The workshop will be an introduction to both theoretical and practical aspects of Ashtanga Yoga. It will provide a solid foundation for those who want to start or who already attended some classes, but would like to learn more about the method.

In the first part of the workshop I will explain the origins of the practice, its basic rules, philosophy and how to integrate yoga into your daily life. In the practical part we will have a closer look at the three main techniques – the ujjayi breath, asana and drishti. We will work on the beginning of Primary Series, which is the first and the most therapeutic sequence of the Ashtanga Yoga system, paying extra attention to the alignment of the asanas. Apart from the poses, you will learn how to connect the breath, the movement, and the point of focus so that your practice will not only develop strength and flexibility, but also focus and the feeling of internal peace.

Date: 23.11.2019 (Saturday), 11.00-13.00

NADI SHODHANA – INTERMEDIATE SERIES OF ASHTANGA YOGA

screen-shot-2017-09-27-at-10-48-16

In this workshop we will have a look at the Second Series of Ashtanga Yoga. After cleansing the body in the Primary Series, Nāḍi-Śodhana is clearing and calming down the nervous system. The sequence works on the channels along our spine – it starts with backbends and continues to deep forwards bends, strength postures and inversions. After a short theoretical introduction we will move through the main poses of the sequence, exploring the alignment and possible preparations for more difficult poses.

I will show you different variations of each poses, making them accessible to yogis of all levels. A basic understanding of the Ashtanga Yoga method and some experience in the First Series would be advised though. You can just contact me if you are not sure if the workshop is for you!
