Ashtanga, Chikitsa and Pranayama.
28th October. First part (09:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.) Second part (12:00 to 13:00)
Ashtanga is a dynamic style of yoga which emerged from India in the middle of the twentieth century. It has become one of the most popular styles of yoga in the west due to its physical nature, strenghthing our bodies. The core philosophy is that all movements are based on the constant rhythm of the students breathing. Each inhalation and exhalation of air is matched by a movement, taking the student between fixed poses (Asanas) The gurus taught us that breathing brings energy into the body, known as the Pranayama, powering our practice. The movements are connected by different Asanas, like points on a flowing curve. More Asanas are added to the sequence as the student makes progress, which will in turn form the complete first series.(Chikitsa) Ashtanga is associated with its close synchronization of movements and breathing. On the course you will learn the many various aspects that make up Astanga, such as Dristis, which is the skill of focusing your gaze on certain points to improve balance and posture whilst in movement. And Pranayama the practice of properly synchronized breathing which increases your energy levels. It will also help you achieve a deeper level of relaxation whilst exercising, helping rid your mind of unwelcome thoughts, and improving your physical performance.
The goal of the workshop is to guide our students through the first series, and advance their breathing techniques, which often brings sense of wellbeing and happiness. The workshop will be in two parts
Part One: Series one, Chikitsa (Asanas)
