The Midline in Ashtanga Yoga

Workshop with Ashley Hixon

Attentively moving from the midline of the body is the nexus of the Ashtanga system. We begin, in the middle, balancing the oppositional patterns of prana and apana. Through asana we animate these patterns, inviting our perception to broaden as we lengthen, regulate, and yolk the breath to flow into spaces of constriction. We create space in this way to explore our capacity, and for our inherent expression to authentically reveal as limiting patterns break open. Our minds stretch and strengthen in correlation to our form. Bit by bit, breath by breath, we challenge ourselves to grow and expand our conscious container of embodiment, to hold whatever each moment presents with compassionate attention.

The morning sessions will be led asana and the afternoons will explore alignment and variations that lead into more advanced forms and transitions.

The closing session will focus on releasing common tension patterns and gentle pranayama.

The workshop will be held in English.

Ashley came to the Ashtanga practice in 2004 under the guidance of Annie Pace in Crestone, CO. In 2009 she completed Richard Freeman’s 200hr Teacher Intensive and in 2015 a 100hr Teacher Training with Maty Ezraty. Her mat has been at the feet of many more dedicated teachers, including Saraswati Jois, Rolf Naujokat, Tim Miller, and David Swenson to name a few.

Currently she teaches the afternoon Mysore program at the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, CO and has been honored to assist her main teachers Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor on many occasions and in numerous contexts and locations.

She is a Licensed Massage Therapist, specializing in Thai Massage, and also holds a 560Hr Certification in Subtle Energy Work; giving her a well versed platform in gross and subtle anatomy.

The contemplative nature of dedicated practice and ability of the breath to reshape perceptive reality have been her most opulent means to cultivating self-awareness.

With a humbling gratitude, she shares the riches of this tradition.
