Alex Auder – 23 to 24th of February

 
Alex Auder, director of Magu Yoga, was recently included on a list of America most influential yoga teachers (she was in the top 25!): sonima.com.  Alex is a native New Yorker who grew-up in the Chelsea Hotel with her mother, Viva (an Andy Warhol Superstar), and her sister, the actress, Gaby Hoffmann.  She is very excited to bring her 20 years of teaching experience (almost half of her life!) to Philadelphia. Known as one of NYC’s preeminent teachers, she has developed a keen eye and a genuinely authentic and original voice.  She began her teaching career in 1996 at Jivamukti Yoga Center and at her own studio in Rhinebeck, NY ( now Satya Yo ga). During her years in Upstate NY, she studied closely with her Vedanta teacher,  Shubraji , who continues to deeply influence her teaching and her practice.
 
Over the last 10 years Alex had been teaching out of her own studio in the WestVillageYoga (critics pick in NY Magazine) and as a senior teacher at Kula Yoga Project until she recently moved to Mt Airy. Informed by her study of Iyengar Yoga, Kula Yoga, and the work of Nevine Michaan (among others), her classes are known for her ability to gracefully integrate clear and precise alignment cues, intelligent sequencing, Vedanta, and generous amounts of masterful hands-on assists.

Workshop 1: Somatic Core Stability and Wise Adjustements

Saturday 23rd of February – 1:30pm to 3:30pm @ MILE END

 

Both the modern vinyasa student and teacher know that there are repetitive actions required to teach and take a “flow” class that are hard to avoid.

Down dog, Plank, a form of a push-up, Cobra and/or Updog. How can the elemental actions of these shapes and the transitions between them be codified in a way that is stable, safe, enjoyable, revealing, and applicable to the rest of the practice? And how can our adjustments of these forms better serve the student and allow for a deeper understanding of our bodies? Breaking down the fundamental elements required for all of the above actions can become what looks like a new set of actions altogether. I call this a META surya Namaskar A.

We will tackle the dissemination of information, core stability, Somatics, the fundamentals of various breathing techniques. We will explore how to imbed stability exercises within a sequence and wise hands-on assists.

Workshop 2: The Pelvis & Inner Cosmos Meditation

Sunday 24th of February – 9:30am to 11:30am @ MILE END

 

 

The pelvis is the gateway between the lower and upper worlds of the body and can be a potent somatic launchpad.
ALL genders are encouraged to come to this workshop as our focus will be the pelvic diaphragm and how it functionally relates to the core. Then we will explore a guided, somatic meditation, both sitting up and then lying down in a savanna-like state.
