in-depth * On-the-regular * Close-to-home

Yoga Club was inspired by a common question that students would ask after Retreats and Immersions: "how do I get more of this?". There was a strong need for in-depth studies, on-the-regular, close to home. Yoga Club is the answer. 

Yoga Club is a small, dedicated group (8-12 students) so you receive more attention, adjustments, and connection. Everyone is committed to the semester, so we can really dive deep and cover more ground - with postures, philosophy and practice methodology. There are resources and recordings for learning after the course too. 


When you say the “vast lineage of yoga” I’ve known it’s true, but never felt the weight of it.  Finding something deeper seemed like a faraway country with no boat or map to get there. Yoga Club has given me a visceral experience of that vast lineage and a toe dip into those faraway lands.”

Fall 2018: The Niyamas + Major Movers.  

Day/Time: Sacred Sundays, 10am-1pm

Dates: 9/30, 10/14, 10/28, 11/11, 12/2

Location: a private studio in San Francisco

For Fall Semester of Yoga Club, we’ll return to the Niyamas. These are the internal observances listed by Patanjali in his 8 aids to Yoga (Astanga Yoga). The Niyamas move you towards yoga by re-aligning your inner world. 

Parallel to the Niyamas (which are major movers of spiritual practice), we’ll study the “major movers” of the body. These are smaller, more subtle muscles; they're not super sensational because they are deep or asleep; the size and structure make them more difficult to feel and fire. However, once activated, they add another dimension of intelligence to your body and possibility for your practice.
