INTRODUCTION TO ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA, The Primary Series. "My approach, as though by my teacher Matthew Sweeney, is to practice yoga as an holistic experience: asana, pranayama and meditation will be combined to help the student to experience the multiple aspect of the beauty of yoga." - Valentina

To attend the week we require a minimum of 6 months of yoga practice.
Injuries or special needs with their modified versions of the pose, will be explained also during the afternoon workshops. You will learn the Primary series through Navasana.
Classes with Valentina will improve agility, muscle tone, strength, flexibility and breath control, whilst connecting the body and mind. She strongly believes in yoga as a way of life, which can only be learned through experience, and is always happy to share her passion for yoga with others.
