HANDSTAND TRAINING FOR ALL LEVELS
Sunday, August 25, 2019
2-4pm
Lighthouse Yoga School (map)

Developing a handstand takes strength, balance, flexibility, focus, and patience — the components of any worthwhile physical practice. But nearly anyone with a childlike sense of play and curiosity can achieve it!

Come to this 2-hour workshop to learn techniques and progressions to become more comfortable on your hands and upside down, both on and off the wall.

ALL LEVELS WELCOME — Beginners will be given steps to safely overcome the fear of inverting. Those with an existing handstand practice will be given tools to hone their “line,” aesthetics, and endurance.

ROCKET YOGA: ASHTANGA-INSPIRED MASTERCLASS
Monday, September 16, 2019
6:30 – 8pm
Pure Yoga West (map)

Explore a playful, energizing, and accessible take on Ashtanga yoga, known simply as The Rocket.

Rocket Yoga honors the foundations of classic Ashtanga through its emphasis on Tristhana — the three-pronged focus of breath, gaze, and posture. By breaking free of dogmatic sequencing, though, the Rocket allows room for creativity and variation, challenge and play, self-exploration and progress.

Yoga East Austin (map)

Friday 6-7:30pm
HATHA VINYASA MASTERCLASS
In this class, we will purify the nervous system with pranayama, energize the body with sun salutations, get grounded and focused with standing balancing postures, and find full range of motion through the spinal column with floor forward folds, backbends, and twists. This class is designed to carry you through the full range of physical and subtle experience — from the dynamic, fun, and challenging opening sequence through the meditative, inward, and revelatory wind-down.

Saturday 10-11:30am
HATHA VINYASA MASTERCLASS

Saturday 12:30-2:30pm
[WORKSHOP] GRATITUDE PRACTICE
This workshop will begin with an asana and pranayama sequence designed to open the body and, in particular, the heart and lungs — the gatekeepers of our emotions. Then we will move our attention inward through guided meditation and contemplation. Questions will be presented to orient us toward acknowledgement and appreciation of our blessings. You will leave this practice feeling grounded, at peace, and grateful for everything you have.

Sunday 9:30-10:30am
MANTRA + PRANAYAMA
In this one-hour class, you will be introduced to a several practical methods for shifting
your energetic vibration toward grounding, protection, and abundance. There are no
asanas in this class. Learn practices you can use any time anywhere to tap into your inner stillness and peace.

Sunday 11:30am-1:30pm
[WORKSHOP] LOCKS + KEYS TO ARM BALANCING AND FLOATING
Arm balances and inversions teach us to hone our focus and cultivate our deep inner
strength… But strength can be deceiving. Balancing upside-down does not necessarily
require chiseled arms or a swollen chest. Rather, the first step to finding stability and
lightness in your yoga poses is learning how to manipulate the flow of energy throughout
your body.
In this workshop, we will locate and fine tune our awareness of the key bandhas (energetic locks) through meditation and practical exercises. Then, we will put them to use in a series
of challenging yet playful arm balances and transitions. You will walk away with tools to
achieve sustainable depth and stability in your practice and a knowledge of the gateways to levity.
