AVG Yoga Studio designed by Yogi Ramanand Patel
 Hatha Yoga asana practice is a discipline through which the student may develop strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination among other benefits, including calmness and resolution. The practice rewards the aspirant who regularly engages in a routine that may be acquired from a teacher in classes. Age or stiffness need not be a hindrance as the teacher is generally able to assist the participant in adapting asanas to their individual need. All adults are welcome for classes/workshop listed below.

Class attire is bare feet, shorts or footless tights and tee shirt. No perfume. No heavy jewelry. Do not eat a meal two hours prior to doing yoga. Do not come to class if you have a contagious condition. Please be on time. Class begins promptly at the published class time.

Change of season should be reflected in one’s practice of yoga. The exterior environment and the interior environment need to interact harmoniously to bring balance to daily living. Sequence is the art that changes yoga practice from routine to revelation of well-being. 
In addition to Janet’s daily teaching of asana and pranayama, Pat will present morning sessions on Patajali yoga sutra and afternoon sessions on yoga philosophy found in Sankya and Yoga Sutras.
Janet is an intermediate certified Iyengar yoga teacher with 30 years of experience. Pat is a long time student of the Himilayan Yoga Tradition and director of the Ayurveda program at Bhavana Institute for yoga and Ayurvedic Studies in LaGrange, IL. 
 
Students should have previous training in the Iyengar method of yoga and a timed practice of inversions to enjoy this workshop. No previous experience in Ayurveda is required.

Yoga & Sound is a tool for feeling the breath. Absorption into sound while in yoga poses enables the breath to flow more freely bringing inner peace that leads the aspirant to merge with the formless. Discourses in Vedanta bring a deeper understanding of the Self.
