Ashtanga Yoga School Raleigh is honored to host David Keil for 5 days of Mysore and 2 Workshops to help you kick off your New Year!

David Keil was introduced to yoga by his Tai Chi Chuan teacher in 1989. He began an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice in 1999 and in 2001, met yoga teacher John Scott—his teacher and mentor in the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition. Following John’s advice, David made his first trip to study with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India in 2002. He was authorized to teach by Jois in 2004 and is currently authorized-level 2. David has been teaching anatomy for yoga instructors and students since 2000 and continues to travel worldwide teaching anatomy and yoga workshops.

Afternoon Workshops:

Saturday January 18 — The Matrix of Ashtanga Yoga 12-2:30pm; $55

This is not a workshop that simply reviews the basics that everyone is familiar with. It is about seeing the practice from a new perspective.

In this workshop, we first discuss the context within which the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method came to be. Then we look at the essential elements that make it distinct and an extremely internal practice. The context that the practice lives in is one of recognizing our true nature. Are the elements in the practice being used to this aim? Click HERE for more details

Sunday January 19 — Three Anatomical Points to an Effortless Practice 12-2:30pm; $55

After teaching anatomy and yoga for nearly twenty years, the core of movement in practice can be brought back to three anatomical points that direct you toward the core of the body. This workshop is about simplifying the complexity of where to practice from anatomically.

By focusing on these three anatomical points, you will develop safe and effective movement that becomes expansive and effortless. It sounds too good to be true, but this really is the basis of understanding the physical component of bandhas in your yoga practice. Click HERE for more details
