Friday May 13
6-9pm. Conference: What is Honest Practice? $40
What is the relationship of strong method and insight that goes beyond technique? Is it even possible to stay devoted to a practice for many years without a break? Does my mind have to be 100% concentrated? Do my intentions have to be 100% pure? Do I have to practice with no attachment to results? Angela will open the weekend with a discussion of these questions. You’ll also be invited to email her comments and questions the day before the workshop, so that your present experience can be addressed when we meet. We’ll conclude with light breathwork and a little silence.
Saturday May 14
8-10am. Guided Primary Series $30
10-3pm The Energetics of Ashtanga $50
Angela will do an asana demonstration (unlike any other demo you’ve seen– be prepared to get close). The bulk of the workshop then will focus on energetic technique: developing and maintaining awareness, working with the koshas, and understanding the asanas as manifestations of energy.
Bring a light meal for after primary series class.
Sunday May 15
8-11am. Mysore-Style Practice. $40
Do your usual Ashtanga practice and receive hands-on adjustments and verbal instruction from Angela. Please start finishing poses by 10am. After practice we will have a potluck brunch outside.
Angela Jamison has practiced ashtanga daily since 2003. She apprenticed to Dominic Corigliano in 2007, and was Level 2 authorized to teach by Sharath Jois of Mysore, India, in 2011. A former academic, she moved to Ann Arbor from Los Angeles in 2010, and began teaching ashtanga full time in 2011. She practices pranayama and meditation seriously, studies philosophy and chanting with her teachers in India, and takes annual silent meditation retreats. She is spending the winter on a study trip in south India, and is excited for this chance to share reflections on the trip soon after her return. For more about Angela, visit ashtangaannarbor.com.
