Our origins were the ocean. Even now, we humans
are over 70% salt water. The sea inside is our original
flow and can be used to inspire asana practice. Barbara
will use pacing, breathing and evocative images to transport
you into the deep currents within. Guided by the tidal
rhythm of the breath, movement becomes fluid and meditative.
You will float home.

is happy to partner with Down Under Yoga in hosting
Doug Keller for
another of his popular weekends that will be packed
with details of how to practice and teach with a therapeutic
eye. Doug Keller’s background reflects a lifelong
commitment to the vast field of yoga. After receiving
degrees in philosophy and teaching philosophy at college
level, he pursued a practical experience of yoga at
the ashram Gurudev Siddha Peeth in India — which
in turn also led him to the practice of hatha yoga as
part of his overall experience of yoga. Doug teaches
hatha yoga workshops and trainings in both North America
and Europe. He has written extensively for Yoga International
Magazine and Yoga Journal. His popularity as a teacher
comes from his ability to deepen people’s experience
of yoga through clear, simple instructions that are
easy to practice and remember.

Barbara welcomes back the venerable Richard Freeman
to the Boston area. Richard is one of the world’s
leading teachers of yoga. He began the practice of yoga
asana and meditation in 1968 and subsequently found
an integrative vision in the teachings of the late Sri
K. Pattabhi Jois. A master of Astanga Yoga, Richard’s
teaching style is unique in that it continuously restructures
and reframes the biomechanical and perceptual forms
of the asana and movement in the context of a profound
understanding of yoga philosophy, all laden with humor
and compassion. Richard spent nearly nine years in Asia
studying various traditions that he incorporates into
the Astanga yoga practice.

gracefully and effortlessly in and out of poses, it is essential to stay vibrant
and grounded in the breathing. This class will be based on a study
of the essential and elusive activity of Mulabandha
and the strong grounding effect of correct ujjayi pranayama. The
actual Mulabandha is a conjunction of complimentary
movement patterns which open the central axis of the
body right up through the root of the palate. We
will flow seamlessly through these movement patterns,
following the thread of the central axis.
