Ashtanga 4-Week Beginner Series

This four week series will take you through the essential postures of the Ashtanga method and the diaphragmatic breathing technique that is so beneficial to the mind and body. You will learn the sun salutations and standing postures with pointers, demos and modifications as needed. Upon completing the series, you will have a small but mighty portion of the sequence to continue to refine and enjoy.

Classes are on Zoom or in-person and are approximately 45 minutes long. This series is great because students will have the opportunity to ask questions and get a thorough breakdown of the practice. The atmosphere will be laid-back yet informative.

*This series includes 4 45 minute semi privates for four consecutive weekends as well as a weekly 20-30 minute recorded practice class covering the previous weeks content. Series classes can be recorded if you’re unable to attend live. Come as you are! $108 investment for 4 semi-private classes over 4 weeks, 4 recordings and unlimited pass to all classes over the course of the series.

Beginner Workshop/Alignment Refresher

Join me on Saturday, April 24th at 2pm for a two hour exploration into the sun salutations and standing postures of the ashtanga sequence. This workshop will be perfect for beginners that have never taken yoga before as well as those looking to freshen up their alignment and awareness in the foundational postures. There is always so much to learn and relearn. Upon completing the class, students will be prepared to attend Mysore classes as well as the 30-Minute Guided Classes on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 8am. Investment: $50

 

Developing the Bandhas and Breathing

The most useful techniques in the ashtanga sequence also happen to be some to be the most elusive. Join Marsha for a 90-minute exploration into uddiyana bandha–the upwards flying lock, mula bandha–the root lock, and ujayi breathing or breath with sound and intention. We will go over several ways to access them and then practice applying them to many different asanas. You will leave with a clear understanding of these magical locks and the power of proper breathing which will help you create more space, stability, lightness and focus. This will certainly change your practice!  Date: TBD Investment: $35

4-Week BEYOND Basics Series

This four week series will continue the work learned in the beginner series.

Each week will be built up on the last. Upon completing the first class, students will be encouraged to attend regular classes on the schedule.

Breathe and Move Workshop

The ashtanga practice is a breathing practice but so often students view it as an exercise performance with the breath being an afterthought. In this workshop, you will learn to make the breath the focal point which will make your practice a moving meditation. This is not a pranayama workshop or an asana alignment workshop. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, this workshop will teach you to move and breathe more deliberately than ever. Join Marsha for this two hour workshop that will truly transform your life and practice. You will tap into the life force (prana) that brings connection and vitality on and off the mat. All levels will benefit! Investment: $40 and two hours. TBD

 

Ashtanga 6-Week Beyond Basics Series

This six week series will build upon what was learned in the beginner series. You will practice the sun salutations and standing postures with verbal cues in a steady and fluid pace. Week by week you will learn new postures from the first half of the seated asanas from the primary series.  Modifications, tips, and demonstrations will be provided to ensure each student can safely  execute the pose. Upon completing the series, you will be ready to attend the 1/2 Primary Series classes.

Classes are held on Saturdays at 7:15am (Zoom or in-person) for six consecutive weeks and are approximately 75 minutes long. This series is great because students will have the opportunity to ask questions and get a thorough breakdown of the practice. The atmosphere will be laid-back yet informative.
