Mat Time with Kim Lomonaco
August 31, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$25.00
Redefine your time on the mat.
For dedicated students or yoga teachers who want to deepen their practice by working on intermediate to advanced postures but are not sure where to begin. This extended group practice will provide a community of yoga enthusiasts to inspire you and urge you onward into more challenging postures.
Practicing alongside you in a heated room, Kim will provide supportive instruction on optimizing alignment in order to access or go further in the poses presented; variations and preparations for deeper poses will also be provided. Adequate time will be taken to “try out” new or difficult poses. Sharing your own unique experience with and approaches to postures will be encouraged. Silent, seated meditation will be built into the end of class following a long savasana.
A high level of self-awareness on the part of the student is required, as not all poses will be appropriate for all participants. It is strongly recommended that participants be able to get into handstand at a wall independently and be able to push into and sustain urdhva dhanurasana (upward bow) for a reasonable about of time.
Printouts of the practice sequence and variations will be provided. It is strongly recommended that participants own a copy of Light on Yoga by B.K.S. Iyengar.
This class is inspired by Christina Sell’s “Asana Junkies” webinar, available at her website.
