Livestream (Shari) – In person (Chiara)

Required for Asana Track


Saturday, 10:00am – 1:00pm   Patanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga: The Foundational Support with Shari

This first class will focus on building a foundation of Asana and Pranayama, with the Yamas and Niyamas as key points throughout. There are particular asana and pranayama practices that support and sustain a regular and deepening meditation experience. These practices are not just foundational, but necessary components for the more rewarding aspects of meditation. The 8 Limbs were never meant to be separate. They are part and parcel of the whole of yoga practice. We have often considered them separately to better understand each aspect, but the promise of yoga is the interweaving and interconnectedness of the 8 Limbs that culminate in Samadhi.

Saturday, 2:30-4:30pm  Functional Embodied Anatomy: The sacred bowl of the pelvis and Goldilocks with Chiara

The Pelvic Floor can be a bit of a mystery: is energetic flow held up by too much tension in your pelvic bowl? Or is the container leaking energy? How to tell? Like Goldilocks, what feels “just right” for you? Get an embodied tour of the geography of the area, connect with the flow of breath and life force and discover through the ebbs and flows of the pelvic floor, what feels just right.


Sunday 10:00am – 1:00pm  Patanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga: The Continuum of Practice with Shari

Based on the guidance of the Yoga Sutras, built on the foundation and interwoven practices of the yamas, niyamas, asana and pranayama, this class will have a greater focus on the inclusive nature and practices of Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (focus) and Dhyana (meditation). Through the wisdom, understanding and study of the first 7 limbs, practiced regularly with respect and intention, we will experience how yoga gives us the tools and means to guide us towards the freedom and fulfillment of Samadhi.


Sunday 2:30-4:30pm Functional Embodied Anatomy: Feet to Psoas: Grounding to Fly with Chiara

 Sitting as much as we do in our times has created even more distance between our sense of ourselves and Earth; this increased distance from our perception of ourselves shows up with issues with what connects us with Earth, both physically, mentally and emotionally. Renew your relationship with the ground through feeling the support and spring that it provides when energy flows from the feet, through the legs and up the spine. Experience functional patterns that supports grounding to fly.
