During this workshop we’ll cover the basics of Ashtanga Yoga. The workshop is a great opportunity for practitioners of all levels to understand or revise the different aspects of the practice on a deeper level. We will cover during the session for example the basic philosophy behind the practice (Why we do it? What does Ashtanga mean?), why do we apply the breathing technique and how to do it correctly, and how and why to work with the bandhas and dhristi. Price 200 kr. Pre-registration is required.
We are happy to welcome Petri Räisänen back to MYC in May 2016 for a 4-day Mysore workshop. Petri is an internationally known and respected Ashtanga yoga teacher, co-owner and director of Ashtanga Yoga Helsinki and author of two Ashtanga yoga books. His Mysore teaching gives you an opportunity to experience the wholeness of the practice, and his teachings aims to lead to an experience of deep concentration (pratyahara) and meditation (dhyana). This workshop is suitable for all levels of students with an established Mysore style Ashtanga yoga practice.
These primary and intermediate series workshops with Petri Räisänen on Saturday May 7 and Sunday May 8 2016 will follow Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’s Ashtanga Yoga vinyasa, alignment, counting and adjustment method. This will deepen the understanding of the practice and give a clear view about the system of Ashtanga Yoga. With clarity in the vinyasa and Asana alignment the Yoga practice will reach it’s original essence. In 2005 and 2007 Petri wrote books about primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga, based on his in-depth interviews with Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois.
