Program:

Introduction

Saturday, March 9, 2024
12.30-16.00

The week starts with a thorough introduction to the Astanga yoga method and the three pillars on which the method rests; breathing, mindfulness and yoga poses. You gain an understanding of what the purpose of yoga is and how you can benefit from it in your life. You learn to breathe deeply, calmly and present, and to use the breath to move in and out of the yoga poses. You learn to coordinate movements with breathing and how to work with the combination of stability and relaxation in yoga poses.

At teh workshop the focus is on the primary poses of the Astanga yoga practice; the sun salutation and the fundamental poses. You learn to use the methoed and techniques to move in the sun salutation with a deep, calm and present breath. You gain an understanding of stability and focus in your yoga practice and strategy for how you work purposefully and with regard to your possibilities and limitations.

Mysore style is the traditional one-to-one way of learning Astanga yoga. Students learn the positions one at a time, and training and teaching can therefore be individually adapted to the individual student's circumstances. In the workshop you will gain an understanding of the method and your personal practice program.
