Trouble shooting areas posture, breath, gaze) into each movement, promoting a calm center and accessing sense withdrawal, known as pratyāhāra.

Primary Series in Detail
Yoga Chikitsa Primary Series, otherwise known as, Yoga Chikitsa or yoga therapy, is the foundation all the sequences of the Ashtanga Yoga system are built upon and thus highly important. Not only is Primary Series the most important series but also preps the body/mind to open to greater states of awareness, concentration and stability. Learn to find steadiness and ease within each posture as we further investigate the intelligence behind the sequencing and the important application of dristhi, bandhas and breath.
In addition, special attention will be focused on moving with conscious awareness, proceeding with conscious breath, otherwise known as vinyāsa. Trouble shooting areas of instability that may be present, learn how to thoroughly build strength, with care and attention, building upon internal alignment. This workshop is appropriate for new and established practitioners and is broken up into two workshop sessions.
10h00-12h30 (2.5 hours) Primary Series – 1st half, beginning with Dandasana and working up to Navasana.
14H30-17h00 (2.5 Hours) Backbending with Ease: Liberate the Spine
The paradox of backbending is that we must be firm and soft at the same time, uniting the energy of strength and surrender. Learn the basic components of backbending with integrity to the natural flow of the body. In addition, learn to understand the concept of active release. When actively releasing, we experience the use of grounding mechanisms to establish the downward flow of energy while fully utilizing the breath to then be able to expand and deepen. In this workshop learn the foundational techniques that allow the body to find its depth and strength while at the same time letting go. For all levels.
Sunday 22 Nov.
10h00-12h00 (2 hours) Mysore Style Selfpractice
14h30-17h00 (2.5 hours) Dynamic Transitions
Learn the dynamics of flight. In this class experience helpful techniques accessing the sometimesdaunting part of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, the jump-back and jump-through. Though challenging, need not be elusive to the practice, and believe it or not, the primary series prepares one to do so. Time will be taken to break down the parts and give useful tools to build inner strength and allow vinyasas to naturally become fluid and graceful. Building upon the jump through we will also experiment with jumping into and exiting out of postures such as bhujapidasana, bakasana, tittibahasana, astavakrasana, and vrksasana for example. Open to all who enjoy a little challenge and fun experimentation.
