Manasa Essential Triadic 3-Day Workshop FEB 24, 25 & 26

Starting March 2017, classes at Manasa will be themed differently. Manasa yogis are highly encouraged to join the upcoming 3-Day Essential Triadic Workshop, to familiarized with the new class themes, intentions and directions so that WE can all move together towards greater growth, on and off the mat.

DAY 1: MANASA PULSATIONS
7-930PM FRIDAY FEB 24
https://www.facebook.com/events/1845437412391442/

DAY 2: MANASA FLEXIBILITY
2-430PM SATURDAY FEB 25
https://www.facebook.com/events/388828591492788/

DAY 3: MANASA STRENGTH & STABILITY
2-430PM SUNDAY FEB 26
https://www.facebook.com/events/1750774271906109/

 

At this workshop, we will dedicate some time to simplify, clarify and quantify the complexities of yoga strength, flexibility and mobility training while concurrently providing a clear philosophical context as well as pranayama for accessing auspicious states of mind. Please make time to attend the three day core workshop in Feb (24, 25 and 26) as that lays down the essentials of the classes to follow.

Classes starting this March would specialize on the following

  •         Handstand and straight arm strength
  •         Core
  •         Bent arm strength
  •         Leg strength
  •         Flexibility
  •         Drop backs
  •         Rope pull strength and skill

 

Each category of mat practice would have a pranayama and philosophy aligned with it. This would mean Manasa teachers have more work to do. Other than the atha 16, tanu 7, kcc and cobra, now each specific mat skill has a specific pranayama and philosophy to be taught in the same class. With all this, we hope to serve you all better, and to take our yoga levels higher and higher.

With the new class themes, we will also be introducing a new fee scheme starting March 2017.
