Monday May 27th 6-7:15pm
Why does ashtanga have an opening and closing chant? What is the deal with chanting? Please bring any other questions you may have about the practice of Ashtanga Yoga.
The first half of this class will be dedicated to reviewing the opening and closing chant and practicing it. Students can participate as much or as little as they would like in chanting. The second half, time willing, will be dedicated to getting through a traditional Half Primary series. Handouts will be provided for the chants and for half primary.
Any of the questions that come up in class and seem juicy enough for review could potentially become another ashtanga 101 workshop in the future. :)
