Expect a week that cracks the heart open
and awakens the body in a new way!
Everyone can enjoy and benefit from the poses in the second series of Ashtanga yoga in an accessible and safe manner.
During this week we will discover the power of the intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga, to make our Ashtanga yoga practice more balanced and complete. The techniques will be thought according to the teachings of Manju Jois with a playful approach. Anna will adapt the teachings to the group present and we will apply the theme of the week to the morning classes (Ashtanga yoga) and more in depth in the afternoon sessions.
Learn how to feel and direct the flow of your energetic body to get a safe and joyous yoga practice. This is a week to connect deep within your being and to come home as an updated version of you. With simple exercises we will discover our ability to really feel what is going on in our bodies, to be able to rely on our own inner guidance and find spontaneous right alignment. We will also create moments of meditation and stillness to discover who we truly are.
Anna will adapt the teachings to the group present and we will apply the theme of the week to the morning classes (Ashtanga yoga) and more in depth in the afternoon sessions.
