THE SECRET KEY OF YOGA FINDING TRISTANA IN PATANJALI YOGA SUTRAS
Yoga is the science of experience and a philosophy for living. We can find keys for how to lead a fulfilling and powerful life in the teachings of Sri K Pattabhi Jois and Patanjali Yoga Sutras. When we integrate the Tristana into each area of our daily experience we cultivate a deeper connection to our true identity, and learn to practice yoga in every situation.

AYURVEDA – ANCIENT REMEDIES FOR THE MODERN WORLD
Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga. It is the traditional healing system in Indian and is 5000 years old. Ayurveda takes into account the entire person, mind-body-spirit in its approach to creating greater health. We will learn about Ayurveda’s 3 constitutional principles: vata, pitta, and kapha, and you will discover how to find your own unique constitution. From these principles we will learn how to cultivate more balance in your daily life in routine in relation to your individual nature, which will help to increase your overall sense of well-being and healing!

THE ESOTERIC ELEMENTS OF YOGA – THE MARRIAGE OF SHIVA-SHAKTI
An Introduction to Pranayama and Meditation practices. Pranayama is the expansion of the vital life energy within. Kaivalya is the ultimate goal of our yoga practice. We will discuss the more esoteric aspects of the practice, and explore easily accessible ways to begin a practice of breath-control. Various methods of mindfulness will be introduced that can lead to the development of a meditation

ASHTANGA YOGA AS A MIRROR FOR SELF-STUDY & QUESTIONS
An opportunity for students to ask practice related questions or other yoga related questions. This is a chance to receive guidance regarding the biomechanics of troublesome asanas, techniques for addressing particularly dense areas of the body, and new strategies to work intelligently and therapeutically to support the healing of old injuries.

FULL PRIMARY SERIES – STRENGTHENING THE CONNECTION TO BANDHAS
Mula Bandha and Uddiyana Bandha are important keys to the asana practice. This Primary Series class will bring focus to what these "energetic locks" really are and how they can be used to create a greater sense of lightness, balance, and ease of movement. Learn to cultivate a deeper understanding and awareness of bandhas in your practice.
