This workshop will help any avid student of Ashtanga/Hatha Yoga to skillfully meet the poses of the formidable 3rd Series. But let’s be clear from the start: 3rd Series is super challenging and it is necessary to have a good working knowledge of 1st and 2nd Series (or a strong, committed hatha yoga practice) in order to take part in and benefit from this offering. However, that said, this workshop will show you that if you’re plucky, and approach the process with proper tact and spirit, you can gain entrance into some truly great poses that you may have thought were beyond you.
In the classes we’ll identify a logical set of steps for the transitions and poses, and we'll distinguish between the easier and harder poses throughout the series. We’ll research the easiest, most basic steps or stations and look into how to progress towards the farthest, most complex steps or stations. You’ll find friendly yet challenging versions, modifications, and drills that are suitable to you and your unique set of circumstances.
In six sessions, you’ll learn how to gain access to at least some of the beautiful poses of 3rd Series! The talks will focus on how the asana work relates to yoga philosophy and on applying DG’s seven asana principles to the practice and the philosophy.
Classes will be divided into two parts:
1) On Saturdays, there will be a 90 minute asana portion with breathing followed by a 60 minute talk.
2) On Sundays, there will be a 90 minute asana portion followed by a breathing practice.
