Intro to Ashtanga Yoga Workshop Series

  • The Shala of Pittsburgh Ashtanga Yoga 4319 Butler Street Pittsburgh, PA, 15201 United States (map)

Join us at The Shala for this informative workshop series on Ashtanga Yoga and the traditional Mysore method of teaching. Ashtanga Yoga is a complex, challenging, energizing yet meditative form of vinyasa yoga taught by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and currently taught by his grandson, R Sharath Jois. Pattabhi Jois taught his students individually, providing hands on instruction and assistance as needed, but in a group setting.

This workshop series, which will span a 4 week period, is designed for the beginner and the seasoned yogi alike. If you are new to Ashtanga Yoga, you will find this workshop will help you gain a deeper understanding of the Ashtanga practice and will most certainly prepare you to practice the way Ashtanga Yoga was meant to be taught and learned: Mysore Style!

Workshop education will include:

-A comfortable, accepting class environment in which to learn about a method of yoga that may not be so familiar to you!

-One dedicated session a week with 2 hours of workshop instruction, across the span of 4 weeks

-4 weeks of unlimited classes at The Shala during the workshop timeframe 

-A review of the history and practice of Ashtanga Yoga

-A discussion on the eight limbs of yoga

-An introduction to the yoga sutras

-A review, break down, and practice (both led and Mysore style!) of the standing sequence and the last few closing sequence postures of the Ashtanga Yoga method

-Hands on assistance with and modifications of the postures of the standing sequence as needed

Investment: $100 (Includes the four 2 hour long workshop series classes and unlimited classes at The Shala Oct 3, 2017 through  31, 2017)
