summer immersion w/ Stacy Ingham & shelley enlow

JULY 18 - JULY 21

We are excited to bring to you our first Summer Immersion guided by the collaboration of Stacy Ingham, the director of Ashtanga Yoga School Raleigh, and our director of Ashtanga Yoga School Spokane, Shelley Enlow.

This four-day mini-immersion is a chance to step away from your busy life and go deep into your yoga practice! For the first three days our mornings will begin with a Mysore class devoted to explore your personal practice followed by a period of guided pranayama, meditation, and reflection.  After a 90-minute break, the day will continue with a 3-hour afternoon clinic. These clinics are themed around the Ashtanga Primary Series. We will divide the series into categories so we can playfully explore alignment and technique of the postures to better understand how the practice works.  On our last day we will consolidate the themes with a 3-hour led practice, exploring the complete Primary Series. During this session we will encourage you to focus on breath, precision and awareness. We will have an informal gathering on the afternoon of Sunday, July 21 to celebrate our time together.

This immersion is for anyone interested in a deeper investigation of Ashtanga yoga. Everyone is welcome! We will work with you on where your practice is no matter what your experience. The only pre-requisite is an open mind and a willingness to try something new!

ABOUT COMMUNITY TALKS

These one-hour talks are a wonderful way to support your personal yoga practice by helping you stay connected, motivated, and inspired.  We welcome all yoga practitioners from all schools of yoga as well as anyone interested in learning about yoga.  Community talks are designed around yoga theory to provide a deeper layer to the teachings of yoga.  They are meant to be interactive beginning with call and response to select chants, progressing into the topic of the day, and finishing with a Q&A session.  Questions are encouraged; this could be about a specific posture, bandhas, working with injuries, questions about the system, basically questions you have about your practice.  


betsy’s 60th birthday celebration 

Sunday, august 4 @ 10am

I know, it is impossible to believe but our beautiful Betsy is turning 60! I LOVE this picture of her teaching - look at her radiant smile! When you walk into a class with Betsy in it - whether she is teaching or practicing - your day is a better day just because you’ve got a moment to be in her presence. Her husband always says, “Everyone needs a Betsy!” and it’s true, everyone does! Betsy reaches out to people in the most loving and warm ways. She is the ultimate giver of happiness and will literally give you the shirt off her back if you need her help. Teacher, team player, mentor, bad-ass yogi, grandmother, mother, daughter, sister, wife, friend, human be-ing, dear soul, AND an amazing dancer too!

Join us as we celebrate the 60th year of Miss Betsy! We will have refreshments and everyone will get a chance to “toast” our girl! The celebration starts at 10am after Mysore class. Feel free to stay after your practice OR just show up at 10am to CELEBRATE BETSY!
