Ashtanga Retreat and Teachers Intensive 23 – 30 May 2021

Ashtanga Intensive for enthusiasts

Every morning begins with with an intense Pranayama and Mysore Style class. In the workshop 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 defects of posture and Yoga practice.

Let us dive deeply into the fascinating world of the Yoga Sutra with an easy to understand explanation of the key Sanskrit terms and philosophical yoga related concepts.
Last but not least we will learn the correct pronunciation of the Sanskrit language and learn chanting some of the ancient philosophical poems in the traditional precise ṛg veda style.

This seminar takes place at the beautiful seminar house “Breitenteicher Mühle” near Berlin.
