ASHTANGA WEEKEND WORKSHOP with DAVID GARRIGUES

ASHTANGA WEEKEND WORKSHOP with DAVID GARRIGUES

DGashtangaWS.jpg

ASHTANGA WEEKEND WORKSHOP with DAVID GARRIGUES

Reno, Nevada

April 12-14, 2019

*** ALL LEVELS WELCOME ***

This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in Ashtanga with a motivation to learn. David is skillful in providing explanations of elusive, often unspoken aspects of the practice. In weekend workshop’s, he offers clinic style led classes that investigate specific aspects of the practice that help students come to new perspectives on how to practice more intelligently, safely and joyfully.

*** ABOUT DAVID ***
David Garrigues is one of a few teachers in the US certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. David met Pattabhi Jois in 1993 and over the next 16 years he traveled to Mysore India to study with the great yoga master. In 1996 Pattabhi Jois granted David a teaching certificate. As an Ashtanga Ambassador he bases his teachings on the idea that ‘ANYONE CAN TAKE PRACTICE’, a core idea in the teachings of Sri K Pattabhi Jois. David’s mission is to help others flourish within the living, contemporary lineage of Ashtanga Yoga.

In his workshops David offers a combination both traditional counted vinyasa led classes and clinic style led classes that investigate specific aspects of the practice in varying levels of detail. These important classes feature more verbal instruction; they give students a chance to slow things down, see new ways to orient during practice, get explanations of elusive, often unspoken aspects of the practice, and understand the Ashtanga method in greater, more subtle detail. Mysore, chanting and kirtan classes are also frequently included in a workshop. During the weekend David weaves together studies of asana, pranayama, bandhas, vinyasa, chanting, bhakti yoga, yoga sutra’s and other elements to help develop Ashtanga Vidya (knowledge).

***FULL WEEKEND WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION***

FRIDAY

6:00-7:30PM

ASHTANGA’S DYNAMIC VINYASA DIMENSION THROUGH SURYA NAMASKARA

This asana class will focus on how proper vinyasa knowledge extends beyond memorizing the number of positions of the asana; you are also meant to know the vinyasa positions dynamically within your body.  There is a great art to understanding the subtle progressions of movement that bring you into and out of each asana, exploring this refinement is what brings you into readiness, poise, beauty and alignment in your postures.  We'll look at how such vinyasa knowledge helps you understand how to refine your awareness and to learn to see the practice as chiefly dhyana, meditation.


SATURDAY

9:00-10:15

EXTRACTING STRENGTH THROUGH STANDING POSTURES

In this class we’ll explore how the cultivating a combination of dynamism and stability in the standing postures provides you a perfect means of entrance into the internal practice of Ashtanga Yoga. We’ll explore the importance of using the feet, legs, and hips to create strength, stamina and concentration. Better understand how the standing postures are an essential key to building a strong asana foundation. Learn to better access to mula and uddhyana bandhas (locks), see how the grounded support of the lower body can awaken the breath and the spine and lead the way to steady gazing (dristi) and to dynamic meditation (dhyana).

10:15-11:30

LEARNING HIP INTELLIGENCE THROUGH SEATED POSTURES

In this class David will teach skillful ways to open up your hips safely. There is an integrated thinking process about the action in the hip joint and the transfer of energy through the leg from the hip to the foot that you want to draw from in your approach to opening your hips. You learn to call on the frog like circular action of external rotation, to explore animal like movements that show you the playful and practical possibilities of what your hips can do, and thus you begin to safely reclaim and to discover the natural range of motion of your hip joints without straining your knee or ankle joints.

1 HOUR BREAK

12:30-2:00

PRECISION, PURIFICATION AND PRANAYAMA

This class is devoted to pranayama, chanting, and discussion of the central role breathing plays in attaining success in practice. This class will utilize breathing exercises, retention, and discussion, to help you better centralize your awareness on breath during practice.
We’ll study how to use breathing to build powerful strength in your asanas and to effect nadi shodana, purification of the pranic channels. Prana Vidya, knowledge of prana, helps you to progress towards subtlety as you concentrate your mind and better direct the power of the internalized prana. We’ll discuss how cleansing is not limited to the tapas that you create during practice, but rather how purification is a central theme that encompasses all aspects of your life. We’ll explore how to access awareness of your more subtle energy channels through breathing and how to better direct this energy both on and off the mat.

SUNDAY

9:30-11:00

MYSORE

Mysore class provides the student with a concentrated and heightened learning experience that will help he/she develop practical and technical yoga skills and be immersed in the inspirational magic and poetic soul of the practice. Each student will receive valuable one to one guidance from David on developing his/her personal practice.  The student will develop skill in applying the practice techniques in ways that are logical, challenging, intelligent and fun. David focuses on learning how to follow the Ashtanga system and at the same time creating a practice that honors individuality, versatility and creativity.

11:00-Noon

YOGA SUTRAS TALK ON BOOK 1, SUTRA 20

Study of the Yoga Sutras offers key insights on how to better work with your mind in your daily asana practice. David will give a talk on book 1, sutra 20; this is one of the most famous sutras in Patanjali’s, Yoga Sutras, and talks about the 5 qualities to cultivate for progress in practice. 

Sraddha—FAITH
Virya——ENERGY/STRENGTH
Smrti——MEMORY
Samadhi—MEDITATION
Prajna—AWAKENING OF WISDOM OR INSIGHT

This unique combination of qualities are meant to be cultivated and are the gifts of your practice. They can be thought of as 5 jars that you want to fill and keep filling.  David will discuss each one of these powerhouse words in this 1 hour talk.

The workshop is geared towards beginners and anyone looking to get back to the basics of yoga.  Annie uses her anatomy based Yoga Medicine Training to help practitioners focus on alignment and moving safely through sun salutations and basic postures.  

I believe in a therapeutic, orthopedic, anatomy-based approach to movement in the body.  My love for yoga started in 2001 and following my path to teaching, became a certified 200RYT in 2005 from the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA through the amazing teachings of Ganga White and Tracey Rich.  Not long after receiving my yoga certification I was introduced to the Pilates method.  I realized the synergetic relationship Yoga and Pilates could offer to truly connect the body to mindful movement.  I then pursued my Pilates training and received my Reformer I, II, III certification through Balanced Body University.  After becoming a mother in 2010, I received my children's yoga certification in San Francisco, CA so I could give my daughters and other children the gift of yoga in their lives.  I'm always continuing my education and am most recently working on my 500RYT through Yoga Medicine.  I am continuing this journey expanding my depth of knowledge and working closely with healthcare practitioners to provide yoga and Pilates as medicine for both the body and mind.

ACRO Workshop <3 Partner Communication through ACRO

Partner Communication through Acro: Challenge your mind and body while learning new ways to communicate with a partner.

Acrobatic, friend, business and romantic partnerships all share similar challenges when it comes to communication. In this workshop we will practice new communication and observation skills, breakdown barriers, and test what makes a partnerships work. We will focus on individual growth as well as interpersonal skills through a series of exercises and games that will challenge anyone from a first time acrobat to a long time acro and or yoga practitioner. The same progression based model will apply to partnerships; so bring your long time life partner, an acro partner, your bff, a friend from work, your mom, or the person you met yesterday but want to learn more about and come play!

We will offer a variety of partner exercizes, some verbal, some non verbal, and several using acroyoga basics to explore communication and connection between you and your partner. No acroyoga experience required to participate in this workshop. However, if you do have acro experience Eric and Amber will offer you exercises to do during the workshop that are at your level.

Cost is $50/couple. $45 if you pre-register before the date of the workshop.
