Astanga yoga utilizes a three-fold approach called Tristana. It consists of correct breathing technique, the posture/asana and dhristi, gazing point. Through this method practitioners develop control of the senses and a deep awareness of themselves. During this session we’ll take a look at the foundational elements of the practice, so that they can blossom into an integrated yoga practice. Everyone is welcome! Price 200 kr.
In this workshop we will look at a selected themes within the Yoga Chikitsa practice. We will explore the ‘gateway’ poses and refine some of the vinyasas for a more in-depth look at this therapeutic series. Special attention will be given on how to work with tight hips, as well as how to protect your shoulders, knees, and lower back as you develop your practice. This class is for everyone. Full primary series practice is not a requirement. Price 200 kr.
This class will provide techniques to access the sometimes daunting part of the Ashtanga system, the jump-back and jump-through. They run like a thread through the seated postures and link them together. This class will explore techniques to build strength and stamina for this transitional element of the practice. We will also experiment with jumping into and exiting out of other postures. Join us for some challenging fun! Open for all levels. Price 200 kr.
