Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a methodical yoga practice founded on the study of breath, bandha (energetic movement + retention within the body), and drishti (focused gaze).

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is taught in several series (each with their own fixed set of poses + breath counts), and in the traditional Mysore style, each student works at their own pace under the tutelage of a watchful teacher. 

The first of these sets of poses is known as Primary Series, consisting of sun salutations, standing poses, seated poses, inversions, and savasana (deep rest). When only half of the standing and seated poses are practiced, one is practicing a Half-Primary.

Join Brenna Lilly, RYT-500, for her Ashtanga Half-Primary Workshop + Fundraiser. She’ll introduce us to the opening and closing chants of Ashtanga Yoga, offer philosophical context, and lead us through a fast-paced yet modifiable physical practice.

This fundraiser will be in person and via zoom. Please pre-register here if you plan to attend in person as space is limited. If you are planning to attend via zoom, please make a $50 donation (or more if you wish) prior to the event via our PayPal button at the bottom of our homepage and you will be emailed all workshop documents.

ALL PROCEEDS go to our Nourish UNITY Teacher Training Fund, intended to promote equity in the yoga field for Black people, Indigenous people, and other People of Color, as well as differently abled bodies and non-binary persons.
