We have added two first “Yoga Lab” mini-workshops covering the practices, techniques and philosophy of yoga. ”Yoga Lab” workshops take place on Saturdays and cost kr 150.
Pattabhi Jois used to say ‘Astanga Yoga is a breathing practice, the rest is just bending’. Correct breath is the key to the practice. Breath leads us to understanding bandha, and every pose grows out of its root, mula bandha. Applying breath and bandha correctly results to lightness and ease to the practice, and brings the mind naturally towards concentration and stillness.
Workshop is open for all levels with established practice.
Hips are the junction between our upper body and legs. In the practice of yoga the hip-opening poses can be challenging, but they offer a variety of physical and emotional benefits. In this workshop we will create a greater understanding of the anatomy of hips and have an in-depth look at some of the key hip-opening postures of Astanga practice.
The workshop is suitable for all levels from beginners to advanced practitioners, as there are always options to lessen or increase the challenge.
