Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga created by K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore India where the KPJAYI institute stands today and is often referred to as the original vinyasa vinyasa, the base of many of the different vinyasa practices we see today. With the use of Tristhana (the three places of attention or action: breathing system (pranayama), posture (asana), and looking place (drishti) ) a practitioner will work through a set sequence of postures know as the Primary, intermediate and advances series.
The standing postures of the Primary series are intelligently sequenced where through breath, asana, bandha and drishti, we get the opportunity to experience the meditative qualities of the practice. Join Katy for a three hour workshop where we will be exploring these standing postures. In this workshop we will be systematically breaking down each asana including Surya Namaskar A and B to Virabhadrasana B and learning the fundamentals of the asana including alignment, modifications and the practiced counts that allows the sequence to seamlessly flow together.
This workshop is open to all levels and practice styles and costs 40 Euros.
