In this weekend intensive, we explore the simple but potent techniques that bring the Ashtanga practice alive – tracing internal currents of breath, balancing subtle patterns of sensation, moving our bodies from the inside, and giving space for the creative forces to flow. These techniques allow us to bring consciousness deep into the body, where we can engage ourselves, shadows and all, with kindness and clarity.

Ty Landrum Saturday Schedule

8am – 2pm

 

Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Practice

This is a Mysore-style asana class. We practice together, mostly in silence, following the natural cadence of our own breath. This is not a guided class, so you must know your own sequencing to attend. Ashtanga Vinyasa will be the predominant style, but other Vinyasa-Krama styles are welcome. This is an opportunity for individual attention and support.

Standing Postures

Standing postures have a secret life, a secret inwardness, a secret drama that is easy to miss. They can seem simple and accessible when we first learn them, but as we feel into them with closer attention, they start to reveal an unfathomable depth. Each standing posture is a unique stage for the dynamic interplay of prana and apana, and when we learn to direct those subtle forces into one another, using the structure of the postural form, their drama begins to unfold. In this session, we learn to balance prana and apana within the standing postures of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system.

Spinal Waves

As the apanic force is lifted from the pelvis to the heart, the pranic force expands into its natural fullness, and this movement creates a distinctive undulating pattern through the spine. In this session, we learn to follow that pattern through asanas of all kinds, including standing postures, folds, twists, and backbends. By working with this pattern, we imbue our asana practices with greater depth and vibrancy. This session will involve some light and accessible asana practice, together with subtle body visualization.

Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Practice

This is a Mysore-style asana class. We practice together, mostly in silence, following the natural cadence of our own breath. This is not a guided class, so you must know your own sequencing to attend. Ashtanga Vinyasa will be the predominant style, but other Vinyasa-Krama styles are welcome. This is an opportunity for individual attention and support.

Backbending, Twists & Folds

The practice of backbending is about making ourselves vulnerable, while finding the internal support to handle that vulnerability with elegance and grace. When we connect to internal support, backbending becomes an exhilarating experience, and one that encourages deep psychical release. In this session, we learn to work intelligently with the diaphragm, the psoas, the pelvic girdle and the obliques to create a long and supple spine that can reach gracefully into these difficult forms. This session is open to practitioners of all levels.

Mula Bandha Practice & Philosophy

Some say that mula bandha is the toning of the pelvic floor. Others say that mula bandha is the experience of non-duality. Still others say that mula bandha is the awakening of the feminine sublime. What do these disparate things have in common? This workshop aims to clarify. Observing the subtle breath within our bodies, we discover a thread of sensation that reaches from the pelvic floor to the soft palate, a thread that connects us to the primitive source of our vitality. By awakening our appreciation for where that thread leads, we invite some of the finer experiences of yoga to arise. This session will involve some light and accessible asana practice, together with subtle body visualization.
