Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga introduced to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. It involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs.

Traditionally, Ashtanga yoga is practiced flowing from one posture to the next. In this workshop, we explore Primary Series, Second Series, Paranayama, and seated meditation

Join Randolph and learn more of the Ashtanga Yoga practices.

Please join Suzanne Manafort on this inward journey, and learn to establish a stable and enduring center of health and awareness.

Meditation is a systematic technique for knowing yourself on all levels.

From childhood, we are taught to examine the external world and not how to be still and pay attention to our deeper levels of consciousness. Lack of self-understanding is why we struggle in relationships, and why we experience confusion and disappointment.

As the process of turning inward deepens, awareness is transformed. The highest levels of joy and clarity can be experienced through meditation.

This three week series is priced at $80. Please sign up in our online store or at the yoga center.
