  • Student Practice Series: TUESDAYS, August 14 - 28
  • 3-Week Refresh and Review, Summer 2018

    Meeting August 14, 21 & 28.

    This special three-week session is a perfect opportunity to refresh and reinforce aspects of practice that serve as a foundation for the ongoing series. Special attention will be given to stances, transitions, bandhas and breath, along with help in some of the more challenging poses. We will cover important principles related to freeing the energy of the feet and legs, regulated intake (mitahara) and how to begin or refine your personal practice using the material you will be given.

    For the first time in three years, the summer series is open to all students with some yoga experience. Whether you have participated in one of the prior sessions or not, this series will refine your understanding of practice and build upon what you already know. For all students, the Summer Series is excellent preparation for the fall course beginning in mid-September, and participation in this series or instructor permission will be required for new students.

    Cost: $80 per person for full series. Tuesdays and Thursdays, $140 (discount not available for online purchase). Drop-ins: $29 per class.
