2 hour talk,

Align Your Practice: Adjustment & Alignment Clinic
This course is designed for anyone familiar with the Ashtanga Primary Series that wishes to take their practice to the next level. Participants will learn proper alignment and adjustment techniques to go deeper in the postures with safety and greater awareness.

Topics include:
• Maintaining and progressing your personal practice
• Philosophy of Ashtanga and Mysore-style
• Working through and helping to prevent injuries with proper alignment
• Reading bodies and learning safe adjustment techniques

Transitions: Lifting Up and Jumping Back
In the Ashtanga system, the vinyasa is the thread that links each posture like the beads of a mala. While lifting up, jumping back, and jumping through may seem daunting at first, this course lays the groundwork to begin building the core strength and bandha awareness that allows you to float through the transitions. Learn how to begin moving through these transitions with ease to bring grace and fluidity to your practice. We will also spend time looking at the vinyasa count to further cultivate the meditative aspect of the practice. This is a fun and challenging workshop for all levels of practitioners.
