Astanga Yoga Weekend Workshop - Experienced

With Lino Miele

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

We are very honored to welcome our beloved teacher Lino Miele back in Amsterdam!

Lino has been a student of Sri K P Jois since the '80s and received formal certification to teach in 1994. During his many visits to Mysore, Lino investigated thoroughly the 'vinaysa system' under Guruji's guidance, ending with the publication of the "Astanga Yoga Book", which is still today the most complete and detailed books available on the traditional vinyasa system.

"Working with the exact number of vinyasa for each asana requires a high level of practice. Gradually one will be able to utilize the control of breath and bandhas to harness the energy (prana) and flow with synchronicity from asana to asana." – Lino Miele

This year Lino will come together with Desiree, and with Sergio & Maria Paola from the Institute in Rome. You will enjoy their great adjustments and will even get an opportunity to learn about the "Art of Touch". Above all – expect loads of laughter!

The workshop is split into 2 groups of practice, allowing for the regular mysore practitioners to delve straight into their practice, while the more beginning students will have access to led classes first and then slowly be guided to the experience of the mysore style of self-practice.

Join this wonderful opportunity to be moved by one of the greatest exponents of the Astanga Yoga system.


Students with an established & regular mysore practice

  • Friday 15th July: 16:00 - 18:00 mysore practice

*Please note the times above are the correct ones, the times you see below (08.00 20.30) are not!

In "The Art of Touch" you will learn how to give and receive adjustments. Based on the psychological aspect of movement and breath in the posture, Lino will explain techniques to adjust a student in the pose while transmitting a sense of security and trust. As a teacher you will learn how to effectively adjust your student, as a student you will learn how to surrender and receive the adjustments! A great learning opportunity for both students and teachers!

Please note that you will be given a specific starting time for the mysore practices closer to date.
