Ashtanga Weekend Workshop

5 Dec & 6 Dec 2020

9AM - 3PM

£50 per day or £100 for the full weekend

Philippa Asher

From London, Philippa is one of a few Ashtanga yoga practitioners in the world (and the only British woman), to be Certified to teach the traditional Ashtanga yoga method, by Sri K Pattabhi Jois.

She has learned the Primary, Intermediate, Advanced A and Advanced B Series directly from Guruji and Sharath (at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India) and shares the Ashtanga system, internationally.

The Sanskrit-Counted Led Primary Series class (where all practitioners follow the exact count of the teacher, move and breathe together and are adjusted when necessary), is a fantastic opportunity to learn the Sanskrit asana names, the precise vinyasa counts and iron out any uncertainties within the asana practice. Afterwards pranayama techniques such as rechaka, puruaka, kumbhaka and nadi shodhana will be explored, culminating in dhyana (meditation).

On the Sunday morning, following the traditional ‘guided self-practice’ method, you will have the opportunity to deepen and develop your asana technique and practice (with one of the few KPJAYI Certified teachers), whilst being guided through methods of approaching the more challenging postures.

The afternoon workshops will focus on refining asana technique, examining asanas that the group would like to dissect and opening/strengthening the body, so that the seemingly impossible postures can reveal themselves!
