Details on David Roche

Hi folks,

As most of you know Philippe is away in Europe and we are at the moment waiting for him to be at a computer so he can post the details on David on the registration page. In the mean time, since we have finalized the details we wanted to share them with you so people can plan for it.

To start, he will teach morning mysore regular schedule September 1st through September 30th, except Tuesdays which will be moved to 7 to 9 to accommodate a special earlier class.  Friday will be practice led and continue to start at 630 am.  Mysore class pricing will be as follows:

drop in $25

5 class pass for $100

10 class pass for $185

All month Mysore classes for $350. Rollover students will be credited. And we will have a scholarship fund if people either want to donate or have need.

In addition David would like to run two special series classes. Both will be at 530 am, yes that’s am, and run until 700 am. Second series class will be on Sundays and Primary Series will be on Tuesdays. Here is what he shared with me regarding these classes:

Our Guru, Sri Pattabhi Jois has defined for us Tristana, the tripartite approach to asana practice which comprises correct breathing, posture, and gazing point.  His movement system or vinyasa clearly outlines the number of breaths and movements for moving into and out of each posture.  On the other hand, his system allows for considerable individuality in searching for the greatest levels of joyful steadiness and ease in each posture.  For me, this search has often led beyond the boundaries of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga but the outcome of my search has always brought me back “home”.

Mysore Preludes represents one man’s search for joyful steadiness and ease in asana practice.  Although there will be considerable carry-over between the two classes – Mysore Preludes Primary and Mysore Preludes Intermediate – each will work toward a greater understanding of how to approach the more difficult postures of each series.

So this special series of four Tuesdays is $100, four Sundays is the same. If there is space for drop in for these classes, we will allow people to drop in for $30. Class size will be limited to 10 people.
