Primary and intermediate series workshops with Petri

We are happy to welcome Petri Räisänen back to MYC for a 4-day Mysore workshop and additional in-depth workshops on primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga, Saturday May 7 and Sunday May 8 2016.

Mysore Yoga CPH - Astanga yoga - Ashtanga yoga - Petri Räisänen - Copenhagen - KøbenhavnThese in-depth workshops about technique and philosophy of primary and intermediate series 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.

Petri wrote two books in 2005 and 2007, Ashtanga Yoga in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Nadi Sodhana, from his interviews with Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois. The workshops will follow the vinyasa system taught by Pattabhi Jois around that time.
