Short Forms - Ashtanga Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Dean Hollingsworth

Dean Hollingsworth found yoga in 2007 and immediately felt the impact it had upon his physical, mental and spiritual life. As his practice continues to deepen, his life continues to bloom and as a result he seeks to share this experience with others. He earned his 200hr RYT certification in 2012. A “chance encounter” then led him to meet and learn the Ashtanga method from Jeff Clardy, for which he is forever grateful. In an effort to further deepen his practice, Dean traveled to Mysore, India in October of 2014, and again in November 2015, where he studied Ashtanga Vinyasa in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois with Sharath Jois.
 

On his trip to Mysore in November of 2016, Sharath officially Authorized Dean to teach Ashtanga Yoga. Dean is the only Authorized teacher in the DFW Metroplex and one of 4 in the state of Texas.

 

He is passionate about sharing the teachings of his personal practice and all that he has learned with the DYC Ashtanga community.

When time is short, an abbreviated yoga routine is always better than no yoga at all. Enjoy the benefits of Ashtanga yoga with this Ashtanga Short Form created by yoga pioneer David Swenson, author of the Ashtanga Yoga Practice Manual.

David  created a set of abbreviated routines which he calls ‘Short Forms’. These shorter sessions are a great way to become familiar with the essence of the practice when time is limited.

Sun Salutations prepare the body for a series of standing, seated and lying down Asanas (poses). This practice produces intense internal heat and sweat to detoxify the entire body.

This simple ‘short-form’ practice is ideal to keep the Ashtanga Yoga routine going throughout the week.
