TASTER SESSIONS autumn 2020: in preparation for our 2021 in-depth course
Sunday, September 20, 2020 Cost: 250SEK – 800SEK
12:00 - 14:45
4-taster sessions on Sundays autumn 2020: 20/9, 18/10, 8/11, 13/12
In the spring of 2021 (Jan-Jun), Ashtanga Yoga Malmö will run a 6-month long in-depth course in Ashtanga Yoga, where participants will have the opportunity to deepen and improve their own practice on several levels. We take a deep dive into the asanas of the Primary series where the participants, among other things, learn to adjust each other in order to expand their understanding of the postures, their purpose and mechanics as well as how different people’s bodies work compared to their own. In parallel with the adjustment sessions, a module in yoga anatomy is taught as a theoretical and practical complement. The in-depth course also gives participants an opportunity to develop the mental and spiritual aspect of the practice through an introduction to seated meditation. Furthermore, the 6-months course also includes two sessions of yoga philosophy and chanting in order to give participants a holistic understanding of yoga not only as a physical practice. (read more about the 2021 course here)
In the autumn of 2020, we organise four “taster classes” as an introduction to the 2021 in-depth course:
20/9 Introduction to basic asana techniques (practice and adjusting)
18/10 Introduction to Yoga Anatomy
8/11 Introduction to Yoga Philosophy
13/12 Introduction to Meditation
Price: SEK 250 (single class), SEK 800 (all four sessions)
Registration: contact us here (limited number of places)
The taster classes are open to everyone, while 2021 in-depth course only targets those who have regular yoga practice and who practice at least half of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series (until Navasana). You can participate in all four or in individual sessions. However, you’ll get the most comprehensive view if you participate in all four. Students who have taken all four taster sessions are given priority for admission to the 2021 in depth-course.
Please note that neither the taster sessions nor the in-depth course are a “quick fix” or a shortcut to learning Ashtanga yoga. Beginners are referred to our foundation courses (1 + 2).
Teachers at the taster sessions as well as the on-depth course, are Isabella Nitschke, Sara Björs and Miho Hellén-Halme.
