Need a new favorite coffee or tea mug? Purchase one or several and help raise money for Project Amal ou Salam, meaning Project Hope and Peace, is grassroots organization dedicated to empowering Syria’s children to rebuild their country and work for peace. The cost of the mugs is 30$. I will take 5$ of every purchased mug to cover the cost of firing and donate the other 25$ Project Amal ou Salam.
Join us after practice this Sunday, 8/ 30, from 9:45-10:15 for some meditation, chanting and a closer look at the opening invocation of Ashtanga yoga.
The two verses of the chant come from different sources. The first verse is the opening benedictory verse of a 29-verse poem called the "Yoga Taravalli" written by Adi Sankara, and is said to be one of Krishnamacharya’s favorites. The second verse is part of the Patanjali Invocation, which is often chanted before chanting the Yoga Sutras.
This workshop will emphasize individual one-on-one instruction in the Ashtanga Method. Maty Ezraty is known for her unique approach to Mysore classes that combines her decades of study in both the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. Attentive to the correct alignment of every pose, she works to help each student find their way with the practice. She uses props when needed to facilitate greater understanding and is skilled in helping practitioners with common injuries. Practice will be limited to 25 students to assure individual attention.
