Join us to learn the fundamentals of the Ashtanga yoga practice in a slow, safe and comprehensive manner. This structured course is perfect for complete beginners to yoga or those who would like to deepen their understanding of the Ashtanga yoga system.
With a set sequence of postures and a unique system of breath synchronised movement, this style of yoga creates heat in the body, making you sweat, allowing you to move freely and release toxins. A regular Ashtanga yoga practice brings strength and flexibility in the body and focus and clarity in the mind.
In this six week course you will learn:
— Learn Sun Salutations A & B;
— Explore the fundamental standing postures;
— Be introduced to some of the seated postures with modifications if required;
— Learn the correct breathing techniques;
— Experience a little of the Mysore style approach to Ashtanga;
— Begin to understand the philosophy of the Ashtanga yoga system.
Over the course we’ll break down the sequence of postures. Each week we’ll work on a bit more of the sequence building on prior weeks and you’ll be given homework to practise between classes! Once you’ve completed the course you’ll be ready to attend any of the regular classes on the timetable.
Ashtanga yoga will complement and enhance any other training or exercise programs you are undertaking. It’ll help you move and breathe more efficiently, feel more relaxed and centred. It’s physically challenging and will increase strength and improve flexibility — it’ll be the best thing you do this year!
We recommend that you attend all classes in the course.
Spaces are limited.
