13:30 – 16:30 (Workshop)


The practice of Ashtanga Yoga is based on the Breath and the Bandhas. In this workshop Andrea will focus on these main principles of Ashtanga Yoga and we will explore different ways to experience these strong tools. During the workshop we will explore selected Asanas of the Primary Series with their physical and energetic alignment.

“If the Asana is set correctly the Bandhas are happening automatically” (P. Jois)

Further we will explore and play with some of the “Balance” Asanas like Bakasana, Pincha Mayurasana and Urdvha Kukutasana … to experience the lightness when perfect balance is accomblished. The focus will be to increase and refine your core strength and you will learn how to use weight and gravity to practice with ease and lightness. This way you will progress your inner strength and you can focus to release all unnecessary tension in the body (and mind). Perfect balance can be reached, the energetic channels can open and the state of Yoga can arise. 

“The state of Yoga is beyond struggle, it is firm and stable” (Andrea)

This workshop will be an in depth exploration and will help you to go deeper in your practice. To attend the workshop it is recommended to have a regular practice of Ashtanga Yoga, all Levels are welcome.

The teaching language will be english.
