Please call to register as there are a limited number of spaces.

Over the weekend we will explore this system safely and intelligently in a linear fashion, while dispelling many of the misconceptions associated with it. Join Key West native, Miami-based Ashtanga Yoga teacher Patrick Nolan for a comprehensive introduction to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as taught by Sri K.Pattabhi Jois. The course will include safety and modification of asanas when necessary, led class versus "Mysore-style" self practice, and aspects of yoga beyond asana practice. 

Friday 5-7:00 pm: Foundations. In this workshop we will break down and learn Sun Salutations and standing postures, concluding with chanting and Q&A.

Saturday 7:30-9:15 am: Guided Half Primary.

Saturday 2-4:00 pm: Guided Half Primary (the second half). In this workshop we will explore the trickier postures of the primary series, explaining their function and how to modify them.

Sunday 7:30-9:30 am. Mysore style Self Practice. The practice in its optimal form, done from memory (to the best of one's ability, no need to freak out) and in silence.

Sunday 2-4:00 pm: Asana Masterclass. This will be just like the performing arts masterclass, in which each student will get to work in-depth on the asana of choice with the rest of the students as an audience. This will be a chance to work, and hopefully achieve a breakthrough, on any elusive or extra tricky asana.
