Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Led Class ~ Half Primary Series

Date:
04-Feb-2023
Time:
12:00pm-1:45pm
Instructor:
Guest Teacher, Aura Reverol

Using the traditional Sanskrit count, Aura will lead you through the half Primary Series, as taught in Mysore, India. In the tradition, every posture has a specific number of vinyasas to enter and exit, and each movement is linked to the breath. This teaching method is an invaluable tool for all practitioners as it provides focus and structure when developing a personal practice. This class is designed as an introduction to ashtanga vinyasa yoga for students who may have never heard of, or practiced this specific system, no previous experience in Ashtanga is required.

Guest Instructor, Aura Reverol, is back in Redding offering Ashtanga Yoga Workshops and led classes.

Introduction to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary Series Workshop

Introduction to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary Series Workshop

Date:
05-Feb-2023
Time:
12:00pm-3:00pm
Instructor:
Guest Teacher, Aura Reverol

In Sanskrit the primary series is called “Yoga Chikitsa”, which can be translated as “yoga therapy”. What is this sequence therapeutic for? The physiological benefits attributed to the primary series include positive effects on the liver, spleen, stomach, kidneys, and other abdominal organs.

In this workshop we will explore the physical and mental benefits of the Ashtanga Primary Series, we will understand why the name of this series is translated as “yoga therapy” and what are the tools offered to follow when practicing so we can maximize its benefits. We will as well look at the alignment of key asanas of this series and learn accessible ways to approach the postures that are most challenging to students. We will look at different techniques to help us understand the poses more deeply and feel their essence, no matter where you are starting from.

Introduction to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Second Series Workshop

Introduction to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Second Series Workshop

Date:
11-Feb-2023
Time:
12:00pm-3:00pm
Instructor:
Guest Teacher, Aura Reverol

The Second Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is called ‘Nadi Shodana’, which can be translated as “purification of the nadis”. Thus, the Second series is designed to clear the nervous system and the energy channels of the subtle body or “nadis”. Physiologically, this particular sequence is intended to extend your breathing capacity through a mix of backbends, deep folding forwards, twists and inversions postures. It fires up the sympathetic nervous system with the goal of creating stress on the nerves in a safe space to learn to cope with it in a non-stressful way. This sequence makes the perfect ‘counter-sequence’ to the Primary Series.

In this workshop we will explore the alignment, preparatory exercises and variations for different levels of students of the key postures of the second series and basic pranayama techniques that will make you more receptive to the practice of asanas.
