Ashtanga Basis (4-11 August 2019)
AN ANCIENT YOGA TRADITION WITH REFRESHING VITALITY IN THE PRESENT
The Ashtanga Yoga system is a living lineage that dates back thousands of years in an unbroken line of teachers. Ashtanga literally means “eight-limbs” and by practicing each of the limbs all of the impurities in the body and mind are destroyed. The foundation of Ashtanga yoga is breath (incorporating bandhas or locks), asana (poses) and drsti (gazing point).
Yoga Chikitsa is the Sanskrit name for the Primary Series and it can be translated as Yoga Therapy. Therefore this series purifies and heals the body.
During this week, we get familiar to the Primary Series step-by-step. This yoga week is addressed to practitioners already familiar to hatha yoga who wants to get to know to the ashtanga yoga, as well as to ashtanga yoga practitioners of the primary series who want to build strong basis or delve into their practice.
Yoga teacher & masseur
After spending 12 years in working as attorney at law, I decided to follow my heart and serve my dharma through yoga and massage. Thus, I dedicated my time to training seminars of yoga and massage in Greece and abroad. In 2012, I started teaching yoga in a regular base and since 2014 I run my own yoga and massage studio in Kyparissia, Greece, where I teach hatha & ashtanga yoga classes and offer sessions of thai yoga and ayurveda massage. Through yoga and massage, I share my experience and encourage others to get back to source, our nature. I feel gratitude for living in nature and study life by observing it.
