10–hour weekend intensive with Jess Tomaz
Sat & Sun Sept. 22 & 23, 12-5pm
Ashtanga Yoga, as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, is known worldwide to be one of the most effective systems for mastering the body and transcending the mind. It is a powerful practice designed to bring about total balance of body, mind and spirit. In this intensive workshop we´ll explore Ashtanga´s roots, philosophy and core principles: asana (postures), vinyasa (breath linked with movement), drishti (point of focus), bandhas (energetic locks), and ujjayi pranayama (detoxifying breath). We´ll study all the poses of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga along with their modifications and proper alignment. This high-energy flow is all about journeying the river within.
This workshop is open to all students with six months yoga experience. This is ideal for intermediate-advanced students, teachers and teacher trainees.
Jess has been practicing yoga since she was 15 years old. She was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga by her teacher Sanjaya in Brazil. Jess completed her Ashtanga yoga teacher training in Macae, Brazil also completing a second yoga teacher training with Katherine Lucas of Karma Yoga.
