Primary Series with focus on the Sun Salutation

Saturday, September 26th, 9:00-12:00

Joan leads a primary series class, taking time to break down the Sun Salutation with special emphasis on jumping back and forward as well as linking movement to the Ujjayi breath. Special attention is also paid to "lift ups". 

Backbending and Inversions

Saturday, September 26th, 14:30-16:30

Joan helps students find freedom in back-bending. She unlocks the secrets to these sometimes challenging poses, so you leave feeling grounded and open at the same time. This is an intense 2-hour practice, breaking down the backbends of the 2nd series and exploring the world of dropping back. This practice is for intermediate to advanced students and inversions are included. It is taught workshop-style so we break postures down and look at bodies to gain a deeper understanding of these transformational poses: Kapotasana, Pincha Mayurasana, Urdhva Dhanursana, and drop-backs. Joan will also assist students in different ways of entering and exiting handstands in preparation for Sunday afternoon's program of sustaining long headstands and shoulderstands.


Sunday, September 27th, 9:00-11:00

A Mysore-style class where students who know the primary and/or second series can practice comfortably at their own rhythm while Joan circulates through the room providing hands-on adjustments and further personal instruction.

Inversions: Headstand & Shoulderstand

Sunday, September 27th, 14:30-16:30

Inversions are an important part of our practice creating profound shifts within our nervous system and brain preparing us for meditation. Headstand and shoulderstand are referred to as the king and queen of all yoga asanas and are included in the finishing series of Ashtanga yoga. Headstand is referred to as the king of all poses developing masculine qualities of will power, steadiness and clarity of the brain, while shoulderstand develops the feminine qualities of patience and emotional stability.

When performed together these opposite effects create a strong sense of balance. In this workshop, we will break down the important parts of learning to hold headstand and shoulder-stand and protecting the neck by strengthening the shoulder girdle. We will use pincha mayurasana and handstands as prep poses to work us up to a long headstand. This will  prepare you to move into the higher limbs of Ashtanga Yoga – Pranayama & Meditation. All levels welcome!


Four sessions are scheduled from Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon.

Style: Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga vinyasa is a hatha yoga practice transmitted to Pattabhi Jois from the great yoga master Krishnamacharya. It is for students seeking an invigorating approach that purifies, stimulates and energizes. It consists of postures practiced in a fluid rhythm with a concentrated breath, steady gaze, and internal contractions to direct vital energy. Due to the dynamic nature of this practice, one feels completely energized and purified in each cell of the body and also in the mind. Go to the Ashtanga yoga page.
