Twice a year (September – April) both, a 2-week and a 1-month Program. Take this chance to elevate further your practice and knowledge of the Ashtanga Yoga method, working closely with Marilu in a small group and with focus attention. These Programs are recommended for students that already have a stablished Yoga practice. You will need at least one month of experience working with another teacher or previously have done 2 weeks of practice with us.
Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional and timeless method. In relatively recent times the method was recorded by Sri T. Krishnamacharya and his disciple Sri K Pattabhi Jois (Guruji). Nowadays his son Manju Jois, his daughter Saraswathi Jois and grandson Sharath Jois carry the lineage of the method.
The Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice is a movement meditation. In Ashtanga there is a special focus on breathing, as each Asana is accompanied by an inhalation and exhalation. We call this Vinyasa, a breathing and movement system that has one breath for each movement.
The goal is that every breath taken becomes a conscious one. The set sequence, the consistent flow, the internal holding of the bandhas, the drishti (focal point), and listening to the sound of our own breath are all techniques designed to withdraw the senses.
