Ashtanga Led Primary class
Join Dean Hollingsworth, North Texas’ only Authorized ashtanga teacher and owner of Dallas Ashtanga Yoga Shala for a traditional ashtanga Led Primary series class on 1/29 4pm. Dean will share insight into the ashtanga practice as it’s shared traditionally from his teacher Sharath Jois in Mysore, India. The practice will use the traditional Sanskrit posture name for each pose and the vinyasa for each sequence counted out in Sanskrit as each move is choreographed with either an inhale or exhale. No experience required as explanations will be given on the fly. Leave your ego at the door, come to learn, and explore the traditional yoga practice that the vinyasa and power flow methods were originally derived from. Do what you can and pause where you need to. At its heart, ashtanga is simply a breathing and awareness practice that is accessible for ages and body types when practiced slowly and consistently. Dean will expose you to the roadmap of ashtanga through the practice of the primary series or as it’s known in Sanskrit, Yoga Chikitsa (yoga therapy).
