Ashtanga yoga, as taught to Sri K.
Pattabhi Jois by his teacher, and as he passes down to us is a set
system of poses linked by movement and breath. Power Yoga is said to be
based on it, and while both are physically demanding, Ashtanga in it's
true form is hugely different. Ashtanga has a scientific design, which
is malleable to include those of all physical abilities, and that is
structured to help the practitioner not only achieve fitness and health
of the body, but stillness and well being of the mind. In this
workshop, safety of the body and stillness of the mind will be used as a
means of attaining the poses, and considered of higher importance.
of yoga began with a foundation of pranayama and meditation under Alan
Finger and began teaching under his guidance soon after. She then
studied Iyengar with Lisa Walford, Steve Friedman, and Aadil Palkihivala.
Her own teaching came to include flow yoga with focus on form and joy.
In 1995 Dena Kingsburg introduced her to the Ashtanga practice and Nancy
has dedicated her studies in this direction ever since, studying with,
Pattabhi Jois, at every opportunity. She has also been deeply influenced
by Shari Friedrichson, of the Himalayan Institute who encourages an
internal path of cleansing pain to allow freedom of the true self.
Interest in, The Bhagavad Gita, has been a natural continuance. It
guides the journey to self while navigating a path in this world. Nancy
uses a gentle, if exacting, emphasis on physical adjustments, and
encouragement of self-doing to help her students find their
intelligence, strength, abundance, and joy.
