Ashtanga Yoga Berlin - Retreat and Teacher Intensive by Ashtanga Yoga Berlin

Ashtanga Yoga Retreats with Grischa

Advanced Ashtanga for All!

Learn Purvottanasana assist @ Ashtanga Teacher Intensive Retreat - Adjustment TrainingGrischa’s Ashtanga retreats are for all enthusiasts who want to enter the deeper layers of the Ashtanga method. Learn how to use the ancient scriptures of Yoga as a gate opener for conntecting to your inner light of wisdom. We will explore all major layers of Yoga, six days in a row from early morning to the evening!

Mysore Style is the foundation of traditional Ashtanga practice. But
quality is key! As we all know Ashtanga is constructed to be
challenging, so individual guidance is crucial to overcome obstacles, to avoid the root causes of injuries and to understand the purpose of Yoga practice.

Experience the potential of  pranayama by directing your awareness
towards the subtle aspects of your nervous system and mental processes. Instead of “doing” mulabandha, you will learn how to use to understand “correct practice” from within and to become free from opinions, beliefs and wishful thinking.

Uniting with your inner teacher is practice. Sharing this experience with others is teaching. Blind faith and “orthodox” sectarianism are toxic twins.

Grischa Steffin from Ashtanga Yoga Berlin

Grischa has been teaching Ashtanga Mysore Style since 2001. The principles taught in his retreats are the result of a continuous analysis, refinement and improvement process.

His teaching is guided by the goals of Yoga as described in the classical scriptures such as the Yoga Sutra, Bhagavad Gita and other texts. Samadhi is the key tool to Yoga. It arises from selfless service (ishvara pranidhana) only, never from a hedonistic, selfish lifestyle.

In 2019 Grischa founded the “Yogis for Climate Justice” movement.
