Join us for a monthly deep dive into exploring different crucial areas of the body and the anatomical actions and basic foundational poses that utilize these parts. The format will be “workshop style” with beginner anatomy and discussion of modifications for common problems. We will focus on observing our own anatomy and patterns as a launching point for increased awareness and improvement in our practice. There will be time for discussion and Q&A so bring your questions! This class will be in person and online and a recording will be available for two weeks after the class.

Moving Toward 'Point Zero'
Weekend with Greg Anton
POSTPONED...Stay tuned for new dates!
Balancing Vertical Extension and Horizontal Expansion.
B.K.S. Iyengar writes in his commentary of sutra III.14 that "in asana, if the energy of the body is harmonized to a 'point zero' whilst in a state of tension, we reach precision." In this workshop you will explore ways of working with the body, breath, and consciousness in asana and pranayama to find that precision.
Greg Anton, a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, has been practicing and teaching for more than twenty-five years. His practice along with his keen memory and precise instruction allow him to present asana in an extremely methodical and clear way and to weave the philosophy of Yoga through the fabric of the body. Greg served as president of the Iyengar Yoga Association of New England from 2009-2012. He lives in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Developing Daily Sadhana
“Sadhana” is the Sanskrit word for practice but it implies much more than just showing up on your mat. In these challenging times how do we learn to practice at home? How do we stay connected to ourselves and eachother? In this series we will focus on how to develop a home practice, how to tailor a sequence to fit your daily needs, and the major groups of poses and their benefits. Each meeting we will have time to practice, ask questions, and reflect on our progress. Weekly reading and journaling assignments will help you practice independently creating your own deeper sense of sadhana. A perfect way to commit yourself to your practice!
