About The Event
This class series is a twelve week sequence of 75-minute workshops focusing on two to three asanas per class. These asanas will be explored in more depth than is often possible in a typical class. This series may be of interest to teachers, or anyone simply seeking a deeper understanding of these asanas and how they may be best suited to each individual. Though it is recommended to take the entire series, each class is available individually if desired.
Kim Schwartz was introduced to eastern philosophy as a child and began studying yoga in 1971 at age 18. In 1981 he met his Guru and began more formal studies in the yoga sutras and other aspects of yoga philosophy. Around that time he was also introduced to the Iyengar system of asana practice. In 1985 he was certified to teach yoga through the Temple of Kriya yoga. He was ordained a Swami in the Kriya lineage in 1986. He has taught ongoing yoga classes, teachers training programs and workshops here and abroad since that time.Though asana and pranayama have become primary disciplines, the philosophy of yoga is still at the heart of his practice and teaching. Kim is registered with Yoga Alliance as eRYT-500 and YACEP.
