Ahem: Changes to Upcoming Workshops:
Jr. Intermediate Workshop Sept 24-25, New New hours, new new schedule:
Saturday morning (public) asana class; 9am-noon; Saturday afternoon (teachers), 2-4pm
Sunday morning (public pranayama) 8:30-10am ; 10:15-1:15 pm (public asana class); 2:15-4:15 (teachers).
This is a complete different schedule from the two posted on Wednesday, so I hope word gets out.
For our regular weekend students, please note: on Friday afternoon, and Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 23-25, The advanced practice and regular classes with Devon and Melissa are cancelled. Regular students also note: The public classes available to you are Saturday morning asana class 9-noon, Sunday morning pranayama 9-10am, and Sunday afternoon asana 1-3pm.
Jawahar Bangera workshop, Nov. 4-6: The workshop is offering an additional $5 off the entire cost for members of the Iyengar Yoga Association of the South Central US. All other information is correct.
With an understandable mix of regret and hope, I will take the Thursday morning 10am Gentle Level 1 class off the studio schedule. Effective September 29. I am teaching one too many gentle work classes. So I will experiment with opening up this part of my schedule to my other projects and activities.
Tuesday 10am Gentle work will remain as always, as will the Wednesday 10am Level 1 class with Leann. And everything else.
We are offering a New Student 5/$50 promotion:
Our standard 5-class pass for only $50! If you enroll online or in class, you will find a promotion button for you when you click to buy. The code you should enter is:
If for some reason you do not find this, you can enroll in person and get the same discount. Not just an online deal.
Clear Spring has transitioned to new MindBody Online software. This MindBody software will allow you, the student, to enroll in single classes or class packages online (this will be easiest, a big time saver), or to enroll at the studio and pay by cash, check or credit card. Record-keeping will be more reliable at my end of the business, for which we should all be grateful.
Further (and this is the real reason behind the changes), this new system is designed to allow you to attend any of our Iyengar teachers' classes using the same class pass. You no longer have to pay teachers separately for your classes. This makes it easier for you to explore different teachers and find a class that fits your schedule best. This is better.
The system is now in place for you to check in with any teacher using the MindBody system.
And keep checking for new events on the horizon.
Clear Spring Studio was the first dedicated yoga studio in Austin, opening in the spring of 1990. The studio has had many physical locations in this time, but since 2005 we have resided at this beautiful, green, quiet, and blessed (twice! by Tibetan monks) studio. Devon Dederich is the director and manager.
Upcoming Iyengar Workshops
September 23-25, Junior Intermediate Teacher's Workshop
November 4-6, Jawahar Bangera (discount for IYNAUS members)
Saturday Mornings at Clear Spring
Pranayama First Thing
At 9:15am we begin with a pranayama class, learning to make the mind and body quiet and focused enough to remove disturbances to the breath, and then use it to locate, store, and move the energies of the body called pranas.
Philosophy and Asana
Come for a nice Saturday morning asana class, where we also explore the understanding behind what we do as it is explained by our original sources, the Patanjali Yoga Sutra, and the Bhagavad Gita. You do not have to read the material in advance unless you want to. We are happy when you do, but no matter what, we will give things for you to think about as you practice.
Anatomy and Asana
We offer special classes using asana to learn about different regions of the body--legs, arms, spine, neck, nervous system, digestion, etc. Classes will present an overview of particular structures, and then show how asana (and pranayama) can strengthen, support, or restore healthy movement and function to the body parts,. We also mean to show how yoga can greatly improve sensitivity and awareness of the position, condition, and action of all our human physical parts.
We work with more challenging poses in our repertoire. Those just beginning to learn intermediate level work are welcome to come; we want to help you develop your skills happily and safely. For those who can already do, we can help you go beyond.
