Astanga Yoga 5 day Intensive

With Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor

We're very honoured to welcome Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor for the first time to Delight Yoga in Amsterdam to teach a 5 day intensive in the Vondelkerk.

So often we find gaps in our practice and understanding of yoga. We get confused not just about the bothersome disparities between the great variety of techniques and philosophies but also about the apparent differences between alignment and flow, asana and pranayama, theory and practice.

This five-day intensive will help to fill in some of these gaps. In the morning sessions we will ground our study with an in-depth exploration of the internal patterns of breath and alignment found in the primary series of the Astanga Vinyasa system. In the afternoons there will be an introduction to Sanskrit chanting, an introduction to the internal pleasures of pranayama, and a comprehensive overview of the foundational philosophies that form the context for yoga practice. We will read and discuss the Kena and Katha Upanishads, and selections from the Yoga Sutra, and then learn to appreciate the plurality of approaches to yoga through an introduction to the Bhagavad Gita.
