Friday evening - Understanding the Yoga Sutras: the Spiritual Journey of Asana
Yoga is a daily practice that demands our full devotion before we can begin to even scratch the surface of its deeper meaning as a lifelong spiritual path. In this session, Kino will lead you through a discussion of key elements of the sacred, foundational text of yoga, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
Rather than a historical account, Kino integrates yoga philosophy with daily asana practice and modern life. Written more than 2,000 years ago the teaching of Patanjali is composed of 195 Sutras organised in four books and holds the essence of the eight-limbed path of Astanga Yoga. By exploring the basis of physical yoga postures and methodology for spiritual learning in the Yoga Sutras you will delve deeper into the process of self-realization, the true intention of all hatha yoga.
Saturday morning practice - Fundamentals of Yoga: A detailed alignment-based practice rooted in the Ashtanga tradition
Dive into a detailed exploration of the Astanga Yoga method starting with the foundational principles of practice in the Primary Series. Break down key principles and poses in a perfect mix between theory and application. Perfect for all levels, new students will find a warm welcome to this ancient tradition and old students will leave with a fresh look at the lineage and practice.
Saturday afternoon session - Body Intelligence
Learn to move from a place of deep inner connection. Change the operating system of your mind and unlock your body’s innate potential for movement, freedom and awakening. More than just a workshop you will leave with tools that will shift your paradigm on movement and embodiment. For yogis of all levels and spiritual seekers interested in exploring the spiritual seed of mind-body unity. Advanced practitioners will find the keys to fine-tune their craft and newbies will find a path of ease and flow. Get ready to stretch your mind (and body!).
Sunday afternoon practice - Ashtanga Yoga Full Primary Series
Surrender to the traditional Astanga Yoga method with careful emphasis on the traditional vinyasa method and have fun along the journey. Experience the integrity and purity of the Astanga Yoga practice and be prepared to sweat.
Sunday afternoon session - Hip to Be Square: Love, Accept and Open Your Hips
Accessing the deep release and openness that hip rotation requires is a unique combination of anatomical knowledge and inner peace. Join this class to learn the right information and, more importantly, the right frame of mind to hip opening from. Gain access to the deep muscles within the pelvis and learn to relax and release your hips. Be ready for a deep journey into the inner body complete with a detailed muscular and skeletal technique and the subtle body of emotions and energy. Learn how to create the safe space of patience, kindness and tolerance in the deepest regions of the pelvis and watch your hips open.
All level students are welcome, although prior experience with Astanga yoga is highly recommended.
