Astanga Yoga 5-days Mysore Practice

With Maria Paola Stefani & Sergio Rossetti

This workshop has taken place already, please visit our Workshop Page for a more recent offering of workshops and trainings.

Lino Miele’s most senior teachers, Maria Paola and Sergio will be back with us in Amsterdam again this summer. They run the Astanga Yoga Research Institute in Rome and have nearly 20 years experience teaching astanga in the traditional method. Outside of running the school in Rome, they have also taught widely in India, Europe and the US. Each day will offer an early morning mysore-style class. Through their precise adjustments and verbal cues, you will gain a physical and embodied understanding of each and every asana.

This workshop is appropriate for ALL levels of astanga practitioners, from the very beginning students to the more advanced practitioners. While we would recommend you to join the whole program for 5-days, single day drop-ins are also possible.

During the weekend, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy more of their great adjustments, learning more about it in the "Art of Touch" playground. The last day will complete with a guided pranayama session and questions & answers. Don’t miss this opportunity to receive personalized attention from these most beloved astanga teachers!
