    THE BREATH OF ASHTANGA                                  Wenesday 18.30-20.30

    Ashtanga Vinyasa comes alive with breath.  When breath is balanced, the experience of the body opens up, revealing endless patterns of sensation.  As these patterns unfold, we are drawn out of ourselves, out of the darkened spaces in which our stories reign.  Our images of ourselves become transparent and we are exposed to the open radiance of sensory experience.  In this workshop, which combines gentle practice with philosophy, we explore the techniques of breath and bandha that give Ashtanga Vinyasa its phenomenal potency.  Our explorations will give us an experientially grounded but philosophically illuminated perspective on the inner process of Ashtanga Yoga.

     

    MULA BANDHA                                                         Thursday 18.30-20.30

    In Ashtanga Vinyasa, mula bandha is one of the most revered techniques. But when we ask what mula bandha is, we get a confusing array of answers.  Some say that mula bandha is the toning of the pelvic floor.  Other say that mula bandha is the experience of non-duality.  What do these disparate things have in common?  This workshop aims to clarify.  By observing the subtle breath within our bodies, we discover a thread of sensation that reaches from the pelvic floor to the soft palette, a thread that connects us to the source of our vitality.  By awakening our natural love and admiration for where that thread leads, we can invite some of the finer experiences of mula bandha to unfold.

     

    TASTING THE POISON                                             Friday 18.30-20.30

    Yoga practice is said to be the antidote for samsara, the poison of conditioned existence.  When the practice starts to work, this poison comes to the surface, darkening the waters of our minds.  If we meet our turbulence with compassion, we can gradually turn poison into insight. In this workshop, which combines philosophy with gentle asana and pranayama, we discuss how to work with our resistance to the practice.  We explore the physiology of samsara in our own own bodies, and we learn how to use breath and bandha, together with other internal gestures of support, to release our resistance, kindle our compassion, and open the inner space of our minds.

     

    THE AXIS OF ALIGNMENT                                       Saturday 10.00-12.00

                                                                                                             Saturday 15.00-17.00

    Ashtanga Vinyasa works with two opposing patterns, the expansive pattern of prana and the contractive pattern of apana. These patterns are the elements of the practice, and postural alignment can be thought of as the continual rediscovery of balance between them. In this workshop, we explore the balance of prana and apana through some key postures from the Ashtanga system. Suspending our preconceptions about proper form, we experience the dialectical relationship between the inhale and exhale patterns as they present in our bodies.

     

    Through a sustained attempt to balance them, we discover a new axis of alignment, one that brings depth and vibrancy to the postures themselves.

     

    THE SECRETS OF VINYASA                                     Sunday 15.00-17.00

    Ashtanga Vinyasa strengthens our internal currents of breath.  With assiduous practice, we can learn to ride these currents, gliding on them with elegance and grace.  In this workshop, we learn the techniques that underlie this ability, and we apply them to some of the more dynamic movement patterns of the Ashtanga system, including sun salutations, jump throughs, jump backs, press ups, and more.
