Discover the Essence & Magic of Ashtanga Yoga: A Workshop with Chiara Castellan

More and more people are practicing Yoga every day because of the 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.

In this workshop, we will focus on the essential postures of the primary and intermediate series of the Ashtanga system and the correct technique and alignment principles to them for a safe and effective practice.
We will also work on Pranayama (breath), Badhas (looks) and Drishtis (docus points), the key points of a strong and healthy practice and explore how they turn our asana practice into a moving meditation.

Come to this workshop and discover your own strength and softness, to fly like a bird, stand brave and steady on your forearms and hands and breath soft and steady in some deep backending and hip opener postures. It is not important how far along you are in the Ashtanga series, but that you practice intelligently and therapeutically. With this focus, you will be able to be healthy on the mat for a lifetime.

Chiara Castellan will teach this workshop on Saturday afternoon of November 26, 2022 from 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm at AIRYOGA, Oberdorfstrasse 2 in 8001 Zurich.
