An Ashtanga Yoga Weekend
w/ Geoff MacKenzie, Authorized Level 2 Ashtanga Teacher
When: Friday – Sunday, April 13th, 14th, & 15th, 2018
Where: Harmony Yoga & Wellness Center, 360 Duncan St, Duncan BC
Friday Workshop, 7:00 – 9:00 pm, Ashtanga Yoga: Inside-Out
Dive into the subtle, invisible forms of vinyasa practice: breath pattern; outward gaze; inner vision. Layering these forms deeply into the posture practice, we can explore possibilities for greater ease, fluidity and strength in our movements, and longevity in practice.
Saturday Mysore Class, 7:00 – 9:00 am
Saturday Workshop, 1:30 – 4:30 pm, Technique Clinic
A student-led enquiry into any and all areas of the practice where we encounter difficulty; an open forum in which to share your struggles and let the solutions bubble up from the collective.
Sunday Mysore Class, 6:30 – 8:30 am
Sunday Workshop, 12:30 – 3:30 pm, Polarity in the Practice: Balancing Maculine/Feminine
Examine the roles of Masculine and Feminine energy in your practice. Where are we required to be purposeful and penetrating? When must we soften, yield and be more playful? How do we avoid over-emphasizing one or the other? Let’s find out!
Full Weekend: $175 + GST
Individual Workshops: $50 + GST
Individual Mysore Classes: $30 + GST
