Although the arm balances in Ashtanga yoga come in the later series, learning to balance on your hands begins right from the first sun-salutation. However you need to start to build up the strength through your core, shoulders, and arms to be able to enjoy balancing on your hands. These foundations are found in the postures of primary & second series.
Come play with different ways to enter many advanced arm balances and find joy in developing new abilities. This workshop is suitable for all levels and above all will be fun as well as informative. There will be a chance to ask Harmony questions.
In 2002 Harmony traveled to China with a field school to research Buddhist Meditation. For six weeks, she lived and practiced in several monasteries in remote areas of the countryside. These experiences encouraged her to pursue more actively the path of Ashtanga Yoga in conjunction with a meditation practice. After this she attended several ten-day Vipassana meditation retreats, as taught by S. N. Goenka.
She made her first trip to Mysore, India in 2004, to practice and learn Ashtanga yoga under the direct guidance of Sri. K Pattabhi Jois and his grandson R. Sharath Jois. She continued returning annually to practice and immerse herself within India’s colorful context for many months at a time.
After that Harmony moved to Thailand and began learning Pranayama directly from Sri O.P Tiwari, at the time head of the Kaivalyadhama Institute. She practiced with him for the next twelve years.
In 2015, Harmony received ‘Certification’ from Sharath Jois. This is the highest acknowledgment one can receive from the original Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore. It is an internationally recognized credential to teach the Ashtanga Yoga method and the Advanced Series.
