Yoga Nidra

December 10, 2021

Date: Friday, December 10, 2021

Time: 7 pm - 9 pm

Cost: $20 (in advance); $25 (at the door)

Yoga nidra is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world. Yoga nidra promotes deep rest and relaxation that isn't found in your average meditation practice. Yoga nidra offers a space to explore what you need in the moment, well as an opportunity to work on releasing long-held emotions. In the yoga nidra class, we will have a short practice, followed by meditiative rest.

Bring your mat, pillow(s), blanket(s), and anything else you need to relax and rest.

BODY, BREATH AND PATANJALI


Shed light on the connection between the physical practice and the deep philosophy presented in the Yoga Sutras. Learn how the physical practice of asana embodies Patanjali's sacred principles and teaches every yoga student how to integrate the practice with our daily lives. Begin with a classic pranayama technique as the catalyst to spark a direct experience of how yoga works. Join this class for a rare opportunity to uncover the inner teachings of who we are and how we function as individuals in yoga, on and off the mat. All levels welcome.

DETAILING THE PRIMARY SERIES, PT. 1 (SuryaNamaskara - Navasana)


In this class we take "scenic side tours" in a traditional Primary Series guided class. Following this immaculate practice form we will allow for occasional inspired off-springs into technical detail and useful hints for moving your practice along, potentially bridging spiritual gaps between your body, the practice and how it applies to our lives off the mat. We will explore anatomical mechanics for a deeper, injury free and more informed practice, as well as touching on the background of the Ashtanga method. Tim's sincere, down-to-earth and humorous teaching style makes for a fun, focused and reverent experience. All levels welcome.

GATEWAY POSTURES OF THE PRIMARY SERIES
(Bhujapidasana, Kurmasana, Supta Kurmasana)


The Primary Series, Yoga Chikitsa, is meant to heal and strengthen our body and mind, preparing ourselves for a deeper and more subtle asana exploration in the Intermediate Series, Nadi Shodana. But sometimes we get a bit stuck! the leg just won’t go where we want it to or our knees, wrists or shoulders seems more achy than happy when attempting the higher notes of this series, also called the 'Gateway Postures' as they serve as indicators that our body has grown ready for a next level. But what to do when we can’t find our body molding those fancy shapes? This workshop addresses that issue. Focusing on technique, proper alignment and anatomical insights will help you understand how your body moves and how to progress to a next level of your aptitude. We set up for a detailed experience of these difficult gateway postures, slowly peeling the layers that obstructs our view and motion required to find the freedom and power which Sri Patanjali promises in this yoga method. All levels welcome.
