Krista Shirley Weekend Workshop: November 7-8, 2015 with Krista Shirley Next held on Sat, Nov 7, 2015 at 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Sat Nov 7, 2015 - Sun Nov 8, 2015
Saturday, November 7th:

9:00-11:30am
Mysore: “Mysore style” is traditionally practiced silently, with individual instruction, and is named after Mysore, India, where Ashtanga yoga originated and was taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois for many years. Anyone is welcome to come to this class. Students will work at their own pace, according to his or her individual needs, while Krista walks around the room providing hands on adjustments and verbal instruction as needed. If you do not have the primary series memorized, you will spend your first few weeks in class repeating bits of the standing sequence until it is committed to memory. At that point, you will come in daily, do your sun salutations, standing postures, seated postures and finishing postures on your own, under the guidance of your teacher. Mysore style is the absolute best way to learn and practice Yoga. It enables you to create a dedicated, daily practice that will take you infinitely deeper into the peace and calm a quiet mind and strong body can provide.
Ashtanga Yoga, done daily, will increase flexibility, strength, endurance, and physical and mental balance; it will cleanse the internal systems of the body and provide a healthy source of focus and dedication in ones life – something everyone needs!

12:00-2:00pm
BBD: Breath, Bandhas, Drishti: Deep breathing with sound gives us body and mind control. Bandhas are internal muscular and energetic centers, that, when activated and engaged pulls our attention within. Mastery of bandhas enable us to gain strength from the inside out, which, over time, gives us complete body control. Drishti’s are gaze points to direct our attention during asana practice.  In order to successfully progress in our practice, we must understand the concepts and learn how to apply them in our asana practice.  But how?  Spend the afternoon with Krista exploring these invaluable concepts in depth, and learn how to apply them in the asanas of primary series.  Serious work and some serious fun!  Suitable for all levels. 2 hours

Sunday, November 8th

9:00am-12:00pm
Introduction to Second Series: The second series of the Ashtanga Yoga tradition is called Nadi Shodhana (nerve cleansing). The asanas of second series are comprised of backbends, powerful and strong balancing postures, hip openers and deep twists that thoroughly cleanse the nervous system. In this session we will explore the second series syllabus of asanas. Students currently practicing second series and beyond will gain greater understanding of the form and purpose of these postures and take their practice to another level. Students still working through primary will find tremendous inspiration for what comes beyond primary series. All students are welcome and all students will truly find a greater appreciation for this yoga method, the sequences of the series’ and a new found level of gratitude for their personal daily practice. It is highly recommended that all who attend have an established practice in the Ashtanga Yoga method. 3 hours.


12:30-2:30pm
Meditation and Pranayama:
Spend several hours with Krista learning how to incorporate pranayama and meditation into your life, both of which benefit our moods, our bodies, and our Ashtanga practice. This session will help us better understand our breath, which is the most vital process in the entire body, for it is the link to all aspects of our human experience. Pranayama practice helps us to learn how to deepen our control of the breath, which enables the practitioner to control prana (energy). The control of prana through control over breath is Pranayama, and consistent practice will open the door to our ability to control the body, mind, and soul. We will end our session with seated meditation practice, exploring ways to calm and quiet the mind and body. Suitable for all levels. 2 hours.

Weekend: $180
Early Bird $160 if paid by October 7th

Saturday, April 9th, 2016: Tristhana Method: Breath, Bandha, & Dristhi - 12:30-2:30pm ($45)

Come prepared to explore the basis of the Ashtanga method known as tristhana. Tristhana means the three places of attention: breath with bandha (internal energy locks), asana, and dristhi (gazing point). When practiced simultaneously, the tristhana method becomes a tool to steady the mind transforming the physical practice into a moving meditation. In this workshop, we will explore the internal elements of the practice while taking a deeper look at the fundamental poses of the vinyasa sequence.

Sunday, April 10th, 2016: Mysore Style Practice - 9:00-11:30am ($40)

Sunday, April 10th, 2016: Transitions: Lifting Up and Jumping Back - 12:30-2:30pm ($45)

In the Ashtanga system, the vinyasa is the thread that links each posture like the beads of a mala. While lifting up, jumping back, and jumping through may seem daunting at first, this course lays the groundwork to begin building the core strength and bandha awareness that allows you to float through the transitions. Learn how to begin moving through these transitions with ease to bring grace and fluidity to your practice. We will also spend time looking at the vinyasa count to further cultivate the meditative aspect of the practice. This is a fun and challenging workshop for all levels of practitioners.
