Detail Daily Class Schedule
These classes may be taken individually or you may use your class card:
- Ashtanga Foundations : Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. Our weekly entry level class explores foundational techniques. Foundations classes also serve as a space for seasoned practitioners to refine their movement and mindfulness technique in between full primary and second series practices.
- Ashtanga Primary Series or Intermediate Series : Sundays at 10:00 a.m. This class is open to all practitioners at Atlanta Yoga. We will work through the asanas of the primary or intermediate series in a steady flow interweaving technique.
- Ashtanga Integrated Practice : Mondays and Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. This class is open to all practitioners at Atlanta Yoga. This class is a detailed exploration of select asanas of the Ashtanga Primary, Second, and Third series. Primary series is known as Yoga Chikitsa and is designed to remove obstructions from the body and mind. Second series is know as Nadi Shodhana and is more concerned with the alignment of the nervous system and subtle energy flows of the body. Third series brings the two together and challenges the practitioner to elongate the frame. Once a practitioner has settled into a disciplined practice it can be very helpful to begin to integrate the asanas of these three sequences. In this class we will begin to explore the integration of these three series of asanas in several alternative sequences.
Series Course Offerings:
These are 6 week courses. The material is presented in a sequential manner to maximize learning. Groups are kept small to allow us to pay attention to the particulars of each participant, track progress and help direct each participant’s practice as it develops. Pre-registration is required for all series courses!
