Some of our patterns are positive and helpful while others keep us circling through unproductive and harmful cycles. In yoga, these patterns are called samskaras. Come spend the afternoon looking at some common patterns that occur on the mat, what those patterns can tell us, and how we can shift out of habitual negative ruts and find a new groove.

Sometimes we need to spend time breaking down a specific genre of poses. This weekend we examine forward bending postures, alignment and variations. We will also focus on physiology of the spine and the manipura chakra. These physical aspects along with the study of kriya yoga and upanishads give us the ability to cleanse the mind and allow us to bow humbly to our truest self.
