Learn to Float: Graceful Vinyasas
Focusing on the vinyasas of the Sun Salutations, and the transitional jumping vinyasas, this session offers detailed techniques, alignment and energetic principles that take us towards graceful, weightless transitions between postures in the practice. This session is useful for students beginning their Ashtanga path, for teachers needing tips and techniques to share with students, and for more experienced practitioners looking to inspire and deepen their practice.

Led Primary Series with Sanskrit Count: Combing through the practice
Using the traditional Sanskrit count and focusing on the rhythm of the breath, David will lead us through the entire Primary Series, as taught in Mysore. In the tradition, every posture asana has a specific number of counted vinyasa to enter and exit, all linked closely to the breath. This wonderful teaching method is an invaluable tool for all practitioners as it provides focus and mindfulness in developing the personal practice.  Practicing with Sanskrit count also shows respect for the traditional roots of Ashtanga Yoga. Along the way, David will offer some deeply valuable detailed instructions on how to keep your practice clean, correct and consistent.

Jump Back & Jump Through
Jump Backs and Jump Throughs are the transitional movements that link Ashtanga's sitting poses together.
