The Art of Vinyasa Krama w/ Kevin Dougall

In this workshop, students will be guided through the traditional practice of vinyasa krama, and how it can be applied to enrich our lives. Students will learn the history and principals of vinyasa krama, which will be followed by a complete vinyasa (posture sequence) and pranayama (breathing control) practice. Students will also get an opportunity to learn and chant the Shanti peace mantra and a few important Yoga Sutras (an ancient text that is honoured and studied by many yogis). We will learn how these sutras can be applied to our practice on the mat and in our modern lives.

Learn to Fly w/ Leslie Bishop

Join Yoga Teacher and Relationship Coach Leslie Bishop for a 3 hour partner yoga movement workshop. This is a chance to explore connection, support and trust through partner poses that will nourish both your practice and your heart. The primary component that differentiates a partner practice from individual practice is touch. We will use traction and leverage, and the kinaesthetic awareness that come from touch to open to greater depths in our bodies and our psyches. Partner yoga holds the philosophy of using relationship as a tool for awakening to our true nature. Come with someone or alone. No yoga experience necessary.

When: Saturday March 25th, 2pm-5pm
Where: Dartmouth
Cost: $35
