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.

  • 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.

Yin Yoga & Sound Healing: rescheduled for Thursday, 2/1, 5:30-8pm

Meditate. Melt. Merge.

A Yin Yoga & Sound Healing Experience

with Will Leblanc, Lea Garnier & Beth Ylivisaker

Rescheduled for Thursday, Feb. 1st – 5:30-8pm

Hosted at our Midtown Studio at 474 Broadway, Kingston

Meditation with sound and yoga is one universal path to Self Realization, accessible to anyone, and appropriate for people of any religion or spiritual aspiration.

All life is relationship, and in this experience we will explore the dynamics between the practice of Yin Yoga and the therapeutic Sound Bath. By uniting our emotional, spiritual and physical bodies in a meditative way, these two up and coming modalities will help you come back to who you truly are: a vibrational being, in tune.

The practice of Yin Yoga is a slow and deep.  Based on the principles of stillness, it encourages students to listen to their body’s individual needs. A yin practice guides students past the muscle and into the connective tissue, joints and areas of tension that are being held in deep layers of the body. Students will learn an intuitive approach to working with the body that cultivates listening, facilitates the release of long held tensions and offers genuine relaxation. Simple postures on the floor will be practiced to relax your muscles in order to stimulate the ligaments, joints and layers of fascia. No yoga experience necessary!

Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Whether through the use of mantras, medicine melodies or the use of interval and frequency, these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance. Each human being is in essence a vibration. The molecule sings, the heart of the atom is tone, and the human has a sound body which comes in and out of tune. Enabling the soul to remember its true divine self, its spirit self, we can re-merge with all that is. Finding connection and balance with all that is, we find ourselves in wholeness and perfect health.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

A Weekend Immersion with Edwin Bryant, Ph.D.

February 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 2018

At our Midtown location, 474 Broadway Ave., Kingston, NY

Have you fallen in love with the Sutras yet?  This rich and many-layered text lays out, quite directly, the why and the how of yoga as it is meant to be practiced. This weekend intensive is especially appropriate for yoga teachers, serious students of yoga, and academics who would like a deeper understanding of the origin, content and living application of the most essential text in the yogic lineage as a whole. Edwin Bryant’s published commentary and interpretation summarizes the most significant pre-modern commentaries, adding clarity and insight in an accessible but rigorous way. He is both scholar and committed yogi on the path. We are honored and delighted to be hosting him and we hope you will join us for this exceptional chance to dig deeper into yoga’s roots.

12 Continuing Ed credits available for Yoga Alliance-registered yoga teachers. 

 

About Edwin

Edwin Bryant received his Ph.D in Indic languages and Cultures from Columbia University. He taught Hinduism at Harvard University for three years, and is presently the professor of Hinduism at Rutgers University where he teaches courses on Hindu philosophy and religion. He has received numerous awards and fellowships, published six books and authored a number of articles on Vedic history, yoga, and the Krishna tradition. In addition to his academic work for the scholarly community, Edwin’s Penguin World Classics translation of the Srimad Bhagavata Purana, the traditional source for the story of Krishna’s incarnation, is both for Indology specialists as well as students and those interested in Hinduism from the general reading public and the yoga community.

As a personal practitioner of yoga for 35 years, a number of them spent in India studying with traditional teachers, where he returns yearly, Edwin strives to combine academic scholarship and rigor with sensitivity towards traditional knowledge systems. In addition to his academic course load, Edwin currently teaches workshops on the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, and Hindu Philosophy at yoga studios and teacher training courses throughout the country. His translation of and commentary on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (North Point Press, a division of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2009) is specifically dedicated to contributing to the growing body of literature on yoga by providing insights from the major pre-modern commentaries on the text with a view to grounding the teachings in their traditional context.

The Text
 
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with Notes from the Traditional Commentators. New York: Farrar Straus & Giroux in press 2008.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is the classical ancient Indian treatise on the practice of Yoga. While Yoga conjures up images of bodily postures and stretches in popular western culture, this aspect of yoga, the asanas, is only the third limb of the eight limbs outlined in the Yoga Sutras — and, indeed, Patanjali pays only passing attention to this aspect of the system. This seminar series will consist of a close reading of Patanjali’s original text, focusing on the opening section of the work, wherein Yoga is defined and the state of samadhi, liberation, described, as well as on the eight limbs of yoga covered in the heart of the text, which outline the step by step methods for attaining this enlightened state. Attention will be paid to the pre-modern commentaries of the text, thus exposing students to the traditional understanding of the practice of classical Yoga and its goals. Students are advised to bring any copy of the Sutras which has the Sanskrit text in romanized script as attention will be focused on the original source rather than its westernized manifestation.
