Overall Therapeutic Approach

For 10 weeks, we will do Therapeutic Yoga for healing the feet and legs, hips, lower back/core strength, upper back, arms, neck and shoulders, as well as the mind and emotions. Each topic will be addressed for 2 weeks at a time, with each topic building on the last for a whole person/whole body, integrated approach.

The Yoga asana-s (Yoga postures) are breath coordinated with movement and alignment-based, with breathing, chanting, visualization, and restorative practices integrated into all classes.

You will be asked to provide a self-assessment and registration form before the series begins each term to clarify individual therapeutic needs (see bottom of page). Maggie will track changes and progress throughout the term.

You are also encouraged to work with Maggie privately on Fridays and Saturdays to develop a home practice to deepen your experience.

Chennai Practice: Self-Paced Class for Private Yoga Therapy

This class is called the Chennai Practice, modelled after the self-paced Mysore Practice of Astanga Vinyasa Yoga (Pattabhi Jois), but is named after the place where these teachings originate: Chennai, South India.

The Chennai Practice is for Maggie's current private students to help them build their home practice during the week and to receive her support on Saturdays. If you're a private student, you are invited to the Inner City Ashram once a week, post-private sessions, to do your own practice along with other students, while Maggie circulates and offers feedback. 

When it is time to progress to a new practice, you can book another series of private sessions with Maggie, and then start another series of the Chennai practice when it is available. This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your home Yoga practice! Maggie looks forward to helping you in this setting.

Tuition: Free for Current Private Students 

Time: Saturdays, 11am to 12noon starting March 11 to June 2, 2018
No classes on March 31st and May 19th
Please note: Other Saturdays may be cancelled when Maggie is away.
