Deepen your asana and movement practice by joining us for a series that explores the question –what is yoga? Intentionally connecting with the many definitions of yoga can offer a rich and engaging practice that calms the mind and promotes healing. In this class we will explore various definitions of yoga–including the meanings we discover ourselves–as we practice asana and pranayama. Each class will start with an invitation to connect with a particular definition of yoga, then we will move through a gentle sequence of asana postures, and we’ll conclude with a short pranayama and meditation practice. Taught in the style of Sri Krisnamacharya and TKV Desikachar, this gentle class will be adapted for diverse abilities.
The instructor:Martha Ryan
Martha’s journey with yoga began eight years ago, when she moved to Delhi, India and began studying yoga in the tradition of Sri Krishnamacharya. She completed a 500-hour RYT yoga teacher training with Saraswathi Vasudevan at YogaVahini in Chennai, India, and she continues to be guided by unwavering mentorship and community support. Since 2013, she has also practiced various meditation techniques including Vipassana and Transcendental Meditation.
Martha’s goal in teaching asana (postures) and pranayama (breathwork) is to help students develop relationships between: you and your practice, your body, your breath, and your teacher. Her gentle classes center the union between breath, body, and mind by beginning and ending with pranayama. She has taught both individuals and groups in a wide spectrum of settings such as studios, assisted living centers, homes, and schools. She is never not amazed by the transformative power of yoga!
