|10:00 - 13:30|
In this workshop Andrea emphasizes the work with the breath, the bandhas and how to use weight and gravity, to enable the practitioner to flow through the practice gracefully with an inherent ease and softness. We work on developing our inner strength, originating from the bandha work to release all unnecessary tension in the body. We allow our practice to become a moving meditation in which the mind stays focused on the breath and on the flow of the sequence. The state of Yoga can arise and our breath can effortlessly carry us through the practice of Ashtanga Yoga.

*strength from the bandhas
