Introduction to Yoga Series Starting January 2017

Reduce stress, get fit and flexible

Are you new to yoga? Ready to rekindle your practice?

In an intro series, your teacher starts with the basics. Each week will build upon the previous one. You benefit from learning this way because you

  • Start with a group – you’re in a group with other new students, you grow together and develop a sense of community.
  • Learn progressively – this way you never get overwhelmed or feel lost. Your teacher builds the series up progressively and will remind you what you learned the previous week.
  • Learn safely – you start with classes that are meant for beginners, we never ask you to do crazy or advanced postures. This way you’ll never feel out of your league.

You have two choices starting in January (scroll down for the details of each):

  • Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga Series with Stephen Link – Mondays 6-7:15pm
  • Introduction to Yoga: Mind, Body, Breath with Sean Ambrose – Wednesdays 6-7:15pm

Sometimes life gets in the way and you miss a week. You will be able to catch up when you return, because the teacher will repeat the last week’s lesson.

Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga Series

Learn the fundamentals of the Ashtanga yoga practice in a slow, safe and comprehensive manner.

In this seven week series you learn Sun Salutations, the fundamental standing postures, accessible seated postures, breathing techniques, and philosophy of the Ashtanga yoga system. Your teacher will introduce the Mysore approach to learning. We keep class size small so you get lots of attention.

Who this series is for

Students seeking a physically challenging yoga practice or curious about Ashtanga yoga. If you like using your body’s strength and breaking a sweat, this series will improve your strength and flexibility.

sean-ambroseAbout your teacher
Sean Ambrose

I am in love with people and understanding their beauty, passion and divinity through yoga. I believe that we all share immense beauty and strive to reflect this in my own yoga practice and teaching. From asana, mediatation and pranayama to coffee, smiles and skateboarding we can use yoga to develop our capacity for empathy, compassion, integrity and respect. With this in mind, I endeavor to truly love and serve fellow beings in all that they do.
