About David Keil:

David Keil, the author of "Functional Anatomy Of Yoga, A Guide For Practitioners and Teachers", is one of the world's foremost teachers of ashtanga yoga. He is authorized Level 2 by K. Pattabhi Jois, the founder of ashtanga yoga, and his grandson R. Sharath in Mysore, India. David has an extensive background in bodywork and anatomy and travels most of the year giving anatomy, adjustment, and Ashtanga yoga workshops around the world.

Detailed Workshop Description:

Mysore classes:

Self-practice is what yoga is all about. Yoga, for thousands of years has been taught from teacher to student on a one-to-one basis taking a student through his or her own development at an appropriate pace. This method is still used in Mysore, India where the "Guru" of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teaches in this method. This is why this type of practice is also called "Mysore" style or class. The workshop is limited to 10 students per class. This is to ensure that David has the time and space to get to know each student. His teaching is based on each student's individuality as well as the strengths and weaknesses in their practice.


Afternoon workshops:

Sunday: The Matrix of Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is perhaps one of the most misunderstood styles in the yoga world even though so many other styles are influenced by it. In this workshop, we first understand the context within which the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method came to be. Then we look at the essential elements that make it distinct and an extremely internal practice. These elements are vinyasa/breath, bandha, dristhi, and asana. It's one thing to know what these words mean, and another to have an experience of them. We will be doing small pieces of practice to illustrate the concepts and practices that lead to an actual experience of these elements. We will also take a look at why this method is so often misunderstood. Bring your skepticism and judgments if you wish.

Our intention during this workshop is to create a perspective and understanding of the practice that allows us to appreciate it. The practice is mostly misunderstood by people who have not practiced it. When I use the term practice, I don't mean going to a led primary series class and thinking that one has practiced it. What I mean is a minimum of 5 days of practice in a row, with a teacher who can transmit the essential points of the practice that leads one to an EXPERIENCE of the practice. Ashtanga is much more than doing the postures in a particular sequence. This is a lecture-based workshop and aimed at those who have an open mind and a desire to understand the system in a way that enhances whatever method of practice they choose to participate in.


Tuesday: Three anatomical points to effortless practice

After teaching anatomy and yoga for nearly twenty years, the core of movement in practice can be brought back to three anatomical points that direct you toward the core of the body. This workshop is about simplifying the complexity of where to practice from anatomically. By focusing on these three anatomical points you will develop safe and effective movement that becomes expansive and effortless. It sounds too good to be true, but this is the really the basis of understanding the physical component of bandhas in your yoga practice. There are many ways to approach the practice of yoga. Anatomy is simply another perspective that can be used to understand how to approach practice. Come along and experience a truly new way to move in your body and take your practice to the next level.
