What is Yoga?

How do you feel after yoga class? Do you feel that the experience was not only physical? That feeling is real. Yoga is an ancient practice of which asana is only a part. In this course, we will explore the foundations of yoga, and the source of the “good feelings” that the practice creates. This knowledge will enable you to deepen and personalize your own practice for years to come.

Part asana, part conversation based in-depth course on yoga. We’ll explore yoga from ancient teaching to modern relevancy.

Inspired by the lineage of Krishnamacharya we will be using the book-”the heart of yoga, by Desikachar” throughout the course.

Some of the topics included:
  • The Yogic Universe
  • What are you according to Yoga?
  • The Yamas
  • The Niyamas
  • Asana
  • Pranayama
  • The final 4 limbs and Meditation


6 week series – Fridays, March 8-April 12, 6-8pm

Cost $225


About the instructors:

Jackie Elliott

Jackie Elliott

I teach from my experience of needing and using yoga daily. I like to convey the simple yet powerful tools it gives us through subtle breath, thoughtful sequencing and themed meditation. One of the reasons I took and still take all those trainings is for structure, I need the discipline for my wobbly joints. But my background is dance, fluid, creative. I was actually a professional modern dancer and hula dancer for a short time. I think that influences my yoga style in being fluid yet steady. So I guess I would say I am a good mix of hearty old school yoga, simple and clear, mixed with a deep awareness of sequencing the poses correctly making the practice fluid and free. 

Right now I am excited to take people deeper into the roots of yoga, the philosophy, the breath, helping one establish a practice for a lifetime. And I am always excited about taking yoga outside! I find connecting with nature helps us be in awe of the moment noticing the rhythms around and within. I also think taking yoga outside helps us know we can take our practice anywhere, anytime. I hope we can go on a yoga adventure together!

Why teach yoga?
It keeps me vulnerable and I love being part of this community so much.

Quote I live by:
“Self-possessed, resolute, act without any thought of results, open to success or failure. This equanimity is yoga” Bhagavad Gita 2:48

Morning ritual:
Tea and reading. I also mutter “ok…its going to be a good day” on the way to school everyday. Sometimes with enthusiasm and sometimes like a crazy person on the bus talking herself into it.

Anything else?
Yoga helps keep me disciplined. I have a huge tamasic streak…I love cheetos, re-runs, reading the kind of thrillers you can buy at the supermarket… I NEED yoga to keep me balanced!
