Yogi In Residence - Marco Rojas - August 7-16, 2019

Marco is a messenger of yoga. His teachings follow the Krishnamacharya tradition. He trained to be a teacher under the guidance of Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty, creators of YogaWorks, in Los Angeles in 2003. For the last sixteen years, Marco has cultivated a vital and rewarding yoga experience throughout New York City in studios such as YogaWorks, ISHTA, Pure Yoga, and Equinox. He practices at the Iyengar Institute of New York.

The class is an inward journey using the science of Raja Yoga. Explore Sun Salutations with bandhas and ujjayi breath, fundamentals of the Ashtanga yoga system taught by the late Pattabhi Jois. Follow intelligent sequencing from the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. The poses are held to explore expansion and extension and to allow the student time to incorporate Iyengar principles of precision and alignment. The teaching adjusts to the individual, a belief practiced in Viniyoga. This transcendental method of involution to achieve evolution will bring us in contact with our layers of existence, koshas, to realize awareness and consciousness necessary to experience sukkha.

The teacher should be clear, clever, confident, challenging, caring, cautious, constructive, courageous, comprehending, creative, completely devoted and dedicated to knowing the subject, considerate, conscientious, critical, committed, cheerful, chaste, and calm. Teachers must be strong and positive in their approach. They must be affirmative to create confidence in their pupils, and negative within their own practice and attitudes. Teachers must always be learning.
