"The stories … they’re enriching, they’re engaging, they’re contemplative —"
Myths & Methods
An Ongoing 6 class Series
Wednesdays, 7:15 - 9pm at the People's Yoga.
Myths & Methods is an ongoing, 6 week class series, each with its own philosophical (myths) & physical (methods) focus.
My approach to myth is metaphor rather than dogma -- the dieties 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-in's, but you don't have to travel or block off a weekend to dive in. Taking even one six-week section can 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.
"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.”
