Event description


Breath Roots Core: An in-depth look at the core and essential principals of the practice of Ashtanga Yoga and how it can be used as a guide for any yoga practice and in life itself.

Morning Practice:

We will start as close to the beginning as we can, without getting stuck or paralyzed! Each day starts slowly as we move together through a Led Class. Beginners will find ways in the instructions to adjust and to take the time needed to be safe and continue on a steady pace. More experienced students will improve by clearing dysfunctional patterns, finding profound subtleties of the practice, and creating a smoother, faster advancement with less injury! Chuck will help us all recognize the voices of Mara, Maya, illusion, and distraction as we work towards clarity and freedom.

Afternoon Sessions

Our afternoons will include a practice session, a period of Q&A and a clinic where we can go into detiail with any chanllenges or difficulties that reveal themselves as we go along. There will be ample time for questions and to dive into particular subtleties of the practice, including how we use our spines in forward bends, backbends and twists; bringing light to the dark places by breathing into the back body; protecting our shoulders; measuring our progress by the quality of our effort rather than illusory apparent "results"; and doing partner work to help each other learn, especially in the areas we cannot see ourselves. We can learn to trust ourselves and we can help each other!

All levels are welcome. The intent is to help each of us to find our own optimal level of comfort and challenge, and to find our own practice.

*Class hours are from 9am - 4pm Monday - Friday with a 1 hour lunch break (times of break can change day to day depending on practice). **Wednesday class will be from 8:45am-3:45pm***

*Registration priority is given to students who are able to participate in the full intensive. Depending on space availability, we may open up single day spots closer to the start date of the intensive.
