INTRO TO ASHTANGA YOGA
2 hrs / 25.01 / 17.00 - 19.00
Registration opens JAN 2019
>>> This traditional and dynamic yoga method is an intelligent sequence of poses that encompasses the body & mind as a whole. In Ashtanga, it is the central role of the breath that initiates, carries, and moves the body and mind. The ashtanga yoga sequence (first the Primary Series) is designed to promote vitality, strength and flexibility in body & mind.
In this 2h workshop you will be introduced to the principles of this unique practice and develop a basic understanding behind the philosophy and benefits of the practice.
You will experience the foundations of this method such as ujjayji breath, drsthi (gaze), alignment of breath and movement in the sun salutations and fundamental poses. We will go through an in-depth breakdown of the Sun Salutations and Standing poses.
We will also explore some of the softer, more yin aspects of this traditional practice, hopefully helping to demystify and perhaps even begin to change ashtanga’s highly yang reputation.
This workshop is a foundation for a safe and conscious practice and is ideal for students new to the ashtanga yoga system and for those who want to explore a little more.
