Learn the essentials of the Ashtanga yoga practice in a safe and supportive environment. In this six week beginner’s course, students will learn the basic technique for breathing and movement (vinyasa), meditative gazing (dristhi), and internal energy locks (bandha). When practiced simultaneously, the three places of attention (tristhana) allow the physical practice to be transformed into a moving meditation.
Students will be guided through the initial sequence of poses, and offered variations when necessary allowing the practice to be accessible to all. The course also teaches the philosophy of the Ashtanga yoga method and provides an introduction to the Mysore style of learning. Class size is limited to allow for more individual attention.
Upon completion, students will be ready to attend led Half Primary or Mysore class.
