Half Primary Series Ashtanga with Gail
Mondays 
Fall Sessions







Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic, flowing practice that builds strength and focus. It is also the style of yoga that brings up the most fear and apprehension.

' I have to practice all the time'
 'You have to be young and strong'
 'There are all kinds of rules with this practice'
 ' It's a cult!!!'

Gail Cannon is celebrating her 30th year of ashtanga practice and invites you to learn ashtanga, the practice, it's history and how it can be a practice for you. Half Primary focuses on the first part of the introductory series. There are forward bends, twists and inversions.  We will break down the practice into easy to understand segments and bring focus to the building blocks of the practice such as the sun salutes, the jump back and jump through.  Drop-in are $17.

 Sun Salutations 101

This sequence is for everyone! Come learn alignment principles and modifications. Leave with it customized to you!

This hallmark sequence of vinyasa yoga is for everyone. Everything you need to know about alignment lies within the first half of the sequence. It just becomes a matter of translating it into the sequence’s more advanced poses: chaturanga, upward facing dog, and downward facing dog. We’ll look at common alignment issues that appear within each of these poses and how you can customize and modify your practice to prevent these misalignments as you build the necessary strength and flexibility to tackle the classic sequence safely.

Workshop Outline
· Mini practice to warm up
· Introduction of common anatomy terminology
· Use of breath to support moving into poses
· Introduction of component parts and alignment principles using half sun salutations
· Building and modifying the big three: chaturanga, upward facing dog, and downward facing dog
· Putting it all together in your flow
· Savasana

Appropriate for all, from beginners to advanced practitioners!

Hip Opening 101
with Tory
Friday October 3
6-8 PM
$30


What is going on in the hips directly affects what is going on in the rest of the body! This makes it especially important to find the right balance between strength and flexibility in the muscles that attach to the pelvis. When that is achieved there is a feeling of openness and stability that translates not only into your yoga practice but into your everyday life!
Drawing on aspects of positional therapy and yoga sequencing, this flowing practice is designed to strengthen the muscles that are weak and lengthen the muscles that are too short bringing balance and mobility to all aspects of the pelvis. You’ll leave class with a brand new set of hips!

Requires a minimum of 5 pre-registered/pre-paid students to run as scheduled. Cut off for registration is 24 hours prior to workshop
