Ashtanga Fundamentals – An Intro to Mysore

With

Cassie

Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional form of yoga that puts the practitioner first.  Ashtanga and Mysore can be intimidating to start, but this workshop will aim to create a solid foundation. You will feel confident walking into Mysore or a Led class with the basics of what exactly is Ashtanga and what is Mysore.

 

About this workshop:

*We will cover the history and philosophy of this practice.

*We will go over foundational techniques: the Tristana Method (breath banda, dristi), Sun Salutation, and more.

*The workshop will be split between a discussion and movement practice.

Is this workshop for me?

This workshop is perfect for beginners looking to start a yoga practice as you will get the opportunity to work 1:1 with the teacher. This workshop is also great for those that already have an established practice. Please come with questions as this is meant to be conversational!
