This teaching intensive will offer a comprehensive overview of Ashtanga Yoga in a small, intimate group, personally guided by Gerald Disse, Linda Munro and guest teacher Cecile Payne.
The training is recognized internationally. Every year there are people from all corners of the world coming together to share and go deeper in their mutual passion for yoga. We also offer a 300-hour intermediate training.
The 200+ hour training is based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary series, which gives a solid base to any dynamic asana practice since most forms of contemporary flowing yoga styles, have evolved out of Ashtanga.
We go over every asana in strict detail; discovering the basic movements which are universal alignment techniques one can apply to all the Ashtanga series, exploring different ways to modify each position with and without props, learning the contraindications for each asana and alternatives to achieve a similar outcome, how to do hands-on adjustments and especially exploring the anatomical understanding to keep each yoga student safe in the poses to encourage a life time practice.
In addition, what is unique in our training is that all the practitioners will finish the training with a solid kriya and pranayama practice. Every morning we add on to the pre-asana practices so that these highly effective and deep practices are taught correctly and safely. They appear subtle however, their subtleness is deceiving therefore, kriya and pranayama need to be taught with intelligence and awareness. Lastly, as the ‘real’ yoga is beyond the physical aspect there is a great emphasis put on yogic philosophy and daily living to ensure that we all remember to put in that “1% theory” and apply it to all aspects of our lives; on and off the yoga mat and meditation cushion!
