Venue: Ashtanga Yoga Malmö
Foundation (beginner's) courses cover the basics of Ashtanga yoga and are suitable for complete beginners as well as those who practice other types of yoga but would like to learn Ashtanga thoroughly from scratch. The course runs for 8 weeks and starts on Saturday 1 October 2022 at 10am.
All participants are encouraged to attend Mysore classes in parallel to the course. One FREE Mysore class per week is included in the course price. Read more about Mysore classes under class descriptions.
We begin with a short introduction to yoga philosophy followed by a gradual learning of the Sun Salutations, the standing asanas (postures) of the Ashtanga yoga primary series as well as some finishing postures. We focus in particular on linking breath and movement in the so called vinyasa krama system. We also cover Bandha (energy locks in the body) and Drishti (focus). Most importantly, you will learn how to practice and move safely to avoid injury and to build both strength and flexibility over time.
Time and date: Saturdays 10-11:30, 8 sessions starting Saturday 1 October 2022 (we pause during the Autumn holidays)
Price: 1250 SEK (student and senior discounts are available)
