Introduction to Ashtanga at the Sanctuary for Yoga

Sarah LaFleur

Sarah LaFleur

Sarah LaFleur of The Sanctuary for Yoga will teach a six-week Introduction to Mysore-style Ashtanga Yoga Series, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Thursdays, starting July 10. Practitioners will learn and memorize the sequence of asanas (postures) each week in a comfortable environment where they will receive personalized attention. They will gain an understanding of the ashtanga yoga system and the foundations for a lifelong practice.

Ashtanga yoga is an ancient system comprising asanas linked together by breath. In the Mysore style, students practice at their own pace, developing an inward focus. Through trishtana, the awareness is drawn into three actions: drishti (looking-place), bandhas (energy locks), and ujjayi (victorious) breath, a controlled form of breathing.

LaFleur completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at Dhyana Yoga in 2011 and began her studies in ashtanga yoga shortly after. Today she uses the practice as a method for selfstudy and reflection and encourages others to find their own spiritual path through the study of yoga.

Cost: $120. Location: 43 S. Main St., Medford. For registration (required) and more information, call 609-953-7800 or visit
