What is Mahāpatha Yoga Popup?
Mahāpatha Popup yoga classes are weekly 2-hour long yoga classes, taught by Douglas Johnson E-RYT 500, YACEP, and held every Tuesday and Thursday at Solstice Urban Retreat Center in Virgina-Highland from 7 pm to 9 pm.
What Style of Yoga Is It?
Classes rotate between Yin (stretch), Yang (strength), Hatha (traditional), Five Rites Flow (yin/yang), and Vinyasa (flow) style classes. Be sure to check our Mindbody Online schedule to see which class is available on any given Tuesday or Thursday. If you are new to the popup you are encouraged to try each class at least once as they are quite different from one another.
What Makes Mahāpatha Yoga Popup so Special?
Each class is basically a workshop with most classes starting with about 15-20 minutes of kirtan (chanting Sanskrit mantras with music), followed by about an hour of posture practice (asanas). Then, most classes conclude by exploring advanced ‘kundalini awakening’ yoga techniques like Yoga Nidra, Pranayama, Bandha, Mantra, Mudra, Dharana, and Dhyana (meditation). We do however also have monthly special long-form asana classes where the focus is on spending more time on asana as well as group-meditation.
How Much is It?
Drop-ins are $25, but various discounts are offered for first-time students as well as students who purchase multiple classes. Please check our Mindbody Online site for the latest discounts and pricing.
How Do I Sign Up?
To attend class, simply sign-up in advance with Mindbody Online so we know you are coming, and so you can take care of payment in advance. The studio we rent does not have a reception area so all financial transactions must be handled in advance online.
