Breitenbush Hotsprings, Oregon Asana Kitchen

Enjoy the refuge of Ashtanga practice in a forest retreat setting with excellent food and healing hot springs. We will do AM Mysore style classes, pranayama, kirtan and sutra chanting. There will be talks on Yoga philosophy as applied to practice, Asana, Pranayama, theory and yogic diet. Students who are newer to Ashtanga AND who are serious about practice are encouraged to join.

Daily Sample Schedule

6:00am-8:00am -- Mysore Class
8:00am-8:45am -- Pranayama
8:45-9:15 -- Break
9:15am-10:15am -- Yoga Sutras Study and Chanting

Study of the Yoga Sutras offers key insights on how to better work with your mind in your daily asana practice. David will give a talk on book 1, sutra's 20-39; this section focuses on how to clear and concentrate the mind by identifying and working with the 9 obstacles that hinder progress in practice. The short chanting portion is also an excellent introductory way to experience the sound vibration of the sanskrit language as a means to meditation.

10:15-4:30 -- Break
4:30pm-6:00pm -- Asana Theory Investigation

Based off of what David sees in the morning Mysore class he will choose specific asanas to thoroughly explore and investigate. Students will also be able to ask specific questions about asanas that are troubling them and leaving them puzzled.
