Astanga Yoga Workshop - Amsterdam

With Petri Räisänen

We are very happy to welcome Petri back to Amsterdam, for a three day workshop including a morning Mysore practice, and two workshop sessions each day. Joining this workshop will give you the opportunity to experience directly the therapeutic effects of Astanga Yoga - from the hands of a great healer - and to learn more about healing & hands-on adjustments!


Petri is a direct student of Sri K P Jois and R Sharath Jois and he is officially authorized to teach primary and intermediate series. He worked closely with his guru Sri K Pattabhi Jois, who authorized him to teach in 2001.


After the Mysore practice, the morning sessions will start with guided pranayama, chanting and meditation. The workshops will bring about discussion about Astanga Yoga, history of adjustments and different teaching styles, the evolution of the asana sequences and asana alignments. How to observe the bodily issues during the asana adjustment and how to help the student to overcome the issues. Adjustments with a therapeutic view will be presented and practiced!
