Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga: The Complete Fundamentals Workshop
Ashtanga Yoga is a vigorous style of yoga that promotes health and overall wellbeing using breathing, postures and gaze points to create a sensation of presence on the here and now. This system has been used for centuries by the Indian sages to heal decease and guide man on his path into illumination. Been a modular and progressive yoga style, it builds upon itself and is completely adaptable to the practitioner’s level, which mean the practice of Ashtanga Yoga truly becomes yours, and the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga, or Yoga Chikitsa, is the ideal place to start. We’ll take a look at what is Ashtanga Yoga and how does this method really works. Looking closely into our breathing, we will learn to coordinate movement with breath into vinyasa. We’ll learn and what are bandhas and how to effectively use them. Finally after learning our gaze points we will look into the Sun Salutations with their correct vinyasa counts and we’ll learn how to get into and out of all the fundamental postures with their correct distances and alignment.
