Visiting Teacher : Theresa Murphy

Friday : January 19 : Yin Yoga & the Subtle Body

Saturday & Sunday : January 20-21 : The Art of the Adjustment:  Hands on Assisting for Yoga Teachers

About Theresa: “My deepest intention in teaching yoga is to expand minds, open hearts, and to be a catalyst for discovering the wisdom and wonder of an embodied life. I cross-pollinate from many traditions, weaving together various combinations of skillful intentional sequencing, sustained holds in poses, rigorous vinyasa, therapeutics, yin yoga, breathwork, individualized alignment, anatomy study, wisdom teachings, meditation, chanting, and open exploration of physical and mental awareness. I am a Yoga Alliance registered E-RYT-500. In addition to completing my 500 hour teacher training with Tias Little and the Prajna school, I completed the Insight Yoga Institute’s 500 hour training with Sarah Powers, reflecting my commitment to lifelong learning. Currently I wholeheartedly devote myself to ongoing studies with Tias Little, Sarah Powers, Patricia Walden, Amy Matthews, Patty Townsend, Scott Blossom, and Rolf Gates. I am honored to have been chosen by Tias Little to be one of his Senior Prajna Yoga instructors.”

Yin Yoga & the Subtle Body

Friday : January 19 : 6-8pm
Yin yoga encourages holding floor poses for long periods to enhance the Chi or energy distribution through the fascia, organs and bones. Restoring the flow of Chi within us has a direct impact on our psychological states, encouraging increased ease of being, as foundation for authentic mediation to occur.  In the evening practice we will explore the inner methods, various berth patterns & retentions, visualizations of the health of the organs, contemplation in the poses, as well as the foundation methods or Buddhist Mindfulness.

Mysore Style Self Practice
Sundays : 8:30-9:45 am {No Class 12/31}
This type of yoga class is an individual practice done in a group setting.  It is widely regarded as the best way to learn and practice Ashtanga yoga.  Here the instructor will teach each student a sequence of postures that challenges and develops strength and flexibility at a pace suited to the individual.  After becoming familiar with the sequence through repetition, the student is able to become self-sufficient and will be given adjustments as well as new options to progress as needed. Think of it as getting a private session at a standard class price point.
