The Yoga Shala (map)

You know the drill, January first rolls around and the New Year's resolutions follow and are almost immediately forgotten.  But not this year.  Join Krista Shirley on Saturday, January 20th for a New Year's Resolution Kickstarter workshop.  We'll begin the day with a warm and sweaty Mysore practice then sit down and learn the foundation of creating a daily yoga practice. Spend the afternoon with Krista learning tips and tools to help make that goal a reality.

 

Following a short break, we end with a discussion and conversation about nutrition and Yoga, what’s best to consume before and after practice, quick meals during the day, juicing and so much more. Spend the afternoon with Krista exploring what is ideal to put into our bodies before and after we step on the mat.

 

Turn those resolutions into reality.  Save your spot below!

2/10 Saturday 6:30am - 8:30am
Mysore:

 

“Mysore style” is traditionally practiced silently, with individual instruction, and is named after Mysore, India, where Ashtanga yoga originated and was taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois for many years. Anyone is welcome to come to this class. Students will work at their own pace, according to his or her individual needs, while Krista walks around the room providing hands on adjustments and verbal instruction as needed. If you do not have the primary series memorized, you will spend your first few weeks in class repeating bits of the standing sequence until it is committed to memory. At that point, you will come in daily, do your sun salutations, standing postures, seated postures and finishing postures on your own, under the guidance of your teacher. Mysore style is the absolute best way to learn and practice Yoga. It enables you to create a dedicated, daily practice that will take you infinitely deeper into the peace and calm a quiet mind and strong body can provide. Ashtanga Yoga, done daily, will increase flexibility, strength, endurance, and physical and mental balance; it will cleanse the internal systems of the body and provide a healthy source of focus and dedication in ones life – something everyone needs!

Ground it down, twist it out  with Krista Shirley

SatDate: 2/10/2018From: 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Ground it down, twist it out:

 

A phenomenal and eye opening session for all level of practitioner. Once we can truly root and stabilize the body we can take any twist infinitely deeper in asana practice. Spend the afternoon with Krista exploring how to better stabilize the body through the hands, feet and pelvis, which then allows us to tap into opposing forces as we ground down and lift and twist up and out. You will be truly amazed how much deeper you can take any of your twists once you can safely, steadily and strongly root your body and your mind.

2 hours.

Grace & Guts - May 19-20, 2018

 

 

When we look around the country during the seasonal changes from winter to spring, we see lessons that can be transferred to our own lives.  The seemingly finished trees and flowers create magic in their roots, push past the dirt, stretch out their limbs and continue to grow.  Join Krista in a weekend workshop inspired by the mirror the earth turns toward us and how we can bring that with us on the mat.  However, don’t be fooled by the flowery metaphors, you’ll be working hard - just like the flowers do.

 

Schedule:

 

 

Saturday 8am-10am - Mysore

10am - 12pm Meditation & Q&A

 

1pm-3pm Finding Strength & Stillness through Balance - Like A Tree

Spend the day exploring balancing asanas of

primary and second series. From Utthita Hasta Pādāṅguṣṭhāsana, Bakāsana, Ṭiṭṭibhāsana and

Pinca Mayūrāsana we will learn how to create stability in the body needed to acquire and

maintain balance in postures that challenge us to tap into inner and outer strength. Be prepared to break a sweat, have fun, and work hard in this session with Krista as we explore the postures

that teach us how to find and maintain balance both on and off the mat. Suitable for all levels. 2

 

 

Sunday 8am-10am - Mysore

10am-12pm

Ashtanga Strength Elements

From the gross to the suble, this is what Yoga is about. To do that we start with the physical body using asanas and movement to create a fit and strong body, which gives us the framework to cultivate a fit and strong mind. Ashtanga Yoga method is brilliant as it helps us cultivate physical strength while at the same time helping us evolve our mental and spiritual realm. The asanas themselves become more and more challenging as you work through the first and into the second and third series’. This workshop is designed to assist practitioners on the physical plane focused on fundamental techniques that will aid in building strength and a solid physical foundation that will assist the student in their Ashtanga asana practice, and their overall spiritual journey. Spend the day with Krista learning how to cultivate strength and steadiness of body and mind by exploring

alignment, isolated strength building exercises, meditation techniques, positive thinking, affirmations, and much more! Suitable for all levels. 2 hours

Saturday, July 21st spend the day with Krista learning to engage the "fun" yoga muscles.  We'll do handstands, arm balances, learn to jump through gracefully and much more.

 

 

Schedule:

 

8am-10am Mysore

 

10am-12pm - Lats: Psoas of The Upper Body:

In this session, you will learn about the true ‘core’ of the upper body and how to bring awareness to the lats during our asana practice. We will dissect simple anatomical mechanics of the lats and how use of the upper body’s ‘core’ will allow you to gain a deeper level of control over your body, breath, and bandhas. Join Krista in learning how to take your practice to a whole new level. Suitable for all levels.

 

1pm-3pm - Air Time : Handstand + Forearm Balance + Headstand Variations

Learning handstand, forearm balance and headstand takes time and a bit of strength. Learn how to safely learn and grow in handstands and forearm balances. Once you’ve warmed up and refined the basics, you’ll learn to transition more confidently and gracefully into a handstand, forearm balance, and headstand. You’ll go up with one leg, two legs and lay the foundation for “pressing” into these poses. If you’re stuck or scared of handstands and going upside down, Krista will help you build strength and confidence for these postures with a step-by-step approach that you can do on your own at the wall! Just in case things get ugly, you’ll learn how to safely fall out of these poses without hurting yourself or impaling your neighbor.

A Yoga A Workshop on Letting Go & Letting Light In

 

Schedule:

 

Saturday, October 6th

8am-10am - Mysore Practice

10am-12pm - Meditation and Journaling

12pm-1pm - Lunch Break

1pm-3pm- Deconstruction Before Reconstruction: Intended for students with a daily practice. We go through phases in our practice…In the beginning, it feels good, and we feel good for doing the practice. But as you get deeper into your practice the honeymoon phase ends as you start to uncover deep-seated physical and emotional blockages. These blockages must be dealt with in order for us to let go of that baggage we hold deep within our bodies and minds. This can be extremely uncomfortable both physically and mentally and this is often the point where people either choose to face themselves and dig deep, keep practicing but on a very surface level or walk away from yoga altogether. In this workshop, we will learn how to deal with the discomfort we face in our yoga asana practice. Muscles and bones and nerves, emotional scars and fears and hurts….They all come to the surface with daily asana practice. Join Krista in a discussion about deconstruction before reconstruction. Suitable for all levels.
