7-8.30PM: This evening class will be a guided Primary series class. The class will offer and in-depth look at the postures from the Primary Series with technical explanations of drishti, breath and how to enter and exit each asana properly.


7.30-9.30AM: Will begin with a Mysore style self-practice in the morning. This is the traditional way of practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as it allows students to move at their own pace. Ajay will be able to individually assist, adjust and guide students in their practice.

2-4PM: The last session of the day is workshop dedicated to opening the hips. The hips form the foundation of many asanas and are a problem area for many students. Here we will look at exercises that can open and strengthen this part of the body so that students will be able to access them more effectively in their practice.
