 Module 2:

THE ROOTS OF ASHTANGA PRACTICE (weekend workshop)
14 -15 June 2013
(TT 500: 8 hrs)


Workshop schedule: 


Part 1: Foundation & Breath
Friday, June 14th - from 17:30 to 20:00  

In this workshop we will explore basic asanas, with a particular focus on alignment and breathing, as well as how to link the asanas into a flowing sequence.  We will cover the sun salutations and standing poses, building a solid foundation from which to progress and get the most out of your practice.

Part 2: Bandha, Drishti & Vinyasa
Saturday, June 15th - from 10:00 to 12:15

Locate your locks and move into your breath to free your practice. One of the challenges of the Ashtanga flow is the vinyasa. Breaking the vinyasa down into its components, we will look at ways in which we can work towards achieving the float back and float through by combining various techniques with breath, bandha, foundation, alignment and Drishti. With these under control, anything can become possible!

Part 3: Focus on Core Strength
Saturday, June 15th  - from 14:00 to 17:00 

No stability without core!  Improve your practice through simple exercise and key asanas.  We will also explore the interdependency and contradictions of the apparently opposite actions of connecting to the core versus reaching through the limbs.


Module 3:

LED CLASS WITH CHAKRA CHANTING
Sunday, June 16th - from 8:00 to 10:15 (new time!!!) 
(TT 500: 2 hrs) 

Experience Darby's unique way of using chanting as a guide for the breath, followed by a further study of posture alignment.


Module 4:

ADJUSTMENT CLINIC
Sunday, June 16th - from 12:00 to 17:00
(TT 500: 5 hrs) 

Darby will share his expertise in teaching skills and giving adjustment to students.  This section is highly recommended for anyone who is currently teaching yoga or for those students at any level curious to learn more.

BIO:

Darby & Joanne have been practicing Ashtanga Yoga for over 25 years. They began their practice with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the master of Ashtanga Yoga, in 1979 when they spent four years in Mysore, India. They are part of the few teachers worldwide who have attained the highest level of Ashtanga Yoga teaching accreditation and are certified by Pattabhi Jois to teach the original Ashtanga method.

Darby's teaching is dynamic and direct while giving students the essence of the energy of this yoga. His wisdom and warmth attract a vibrant community of students who are drawn to his humor, his attentive nature and his steadfast commitment to improving each student's physical alignment.
Darby gives workshops all over Europe, Canada and the United States, and spends few months a year with his master in Mysore. He recently released his video, The Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series.

Joanne is a source of inspiration to many yoga students around the world. For her, yoga goes beyond the asana practice...it is a way of life. After so many years of practice, she truly believes in the power, benefits and the transformative effect of the ashtanga yoga method.
