Beginning Ashtanga Workshops
Ten Tuesday mornings: April 11 through June 13, 2017

The Beginning Ashtanga Spring Series is for continuing students of all levels. The class will allow time for deepening the foundation of the Primary Series of Ashtanga. Students will be encouraged to practice outside of class in order to deepen the work they do in class with Melanie. This will also help students create a stronger connection to the practice. This series will give students the chance to better understand and experience the pacing of Ashtanga Yoga, a vigourous flow style of yoga linking breath with movement. Each class will include a seated meditation, yoga philosophy, and hands on attention. We will build on previous experience to create a cohesive and holistic experience for each student.

Advanced Ashtanga Workshops
Eight Friday mornings in April 14 through June 6, 2017 (no class on April 21)

In the Advanced Ashtanga Series, intermediate students will study together to learn the second half of the Primary Series of Ashtanga. The class will focus most of its energy on helping students become familiar and comfortable with the more advanced postures in the second half of the Primary Series. Students will also be encouraged to practice outside of class in order to deepen the work they do in class. Students will become more familiar with the pace of the class, as well as the finishing postures. Ashtanga Yoga is a vigourous flow style of yoga, linking breath with movement. Each class will include a seated meditation, yoga philosophy, and hands on attention. We will build on previous experience to create a cohesive and holistic experience for each student.
