Happy New Year 2019!
I am starting off the year with a 4-week Mysore-style class series in Crestone for February; Saturday, Sunday and Mondays (2/2-4, 2/9-11, 2/16-18 and 2/23-25) 9am-11am.  The cost for 12 classes is $95 and they will be held in my yoga studio in the Baca.
These classes are self-paced with adjustments and are suited for folks with some Ashtanga Yoga experience.  If you are brand new to Ashtanga Yoga and would like a guided introductory class, PM me and if there is enough interest I will host one at the beginning of the month so you can participate.

Bay Area Yogis and Yoga Teachers,
Join me for a fun-filled weekend Adjustment Clinic at Mysore Oakland on April 28th & 29th - 1 - 5pm each day.
Here's a little info...
This workshop will explore the fine art of hands-on adjusting and specific techniques for working safely and intelligently with students practicing yoga poses in a class or one-on-one setting. Technical inquiry will include working with and adjusting different body types, principles of anatomy, reviewing details of alignment and energy movement in the asanas.
Issues of respecting student privacy and vulnerability will be addressed as well as how to create a safe environment for growth and transformation.
Curriculum will be based on the Primary Series of Ashtanga but, will focus on core poses commonly practiced by many different yoga styles. We will cover Standing Poses and Forward Bends on Saturday and Seated/Supine Twists and Backward Bending Postures on Sunday. 
This workshop is offered as continuing education for yoga teachers (Yoga Alliance CE credits available) and to any students wishing to deepen their practice.
