Astanga Pro-Tips

Are you curious about Astanga classes but nervous just to jump in and give it a try?  We’ve got pro tips & helpful hints that may make it a little less intimidating class to try out! First, we recommend Astanga for experienced students.  While there are modifications offered for poses, just like a regular O2-style class, the pace of Astanga is a little quicker because there’s a lot to get to!  In Primary Series, students who are Intermediate-level and beyond will recognize many of the postures, but it’s helpful to have a...

Getting to Know You: Sarah Rose

We are so excited to have added five brand new teachers to our regular schedule this spring, so we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to each of them. Today, we’d like you to meet Sarah Rose, the third and final member of #TeamSarah on our teaching staff — and also the final one of our brand-new-five for us to introduce to you.  Herein referred to simply as Sarah, she found her way to O2 back in 2008 (same as Cambridge manager Sarah Wolf!) when she decided to check out the yoga studio down the street from her Somerville...

Getting to Know You: Becky Murphy

We are so excited to have added five brand new teachers to our regular schedule this spring, so we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to each of them. Today, we’re getting into Becky Murphy’s backstory.  Becky took her first yoga classes in college, though without fully connecting with what the practice had to offer.  When she moved to Somerville in 2013, her roommate suggested she check out the yoga studio a block from their apartment (“Spoiler  Alert: it was O2,” Becky said), but even then, her practice...

We are so excited to have added five brand new teachers to our regular schedule this spring, so we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to each of them. Today, meet the bright and bubbly Alissa Kossar.  Alissa had been doing yoga for about five or six years without great regularity, before her sister brought her to her favorite yoga studio, O2.  “At first I was hesitant and secretly hoping I wouldn’t like it, as I sometimes like to be contrarian with things my sister likes, but I quickly found that was impossible,”...

Mid-February Teacher Feature: Tina Millar

Teaching at O2 Since: 2017 Tina’s Thoughts about Second Series: “Second Series. Sigh. I have not yet taken the plunge and taken an Astanga Second Series class – I probably should. I hear it’s a bit of a laugh. It’s backbend city with a trip down arm balance lane and not one, but seven headstands. What’s not to love?! Since I teach Basics classes, I look forward to teaching the very foundations of poses not regularly practiced in class. And as a practitioner, let the fun begin!” Tina’s Current Teaching Schedule:...

Primary Series & Second Series of Astanga

Posted by on 5:04 pm in Featured | Comments Off on Primary Series & Second Series of Astanga

Primary Series & Second Series of Astanga

You, too, can experience Primary and Second Series of aṣtanga yoga! This practice is a set series of postures focused on forward folds and hamstring strength and flexibility and serves as the foundation for O2 Yoga.  During the last aṣtanga offering of the month we swap in Second Series, which builds on the work in our regular Primary Series classes, but focuses more on backbending and hip opening with some fun inversions, dynamic jumping postures, and, of course, the 7 headstands. These classes move very quickly and are recommended for more...
