Marika Ashtanga Yoga - Autumn Introduction

2021 Introduction to Ashtanga Mysore Course

Ashtanga vinyasa yoga is a dynamic practice which synchronises breath with movement. The form is based on a set sequence of postures which are designed to be practiced regularly and committed to memory so that the practitioner can move their focus internally and eventually turn their practice into a moving meditation.

Mysore style class is the traditional way Ashtanga is taught, and allows each practitioner to practice at their own pace with their own breath with individual instruction from the teacher. The emphasis is on empowering each student with their own practice rather than being led as a group.

This is aimed at complete beginners, those who practice half primary series, or those who have had a long break from yoga and would like to get back into practice.

Dates: 4 sessions – Mon 25/Tue 26/Thur 28/ Fri 29 Oct (No class on Wednesday 27 Oct) 

Time: 5-6pm

Venue: Tomo Niseko

Price: ¥4000
