Instructor: Ananda Ma
Fees:: Pre-registered: $45. EARLY BIRD SPECIAL: $35 (by May 15)
Levels: All

This workshop will focus on fundamentals of hips and lower back. We will work with a slow-tempo and ample time to explore deeply this mystical path of Iyengar yoga. Loosen the energy of tight groins from prolonged periods of sitting, driving or postural stress, improve your circulation, learn to establish a dynamic hip anatomy, and alleviate back pain. This workshop will also awaken new understanding of the dynamics operating the legs, hip joints and pelvis. Experience a physical and energetic transformation that boosts awareness of unrealized dreams. Ananda’s classes are absolute safe for beginners and yoga therapy students. Modifications will be given for special needs.

Places are limited to 13 students so please sign up in advance. Reservations are in order of actual payment.

ANANDA MA is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, CIYT-1000. Trained at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco, her goal as a teacher is to inspire authentic experiences that lead to the art of integrating body, mind and action. She had the honor of taking classes in Pune, India with Geeta Iyengar that allowed her to practice asanas with greater effectiveness, ease, and stability. Ananda brings a spirit self-encouraging mindfulness to nurture the very core of your being in her teaching. She is also a graduate of the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her experience in Chinese Medicine enriches her practice and teaching of Iyengar yoga.

GET A TASTE OF RESTORATIVE - YOGA BREATHING TO EXPERIENCE RELAXATION with Ananda Ma

Ananda Ma Date/Time: Saturday, June 17, 2017 • 2:00–5:00pm
Instructor: Ananda Ma
Fees:: Pre-registered: $45.
Levels: All

Do you have a desire to learn more about breathing and take your breath awareness to the next level? Have you ever wanted to explore pranayama but didn’t know where to start?

If so, I’m excited to let you know that Yogic-derived breathing is a popular tool that is used increasingly in complementary and alternative medicine to promote health and well being. The clarity of your breathing is so vital in these days of continued stress and anxiety. This workshop will explore restorative poses and conscious breathing to help you release the muscular and soft tissue action of the diaphragm. Learning more about your diaphragm and the intercostal  muscles can relieve anxiety, and help you to elicit the relaxation response to facilitate positive change. The support of yoga props will be taught to extend and elongate the soft tissues used in breathing. This class is great for all general Level students! No previous experience of pranayama is needed. You will learn preparatory breathing techniques and restorative postures.

ATTENDING a full weekend of classes allows students to deepen the effects of the practice and make personal progress. We highly recommend this time with Kofi to do just that — he will challenge you intellectually, as well as physically. His classes are not for extreme beginners, but they provide strength and stamina and will help in building a firm foundation to the practice of serious students, without encouraging dependence. We urge you to attend these classes.

KOFI BUSIA is one of the foremost teachers in the Iyengar tradition. One of Mr. Iyengar’s earliest students, he has been teaching for over 43 years, and has held his Advanced Certificate for over 42 years. He has taught all over the world, and some of the most senior and best known Iyengar yoga teachers all over the world have been his students. He started studying with BKS Iyengar while a student at Oxford University, becoming the youngest person to be certified at his level. Throughout the 1970s and up until the mid-1980s he studied regularly with BKS Iyengar at his Institute in Pune. As well as being a widely respected and renowned teacher, Kofi has translated the Yoga Sutras directly from the Sanskrit.
