8-Week Series on the Basics of Ashtanga Yoga
8-WEEK SERIES CLASSES ARE ABOUT 1 HOUR.
WE RECOMMEND PRE-REGISTERING FOR THESE CLASSES
The next series begins: Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at 7:30pm and Sunday, May 12, 2013 at noon. The 8-week basic series is the most effective way we know of to introduce people to Ashtanga yoga and vinyasa flow.
This series is meant to make new students feel comfortable, so if you don’t have any yoga experience you will be FINE! The teacher will describe poses each week in depth, with modifications and demonstrations. If you have always wanted to start yoga, this is a great way to do it. It works best when students commit to 2 classes per week-that way they get stronger, open faster and have the opportunity to see, hear, and practice what they are learning more than once a week. We limit this class to 25 students so we strongly recommend that you sign up online for your first class!
The poses of Ashtanga yoga are meant to be memorized and practiced consistently to achieve a healthier, stronger, disease-free body and mind. This 8-week series is a manageable way in which to learn, practice, and eventually memorize most of the first half of the primary series of Ashtanga yoga. Over the 8-week course, the practitioner will build strength and flexibility, as well as develop an understanding of what yoga is beyond the physical practice. Additionally, this is a GREAT way build a foundation for vinyasa flow yoga, as many of the postures covered in this series are also in vinyasa flow classes.
This is a rolling series that starts over every 8 weeks.
WE RECOMMEND THAT STUDENTS PRE-REGISTER, AS SPACE IS LIMITED- PLEASE INDICATE INTEREST BY SENDING IN THE FILLED OUT FORM, EMAIL IT FROM THIS WEBSITE, OR REGISTER AND PAY FROM OUR SCHEDULE PAGE BEFORE YOUR FIRST CLASS.
Unlike the Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow classes in which the focus is to keep moving with the breath, these classes often pause so that the teacher can break down postures and explain them in more depth.
Students may drop in each week, as long as they are aware of what was covered the previous week. We will not backtrack in this series. If you can not join the series at the beginning, call or email the studio to see if you can drop in, join the next series or schedule a private to catch up.
Cost for all 8 weeks : $105 to attend 1 class per week$ and 158 to attend two classes per week and $199 to attend three classes a week. SERIES CLASS CARDS CAN ONLY BE USED AT SERIES CLASSES
Classes are approximately one hour long.
