Advance Primary Series cource (Yoga Chikitsa)
We often consider a yoga practice approach to be advanced in relation with what appears to be right or advanced in the eye.
However, yoga has more to offer that can only be experienced through deep practice.
Relaxing the face, keeping a deep and steady flow of breathing, a suitable and comfortable asana approach often enables us to receive something higher within our heart.
During the week, we will work on the primary series, that has a therapeutically approach by its nature, giving emphasis to as many details as possible.
Practice will take place in the morning and evening.
Morning practice will focus on an individual approach for each practitioner, while the evening group sessions will explore details and ways of improving and advancing this particular method.
We will use Asana, Mudra & Pranayama.
9:00 Mysore self-practice
18:00 Analysis and building an individual practice that suits the nature of each practitioner
Philosophical basis of the practice
Information concerning the program
Mysore or self-practice is known to all that have practiced the method of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga.
However, during this week we will approach it in a very slow way, giving emphasis to details, flow and repetitions of Asanas in order to deepen in our practice.
The Pranayama class will prepare us to build a daily practice while for those that already practice they can deepen more in it.
The evening class will work more in details with basic aspects of the practice using Asana as a way to experience the benefits of a method that works in our body, including helpful tools like our gaze, the sound and flow of breath, ease / comfort and variations of each aspect of the practice. Evening classes will give us another point of view and thus support our already established morning practice.
After a short break, we will spend time to approach the philosophical basis of Yoga through selected sutras, articles, or personal views, questions and thoughts from our experiences.
We will close the seminar with a led class on Saturday morning at 8:00 am.
During the useful time of this seminar, we will approach many aspects / levels of our practice, keeping in mind that a practitioner does not need to adapt to a method but the method can adapt to the practitioner in order to serve and support each individual and phase of his / her own life.
This Advanced Yoga primary series course is addressed to everyone that is willing to deepen and experience the inner side of this practice.
Duration of the seminar
Monday to Saturday
We begin at 8.00 am and finish after the morning practice of the last day.
