Friday, July 27 · 9-10:30 AM · $35 ($25 for Friends of SAC)
Eddie will teach a one-and-a-half hour Ashtanga Yoga primary series class, followed by a short talk on the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms that contribute to an effective yoga practice. Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic practice that focuses on linking breath in movement within a variety of traditional yoga postures. The class will end with a short breathing practice to balance the branches of the nervous system. All levels are welcome. Bring your own mat.
