Upside Down & Backwards: Playing with Asanas & Transitions

with Laura Olson

Saturday, April 27th, 12:00-2:00pm

$30 to register/ $35 day-of

Midtown Studio

Often we focus so much on the pose that we forget there’s deep magic in the middle places. Take a deep dive into transitions, jumps, binds and inversions with a touch of Lila, a playful approach. Bring your questions, favorite and least favorite poses and transitions, and don’t forget your sense of adventure.

Laura Olson


As a former dancer, Laura has always been kinesthetic, but yoga is what made her finally feel at home. A devoted Ashtangi and reverently rebellious yoga teacher, she has studied extensively in the United States as well as in Mysore, India with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois. Laura teaches both traditional Ashtanga as well as Ashtanga-influenced vinyasa in workshops, classes, and private lessons in the New York City and Woodstock areas.

Sequencing Intensive Module with Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash, Apr. 5-7

Sequencing: Choreographing the Flow

April 5-7, 2019

Teachers: Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash

sequencing yoga teacher training module, ytt, 200-hr, hudson valleyThe Vinyasa style’s signature quality is flowing movement and creative sequencing. In addition to being really good for the body, moving from one posture to another in a yoga class can be a beautiful art form that elevates the spirit. Learn the basics of choreographing logical and seamless sequences, then develop your skills by practicing how to design sequences around a unifying theme based on anatomy, yoga philosophy or mythological narrative, for instance.

Learn:

    • How to arrange a yoga sequence
    • How to link sequences together to create a whole class
    • How to design kramas (logically progressing steps) around a guiding theme, such as:
      • a pose
      • a particular body part
      • a mythological narrative
      • a yoga concept
Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash

Having met in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Leigha and Jacquelyn decided to plant their yoga roots in Kingston in 2011 when they opened The Yoga House in Uptown Kingston. While their styles of practice and teaching differ, their polarities bring a very balanced approach to sharing yoga with those training with them. Both have studied with various teachers, Leigha most recently with Shiva Rea and Jacquelyn with David Swenson, bringing combined knowledge from different approaches to the practice. While they joke about not reading anything but yoga books, they are continually filling their wells with new inspiration for their committed personal practices and the classes that they teach.
