“FRIDAY-FUN”: Breath & Bandha

Friday, November 27, 2020
17:00
- 19:00

Cost: 175SEK

One Friday every month, Ashtanga Yoga Malmö organises a special after-work class called Friday-fun. Here we explore asanas in a playful and fun way and practice in a different way than in the Mysore room. Each class has a special theme; this month we focus on breath and bandha (body locks)

Ashtanga yoga is known for its dynamics and the flow of asanas combined with a sounding breath. The special technique used to synchronize breathing and movement is called vinyasa krama and is unique to Ashtanga yoga.

The purpose of yoga is to calm the mind – Yoga citta vritti nirodhah. How we breathe affects how we think and how we feel. If we breathe inadequately or strained, we can neither focus (dhyana) nor be stable. Inadequate breathing is also often contributing to or signal of stress / ill health.

The class focuses on the importance of breathing in our asana practice as well as for our everyday health. You will also be introduced to the basics of the root and abdominal locks – Mula and Uddiyana bandha – how these are linked to the breath and asanas. The class will give you a deeper understanding of your yoga practice by improving your relationship to your breath. We explore different breathing techniques both in movement and stillness and end with a guided relaxation.

The class is open to all levels of yoga practitioners except to complete beginners (beginners are referred to our foundation courses)

The number of places is limited; pre-registration is required and is done via our partner Medborgarskolan (click the link). The class is taught by Isabella Nitschke, Authorised Ashtanga Yoga Teacher (Level II) by Sharath Jois, Mysore, India.
