The beauty and depth of the Ashtanga yoga method rely on the coordinated execution of different techniques. In this 3-hours workshop, the fundamental elements of the Ashtanga yoga will be introduced and explored in a systematic way. Using a set of practical exercises, the concepts of ujjayi breathing, bandhas and vinyasa will be organically integrated, creating the right conditions for a more mindful, sustainable and enjoyable practice. This workshop is a good opportunity for beginners as well as for more experienced practitioners to explore the fundamentals of the practice in a deeper level and from a fresh perspective.
