SANSKRIT CLASSES with Yvonne de Kock

Join Yvonne in these two 2hour classes to learn the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series asana names, and the opening and closing mantras. Sanskrit is a language of vibration. Pronouncing Sanskrit as an English word, means we are creating a completely different energy. Hence correct pronunciation is an important component of yoga practice. All proceeds will go to CSI (Camdeboo Sterilization Initiative). Yvonne has been a student of yoga for over 26 years, a senior Iyengar teacher and Sanskrit enthusiast. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn from such an inspiring and knowledgeable teacher, and practice real yoga by making a donation to an initiative that aims to reduce the suffering of domestic pets. All yoga students are welcome.

In-depth week with Mikko Seppinen

KPJAYI level 2 teacher
1 – 8 SEP 2017

We are very excited to announce that Mikko Seppinen, director of Mysore Yoga Copenhagen, Denmark, will join us again in Cape Town for a week of practice, pranaymama and workshops. Mikko stepped onto the yoga mat for the first time in Helsinki, Finland while studying social sciences, pursuing a career in journalism and PR, and burning through at least one pair of running shoes a year. The first practice challenged him in an entirely new way, and he wanted to find out why. Mikko started his daily visits to the mat and a few years later this exploration took him to Mysore, India. After yearly visits to the source of Ashtanga yoga Mikko received the Level 2 teaching authorization from KPJAYI. Teaching since 2003, Mikko wants to inspire the passion for the practice and to help students be sincere rather than serious.

In this workshop we will look at a few themes within the Yoga Chikitsa practice.

All students are welcome to come and explore the second series of Ashtanga yoga, Nādī śhodana. We will look at some troubleshooting areas as well as the gateway postures for a more in-depth look at why this practice cleanses the nervous system.
SUN 3 Sept  10:00 – 12:00    Breath, Bandhas & Pranayama
Breath is the most vital process in the entire body and at the very heart of the Ashtanga practice. In this class we will break down and build up the breathing technique and explore how to find the bandhas through correct breathing. You will learn a short basic pranayama sequence opening new possibilities within the yoga practice.
