The Therapeutic Wisdom of Ashtanga Yoga – A Workshop with Chiara Castellan
This workshop is offering us the ideal environment to explore our full potential and find the path to clarity and strength. Nourish your body and mind through Ashtanga Yoga and bring your practice to a deeper dimension. Let fear go.
With a regular and correct practice, we take a journey into ourselfs, a path to peace and contentment, and perhaps we will experience a state of mind where our thoughts are calm and our mind rests in its natural state of tranquility.
Under the experienced guidance of Ashtanga yoga teacher Chiara Castellan we will explore the essential postures of the Ashtanga system, learn the correct transitions out of Utkatasana and Virabhadrasana and the techniques for jump back and jump through. Floating will become safe, elegant and fun for everyone.
Building on these foundations we will then playfully explore inversions like, Pincha Mayurasana, Handstand, Bakasana and other arm balances.
We will delve into the different aspects of the practice - such as strength, flexibility, stability and respiration - in detail and practice these aspects in order to better understand the poses and the alignment in relation to our body.
