With David Berson
Saturday, June 26
2:00 – 4:00 PM
When in Pune, studying at RIMYI there is the expectation of attending class but another
important part of studying there is the morning practice. Students and teachers gather in the
practice hall, each person working on their own asanas. There is something special about
practicing together, even when everyone is working individually, that connects us to each other
and connects us to our lineage. High on the walls are the photos of BKS Iyengar that appear in
Light on Yoga. When practicing there, one can’t help but feel the energy of the space—touched
by the many people who have traveled to immerse themselves in study.
Open Practice at Jewel Yoga is an opportunity for us to be together in the physical space that
has been a support for our practice. You may arrive at any time and make full use of the props
and the space.
Tonya or David will be present if you have questions or want practice suggestions.
Quiet, Cool, & Calm
5 Wednesdays: May 05, and 19, June 2, 16, and 30
7:30 – 8:30 pm
$75 for the series, $20 single class
This one-hour restorative class will use supported asanas to release the physical and mental tension from the day while building a deeper awareness of the body and breath. Using support can allow for a quieter way of working that relies on the movement of the breath. These asanas will help cool the body and brain bringing a peacefulness that will promote a good night’s sleep. Open to all levels. Blankets, blocks, a belt and a bolster will all be useful, but students are encouraged to utilize common household items as substitutes.
