Touching Infinity

When we open the scope of our practice to an approach that is more of a process than a technique or formula for alignment, yoga postures, mind and movement merge together into an expansive, liberating form that literally feels as though we are connected to infinity.
In this class, working with postures found the in the Ashtanga system of practice, we will explore the subtle layers of movement and form that facilitate this feeling and form.

Distant Cousins: Upward Bow and Downward Dog, with Mary Taylor

From some points of view Upward Bow and Downward Dog may seem diametrically opposed to one another. However from an alignment perspective and in terms of their integrating qualies, they have far more in common than may first seem to be true.
In this class we will work with the commonalities of these two postures and the linking patterns of breath, movement and form that allow each to inform the other making both more stable, strong and open. Co-Taught with Mary Taylor.

Class Level: Intermediate/Advanced.

Illuminating the Plumb Line

Within the vinyasa practice in the Ashtanga tradition, postures are linked together in flowing sequence on the thread of the breath.
This method of practice allows both movement and mind to settle into the core of the body as a means of bringing a sense of equanimity and illuminated form into each pose, each movement, and every breath.
