Philosophy of Ashtanga Yoga & Mysore Style

Why do we commit to a consistent practice? How do we apply the lessons that are learned on

our mat? Join Taylor to dive deeper into the philosophy behind the Ashtanga method. Learn

about the therapeutic benefits and how the practice translates into our daily lives.

Saturday, August 7th

Mysore Style Class

Join Taylor for a unique opportunity to receive individual attention and deepen your practice in

a Mysore-style setting.


Foundations: Clean it Up

In this workshop, we will take an in-depth look at the Ashtanga Yoga method while discussing

Surya Namaskara and the standing poses of the Primary Series. These poses play an integral

role in beginning the process of purification, realigning the skeletal system, and toning the leg

muscles. We will spend ample time exploring proper alignment and techniques to work through

restricted movements. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of practitioners.

Sunday, August 8th

Led Primary Series Class & Introduction to Pranayama

Full led Primary Series class using the traditional Sanskrit count followed by a brief introduction

to pranayama. The control of prana or energy is known as pranayama, which helps the

practitioner to better understand the breath and aids in the regulation of mind and body.


Tristhana Method: Breath, Bandha, & Dristhi

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.
