Discover the joy of jump-backs and jump-throughs in the Ashtanga Primary Series.
In this workshop we’ll play with some approaches for jumping back & jump through, including beginner stages (walking/stepping back/through, lifts, etc.) and breaking down the movement and breath of some seated transitions. Great for practitioners of all levels to play with and discover different approaches for these transitions! We’ll start with a brief standing sequence and use the vinyasas in the first half of primary series to play with these ideas. The workshop will also include time to work on other transitions you may be interested in!
Amanda is an Ashtanga practitioner in Camden/Rockport who recently moved from Vermont, where she studied and received an RYT-200 from Kathy McNames at Yoga Vermont. She enjoys the challenges that Ashtanga presents every day in simply starting to practice, and the community feeling of being part of a tradition. Plus, it’s fun! She has attended numerous Ashtanga workshops and visited lots of studios in her travels, including workshops with David Swenson & Shelly Washington, David WIlliams, Peter Sanson Sharath Jois, and Saraswathi Jois.
She finally “got” jump-backs in November 2016 after coining “No Excuses November” and trying to keep her feet off the ground!
