August Mysore Intensive with Yaelle Wittes

August 1st to August 31st – Monday to Friday from 7:45 to 9:45 am
* no practice on Moon days Monday Aug 7 and Aug 21 *

Deepen your practice with Mysore style practice intensive. Get personal guidance, adjustments, and the benefits of a daily yoga practice.

What is Mysore style?
Mysore style is the traditional method of practicing Ashtanga Yoga. Students learn the Ashtanga postures and follow the Ashtanga sequence with the help of the teacher and a visual guide, practicing independently.

Can beginners practice Mysore style?
Rooted in parampara, the direct transmission of knowledge from the teacher to student, this system allows each student to practice at their pace and level, while benefiting from individual adjustments and support from the teacher. Delve deeper into your practice whether you are beginning or more experienced in this intimate class setting. All levels welcome.

*Since Mysore style is not a led class, there is no fixed start and end time. Beginner students will need about 1 hour to practice and can arrive anytime in the practice window. The studio will be open at 7:15am for those who would like to start a little earlier and will be open till 10:30am for those who like to sleep in. Yaelle will begin teaching at 7:45am.

DYNAMIC ALIGNMENT: 5-DAY ADVANCED WORKSHOP

In this workshop, we we learn to use alignment to grasp the functioning of our bodies, rather than limit ourselves to what our movements look like. Function takes precedence over appearances, alignment becoming an expressive function that improves over time.

Come play with the dynamic alignment process!

GAGA/People Class with James Viveiros

Saturday August 19th from 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM
Cost: $16 plus tax

Gaga is a movement language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years and which is applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members.  The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement, and it continues to evolve today.

Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with themselves and others.

Gaga has two tracks: Gaga/people and Gaga/dancers.
