DETAILS of WEEK-END CLASSES & WORKSHOPS:

 

SATURDAY:

9.00 – 11.00 – TRADITIONAL SANSKRIT COUNTED LED FULL PRIMARY SERIES

David and Jelena will lead you through Ashtanga’s Primary Series with the traditional Sanskrit count, and include some detailed instructions along the way. Prepare to work very hard!

13.00 – 15.00 – workshop: BREATHING MOVING SYSTEM

In Ashtanga, vinyasa means breathing/moving system. More specifically, it also refers to each counted movements that are done in our practice. When properly understood, the vinyasa technique becomes a powerful moving meditation. 

15.30 – 17.30 – workshop: POSTURES & COUNTING FOR SURYA NAMASKARAS

Learn the Sanskrit count and exact vinyasa for Ashtanga’s Sun Salutations. The workshop will also offer a detailed breakdown of the alignment and work involved for each posture in Suryanamaskara A & B.

 

SUNDAY:

08.00 – tbd – MYSORE STYLE

Mysore is the traditional format for practicing Ashtanga Yoga. Led classes are a fantastic way to learn about the vinyasa, but Mysore-style is where you follow your own breath and deepen your focus and meditation skills. David and Jelena lead one of the world’s largest mysore programs at their home studio, http://www.ashtangatoronto.com   (Shifts will be communicated closer to the event)

13.00h – 15.00h – workshop: FUNDAMENTALS – VINYASA & ALIGNMENT

Take a deep and detailed look at the alignment and actions of Ashtanga’s opening sequence. Study the exact vinyasas that connect each of the postures, and learn new ways to deepen the work and progression of your daily practice.

15.30h – 17.30h – workshop: ASHTANGA PRIMARY SERIES’ TRANSITIONS

Vinyasas are the essence of the Ashtanga Sadhana. They provide a bridge to carry our focus between asanas, and also build a purifying heat in the body that is said to boil the blood. This workshop will go over all the different Primary Series vinyasas in close detail.
