screen-shot-2017-05-01-at-13-03-32

 

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 philosophy and how to integrate yoga into your daily life. You will also have a chance to ask your questions about the method.

In the practical part we will work on the beginning of Primary Series, which is the first and the most therapeutic sequence of the Ashtanga Yoga system. 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.

We will discuss how to apply the knowledge about the sutras to your daily yoga practice and life outside of the mat. You will also be able to ask your questions regarding yoga practice and philosophy.

The lecture will not be focused specifically on the Ashtanga Yoga practice, students of all traditions are welcome to join the lecture.
