“Technique & Theory” is a theme-based class, covering technical and philosophical aspects of the practice of Astanga yoga in a practical and down-to-earth manner.The aim is to give additional tools to practice intelligently, with mindful awareness. By switching off the auto pilot and understanding the technique, purpose and context of what we do, we can ideally focus our inner gaze on ourselves and find an internal shift to presence. Normal memberships apply.

The workshop focuses on core and arm strength in a safe way. You will be propelled to go beyond your limits while staying in the integrity of the foundations of yoga. This class is for all levels of practitioners.
