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.

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 that open our chest, hips and the shoulders, which are often limiting us from doing more advanced poses. We will learn how to safely, enter and deepen Urdhva Dhanurasana, the main backbend of the Primary Series. I will also introduce a sequence of therapeutic backbends that will help those who experience lower back pain.
