Astanga Yoga & Philosophy Workshop
With Govinda Kai
03 March 2018 See all dates
We're very happy to welcome Govinda Kai back to Delight Yoga, as he's on a stop over in Amsterdam, for a one day workshop.
Govinda Kai is one of the very few teachers worldwide certified by the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India. Govinda is devoted to the Astanga yoga lineage and to maintaining the beauty and purity of this tradition. He works to accomplish this through his personal practice, his yearly trips to Mysore to stay connected to the institute and his teachers, and through his consistent pursuit of spreading these teachings to students around the world.
Govinda's workshops present students with intense and engaging Astanga Led Classes, chanting, kirtan, discussions, and profoundly eye opening lectures covering a variety of topics that will help us all better understand how to integrate this yoga into our everyday lives.
This workshop will include a full led primary series class followed by a lecture. The lecture topic will be Passion: The Fire of Life’s importance in life and in practice. Passion is a very mysterious topic. Some people seem to have it and others do not. Why is passion important to our lives, especially with regard to our yoga practice? Can passion be actively cultivated? What are the dangers of having too much passion? We will address these questions and much more!
All levels are welcome, though some previous experience with Astanga Yoga is recommended.
