“TaijiFit is not just an exercise – it’s an experience! It combines the best elements of fitness, meditation and the ancient martial art of Taiji (Tai Chi). Feel for yourself the Mind/Body connector we call FLOW. TaijiFit™ is Mindfulness in Motion.
When you take a Taijifit class, you find yourself moving your body with the grace and confidence of the ancient Taiji masters who learned the secret of balancing yin and yang – strength with beauty, power with peace, endurance with flow. There is no routine or choreography to memorize or ‘get right.’ The Taijifit instructor will lead you into the Flow using the Qi Cueing method developed by David-Dorian Ross.”
Yoga Philosophy Talks
Yoga Philosophy Talks continue on the 2nd and 4th Thursday evening of every month. We’ll cover a variety of yoga philosophy and history topics. Investment: $15 per talk (or $40 for any 4 Talks) payable through Venmo/Erin-Mathiason or paypal.me/taichiyogaonline.
Yoga Philosophy Talks: A 6-Week Exploration of Patanajali’s Yoga Sutras
Wednesdays, September 23 – October 28, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. MT
Investment: $90. Minimum of 5 participants to run the session.
Whether you’ve studied only the eight-limbs of yoga, haven’t studied the Yoga Sutras at all, or are ready for a review, join Erin Mathiason ERYT YACEP for this 6-week series. Learn:
• how to “unpack” the sutras
• the Western history of the text and why it’s important to our practice today
• how Patanjali defines Yoga as well as other key concepts
• Classical Sankhya philosophy and the tattvas
• the 8-limbs of Ashtanga Yoga from both an ancient and a modern perspective
• why an entire chapter/pada is devoted to the siddhis, yogic powers
• how Patanjali’s philosophy compares and contrasts to Buddhism and the ascetic traditions
Participants are invited to read any complete translation of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras during this 6-week study. We’ll use multiple translations throughout the course.
Yoga Philosophy Talks: The Theosophists
September 24, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. MT
Learn about how Theosophy and Western occultism are part of our yoga history (as well as the history of New Thought). Mohandas Gandhi was introduced to the Bhagavad Gita by London Theosophists and was given the title “Mahatma” by Annie Besant. Anusara Yoga Founder John Friend had a “love of magic and Madame Blavatsky” (according to the New York Magazine article, “Karma Crash,” April 15, 2012). Listen to stories about Madame Blavatsky, Annie Besant, Colonel Henry Steel Olcott, C.W. Leadbeater and Krishnamurti. Learn about how Theosophy influenced our modern yoga practice.
