Ashtanga Essentials Workshop
Bringing your knowledge and understanding of the eight limbs of yoga to a higher level.
This workshop is dedicated to all students who already practiced Ashtanga Yoga in a Mysore class and would like to deepen their knowledge regarding the other aspects of the practice. On and far beyond the mat.
It doesn't really matter if you have been practicing Ashtanga for two months or for ten years. Each of us at some point feels ready to intake more knowledge regarding the practice of Ashtanga (astau-anga) - the Eight Limbed Yoga.
"When the breath moves, the mind moves. When the breath is still, the mind is still. By thus controlling the breath, the yogi attains steadiness."
- Svatmarama, Hatha Yoga Pradipika
It is much easier to learn how to control the breath, than how to control the mind. Most often, the mind moves against our own will and follows the innate thoughts and desires. Ashtanga Yoga method encourages us to, by working with the body and the breath, gain understanding of the deeper layers of the mind or consciousness known in yoga as Citta.
Despite Ashtanga Yoga can be considered as a dynamic and physically challenging practice, the main focus lies in understanding of its breathing-moving pattern.
Join Tattva John & Marta Magdalena for this weekend immersion into Ashtanga Essentials to understand the connection of the inner and the outer world - done through the avenue of the vinyasa based “moving meditation”.
