Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga: The Primary Series

This workshop is an introduction to the original vinyasa yoga, an ancient and highly refined system of yoga that cultivates physical strength, flexibility, endurance, grace and meditative focus setting the foundation necessary to progress safely along the path of yoga.
 
All students, regardless of limitations, can benefit greatly from this practice. The full Ashtanga system practiced with devotion leads to freedom within one’s heart, destroys the impurities so that the light of knowledge and discrimination shines. Adam offers a soft, holistic approach to this strong practice due to his many years of unbroken discipline in Asana as well as Pranayama and Meditation.
 

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga:The Intermediate Series

The intermediate or second series is called Nadi Shodana, meaning nervous system purification. It cleanses and strengthens the nervous system and the subtle energy channels throughout the body. This series is only introduced when the primary series is strong. It follows the same progression (sun salutations, standing, sitting etc.) as the primary series, but introduces new poses such as backbends, feet behind the head variations, twisting and arm balancing.

Pranayama/Meditation

In this workshop Adam will guide us through, in progression the three primary components of classical yogic practice. We will begin with a moderate vinyasa sequence as a preparatory exercise so that we may sit comfortably for an extended period. Moving on to an experience of pranayama, a stretching and subtle control of our vital energy through breath work which helps to further purify our body and steady the mind. The workshop will conclude in the practice of Meditation, the act of effortlessly concentrating on one point. It is the gateway to inspiration, intuition, insight, well-being and regeneration. The science of Meditation is a slowing down of ones brainwaves that contributes to a healing and rejuvenation of the entire human system.

The Yogic Practice Of Pranayama: A Workshop

For many yogis pranayama is considered the bridge between asana and meditation and has the power to enhance both.

Having sustained a daily pranayama practice for the last 20 years I would like to share with you my experience.

In this workshop I will be leading you through a moderate vinyasa practice beforehand as a preparation for this next stage of yoga.
