels with and assists him when sharing
his knowledge both in the US and India. Her love of ashtanga yoga, and her passion
for teaching it, continues to blossom through her study and all that has come from it.
Joanna is currently serving as a guest teacher in various yoga studios across the
globe and enjoys the beauty of experiencing and being a part of a larger reaching
community of yogis along the way. You can see her schedule on her website,
