Cheerful Ashtanga yoga teacher Anu found her way to us to Väki, and she has been teaching several classes and few courses with us. With Anu´s guidance, you can start Ashtanga yoga from scratch and you don´t need to have any previous experience of it. Our basic course will include 8 hours of guided ashtanga, where you will learn little bit history, some yoga philosophy and of course needed asanas. Ashtanga yoga will teach you more about body awareness and respecting your boundaries. Course starts with intensive weekend, where you will get basics of ashtanga yoga, and this will be followed by 2 ashtanga yoga classes each 75 – 90 minutes to practice learned skills with Anu´s guidance.
Weekend´s schedule is roughly:
- History & Philosophy
- Ujjayibreathing technique
- Sun salutation (when, why and who)
- Asana series
- Drishti – eye and mind focus in asana
- Relax and ending mantra
Focus is to learn why we do certain techniques or details and how all these come together in Ashtanga yoga. In this basic course we learn 1. series (chikitsa), which will be memorized to ease the transition to Mysore classes.
