The Art and Soul of Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga
Dive into the depth of your yoga practise, and the depth of the Agean Sea, to restore, renew and expand your experience of your inner most Self and extend summer with the warming touch of the Greek sun.
Ron Reid and Marla Meenakshi Joy have been teaching a variety of inspired yoga classes and workshops which are Ashtanga and Vinyasa based fort he past 30 years. Their reach has been global for the past 20 years. With their band SWAHA they have been leading kirtan (call-and-response chanting) and teach yoga and music in a unique combination. Inspired by Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, (and the vinyasa practice as a whole) they inform it with intelligent natural body alignment principles, SWAHA YOGA is designed ultimately to tap the creative spark within, and approach the Yoga practice as a Whole (8-limbed path). Their home studio DOWNWARD DOG is based in Toronto and has been a destination for yoga since 1997 and belongs to the TOP 10 yoga studios in Canada. They are Master teachers, and their Teacher Training program is top notch and well known around the world.
