Lori Henry

Lori, an Ulster County native, began practicing yoga over 11 years ago in an effort to control stress and to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In 2015, she visited The Yoga House and decided to embark in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program to improve her own home practice and to become educated in yoga philosophy. After graduating from the program in 2016, she realized that many people feel that yoga is not accessible to them for multiple reasons. She wants to tell them, “YOU CAN do it!” and she wants to help generate confidence so those skeptics can discover how to balance the mind and body in order to accept oneself and others. She believes the best method is through a lighthearted and practical approach. Lori is dedicated to helping her students feel good about themselves and their practice. She is currently continuing her education at Shakti and is enjoying her life-long yoga journey.

Ashtanga Field Trip to Practice with David Garrigues

Ashtanga Field Trip:
Practice with David Garrigues

at Sruti Berkshire Yoga Center

Sunday, May 27th

Group discount for The Yoga House Ashtangis: $100/person

 

David Garrigues is an internationally recognized ashtanga yoga teacher and is among a small group of teachers who received teaching certificate directly from the late founding master of ashtanga yoga Sri K Pattabhi Jois. David will be 75 minutes away at Sruti Berkshire Yoga Center in Great Barrington, MA, from May 25-28, and we’re organizing a trip on May 27th to do the morning Mysore practice, pranayama session and Asthanga workshop, with some time in between it all to enjoy Great Barrington together.

 

Here’s the schedule:
  • 6:10am-meet at park and ride in Kingston
  • 7:45-9:30am-Mysore with David Garrigues
  • 9:30-10:00am-Pranayama with David Garrigues
  • 10:00am-Breakfast outing
  • After Breakfast–Great Barrington outing: There’s plenty to do in Great Barrington, including some light hiking on the Housatonic River, or just moseying through the town.
  • 3:00pm-4:30pm-Workshop with David Garrigues, Ashtanga Dynamic Vinyasa Dimension (see description below)
  • 4:30-homeward bound!

 

Ashtanga’s Dynamic Vinyasa Dimension
This asana class will focus on how proper vinyasa knowledge extends beyond memorizing the number of positions of the asana; you are also meant to know the vinyasa positions dynamically within your body. There is a great art to understanding the subtle progressions of movement that bring you into and out of each asana, exploring this refinement is what brings you into readiness, poise, beauty and alignment in your postures. We’ll look at how such vinyasa knowledge helps you understand how to refine your awareness and to learn to see the practice as chiefly dhyana, meditation.

 

Price for the yoga for the day is $100 (Sruti is generously giving us a group discount for the day) . We’ll be collecting money and paying Sruti for the group. Because we’ll be paying Sruti via The Yoga House, we’d prefer cash or check payment, or we can take CC for a $5 additional charge.
