In Ashtanga Yoga there is a holy trinity that supports the internal experience. Sri K Pattabhi Jois taught me that the trinity is comprised of Ujayyi breathing, the Drishtis and the Bandhas. When practiced together they create an environment that is supportive for deep meditative expression through the physical asana practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Uyajji pranayama means "victorious breathing"and this class will teach you not only how to do it, but will share tools to help you move deeper into the breath and stay with it longer. The Bandhas are incredible in containing and sustaining energy . Using Virasana we will explore the bandhas from a unique perspective. The third aspect of Ashtanga is Drishti which literally means to see. The drishtis help you focus and be less distracted in the practice. This will be an educational class with opportunities for questions and create healthy dialogue about Ashtanga Yoga.
Class time devoted to lecture: 31-45 minutes
