Intensive for Ashtanga Enthusiasts

Ashtanga Retreat 23 – 30 May 2021

This ashtanga retreat is for ashtanga enthusiasts who wish to go beyond the mere practice of asana. We begin the day with an intense guided Pranayama and Mysore Style session. In the morning and afternoon alignment sessions we analyze all postures of the primary series in great detail and look at extremely elegant adjustments that are based on intelligence rather than force. You will understand the meaning of the bandhas in a way that it actually makes sense. By this you will become empowered to heal your body from the common problems of individual postures or vinyasas. Last but not least Grischa will introduce you to the ancient Yoga philosophy of the Yoga Sutra and proper pronunciation of the Sanskrit language. All this is embedded in the beautiful nature in a wonderful seminar retreat house. If you can’t make for the retreat it in May you may also check out: Ashtanga Retreat 26 July – 1 August 2021

For practitioners

As usual Ashtanga practice is open are for all practitioners with prior Mysore Style experience. This training is about fascinating core principles of the Ashtanga method that should be learnt in seemingly simple poses which paves an easy path to so-called advanced postures.

For ashtanga teachers

I pass on all my condensed teaching and practice experience on asana,  pranayama, philosophy and meditation in my trainings. You will learn how practitioners can be assisted in a safe and precise way. You will understand how I recognize and improve various alignment patterns from the beginner to the most advanced practitioner. Every morning you can try out the patterns for yourself, integrate it with your personal background and refine your teachings skills.

Only good education matters, not numbers of hours, months or years. That’s how we all have learnt teaching. I will not press you into a teacher template or judge your teaching skills. I will not sell fake security in form of totally meaningless certificates. Your values as a teacher is yourself, your open heart and your experience. You can’t buy being a Yoga teacher.

Breitenteicher Mühle

This seminar takes place at the beautiful seminar house “Breitenteicher Mühle” near Berlin. We have spent several weeks at this mill already and it is embedded in a mind-blowing setting surrounded by a little forest and lush fields inviting for walks. It’s truly a little paradise – we have seen all sorts of animals and rare birds here.

Accommodation

All rooms at Breitenteicher Mühle are beautifully designed and built with excellent natural materials, lot’s of wood and clay.
You can choose from different room types (single, double, triple). All rooms are fully equipped with linen, towels etc. Two rooms share one bathroom.
A special highlight is the Mongolian tent in the garden.
Please contact us if you run on a very low budget and would like to sleep in your own tent.

Food

The seminar house offers three delicious mails per day. 100% organic, partly home grown – and simply amazing. All meals are made with love!
