Service Description

Introduction to Ashtanga Program is an all level program. Whether you are a complete beginner or have some past yoga experience these classes cover the basic principles of the Ashtanga methodology, physicality and history over a set period of time. The classes will focus on foundation postures, the opening sequence to all 6 series in detail and move into the first half of Primary series as your body allows. This program offers an excellent foundation to start your individual or Mysore style practice, move into any traditional Ashtanga class or take you to a new level in your vinyasa style classes. ​ ​The Workshop classes are designed to deepen your understanding of the Ashtanga method by dissecting and taking a deeper look at the posture and explore variations in your body, ask questions and begin to learn about the method and history of Ashtanga. These workshop days will move through deepening your understanding of forward folds, hip openers, lotus postures, twists, backbends & headstands. Led Ashtanga class nights will introduce you to progressively learn the breath count and sequencing of half of the primary series of Ashtanga. This class will encourage memory of the sequence, as well develop endurance, strength and proper breath and movement connections building on what has been learnt in the workshops and (semi-led) Mysore nights in the program. ​ The semi-led Mysore style nights of the course will prepare you to safely practice the ashtanga system for your body, start to build your own personal practice and develop a collaborative relationship with the teachers. This class will provide you the space and opportunity to apply your workshop and led class learnings to your practice, moving at your own pace. Describe your service here. What makes it great?
