15 Dec INTRODUCTION OF ASHTANGA
“Vinyasa means breathing and movement system. For each movement, there is one breath.”
I take the practice of Ashtanga Yoga as a philosophy of life and believe that through this practice we can seek self-knowledge, achieving a better and happier way of living. I love teaching Mysore style and having contact with each student individually. During your practise you will learn to understand your body and you’ll be able to adjust your postures the best way you can.
This is the magical of teaching; every student in his own breath, understanding his own inner process. The teacher is an important tool in this path of self-knowledge, instructing and guiding the Ashtanga tradition that is passed from master to disciple.
The traditional method of teaching is through the self-practice, where the student learns the series gradually on your own pace. Learning yoga in this traditional method manner benefits the students on many levels. It is possible for one to gain independence and confidence in their own practice, as well, something truly becomes one’s own when they learn it by heart. It is through the daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga that we draw it into ourselves, understand it, and become proficient in its methods, thereby reaping its wide range of benefits. For this accomplished, a slow, dedicated and patient approach is best.
It will be my first time in The Netherlands and I am very happy to be part of the YogaFest Studio team and teach and help new students developing their yoga practice. I think it will be a nice challenge and an amazing experience for me.
I am going to run the Mysore program for 7 weeks, from 7 to 9 am. In January, I will also teach led class for beginners and a course of “Introduction of Ashtanga” in the evening time.
I hope students enjoy my classes,
