MONDAY, 4/6

8:30 - 9:30 am   Ashtanga Inspired Vinyasa with Megan Convey                                                                                         Gómez

Ashtanga Yoga is a highly structured Vinyasa based practice consisting of 5 Asana series. Students work to master each pose of the first series in order to move forward to the second, repeating the same series daily until they are ready to advance. The ultimate purpose of the ashtanga practice is the purification of the body and the mind through asana, breath and gaze.

 

In Ashtanga Based Vinyasa we will provide students the bare bones of the Ashtanga practice, creating a strong foundation in any vinyasa practice that you chose to peruse. Our sequence will remain within the primary series with appropriate variations for persons of all body types, abilities, & levels of yoga.

8:30 - 9:30 pm   Late Night Yoga Fundamentals with Careid Surprenant                                                                               

This class offers a yoga, meditation and pranayama practice for all levels including those new to yoga or those recovering from an injury. Poses will be explained with a focus on alignment, modifications encouraged and taught in a mindful manner. We will close with a short meditation to send you off to a peaceful sleep.

Tuesday, 4/7

6:30 - 7:30 pm   Elements of Ayurveda with Marcelyn Cole

How are the elements Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space, expressed in you and your world? Are you grounded and steady, but sometimes a stick in the mud? Are you laser-focused and bright while perhaps a bit of a hothead? Are you a breath of fresh air though occasionally spaced out?

 

The ancient holistic healing tradition of Ayurveda is based on these five elements.

 

In this course, you'll unpack the ayurvedic concepts of dosha, subtle dosha, vayu, and gunas as frameworks for understanding yourself and the world. Class each month will cover practices, mindsets and lifestyle habits to find balance for your constitution physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

 

Come for Elements of Ayurveda at 6:30 pm and stay for Marcelyn's yoga class at 8:00pm to put them into practice!

 

Like all weekly, biweekly, and monthly offerings, this class is free for Inner Sense members.
