Fine tune your ability to listen when your body is speaking.
An added benefit to a regular yoga practice is having a better sense of body awareness. Enhance your relationship with YOU by acquiring basic anatomy information and by learning how it applies to your yoga practice. Untangle some anatomy lingo and take a closer look at a few key components of the body, like: shoulders, spine, and hips, which are all key hubs for our yoga asana, or postural practice. Finally experience what we’ve learned through movement. Feel free to come with some questions.

Testimonial: My back surgery years ago only reduced the frequency of my sciatic pain. At the recommendation of my physical therapist, I decided to give YOGA a chance. My Facebook friends suggested Ami and they were right. I had some serious doubts about this, but I was proven wrong. Ami‘s straightforward approach to daily stretching for only 15 minutes not only stopped my pain, but also gives me extra energy.
Hey loyal ashtangis, have you heard the big news? We’re taking our program to the next level! You guys are so amazing, bringing the Bhakti (aka devotion) and sweat and laughter, and spreading the word so well, that we’re going full-on with Ashtanga in Kingston. Starting July 8th, we will have Mysore 5 days, Monday through Friday (taught by yours truly, Laura Olson) and one Led Primary class on Sundays (to keep you honest with the breathing and counting and navasana, everyone’s favorite—taught by the lovely Jacquelyn Nash), but will observe the new and full moons as holidays from Mysore style practice, in accordance with tradition. Want a discussion of moon days? Coming soon!
Meanwhile, Jacquelyn and I can’t wait to get going. We’ve been so excited to watch the program grow, and this just seemed like a natural evolution. We hope you’re excited too!
I also feel a little like I am jumping into the deep end with both feet. Ever feel that way? A little excited, a little scared (wait, is that a quote from Into the Woods? Everything is a musical to me). I remember when I first started practicing 6 days a week and really organizing my life and habits around the yoga, the ashtanga, the path. It felt momentous. And I also had some nerves. It felt so unknown. I feel a little this way now, too. Sharing the tradition in this community is undeniably wonderful and right. A perfect fit. But also, a big step! And so, in case you too feel this way, I share what my teacher shared with me at that time. Yes, you will have to change, you will have to give some things up. But they won’t be what you think! And it won’t be hard. It will be natural, automatic, like a blossoming and surrender. It isn’t a forced thing like will power. It’s more like a beautiful calling. A longing fulfilled.
I think I’ve said this before, but one of the beautiful things about creating community is that we are all in it together. I am here to lift you up (literally sometimes!) and you are there giving energy back to me. And each day is just a new chance to tune in and notice where you are in each moment. Each practice is a practice, not a performance. There’s no grade at the end!
So all you have to do is show up. Get on your mat. Make it happen. Whatever “it” is that day.
I think the cocoon of Ashtanga in Kingston is about to explode into a brilliant butterfly. Or maybe a flock of them. I can’t wait to see us all take flight.
