INTRODUCTION TO ASHTANGA SECOND SERIES with KATE STILLMAN: Sunday, August 7th in Ramsey

Date: 
Sun, 08/07/2016 - 2:30pm - 5:00pm

Curious about what comes after the Primary Series of Ashtanga? Come and explore the Second Series Ashtanga practice. Called Nadi Shodana or Nerve-Cleansing Second Series is designed to cleanse the energy channels or “nadis.” It offers more backbending, twisting, and hip-opening along with throwing in some arm-balances and inversions. Many of the poses will be familiar to regular vinyasa practitioners although some of the alignment and entrances may be different than what you’re used to. In this class we’ll break down the poses and the entrances. Modifications are always on offer so do not be intimidated, do what you can and know that the rest is coming. Some experience with Primary Series Ashtanga is recommended but not required and some experience with vinyasa classes is also recommended.

Registration: $30 per person early registration until 7/31/16; $35 per person day of.
