June Featured Event: Advanced Yoga for Everyone with Mark Whitwell
International yoga teacher, Mark Whitwell, is coming to Austin June 22-24 for an in-depth series of lectures and yoga to help new and current practitioners deepen their practice. Whitwell has enjoyed a life-long relationship with the teachings of Professor T. Krishnamacharya "the teacher of the teachers," notably BKS Iyengar, K Pattabhi Jois, Srivatsa Ramaswami, Indra Devi, A G Mohan and TKV Desikachar. Having studied since 1973 in the home of Krishnamacharya with his son Desikachar, Mark is committed to communicating the timeless yoga principals with compassion and clarity.
Both beginner and experienced practitioners will learn how to take yoga's advanced practices and integrate and personalize them to fit their own bodies' needs. The event kicks off on Friday, June 22nd with a free lecture, The Principles of Yoga according to Krishnamacharya, from 7-9 pm. While respecting the popular styles and each person's background, Whitwell will show how the ancient yoga technology brought forth by Krishnamacharya can serve the practice you already know and love. He will explain how to include the principles of Krishnamacharya to make any style of practice entirely your own - efficient, powerful and safe.
Saturday, June 23rd will include an all day session Advancing Your Yoga 10:30 am - 5:30 pm, and will cover adapting yoga to individual needs and health issues, yours and your students. The price for the entire day is $125.
Sunday, June 24th will include two sessions. The first session entitled Asana, Pranayama, Meditation and Life from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm, will explore advanced asana and pranayama class open to everyone. (Advanced practices will always be adjusted to fit individual needs.) Asana supports pranayama, pranayama supports meditation, meditation supports life and all relatedness. Mark will clarify the principles of pranayama and bandha in your practice. The cost for this session is $65. During the second session entitled Yoga from the Heart...for the Heart from 2:30-5:30 pm, Whitwell will share how to weave the tools of yoga into personal and powerful systems of body breath and sex. He will define daily practice and discuss the purpose of yantra and mantra in asana and pranayama.
