In Astanga yoga the jump backs and jump throughs run through the seated postures and link them together. These transitional elements are sometimes frustrating, but they can become enjoyable and when understood properly they will deepen the experience of the practice. In this workshop we will explore the techniques of lifting up and jumping back into Chaturanga Dandasana and the mechanics of jumping through to sitting from Adho Mukha Svanasana. The workshop is suitable for all levels of practitioners. Come and lift yourself and your practice higher! Price kr. 200.
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.
We’ll round off Saturday and Sunday after Petri’s classes with chanting and meditation. Chanting is a centuries-old technique that connects humans with themselves and brings the mind to a state of calmness. When that happens, we find it easier to experience also the state of meditation. Wambui started chanting in Mysore with Dr. MA Jayashree and Professor Narasimhan in 2009. She has had the pleasure of studying various texts such as the Yoga Sutras with Vijaya Manja, Sri Mad Bhagavatam with Måns Broo and mantra japa with Eddie Stern. These sessions are included in the workshop with Petri.
