6-8PM Guided Primary Series
8-830PM Q&A

Saturday
9-11am: Mysore Style $50
2-4pm: The Root of Asana – Yogic Breath, Part I $50
This class helps you locate your pelvic floor, your first step towards Mulabandha and your doorway to understanding the inner body, finding calmness of mind and firm yoga postures. Taking base in simple yogic breathing and light movement you will learn how to identify, activate and use the power imbedded in your pelvic region. Through asanas such as Surya Namaskara, jump-thrus and forward bends you will learn how to optimize your innate potential for strength, stability and energy. All Levels Welcome.

‘That which is the root of all existence and on which the restraint of the mind is based, is called The Restraining Root (Mula Bandha) which should always be adopted since it is fit for Raja Yogins.’  – Sankaracharya/Aparoksanubhuti

Sunday
6-8am: Mysore Style $50
2-4pm: The Breath Body / Yogic Breath, Part II $50
Finding your ‘Breath Body’ increases your aptitude for lightness and grace. But what is the breath body and how do you find it? This session explores the subtle body’s effect on your yoga practice. The connection between flexibility and breathing cannot be overestimated – a compromised breath makes for a stiff body. Working with simple twists and backbends you will learn how to identify, release and use your body’s innate potential for easing deeper into bending through breath awareness. You will leave this class with a blueprint of how to practice with more pleasure and less pain, while bridging the physical with the energetic. All Levels Welcome.

‘As the big bird soars, so the Yogin defies death like a lion over an elephant. This is how Uddiyana Bandha should be performed.’ – Yoga Chudamani Upanishad

Full workshop: $250

The Inner Body

Underneath the skin, beyond the physical body lies something more subtle and hard to define. There is an unfathomable depth to the human spirit. Yoga is a quest for the deepest state of connection. This class teaches you how to journey into the inner body in a real and pragmatic way. As the waters of the mind still, you are able to perceive the depth level of reality. Cultivate a heightened state of awareness through a guided meditation. Apply this more refined and precise level of awareness to the practice and truly enter the inner body. All levels.

Ashtanga Magic: Breath, Posture and Gaze 

Delve into the secrets of the Ashtanga Yoga lineage, known as the Tristana method, and discover the magic of breath (pranayama), posture (asana) and focal point (dristhi). Break down the energetic alignment of key postures in the Ashtanga Yoga method and build the foundation for a meditative, awareness based practice. Starting off with the Sun Salutations and progressing through the Standing Postures, Kino guides you into a devotional practice that mergers the physical and subtle bodies and honors tradition while embodying the present. All levels.

Be Strong

The yoga practice is a physical discipline with a spiritual intention. Strength in yoga is never just about getting the postures, but is instead an inner journey. By challenging your limits of what you know as possible you meet yourself at a deep level and discover hidden stores of strength. The purpose of this class is to bring you closer to the true spiritual realization of your own innate power center within. Careful emphasis on alignment, the development of the illusive bandhas, healthy breathing and firm grounding in the spiritual tradition of Ashtanga Yoga make this class a unique offering in the world. Delve into many arm balances, inversions and other key strength asanas from a technical and spiritual approach. Leave with a direct experience of what it means to truly be strong.

Ashtanga Yoga Full Primary Series 

Surrender to the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method with careful emphasis on the traditional vinyasa method and have fun along the journey. Experience the integrity and purity of the Ashtanga Yoga practice and be prepared to sweat.

 Be Flexible

If you think that flexibility just isn’t for you or feel blocked on key poses like forward bends or bends this is the perfect class for you! Learn how to cultivate the calm and equanimous mind and tap into an inner state of infinite possibility. There is a place of infinite peace within, you just need to discover it. Instead of forcing your body into submission, change the paradigm and set yourself and your body free. Surrender is the magic word that opens the locked doors of the inner body. Dive deeply within and discover what it means to truly be flexible.
