3 hour Special Workshop
Ashtanga Yoga Full Primary Series
Saturday, December 8th at 2pm, Stadionweg
Join us for the full Ashtanga Yoga Primary series workshop to explore full benefits of the practice.
Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic practice, a beautiful combination of breath and movement, which with time becomes almost like a moving meditation. It is complete, healing, and absolutely addictive. When practiced daily, it provides a mirror into ourselves, which may make us feel strong and powerful, or even humble at times.
The Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga is also known as Yoga Chikitsa. It is a yoga practice for everyone, not only for those who would like to do yoga to address a specific condition, but also for those in good health as it helps to maintain and revitalize the body at all levels.
We will explore all the asanas from the Primary series and more..
• We will look at how bringing awareness to our breath and linking it with movement can create a very beneficial and healing effect for our body and mind.
• You will learn how to can use the Primary Series to bring more strength, balance and flexibility to the body.
• We will also look at key asanas of the series and learn some new ways to approach the postures that are most challenging to students.
• We will then look at different techniques to help us experience the poses more deeply and truly feel their benefits, no matter what level of experience you are.
Teaching has always been a passion of Mark's. Directly after high school he became a swimming instructor and spent a year teaching swimming at the local pool. Then during his military service he also taught in boot camp and now he teaches yoga. His life changed completely after being introduced to yoga and he couldn't be more grateful for it. As many have said before him, yoga is a way of life, and now it is his. Working on his personal and spiritual growth are his my main focuses in life; sharing his experiences and the tools to better oneself is the other. Nothing is better than seeing the progress you provoke in someone else and that is what he continues to strive to do through yoga.
Kasia discovered yoga while working as a project manager in Amsterdam. She quickly got hooked, followed her first teacher training in Ashtanga in 2015 and started to share this beautiful practice with others herself. Coming to the mat every day is what brings her energy, grounds her and keeps her sane. It is also what helped her throughout her pregnancy, labor, and changes that came after. The impact of yoga on that life changing journey was so amazing that she decided to take Prenatal and HypnoBirthing Practitioner training, so she can share with others what gave her strength throughout that special time as well.
The workshop will last about three hours and there will be tea and snacks with the teachers at the end to answer any more questions that you may have or just to get to know each other a bit better.
