One way to approach yoga asana is to focus on the five myofacial sheaths, or the lines that connect the muscle chains in the back body, side body, front body, spiral body, and core body.

Using both classical yoga asana and somatic exercises, we will explore these sheaths to sequentially open the body and prepare it for the deeper work of finding stillness and calmness.

There is no minimum requirement for proficiency, but all participants should have a good sense of their limitations and inform the instructor about specific injuries before class.

Dan Boyne, RYI-500, has studied and practiced mind body disciplines for over two decades, including various forms of yoga, martial arts, and dance. In the yoga world, he has been inspired by the following teachers: Richard Freeman, Patricia Walden, Tias Little, Ana Forrest, Barbara Benaugh, Paulie Zink, and Arthur Kilmurray. He teaches an"eclectic vinyasa" practice, where students are encouraged to explore different ways of approaching the postures in an effort to make them more sensible and accessible. Dan is also pursuing a master's in theology at the Harvard Divinity School, with an emphasis on the philosophical and historical roots of yoga, and he is a level III reiki practitioner.
