About Grischa's Ashtanga Retreats

Grischa‘s Ashtanga retreats are very intense – and very complete. Day by day you will deepen your pranayama experience and improve your Ashtanga practice in the Mysore sessions. In the workshops sessions you will learn how to avoid strain and heal your body with sophisticated alignment principles. As a teacher you will learn numerous sophisticated adjustments. Last but not least you will see how all this is grounded in the the ancient scriptures such as Yoga Sutra. Practice without theory is as meaningless as theory without practice.
