Myths & Methods
An Ongoing 6-Class Series
Wednesdays, 6:15 - 8 pm
Introduction and Overview
In addition the the regular menu of stories and alignment work, this series will attempt to place the traditions I draw from in the context of the larger yoga world.
Oct 18th - Nov 29th (no class Nov 22nd)
Myths & Methods is an ongoing, 6-week class series, each with its own philosophical (myths) & physical (methods) focus. The sequences are alignment-based and strength building at an intermediate level
My approach to myth is metaphor rather than dogma — the deities as archetypes for understanding ourselves and the world — and is informed by my many years of study with Dr Douglas Brooks. By layering the rich teachings of Rajanaka and the greater Sri Vidya traditions over a detailed study of asana and the body, we unlock the mysteries of both, revealing a multitude of pathways to a more integrated life.
I love the series structure. It offers more depth than drop-ins, but you don't have to travel or block off a weekend to dive in. Taking even one six-week section will benefit your practice, although many students make the series a part of their regular weekly routine. Those many repeat students form the backbone of a rich community of learners that is a hallmark of M&M, and a fringe benefit of committing to a deeper engagement with your yoga.
This series takes place online via Zoom

"Sometimes when I go to Alison’s classes it’s like she’s speaking directly to me... like she knows what’s going on with me - it’s usually a story that’s also related to myth and also related to life - like your life.”
