The 5 workshops will breakdown and explore the traditional sequence of ashtanga practice in a progressive format:
Session I Surya Namaskara (sun salutations)
Session II Standing sequence
Session III Seated asana and the vinyasa
Session IV Seated asana and backbending
Session V Closing sequence and inversions
This is an excellent opportunity to review previously studied topics and receive contuning education credits. For those students interested in participating in next year’s training intensive, these sessions dive deeper into the practice and prepare participants for a serious study of the practice.
Students may choose to participate in one or more of the workshop sessions. Each session will touch on a traditional aspect of the teachings alongside the asana exploration. These parallel explorations will include Sanskrit, Yogic Philosophy, Anatomy, Meditation and more.

Saturday Morning Topic
Detox for Mind and Body: The Cleansing effects of Tristana (Breath, Bandhas, and Drishti). Using the yoga tools of breath, bandhas, and drishti, we learn to fine-tune our attention and tap into our inner world.
Saturday Afternoon Topic
The Yoga Sutra: Decoding the Yoga Philosophy
Join Beryl and the sanga (community) for a lively and enthusiastic exploration of this classic text. Far from boring, this is the way to study the sutras, with an inquisitive group of like-minded practitioners seeking the answer to “Who am I?”
It has been a great gift to have Beryl come and visit us each year at the shala. Beryl’s workshops are informed and inspired by the traditional teachings of Yoga, yet her message is applicable and timely for the contemporary practitioner. Whether you have attended all of her workshops, or this is your first one, you are sure to come away motivated to incorporate the teachings into your daily practice…on and off of your mat. Register early, as this workshop will sell out!
All students are welcome. You may attend the entire workshop or each session
