This class, taught by Terry Brown, is for teachers and students of yoga that wish to take their practices and studies of yoga to new dimensions. The requirements are a desire for personal growth and transformation. This class offers the next step. West Market Street Studio.

Topics presented will include general sequences that can be practiced at home or on the Yoga Wall, as well as how to sequentially prepare the body for the more challenging postures, therapeutic sequences, pranayama practices, and meditations.

October 29th - Goal Pose:  Kapotasana (Pigeon Pose)

Some backbends don't come easy!  Start in Supta Virasana.  Push up onto your palms.  Arch the entire back.  Then rest the elbows on the floor and hold your feet.  With skilled sequencing and use of props, the smart approach to this challenging backbend will help you practice pain-free and experience an exhilarating and liberating practice.  Level 2 and above.

November 6th - The Purna Yoga Shoulder Series

This sequence come straight to us from Aadil Palkhivala at Yoga Centers, in Bellevue, WA.  There are 2 practices.  One that can be done on your own at home.  And, the other is for teachers to work with their students.  All Levels. 

November 12th - The Long, Deep Stretch Class

To release the tension in the muscles and connective tissue, the most successful stretches are held for 3-5 minutes.  Connective tissue doesn't respond to brief stretches.  This tissue is tough and fibrous and requires discipline, patience and attention to the breath to create change.  The muscles must relax or the connective tissue won't be able to release.  If we neglect this important fact, then the connective tissue will shrink and our joints will become less mobile as we mature.  Another benefit of this practice will be the release of deep layers of stress and tension!   All levels.

November 19th - Goal Pose - Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana (Two Legged Inverted Staff Pose)

Considered one of the best backbends in Yoga, this pose opens the chest, hips and shoulders.  The whole spine is invigorated and strengthened.  This dynamic backbend will lead to sthira sukha ("steady comfort," Patanjali's definition of asana), a state in which the fluctuations of the mind have stilled and one finds a state of immense clarity that shines forth from within.  Participants should be able to push up into Urdhva Dhanurasana.

November 26th - Deep Relaxation

In order to relax completely, we have to peel away layers of stress and open up in places in the body that hold tension.  As we relax, we are able to access the deep level of the subconscious mind and consciously affect a positive change, create healing, and reverse negative conditioning.  We can use this state to release unwanted damaging, distracting, and disturbing thought patterns.  All Levels.
