2020 3-Week Continuing Yoga Intensive with Richard Schachtel
Mar 3, 2020| $150 – $300
We have Now added a Continuing Level Intensive Course in March 2020 for those who have taken Either the January Or February 3-Week Intensive which we call the Fundamentals of Practice OR have been practicing Iyengar Style Alignment Yoga for Some time and have Some Familiarity with the Basics.
No Brand-New Students to the Iyengar Method of Yoga can take this Continuing Course, regardless of their previous non-Iyengar yoga background. They are advised to first take the Fundamentals Intensive which will prepare them for this course.
The purpose of this course is to be able to take students further into developing a deeper, stronger, and more confident practice. The pace will be a little faster than the fundamentals course.
Richard will be able to give more variety of sequences, and new poses to practice leading to continuous improvement.
For those who have taken the January and February fundamentals Intensive or just one of them and don’t feel ready to go a little deeper in the practice, we will again offer a Fundamentals course in April 2020.
This Continuing Level Course will not be offered again until June 2020, so don’t miss out.
This is a Yoga Intensive, a Progressive 3-Week Course where the same group of students comes 4 days a week to learn how to practice yoga correctly, appropriately, and with energy and enthusiasm.
Students experience the power of almost daily practice, and how progress is made in yoga.
This type of course is rare or nonexistent in the Seattle area where most classes are casual drop-ins with new and different students in each class. Drop-in classes rarely advance the student.
What is Special about This Intensive Course?
- You are learning Iyengar Yoga, an extremely well respected, methodical approach to yoga which makes yoga accessible and lays out many clear paths to real progress.
Iyengar Yoga is often called the Gold Standard of Yoga Systems. It is practiced by over 10 million students worldwide. Time Magazine listed its founder BKS Iyengar as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2004.
Iyengar Yoga emphasizes precision of alignment in every yoga pose and practicing poses in such a way as to create vitality, a life to them. The development of increased awareness and sensitivity for each student is very important.
Iyengar Yoga emphasizes the regular practice of Standing Poses, Inversions, Forward Extensions, Backward Extensions. Twists and Restorative Poses in the practice.
Simple props are often used to make poses more stable, more accessible, and often, more accurate.
- The teacher, Richard Schachtel is one of the most experienced Yoga Teachers in the Northwest.
There is a maturity to Richard’s teaching, coming from many years of personal practice, study and teaching literally 1000’s of students.
- The intensive format where the same group of people attends 4 days a week for 3 weeks without any casual drop-in students. This structure helps to create an environment where the classes develop, and students make safe, consistent, real progress.
