The Science of the Ashtanga “vinyasa system”
1 March, 10am-12:30pm. R450. Ekam Yoga, 62 Tenth St. Parkhurst
In Ashtanga Yoga we can go through the motions or we can REALLY do the practice. With awareness, with rhythm, with control, following the breath….with the correct vinyasa. We will start by exploring the science of the Vinyasa System, where it came from, what it REALLY means and why its understanding is invaluable to our practice. We will discover how to truly use the breath as the primary guide for each and every one of our movements throughout the practice. We will break down the primary series to learn the correct vinyasa count (breath/movement pattern) for moving into, through, and out of each asana.
Opening Your Lotus – Elements of Sitting
1 March, 2-4:30pm. R450. Ekam Yoga, 62 Tenth St. Parkhurst
For many of us, putting ourselves into Padmasana is NOT easy. And sitting comfortably for more than 60-seconds can be like a tapas practice of will and determination. This class will use a sequence of seated asanas to slowly, slowly free the restricted parts of the body that need to be loose to comfortably come into Padmasana and sit in peace. We can then use this new asana, or seat, to ground ourselves for pranayama and meditation. All levels welcome.
