DIGGING DEEPER ROOTS #1/The Study of Yoga Philosophy

Weekend #1- "Establishing the Roots of Practice" Starts in less than two weeks!! 



This is a 3 weekend workshop series intended for students looking for a deeper understanding of the practice of yoga.   For those of you who looking to learn to teach this is an excellent opportunity to establish a great foundation to get started.  Take 1 workshop or all 3. All are welcome…students, teachers and those aspiring to teach!

Weekend #1 - “Establishing the Roots of Practice” Studying Yoga Philosophy
Saturday & Sunday February 9-10 from 11:00-5:00 (w a break for lunch) $150

We Plant the Garden. There are actually 3 schools of yoga philosophy: Advaita Vedanta, Classical Yoga and Tantra.   Having a broader understanding of each of these philosophies gives us an opportunity to begin to cultivate a deeper understanding of why we practice and what yoga means for each of us personally.  That understanding will help us to establish the foundational roots for our asana practice as teachers and students alike.

Weekend #2 - “Setting Strong Roots” Exploring Mantra, Puja & Pranayama
Saturday & Sunday March 16-17 from 11:00-5:00 (w a break for lunch) $150

The Garden begins to grow.  With a foundational understanding of what yoga philosophy means to us we can now start to dig a little deeper.  During this weekend we will explore the rituals of mantra, puja and pranayama as means to nurture and fortify our yoga practices.  As we practice we grow and with that we set strong roots as we go. 
Weekend #3 - “From Roots to Flower” Sequencing Strategies
Saturday & Sunday April 20-21 from 11:00-5:00 (w a break for lunch) $150

The Garden Begins to Flower.  Here we will explore the bounty of what is possible in creating an asana sequence.  This weekend we will work on sequencing strategies for forward folds, backbends, arm balances, etc…and also consider adapting sequences for different student levels.  We will talk about how to take the idea of where we want to go in our practices and what we’d like to do with our understanding of yoga into fruition, into a certain pose or set of actions.
