Ashtanga Yoga & Meditation Retreat with Katharine Kaufman
November 10–12, 2006
In this weekend retreat, we will explore the heart of Ashtanga Yoga, which includes alignment, breath and meditation, practicing the classical and dynamic flowing sequence of postures based on the inner form. We will also experiment with partner work and restorative practice, honing awareness and coming to a greater understanding of our own being. Students at all levels of practice welcome.
