Join Ally Ford and Calley Masson this July for an Ashtanga Yoga Immersion at The Yoga Room Dunedin. Practice Mysore style Ashtanga 6 days per week followed by traditional Sanskrit chanting and meditation. We’ll chant the Yoga Sutras, Baghavad Gita, and other traditional chants. Afternoons will include philosophy discussions on the principal messages of the root texts of yoga, including the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras, followed by asana lab addressing pose alignment and how to safely approach the poses in the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series.
This is a one-month, 200-hour program for which you’ll receive a Yoga Alliance registration, however if you are interested in certification or authorization in Ashtanga yoga specifically, you must travel to Mysore, India to practice with Sharath Jois.

Join me at Largo Public Library on February 10th for a reading of my children’s book, “Garuda, The Eagle Who Soared With Ahimsa” at 10:30am followed by a FREE and fun yoga class. I’ll share the story of Garuda, an Eagle who might normally eat other animals but decides instead to practice ahimsa, or non-harming and treat others with love and kindness. He goes on a journey for friendship, meets new friends, learns how others live, and shares some important messages like non-harming, true friendship and gratitude along the way.
I’ll have books on-hand for purchase and signing and would be honored for you to attend. After the reading we’ll act out the story in a yoga class for children, and of course big kids can participate too. Come and join the fun!
