Primary Series Weekend Immersion II
June 13th 1-5pm AND June 14th 1:30-5:30pm at Yoga Now Chicago
Cost: $128 if registered before June 1 // $160 after
Note: This workshop will be held virtually. The City of Chicago has in person yoga classes in Phase 4 which is not anticipated until later in the summer.
In this immersion, we’ll explore the second half of the Ashtanga Primary Series, and breakdown each posture and transition into detail. This is a challenging set of postures that, when approached gracefully and consistently over time, will build great physical, mental, and spiritual strength. This workshop is for the person who desires for their ashtanga yoga practice to grow and become a healing force in their life.
