Virtual Teen Summer camp
July 6 - July 29, 2020
Mon-Wed 11am -1pm
Summer Camp will focus on the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, which is a kind of yoga therapy called Chikitsa that purifies and heals the body. This is open to all levels, from absolute beginners to more experienced students.
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga is a flow of sequenced postures linked together through breathing, alignment, gaze, and internal locks. It is an energy generating practice that cultivates a meditative experience and a natural self-practice. There is a set routine of postures that are done in the same order every class. The purpose of vinyasa is for internal cleansing.
Eventually this becomes a moving meditation as you synchronize your movements with your breath and develop a deep internal focus.
Mysore is the traditional way of learning Ashtanga yoga. The class is not led, and a sequence of postures is learned, one by one, from the teacher. The teacher will give instruction on an individual basis. It is thus a personal practice in a group setting. Summer Camp will begin as a Led Series but will transform into the Mysore style as students start to progress and will need individual attention. It is named after a city in India called Mysore where Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the guru of Ashtanga Yoga, lived and taught. The system is now passed down by Jois’ son, Manju Jois, at the SKPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute. Gulia Huertas has been studying under Manju Jois since 2008 and in 2020 will help lead the youth in a virtual revolution into BLISS.
Tuition $240 (deadline for scholarship - June 30th)
