About Yoga Workshop
Through all classes at the Yoga Workshop we teach a dynamic, focused, and deeply organic approach to the 8 limbs of classical yoga. Our method of practice, teaching and philosophy are grounded through the Ashtanga Vinyasa lineage of non-dualistic experience (advaita vedanta). This approach is recognizable in Hindu and Buddhist contemplative traditions, and through the direct experience that the practice itself uncovers.
We offer daily classes for students of all levels. In traditional Mysore style classes students practice individually, working on whichever series or therapeutic loop they are currently practicing with personalized assistance from the teachers. Our guided classes are designed to teach the fundamentals of the internal forms of Ashtanga yoga; the sequencing of postures, alignment, breathing, bandhas, mudra and dristi.
Our threads of teaching
As a learning center we offer three threads of teaching; Community Classes, Master Classes, and Yoga in the World Classes. These threads of teaching are interconnected strands within the practice which when braided together bring balance, depth and continued insight into the nature of reality.
Richard Freeman, the Yoga Workshop's founder, is a Certified Ashtanga Yoga teacher. Other members of our teaching staff have studied with K. Pattabhi Jois both in Mysore, India and in the United States.
