Intensive / Teacher Training
with Andrea Lutz
4. – 9. August 2019
This intensive training will focus on the traditional teaching in a Mysore Style setting. This intensive will support your own practice as well as your teaching skills. The main focus of this training will be to teach Ashtanga Yoga on an individual base in a group setting. You will learn how to use your hands on the students’ body, to realize energetic blockages and help to release them. We will explore in practice and theory the techniques of Ashtanga Yoga, the breathing, the bandhas and the Drishtis.
There will be an exploration of each Asana of the Primary Series. The performance of the asana and the transits between them will be taught in depth and detail. We will learn how to adapt the Ashtanga Yoga practice to different levels of experience. We will also learn how to give variations to each individual’s needs, and how to give safe adjustment according to the individual level and state of practice.
Furthermore we will hear about the physical plane of the practice in relation to anatomical and physiological relation. This training will provide a deep exploration of the subtle bodies and the energetic alignment in the practice.
Before we start the practice in the morning, there will be a 45 min session with an individualised Pranayama and a silent Meditation.
