Ashtanga Yoga Workshop with Chiara Castellan on March 23, 2019
More and more people are practicing Yoga every day because of its tremendous mental and physical benefits. A steady yoga practice will help you built strength and flexibility and gives you a greater sense of stability in all aspects of your life.
Ashtanga Yoga is for everyone. All you need is the openness and willingness to grow and become a better you. 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, pure happiness.
Under the experienced guidance of Ashtanga yoga teacher Chiara Castellan we will focus in this workshop on the essential postures of the primary and intermediate series of the Ashtanga system and on the correct technique and alignment principles for a safe and effective practice. We will also work on Pranayama (breath), Bandhas (looks) and Drishtis (focus points), the key points of a strong and healthy practice, and explore how they turn our asana practice into a moving meditation.
If you have ever wanted to deepen your understanding of both the practice and the underlying philosophy of Ashtanga Yoga, this workshop is for you.
