Monday February 25, 2019 - Sunday March 3, 2019

We are excited to welcome Taylor Hunt back to Napa for an empowering week long intensive - diving deep into the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. This week will be particularly special. It will be the first time Taylor has offered this unique curriculum outside of his home shala in Columbus Ohio.


The week is designed for Yoga students, teachers, and health care professionals seeking to better themselves, help others and become a part of a global community.


In addition to daily morning Mysore practice with Taylor, we will have afternoon workshops on asana, anatomy, philosophy, adjusting, Sanskrit counting and chanting as it pertains to the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. Taylor will share with the group the role Ashtanga Yoga has played throughout his journey - from the depths of addiction and depression to becoming a globally respected teacher, published author, husband and father of three, and founder of the non-profit organization, The Trini Foundation. Taylor will also address the current national health crisis associated with drug and alcohol addiction and how Ashtanga yoga can be offered as a tool to help people achieve long-term sobriety.


Workshop Topics include (but aren't limited to):

  • Basics of practice within the Primary Series including Sanskrit language, names of asana, cadence, and vinyasa count.

  • Postural anatomy, reading bodies and understanding the components of safe and effective adjustment techniques in personal practice, and when working with individuals who have experienced trauma.

  • Review of addiction and the current health crisis in the United States

  • The Trini Foundation’s mission and how Ashtanga Yoga can be used as a tool to help people recover from addiction and trauma.

Sample Schedule: (subject to change)

Mysore practice: 5:30am - 9:00am (you will be assigned a start time)
Workshop/Lecture: 12:00pm - 4:30pm
