Limited Capacity seats available

Every class that we teach can be considered a mixed-level class. This means special attention needs to be paid to those that are not readily able to do an asana or grasp an instruction. This requires patience, insight, sensitivity, experience and the ability to communicate clearly. This class will look at ways to work with people with a healthy, strong body as well as those with injuries or special conditions. By learning to recognize inherent lines of energy comprising an asana the teacher can discover ways of bringing the student into harmony within those lines. David calls this approach of observation: ”Equality of Opposition and the Six Directions”.  There will be an initial Q and A to explore specific conditions and situations followed by practical work with partners to apply the techniques. There will be lots of hands-on adjusting methods shared. David has an amazing ability to provide great depth of experience while also keeping the room full with joy and excitement! Open to Teachers, Seekers and General Enthusiasts of Yoga!

**This class has been approved by American Council on Exercise (ACE) for CECs.**
