Ashtanga Yoga-Primary Series Workshop
- Time: 2:00pm ~ 4:00pm
Ashtanga is an ancient system of yoga designed to cleanse the body both internally and externally through the asanas (poses). This workshop will begin with an introduction to the Eight Limbs of Yoga and you will have the opportunity to take notes as you learn about the philosophy of this practice. Winter will then guide you through the Primary Series as we become familiar with the sequence and proper alignment of each pose in the body. Throughout the practice, an introduction to Pranayama and Bandhas will be shared along with the opportunity to incorporate some of the practices of the Eight Limbs, into our experience of the postures, encouraging a deeper understanding of this ancient yogic system which we can apply to our life on and off the mat.
Winter is a passionate songstress, ceremonialist and certified yoga instructor with 700 hours of training. She studied Ashtanga Yoga in Goa, India, Transformative Yoga in Northern California and Mystical Yoga and Shamanism on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala.
Winter has spent the last four years in countries and communities around the globe where she received teachings from elders and experienced many traditional forms of healing. From this spiritual work she has found inspiration and guidance for holding space and using music as medicine. Inspired by earth-based traditional ways, Winter strives to weave this wisdom into her work, guiding students to become aware of our deep connection with the earth and of the sacred space within where we find our awakening source and an abundance of love and gratitude for this journey.
