Ashtanga Improvisation


This class is taught by:

Amynthas Franco

Franco was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga in January 2001 in San Francisco where he, following the tradition, committed to a daily Ashtanga Mysore practice and never looked back. Later in 2011, when practicing daily with senior teacher Tim Miller in Encinitas, he was introduced to the Ashtanga 3rd Series which remains a work in progress up to this day.
In 2007 Franco became a full-time teacher in the Bay Area where he worked for Yoga Works among other studios, including Ocean Yoga when it opened for business. After a few years away, in Encinitas followed by the East Coast, Franco returned to the South Bay and is now offering his ‘Ashtanga Improvisation’ classes once again at Ocean Yoga.
Come join Franco in this Ashtanga-inspired, comfortably heated, and non-groovy class where students will get a taste of the Ashtanga tradition in a slower pace while being exposed to some Iyengar yoga tricks to boost the student’s awareness and refinement. Franco’s classes usually offer a focus/topic to explore in a progressive way. Also, students should expect significant core work throughout the class in order to build the much needed strength for their practices.
