Asthanga Immersion with Christine Hoar / East Longmeadow, MA

The day will begin with a led Primary Series practice. The Primary Series (yoga chikitsa) serves as the very foundation for our physical practice, our sadhana. This Ashtanga system is an intelligently designed sequence of postures that offers each of us the opportunity to detoxify, purify, and strengthen the body. The Primary Series in particular aims to create neuromuscular alignment and strength and to begin to cleanse the organs. This guided class is an opportunity to deepen your practice and learn the correct vinyasa (breath-movement) system specific to the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. Students will be guided with posture names and vinyasa counts, accompanied by helpful alignment tips and explanations. This class is appropriate for all students wanting to improve and grow in their Ashtanga Yoga practice.

Short break for lunch, followed by:

Why We Do Yoga – The Four Aims of Life
The four aims of life that are referred to in both Ayurveda and Yoga texts are dharma (duties, moral obligations), artha (wealth, means to pursue dharma), kaama (love and relationships) and moksha (liberation, freedom, self-realization). These are called the Purusharthas and are closely connected to the four Ashramas, the four stages of life. In this class, we will explore how we address each of these aims in order to live a full, joyful and meaningful life.

Primary Series Adjustment Clinic  with Nancy Gilgoff & Christine Hoar

Montauk, NY

Tuition: $700 

Hone your ability to see, feel, touch and verbalize in your teaching. You will begin to learn the principles of hands-on adjusting, of working therapeutically, and of sensing energy movement and blockage in the body. The primary series of the Ashtanga Yoga system will serve as the basis for asana work. This is a unique opportunity to study with Nancy Gilgoff. All participants should be practicing the full primary series regularly. In the morning, there will be a Mysore practice. In the afternoon, we will focus on hands-on adjustments for the primary series.

Nancy Gilgoff is one of the pioneers of Ashtanga Yoga in the West. She was the first western woman to practice with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and helped bring Ashtanga Yoga to the USA–she began practicing with Guruji in Mysore, India over 40 years ago. As result of their long and close association, Nancy is able to teach with a style and touch that comes directly from Guruji. When Nancy asked Guruji how she should teach, he told her to “teach the way, I taught you”—advice which she took to heart and continues to follow today. Nancy resides on Maui and spends much of her time touring the US, Europe, and Asia, teaching with a view to fostering loving-kindness and to sharing her love and experience of yoga.

Christine Hoar is the founder of Bristol Yoga, VT and Ashtanga Montauk, NY. She is also a direct student of Guruji and and has over 20 years of practice and teaching experience. Christine is also an Ayurvedic Practitioner and integrates the wisdom of Ayurveda with her teachings of Yoga in an effort to help students achieve greater joy, vitality and transformation in their own lives.
