Yoga in the Park with Michael Dotolo
June 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
We invite you to join us and Michael Dotolo for yoga in Wilcox Park on Fridays at 9:00am! We will be meeting on the back side of the pond.
About the class:
Sum Yoga is a more traditional practice of hatha yoga designed to sum up the actions of posture, breathing, and concentration. In this class, participants will engage in a slower flow of movements or asana, allowing them to develop a sense of anatomical alignment. Participants will also become familiar with various breathing techniques which will allow them to further understand the connection between breath control and cognitive/emotional activity. The goal is to develop mindfulness through direct efforts of physical and mental challenges. All levels welcome.
About Michael Dotolo:
Michael Dotolo is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with a Registered Yoga School (RYS). His instruction focuses on breath and alignment found in the lineage of a more traditional Hatha practice. In 2001, he began practicing an alignment-based vinyasa yoga in Brooklyn, NY. There, he was introduced to the notion that achieving a pose requires breath control. Both alignment and breath became critical aspects in his practice at the BKS Iyengar Institute while living in Holland. A more dedicating approach to yoga emerged while living in India for several years. There, Michael had the opportunity to understand yoga as an expression of culture. His formal teacher-training took place at the Yoga Institute in Mumbai, where yoga is taught as a holistic approach to physical and mental well-being through the simplified hatha techniques developed by the ashram founder, Shri Yogendra. After completing his formal training, Michael studied hatha with a multi-generational practitioner for over a year while living in Delhi. The course of these studies included developing techniques of pranayama and trataka. Supplemental education also came through participation in various workshops in India and Nepal.
