TRISHTANA: THE HOLY TRINITY OF THE ASHTANGA VINYASA SYSTEM
WITH SUMMER DIEN, SAT 10, SUN 11 OCT 2020
This two days workshop with Summer Dien introduces the three powerful principles of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system: breath, bandhas, and drishti. The breath is the most important part of the practice and it is key to every single moment of our human existence.
We will go in depth with the breath and do many exercises to explore the breath in both its gross and subtle form. With the correct understanding and engagement of the bandhas, we can directly connect to the power centre in the body and channel this energy in order to support and enhance our practice. The dristhi offers a focal point and helps to keep the mind from wandering.
The combination of these three principles make ashtanga unique from any other style of asana. The sun salutations as well as the key poses from the primary series will be the main focus of the workshop.
The workshop will be in English.
