Foundation (beginner’s) course in Ashtanga yoga

17:15
- 18:45

Cost: 1250SEK

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 runs for 8 weeks and starts on Monday 25 January 2021  at 17.15 (we take a break during the winter holiday on 22/2) and is taught by Isabella Nitschke authorized by Sharath Jois in Mysore, India.

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.

We begin with a short introduction to yoga philosophy followed by a gradual learning of the Sun Salutations, the standing asanas (postures) of the Ashtanga yoga primary series as well as some finishing postures. We focus in particular on linking breath and movement in the so called vinyasa krama system. We also cover Bandhas (energy locks in the body) and Drishti (focus). Most importantly, you will learn how to practice and move safely to avoid injury and to build both strength and flexibility over time.

The course is run in cooperation with Medborgarskolan. Pre-registration for the course is required and is done via Medborgarskolan . Please note that we have an age limit of 16 and people younger than 18 need parental approval.
