Ashtanga Yoga with Mara Healy

Starting Wednesday 9/6, Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays 6:00-8:00am

Location: Be Yoga Carmel

Sign Up Now!

Ashtanga is the original power yoga. It is a systematic sequence of predetermined flowing postures linked together with the breath, but without music. If you like a strong power yoga or vinyasa class then you should find this challenging and rewarding. Ashtanga practice comprises four main parts:

•an “opening sequence,”
•one of the six main “series”
•a back-bending sequence
•set of inverted asanas, referred to as the “finishing sequence.”
•Practice always ends with savasana

Additionally, this is offered in the mysore style, meaning, each person practices at their own pace and is responsible for memorizing the sequence as it is given to them in small segments. The instructor teaches and guides each student individually and tailors adjustments to each student’s unique needs.

Tantra Vinyasa Masterclass with Grace Millsap

Friday 9/29 7:00-8:30pm

Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

Tantra is an ancient practice that weaves mantra, meditation, mudra, pranayama, and asana into one practice, intentionally sequenced to refine and strengthen prana, or our lifeforce. These tools allow us to peel back the layers and discover our true, and more authentic selves. We will harness the natural, slower rhythm of the evening as a way to slow down, release, and let go. Students should expect a moderate asana practice, followed by floor work with longer holds, and end with an extended savasana and meditation.

Investment: $16 or a class from your class pass

Each participant will receive a quartz crystal point to take home with them and will receive instructions on how to continue to receive blessings from the divine for 30 days via a stone essence you can create easily at home. The live sound journey will serve to cement these energies into our minds, bodies and souls as we begin to resonate at the frequencies of various instruments including voice, flute, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, drums and so much more. Ceremonies like these can help us transcend things we have been living with for years, releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and pain.
