Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga workshop

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  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.

Backbending is an important and often very challenging part of the practice – it requires not only flexibility, but also emotional readiness to open and to overcome the fear associated with those deep movements. 
In the workshop we will explore different preparations for backbending to open our chest, hips and the shoulders. Among other poses we will learn how to safely do Urdhva Dhanurasana, the main backbend of Primary Series. I will also give a few tips to those who are learning to drop back. We will conclude the workshop with a sequence of therapeutic backbends that can help you relieve lower back pain.

Teacher: Martyna Syguda is an authorized level 2. Ashtanga Yoga teacher and a psychologist. She started practicing yoga when she was 12 years old and since then maintained a daily practice. Martyna did five extended trips to India, where she practiced Primary, Intermediate and Advanced series with her teacher Sharath Jois.
