Saturday Mornings at Clear Spring

 

Pranayama First

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 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. 

 

Intermediate Asana
 

Anne and Devon take turns working ourselves and students toward 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 a bit beyond.
