In the early days of modern Astanga yoga practice in Mysore, India, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath taught in a tiny room in groups of maximum 12 students at a time. In this workshop you will experience the unique combination of two teachers and a small class. The weekend will be on a “first come first serve” basis and is limited to 12 people.
In order to nurture personal growth and deep learning, we will work to break down old patterns in order to build up a new kind of awareness of key concepts of the practice. The weekend includes in-depth workshops offering a variety of different perspectives to promote and support the practice and exploration of yoga.
Mikko Seppinen and Olle Bengtström
are long time friends, both breathing from the same yoga source. Their paths met ten years ago, both practicing under the guidance of Lino Miele and later Pattabhi Jois.
Please note: Participants should have a regular practice of Astanga yoga. The course is not designed to teach the sequence but rather to deepen an existing practice. Group is limited to 12 students and it’s filled up at a “first come, first serve” basis.
