Ashtanga Yoga as a Spiritual Practice
Date and Time:
Cost: £30 / £25 concessions
This workshop will include a full Primary Series Led Practice and after a break we will discuss Yoga as a Spiritual Practice.
Ashtanga means eight limbs, referring to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras in which the eight stages of Yoga are outlined. We will discuss the eight limbs in relation to the practice, both in its physical and spiritual nature, to understand how these two aspects are interconnected.
We will also cover:
Brief history of Ashtanga Yoga
Correct breathing and transitions
Different stages in the practice
Developing a personal practice
Tapas and Bhakti and how to apply them to the practice
Opening and closing chants and their meaning.
Students should have some experience in the Ashtanga Yoga system.
