|Sunday: Group 2||10:15-12:15||Led class, first series. Kathy will instruct participants through the standing, sitting, back-bending and inversion sequences of the primary series.|
|Sunday||14:30-16:30||Asana clinic (Groups 1 & 2)* - 2 hours of second series poses and back-bending with principals of alignment. (This is open to students of all yoga styles.)|
* The afternoon programs apply to all yoga styles, not just Ashtanga, and so we allow students of all styles to participate.
Seven sessions are scheduled from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, each of 2 hours duration. We suggest students attend five of the seven sessions: the one Friday evening session, one morning session (Group 1 or 2) each day, and the one afternoon session each day where participants of morning groups 1 and 2 can both participate. This makes for a total weekend experience of five sessions.

"I have been teaching Ashtanga Yoga for 35 years. In that time, I have taught less than a dozen people the entire four series. One of these people was Kathy Cooper. She began practicing with me in 1976. Kathy is a true yogini. Her practice and her personality are beautiful and an inspiration to everyone who meets her. She is as nice a person as you will ever meet. Whenever I am asked to recommend a yoga teacher in the San Francisco area, without hesitation, I always recommend Kathy first. She is the best." - David Williams (www.ashtangayogi.com)
"I’ve known Kathy Cooper for approximately 32 years. She is one of a handful of Ashtanga Yoga practioners who has learned the Advanced A and B sequences. She has maintained a consistent practice as well. Kathy is also a gifted yoga teacher who is gentle, compassionate, observant, thorough and kind in her approach to teaching. I have often recommended her to individuals and groups that I have taught Yoga to. Everyone who I have recommended Kathy to as a teacher has been very thankful to meet and work with her." - Danny Paradise (www.dannyparadise.com)
"Kathy is very qualified to teach Ashtanga Yoga. Through years of practice, Kathy has shown her love and understanding of the Ashtanga method taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. She is excellent at taking beginning students safely into the practice, as well as teaching the more advanced practitioners. I have no hesitation in recommending her." - Nancy Gilgoff
"Kathy Cooper is the Grand Madam of Ashtanga Yoga." - Tim Miller
Style: Ashtanga Yoga
Ashtanga vinyasa is a hatha yoga practice transmitted to Pattabhi Jois from the great yoga master Krishnamacharya. It is for students seeking an invigorating approach that purifies, stimulates and energizes. It consists of postures practiced in a fluid rhythm with a concentrated breath, steady gaze, and internal contractions to direct vital energy. Due to the dynamic nature of this practice, one feels completely energized and purified in each cell of the body and also in the mind. Go to the Ashtanga yoga page.
Teacher: Kathy Cooper
Kathy brings an informed, deep, long-time practice of 40 years to her Ashtanga teaching, supporting practitioners to strengthen their core/breath/alignment to correct and avoid injuries and move from the inside. Her style is practical and hands on. You will receive individual attention, adjustments, and insights to help you deepen your practice. Go to Kathy's page.
