Ashtanga yoga mysore with Lucy Crawford - Monday 21st August - Friday 25th August

 

Mon 21st August -  Friday 25th August, 6am-8.30am

Lucy's distinctive style of teaching has evolved from her direct experience with Shri K Pattabhi Jois and from working with John Scott for the past 20 years.

Her main focus is the physical and functional aspect of yoga asana. She’s continually developing her own unique adjustments, based on her knowledge of anatomy in the sphere of yoga, and has devised supportive stretches specific to each asana, which all help in the intelligent opening of the body.

Shamanic journey group with Angie Litvinoff - Saturday 16th September

Beginners ashtanga yoga Mysore practice with Cathy Haworth - Sunday 17th September

Sunday 17th September, 3-5pm

Starting an ashtanga yoga Mysore practice

Beginners often feel unsure whether Mysore classes are right for them, assuming that they will need to know the sequence before they start. However, this is not the case and, in many ways, learning in a Mysore style class is the best and safest way to learn Astanga yoga as it ensures that beginners are working at their own pace and receiving individual attention.

This workshop is designed for beginners interested in the inspiring and dynamic practice of Ashtanga yoga and for whose who wish to revisit the fundamentals of the practice.

This workshop will focus on the different components involved in safe back bending. We will work on opening the shoulders, mid and upper back, lengthening the psoas muscle, and stabilising and strengthening the muscular actions that support the back bend.
