WORKSHOPS on Saturday, 9 March 2019

7:00 to 8:30  PRANAYAMA AND BEYOND, PART 1
Breath is the most vital process in the entire body and at the very heart of the Ashtanga yoga practice. This workshop helps us to better understand our breath and provides tools to move towards the fourth limb of yoga: pranayama. You will learn a basic pranayama routine, that can open the door to new possibilities within the yoga practice. This is a two part workshop. Sign up  – Early Bird R750/ R850 (part 1&2)

10:00 to 12:00  BACK TO BASICS
Our senses are constantly being stimulated and our focus going outward. To achieve progress in yoga we have to focus inward. To do this, Ashtanga uses the Tristhana method which consists of asana, breathing and gazing points. In this led class we’ll take an in-depth look at these foundational elements, so that they can blossom into an integrated yoga practice. This workshop is ideal for completely new students. Sign up – Early Bird R550/ R650

12:30 to 14:30 JUMPING AROUND
This class will provide techniques to access the sometimes daunting part of the Ashtanga system, the jump-back and jump-through. The jump backs and jump throughs run like a thread through the seated postures and link them together. We will explore techniques to build strength and stamina for this transitional element of the practice. Join us for some challenging fun! Sign up  – Early Bird R550/ R650 

WORKSHOPS on Sunday, 10 March 2019

7:30 to 9:00  PRANAYAMA AND BEYOND, PART 2
Pranayama is a fine science and a subtle art which requires time and practice to be truly understood. This workshop expands the themes covered in the ”Breath and pranayama” session and is a great way to get a full set of tools to begin practicing pranayama or to refine an ongoing practice. In addition to learning and practicing the basic techniques, the philosophy of pranayama as a path to meditation will be discussed. Sign up  – Early Bird R750/ R850 (part 1&2) 

11:30 to 13:30  1% THEORY
“99% practice, 1% theory” – Sri K Pattabhi Jois. What is the aim of yoga? What are the so-called eight limbs of yoga? How can they help my practice, or life? Most of us enter yoga eager to learn the “asanas,” physical postures. As we deepen our practice, we realise that it is only the third of eight (ashta) limbs (anga) that form what we call the ”Ashtanga yoga” system. This down-to-earth workshop gives an insight into a key philosophical teaching behind yoga and explore their applications within our day-to-day life. Sign up  – Early Bird R550/ R650 

14:00 to 16:00  HIP HIP HOORAY!
Hips are the junction between our upper body and legs. Tight hips can cause many issues not only in our hip joints but also in our knees, ankles, lower back, spine, and shoulders. Hip-opening poses can be challenging but working intelligently with the hips can also be energising and rejuvenating, offering the opportunity for great emotional release. How to work with the hips – all welcome. Sign up  – Early Bird R550/ R650
