As an Ashtanga Ambassador David bases his teachings on the idea that ‘Anyone can take practice’, a core idea in the teachings of Pattabhi Jois. In this weekend workshop we’ll investigate specific aspects of the Ashtanga Yoga practice in detail. The workshop topics are: ‘Ashtanga Foundations 1: The Five Allies in Surya Namaskara’, ‘Ashtanga Foundations II and III – Standing Sequence, Seated Postures & Dynamic Transitions of Primary Series’,‘Precision, Purification & Pranayama’, ‘Asana Kitchen’ and ‘Intro to Second Series and Pranayama’.
The workshop is suitable for anybody with an established Ashtanga yoga practice, basic understanding of at least the first half of the Primary Series and a motivation to learn.
