When:  Monday nights - 6:30pm - 8:30pm - January 17 - February 21, 2022

Who: This 6-week series is designed for students who are interested in beginning yoga, learning the basics, or who would like to learn more about the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition from the beginning.  In this course we will establish a grounded foundation for developing a sustainable and healthy Yoga practice. 

What:  Learn the basics of yoga philosophy, lineage, and method of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition. This workshop series is designed for students new to yoga or new to the Ashtanga Yoga tradition. It will provide a grounded foundation to develop an Ashtanga Yoga practice. All participants receive a booklet with workshop material.

In addition, Michelle is offering two optional Mentoring Sessions as an add on feature! More details below.

Students have 3 options to participate.

  • In person - for local students, location below. 
  • Zoom - in your own home, from anywhere in the world.
  • Class Recordings - self paced with class recordings and available consultations.

Note, class recordings are available for all registered students!  Take the workshop at your own pace, get caught up on missed classes, and use the classroom material as a reference in the future.

Mentoring Sessions:

These sessions are designed to facilitate the students' growth. We will arrange two Zoom calls with an in-person option to gather for Q&A about the material. My goal is to help my students process their experience, and clarify anything we went over in the classroom. The sessions will be interwoven throughout the six weeks and scheduled based on group consensus of participating students.  Each session will be an hour and 15 minutes.

Developing Insight to Support Your Yoga Practice - Workshop with Michelle Dorer - Fredericksburg, VA -2022

When:  Saturday, January 22, 2022 - 12:30pm - 3pm

Who:  Do you want more from your Yoga practice than a good workout? Would you like help developing seated practices to support the growth that happens on the mat?  Do you feel overwhelmed with the feelings, emotions, and change your Yoga practice brings? Are you looking for techniques to deepen your self exploration?  If so, you will love this class! This workshop is available to students of all levels and all traditions! Option to practice Mysore is available before the workshop, or you can just sign up for the workshop. 


Developing Insight to Support Your Yoga Practice:  We will examine how Patanjali defines Yoga in the Yoga Sutras. Particularly, we will focus on his instructions pertaining to Dharana, which is the first Internal Limb of Ashtanga Yoga and refers to concentration. Michelle will offer practical suggestions for developing sacred space in your own home and a daily routine to support your self work.

A short review of the basics of sitting properly and pranayama concepts then led through an abbreviated pranayama practice.

Where:  Dragonfly Yoga
810 Caroline Street
Fredericksburg, VA 22401
