INTRODUCTION TO ASHTANGA YOGA

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.

Time: 24.08.2019 (Saturday), 14.00 – 16.00
Place: Weggisgasse 31, 6004 Luzern
Price: 50 CHF (40 CHF for students)

The event will take place with the minimum of 5 participants. Please book your spot by sending me a message to 0793815755 or an email to info@ashtanga-luzern.ch.


STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY OF THE SHOULDERS

In the last workshop we explored different movements of the hip joint, this time we will have a closer look at the shoulders. Tight shoulders are a limitation for almost everyone who starts yoga, but they can also be a reason why advanced students can’t do more difficult poses. Others might struggle with poses that require strength and stability of this joint, like planks, arm balances and inversions. In this workshop I will give you tools to improve both strength and flexibility of your shoulders. We will do different preparations that you can incorporate into your daily practice and we will analyse alignment in some poses you already know from the class. We will work through step-by-step progressions of the poses so yogis of all levels will be able to benefit from the workshop.

Time: 14.09.2019 (Saturday), 11.00 – 13.00
