For those who can’t drop everything and spend a month during the summer in Boulder studying with Richard Freeman, here’s a next best thing: Five days during the winter.
Yoga Workshop has announced that the sign-up for the five-day “Essentials” course begins Oct. 26. (And yes, we highlighted this last year, too.) All the details, including the link you’ll need in a couple of weeks, is right here. A taste:
In the morning sessions we will ground our study with an in depth exploration of the internal patterns of breath and alignment found in the Primary Series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. In the afternoons there will be an introduction to Sanskrit chanting, an introduction to the internal pleasures of pranayama and a comprehensive overview of the foundational philosophies which form the context for yoga practice. We will read and discuss the Kena and the Katha Upanishads, selections from the Yoga Sutras and then learn to appreciate the plurality of approaches to yoga through an introduction to the Bhagavad Gita.
The cost is $600. It runs Jan. 26-30, 2015. Which means you could go right from there to Maya Tulum with Tim Miller. (Of course, then you’re starting to push that month you may not have to spend.)
