Guest Teachers at In Balance Yoga in December

December 5  • 12:00 - 3:00 pm,   $25

In this class we'll discuss 2nd series and its relationship to 1st series and how it was traditionally taught.  What some of its prerequisites are and different views on how it should be taught.  We'll also touch on the effects of second, back bending in particular, and go over some basic alignment principles and adaptations.  As an introduction to 2nd we will discuss how to safely and joyfully integrate it with 1st series.

Wednesday, December 16:  4:15 - 5:30 pm

The traditional asana flow of Ashtanga can be seen as a way of organizing all the hundreds of asanas into a workable whole. The Ashtanga sequences give us a blueprint of how to organize Asana so we can intelligently move through the various families and groups of Asana and integrate them into a workable practice. In our class we’ll bring in other Asana from the families of Asana into the flow of Ashtanga’s primary series. By doing this we can explore Asana with in the wisdom of Ashtanga Vinyasa practice.
