 Building Blocks of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa
And Kaivalya Paad
September 23, 2017 8:30 a.m. to 5:50 p.m.

We are happy to welcome Stacy Plaske (E-RYT 500) owner of Balance Yoga Center. Stacy is a graduate of YTTI and continued her studies with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, as well as many other teachers and traditions. She is a truly devoted, inspirational teacher whose love and application of yogic principles shines through in all aspects of her being.

In this workshop Stacy will explore the building blocks of the Primary Series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa System as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. We will explore form & alignment, internal form (balancing Prana & Apana) as well as the correct Vinyasa Krama of this system. Using Ujjayyi breath, drishti (gaze) and bandhas (internal locks), this powerful practice focuses the mind, realigns & strengthens the body, and nourishes the spirit. We will start with Surya Namaskar A & B, move through the fundamental standing postures as well as a variety of seated postures and finish with the closing sequence (Back bends & Inversions) This workshop is for all levels of practitioners as we will safely move through the practice with modifications wherever needed. We will experience gentle Pranayama and Seated Meditation after we rest as well as chant Shanti Mantras.

Mokshapriya will start the fourth Chapter of Patanjali Yoga Dharshan called Kaivalya Paad or “the highest only one, the ultimate,” Salvation.
