ASHTANGA CONFERENCE W/ DAY

The tradition of holding conference in the ashtanga lineage began with its founder Shri K. Pattabhi Jois and is continued by his grandson paramaguru Sharath Jois. We as authorized and certified teachers in his lineage on occasion will also hold such conferences for our local students. 

Holding conference provides an important channel for exchange of information between students and teacher. This exchange opens the dorr to conversation, questions and answers that there may not be time for, or may not be appropriate in the Mysore room. It provides time for reflection for both the student and the teacher to discuss ideas and concepts within the practice that may fall outside the arena of solely asana practice. With this time and space we are free to discuss a bit of theory, yoga philosophy, modalities for healing methodology in the asana practice and anything that may fall under the umbrella of living the life of a daily yoga practitioner. 

REFRESHMENTS WILL BE PROVIDED

MOON & JAI

The inspiration and power to create the life you desire is already within you. Embody your creative life-force, connect with your Inner and Universal guidance through intention setting and ritual, and experience miracles unfolding. By creating conscious space, and allowing yourself to be inspired, you are creating a blueprint for a life that is passionate, intentional and purposeful. Ritual is called meditation in action ~ through this practice  we allow ourselves to find peace within, and show up for our life in profoundly more empowered and grounded way.

The Practice of Bhakti Yoga: Mantras for Joy and Ease with Amah Devi

Kirtan is an ancient form of mantra meditation, a component of bhakti-yoga (the yoga of devotion), which has the power to open and purify the heart. This chanting, accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, brings the audience to its feet in the joy of singing, clapping, and dancing with pure devotion. In its heartfelt expression kirtan can induce profound states or meditation, bliss, and esctasy.

If you have a harmonium pls bring it to the workshop. If you are shopping for a harmonium, now is your chance to buy. Amah will have harmoniums for sale.

Cost: $35

Vinyasa counts with Day

THIS WORKSHOP WILL FOCUS MAINLY ON THE SCIENCE OF VINYASA: THE BREATHS AND HOW THEY ARE CONNECTED TO SPECIFIC MOVEMENTS IN AND OUT OF THE POSTURES OF THE PRIMARY SERIES. THE VINYASAS OR MOVEMENTS ARE TRADITIONALLY COUNTED IN SANSKRIT WHILE THE ASANAS OR POSTURES ARE HELD AND COUNTED IN ENGLISH. THE WORKSHOP WILL CLARIFY THESE VINYASAS AND SHED SOME LIGHT ON SOME OF THE MORE DIFFICULT TRANSITIONS AND POSTURES IN PRIMARY SERIES. THIS WORKSHOP IS IDEAL FOR PRACTITIONERS WHO FEEL THAT ASHTANGA YOGA IS TOO HARD, TOO CONFUSING, TOO COMPLICATED AND HAVE FELT DEFEATED BY THE PRACTICE BEFORE THEY HAVE EVER BEGUN. ALSO IT CAN ALSO BE USEFUL TO LONG-TIME STUDENTS WHO WANT TO GAIN CLARITY AND BEGIN TO MEMORIZE VINYASA COUNTS. EITHER WAY, YOU WILL WALK AWAY WITH A NEW UNDERSTANDING.

Intro to Mysore with Day

The Mysore method is the traditional way to learn and teach the Ashtanga Yoga practice. In many ways, learning Mysore can appear intimidating, as it required that the student memorize and learn a sequence of postures. However it is one of the most effective ways to learn and improve in yoga, especially as a beginner, because this practice can be tailor-made to fit any and every student in the room. Essentially it is like getting a private lesson in a room full of people. Therefore, with individual instruction, custom-built for the needs and abilities of each student. This 3 day intro workshop, is a friendly way to get the new students feet wet in a room full of beginners.

Backbend Workshop

Once a month, Day has been hosting special events in Miami so that her students at home can get some special attention since she travels so often. The July event is dedicated to backbending. This is not a typical theory workshop. This is purely exercise driven. We will work practically to very slowly and consciously develop the mobility to backbend with ease and eventually go deeper than you have imagined. For any and every level. This class will get you moving in ways that are deep and still feel good.

Thai-Yoga Bodywork with Shelly

Thai yoga therapy is a healing art, prominently known as The traditional Thai Yoga Massage, that roots back to the days of Gautama Buddha—about 2,500 years ago.

It is a combination of acupressure, asanas, stretching, palming, thumbing and gentle twisting. This helps in ushering back the balance in the body, deepens the connection between mind, body and spirit, in the giver and receiver.

Insight

Join Ahana Yoga for this unique yoga experience led by Jessie Potter. When we close the eyes we enlighten the rest of the sensory system. We learn to listen; we learn to feel; we learn to embrace the parts of us that are out of sight. Throughout this class, you will be blindfolded, which will reduce distractions through sound, movement, and meditation. Sight is a privilege, often taken for granted, and without it we learn to pay more attention to what goes on inside rather than outside. We let go of competition, we let go of comparison, and we look inwards without judgement. Gain a new appreciation for balance, body awareness, a heightened sense of listening, and an evening of reflection. Join us at Ahana Yoga's magical studio providing the optimal listening experience for your mindful immersion. Close your eyes and learn to see.
