Surya Namaskar & Elements of Primary Series Master Class - Practice, principles, philosophy & adjustments
Friday evening 17-20
Guruji used to say that the entire practice is comprised in the Suryanamaskar and that Yoga Chikitsa or the Primary Series is the foundation for all other series of Ashtanga Yoga. This truth will be the starting point for our exploration of the practice as a whole. We will journey through key elements of the Surya Namaskar and the Primary Series with an explorative mindset, looking at common energetic principles, actions, alignment details & adjustments. In the following Mysore Sessions (Sat and Sun morning), we will draw from the learnings in this class to help cultivate a transformational yet sustainable practice in accordance with yogic principles. Kia therefore wishes that all participants attending the Mysore sessions with her, first take this essential class to set a common intention for the workshop.

Pranayama & Kriyas - practice, techniques and philosophy.
Saturday 14-15.30 & Sunday 12.30-14
The division between the body and mind is first healed with the breath. Hence Pranayama is considered the central aspect of any authentic Hatha yoga practice. In these sessions we will deepen our appreciation of the subtleties of breath and its significance in yogic practices and philosophy. New students will be introduced to traditional teachings of pranayama & kriyas, whilst those with more experience will refine and deepen their practice and understanding.
