Treat yourself to a rejuvenating 3-day Ashtanga workshop, September 30 through October 2, led by yoga luminary David Swenson at Miami Yoga Garage. The workshop kicks off on Friday with a Mysore style class, followed by a fully guided tour of the Primary Series on Saturday and a guided, measured flow of the Intermediate Series on Sunday. There will also be additional classes that explore both the Primary and Secondary Series via demonstration and discussion. Here's the full workshop schedule:

Friday
6:00pm - 8:00pm Evening Mysore Style Class

Saturday
A Day in the Life of First Series
9:00am - 11:00am Compassionately Led Primary:
The day begins with a fully guided tour through the traditional flow of the Primary Series. Alternatives offered and compassionate attention provided so that all levels will feel comfortable.

12:30pm – 3:00pm Asanas, Alternatives and Attitude Practicum:
The asanas, sequence and inherent energetic expression of the Primary series will be explored through discussion and applications within a short flow. If there are specific requests for details about certain asanas, conditions and alternatives David will share his insights and practical advice.

3:00 – 5:00 Fear, Focus, Forgiveness, and Fulfillment Discussion:
Open discussion, stories told and questions asked by the participants in regards to treading the path of practice whilst confronting the pitfalls, pratfalls and fearful encounters of the yogic journey.

Sunday
Scorpions, Peacocks, and Insects that fly. Oh My! Intermediate Series and the Creatures Within.
9:00am - 11:00am Compassionately Led Intermediate Series:
The day begins with a compassionate and measured flow of the Intermediate Series. David is incredibly intuitive in presenting the practice with care and clarity. EVERY asana may be modified, amplified or demystified to suit the needs of every individual.

12:30pm – 3:00pm Entering the Jungle and Animal Encounters Practicum:
There is a ‘zoological’ component within the dynamic and invigoration sequence Intermediate Series. In this second session of the day, David will present ways to approach these animal-inspired asanas as well as address any specific areas of interest expressed by the participants such as the cleansing effects on the nervous system, mind and emotional releases from the power of practice.

3:00pm – 5:00pm Advantages of Age and the Myth of Eternal Youth Discussion:
The focus of this open discussion and Q&A is the inevitable reality of aging and the struggles of acceptance, uncertainty of the unknown and the peace found from embracing the journey.
