Certified Ashtanga Yoga Experts

Harmony Slater & Russel Case

are at YogaŞala!





Strengthening the Connection to Bandhas Workshop


Mula Bandha and Uddiyana Bandha are important keys to the asana practice. This Primary Series class will bring focus to what these "energetic locks" really are and how they can be used to create a greater sense of lightness, balance, and ease of movement. Learn to cultivate a deeper understanding and awareness of bandhas.



Handstands Begin in Primary Series


Leaning to balance on your hands begins right from the first sun-salutation. If you want to start to build up the strength through the arms and core to practice handstands, the foundations are found right in the postures of primary series, starting with every Vinyasa – learning to jump back and jump through



Ashtanga Primary Led & Conference: Ashtanga Yoga as a Mirror for Self Study


The Eight Limbs give us a framework for cultivating a spiritual practice. This is an opportunity for students learn more about how to use the practice as a tool for transformation. There will be time for students to ask practice related questions or other yoga related questions. This is a chance to receive guidance from a Certified Ashtanga yoga teacher with 20 years of practice experience.
