Integrating Asana through Breath

June 4th 2:30pm-5pm

This workshop combines learning through practice, in-person assistance, and discussion.

Exploring the forward folding poses that predominate the Primary Series sequence of Ashtanga, we’ll investigate how to fully employ the whole spine by using the breathing techniques of Viniyoga.

Particular attention will be paid to experiencing and understanding the physical and vital energetic influences accessing the asanas through the breath.

This workshop will support and expand your ongoing practice.

You will explore a variety of yoga asana and breathing practices to experience how our yoga practice nourishes our bones and when we nourish our bones, we nourish our bodies deeply.

Join this interactive, semi-private class series – limited to 3 students.

Small group allows for special attention to meet your needs and answer all your questions.

What’s included:
– SIX live hour-long group lessons, which are also recorded for you to replay
– Weekly practice “homework”
– 30 minute 1:1 call with Mary Beth for personalized guidance

Series is $210

Here is what past participants have said about their experience:

The fact it was pre planned assured I participated during this time in my life. Mary Beth’s quiet embodiment as a basis for her teaching made it squarely land and stick. I learned some key things at a doable pace that I have incorporated into daily practice.

The most valuable aspect of this workshop was the “tone” that Mary Beth set & used. Very nurturing and emphasis on improving practice from where each student is.

“I really enjoyed the group. It’s wonderful to have the 1:1 attention without too much pressure of an actual private session.”

“The tiny little individual tips, whether to me or the others in the group, were so helpful. I was able to really see it when it’s somebody else vs. myself.”

“Six weeks was the perfect timeframe.”
