Beginner’s/Foundation courses cover the basics of Ashtanga yoga and are suitable for complete beginners as well as those who practice other types of yoga but would like to learn Ashtanga thoroughly from scratch.
The course begins with a short introduction to yoga philosophy followed by a gradual learning of the Sun Salutations, the standing asanas (postures) and part of the Ashtanga yoga primary series as well as finishing postures. Focus is particularly put on linking breath and movement in the so called vinyasa krama system. We also cover Bandhas (energy locks in the body) and Drishti (focus). You will also learn how to practice and move safely to avoid injury and to build both strength and flexibility.
The course runs for 8 weeks and starts on Monday 2 March 2020 at 17.15 (we take a break during the Easter holiday). All participants are encouraged to attend Mysore classes in parallel to the course. One FREE Mysore class per week is included in the course price. Read more about Mysore classes under class descriptions.
The course is taught by Isabella Nitschke, authorized level 2 by Sharath Jois in Mysore, India.
The course is run in cooperation with Medborgarskolan. Pre-registration for the course is required and is done via our partner Medborgarskolan . Please note that we have an age limit of 16 and people younger than 18 need parental approval.
