Essentials

2016 Course Dates: Feb 15 - 19

So often, we seem to find gaps in our practice and understanding of yoga. We get confused not just about the bothersome gaps between the great variety of techniques and philosophies, but also about the apparent gaps between alignment and flow, asana and pranayama, theory and practice.

This 5-day intensive will help to fill in some of these gaps. In the morning sessions we will ground our study with an in depth exploration of the internal patterns of breath and alignment found in the Primary Series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. In the afternoons there will be an introduction to Sanskrit chanting, an introduction to the internal pleasures of pranayama and a comprehensive overview of the foundational philosophies that form the context for yoga practice. We will read and discuss the Kena and the Katha Upanishads, selections from the Yoga Sutras and then learn to appreciate the plurality of approaches to yoga through an introduction to the Bhagavad Gita.
