Abhyasa means practice, or the effort towards aligning and re-aligning one’s attention to the present moment. This training establishes you in the roots and rituals of Yoga through practice and presence.

We will employ the yogic practices of asana, pranayama (breath work), chanting, and various methods of meditation as our elemental practice. You will gain a profound understanding of the foundational asanas as alignment tools for safe physical practice, and for yoking the mind to the moment. Asanas are presented as elemental, sustaining, and deepening as well as a means to return to center to illuminate the path of creative sequencing.

In addition, we will consider various ethical observances to inform and sustain our choices on our mats, with our students, and in daily life.

ABHYASA includes:
  • Asana practice engaging body, mind & spirit
  • The deconstruction of asana into primary movement principles for clarity of alignment & sequencing
  • Functional Anatomy & Physiology: short segments to support movement & breath principles with relevance & meaning
  • Movement inquiries for evolving a keen and subtle awareness of Proprioception that you can awaken in your students
  • History & Philosophical concepts of classical Yoga
  • Pranayama practices to refine attention & shift vital energy
  • Dharana: multiple paths to focus your mind for contemplation
  • Basic Sanskrit pronunciation for key concepts
  • Yama & Niyama: learning & living the yogic ethical observances, on & off the mat
