Free Members Workshop: What are we really doing in Yoga? with Zander Winther

Jan 13, 2019, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Have you ever had that moment in the middle of your downward facing dog where you ask yourself: what exactly am I doing here? Is this a workout, a kind of physical therapy, a meditation practice or perhaps a form of art? What are these postures for?

Join Zander as we explore these questions together in a guided group discussion. We will begin by examining what exactly is happening in the postures (asanas) before moving onto the even larger question: what is Yoga?  We will reflect on both of these questions from a personal perspective, sharing experiences and insights, and survey the evolution of historical answers to these two big questions.

Come prepared with your questions and experiences of yoga. Wear comfortable clothing as we will do some light postures, and bring a pen and journal or something to write on.

Zander Winther

Zander found Vinyasa Yoga exactly when he needed it. Several years of working in homeless shelters and a variety of unhealthy daily habits had left him depleted and merely aiming to get through another day. Yoga was part of a reboot plan to ‘live without dead time’ and after just one Vinyasa class he committed to a daily practice. His passion for Yoga integrated long-standing connections to Vajrayana Buddhism, radical environmentalism and an academic background in philosophy. These interests are woven together in a traditional framework that draws inspiration from the powerful teachings of Shri Krishnamacharya, who helped re-establish Yoga in the modern age.

Zander is an E-RYT 200 and registered Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, with over 1000 hours of teaching experience and over 500 hours in training. He is also a certified Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist through the Himalayan Institute and holds an MA in Philosophy. You can read more about him at zanderyoga.com.
