Hanuman teaches:

Deep Release Yoga on Wed. 9:30-11:30

Yoga For Your Back on Fridays 4-5:30

Deep Release Yoga is a Level 2 class and meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 am.  This is a 2 hr class and is designed for students who are familiar with Svaroopa Yoga or have been to Hanumans beginning class (Yoga for your  Back)  Call 707-247-3237 for more information.

“Yoga For Your Back” is on Friday afternoons from 4 till 5:30 pm  This class is a beginning level 1 class.  After this class your back will feel better and your mind will be quieter.

Hanuman Teaches a deep release style of yoga based on Svaroopa Yoga and the teachings  of Swami Nirmalananda Saraswati.  The focus of these classes is to release the deep core tensions within the body.  This decompresses the spine and opens up the flow of energy along the spine and throughout the whole body.  Utilizing traditional poses along with various props, Hanuman will help you find the alignment and support that will help you get a deep release in the core of your body. This allows you to soften into the alignment instead of tightening to hold the alignment.  The weight of the body then leans into the bones for support which increases bone density.  There is a focus on stabilizing the hip and shoulder joints to prevent over stretching of the ligaments and connective tissue, especially in extra stretchy people with hypermobile joints.  This helps get the release to go deep into the core of the body rather than stretching out the joints.  When the deep core tension is released the legs and arms realign relieving ankle, knee and hip pain as well as wrist, elbow and shoulder pain.  One of the keys to this practice is awareness in the body and within oneself.  It encourages students to drop into the deeper experiences yoga can offer and is a great practice for supporting meditation and other spiritual practices.
Eliot Hanuman Tigerliy has been teaching yoga since 1999 and has over 500 hrs of teacher training and adds hrs of new training each year.

Tasia Whitmore

Ashtanga Vinyasa Basics

6-7:30 on Mondays

Yoga is an integral part of my daily life, of whichI have been practicing daily since 1999. My first trip to India was in 2002 to complete a Sivananda teacher training in Neyyar Dam, Kerala. Later that year, I found myself in Mysore where I met my teacher Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. I was then invited to practice with a small group of people in his home. I spent the next years studying yoga with Guruji and philosophy and the Vedas with Dr. Jois (a relative of Guruji). In 2007 I was given the blessing to teach and hold a level 2 Authorization certificate from the KPJAYI school of Mysore, India. Since Guruji’s passing in 2009,  I have continued my yoga studies with his grandson, Sharath Jois, in Mysore. Teaching yoga is my dharma. I love to practice and share what I have learned from my teachers with my students.

 

 

Ashtanga-128x170
 

Ashtanga Yoga – Level 2-3 

Fridays
8:30 am -10 am

This is a “self practice” session for advance practioners. Ashtanga Vinyasa series flows from one pose to the next, and keeps you moving from beginning to end.

It starts with sun salutations, moves into standing poses, seated postures flow, and finishing poses, ending with a very appreciated relaxation period in savasana.

This is fun and invigorating for those who know the series and just want to sweat and flow! Previous experience practicing yoga is required. Practitioners help adjust each other in certain poses.
