Handstands Begin in Primary Series
Leaning to balance on your hands begins right from the first sun-salutation. If you want to start to build up the strength through the arms and core to practice handstands, the founda-
tions are found right in the postures of primary series, starting with every Vinyasa – learning to jump back and jump through.
THE MYTH OF BACK BENDING
Fundamentals for a Pain-Free Backbend
We will look at what is Yoga Chikitsa & Nadi Shodana and how we can purify our energy channels.What kinds of physical &psychological preparations do we need to do to prepare for
Intermediate Series. We will explore some back-bending enhancements: looking at the principles of opening the heart, being vulnerable, and the importance to cultivate great strength
in the foundation of our lives (and legs).

HARMONY SLATER BIO
Harmony Slater has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga in the Mysore method for over a decade. She was first introduced to Yoga in 1995, and began practicing Ashtanga Yoga in 2000. She always had a keen interest in spirituality and the art of physical movement, which culminated in fifteen years of dance training and two BA degrees in Philosophy and Religious Studies.
In 2002, she traveled through China researching Buddhist meditation and in 2004 she made her first trip to Mysore, India. That same year she moved to South East Asia where she began a journey of teaching Yoga. Internationally, which allowed her to spend long periods of time practicing with Sri K Pattabhi Jois and his grandson R. Sharath Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute, now the KPJAYI.
Harmony was given Authorization by Guruji in 2006, and was granted Certification by Paramaguru Sharath Jois in 2015. Over the years she co-founded two traditional Ashtanga Yoga Schools in Canada. The first was established in 2009, in Victoria BC, and the other is found in Calgary AB, where she currently teaches and resides.
