Transitions - Ashtanga Workshop


This class is taught by:

Dean Hollingsworth

Dean Hollingsworth found yoga in 2007 and immediately felt the impact it had upon his physical, mental and spiritual life. As his practice continues to deepen, his life continues to bloom and as a result he seeks to share this experience with others. He earned his 200hr RYT certification in 2012. A “chance encounter” then led him to meet and learn the Ashtanga method from Jeff Clardy, for which he is forever grateful. In an effort to further deepen his practice, Dean traveled to Mysore, India in October of 2014, and again in November 2015, where he studied Ashtanga Vinyasa in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois with Sharath Jois.
 

On his trip to Mysore in November of 2016, Sharath officially Authorized Dean to teach Ashtanga Yoga.

 

Dean is the only Authorized teacher in the DFW Metroplex and one of 4 in the state of Texas.

 

He is passionate about sharing the teachings of his personal practice and all that he has learned with the DYC Ashtanga community.

$35 by March 15 / $45 After

All too often the focus in our yoga practice is centered around the asana with less attention being given to how you enter and exit the pose. These transitions synced with breath, or vinyasas, can seem impossible when we don't put a regular emphasis on them. This workshop will shine a light into these corners and provide insight on how to build strength to begin to transition more smoothly in your practice.

The specific transitions we'll be working on will be...

•picking up and jumping back from a seated position
•jumping back into a seated position from downward dog
•lifting up after Utkatasana
•lifting up after Virabhrasana
•jumping into the arm balances of Bhujapidasana, Kurmasana & Bakasana
•lifting out of Bhujapidasana and Supta Kurmasana and into Bakasana position
•Chakrasana
