Ashtanga 10hr CEU
Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic form of yoga that is acknowledged to be the source of modern styles like Vinyasa, Flow, and Power yoga. This practice combines asana (the poses of yoga), pranayama (breath practice), and internal focus to create a style of yoga that can strengthen the body and mind simultaneously. Within this practice, there are six series of poses that are designed to gradually challenge the practitioner and lead to greater self-awareness through the study of the 8 limbs of yoga (Ashta= eight, anga = limb). We will discuss the 8 limbs of yoga as codified by Patanjali as well as their practical application in daily life, including the role of asana. This immersion is intended to help new students learn to practice safely and give yoga teachers the foundation they need to begin sharing this practice with others. A firm foundation in Ashtanga yoga can help to create safe and strong habits in the practice of all flow-based forms of yoga, making this a great way to inform all practices and teachings.
