Weekend Classes

RADHA and PIERRE 

A WEEKEND OF YOGA PRACTICE

23 – 25 NOVEMBER 2018 GLASGOW

Pricing:

£190 early bird payable before 12th October

£230 full price

The approach of Radha and Pierre is of allowing the body to unfold in it’s own time through the active concentration of the breath, increasing vitality and lending a rhythm to this dynamic sequence while incorporating softness and meditative quality.

Radha and Pierre’s teaching style is to ‘guide without interference’ and to encourage without pressure, enabling students to discover their full potential.

Their view is that people of all ages and conditions can benefit from this Yoga and it has been their aim to pass on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in such a way that it does not clutter the mind with unnecessary dogmas, instead leaving both body and mind free to develop from its own inner wisdom. They believe that Yoga should enhance the enjoyment of life by making everything we do less complicated.

“Ashtanga Yoga is a yoga of practice. It requires mental and physical application from which can be derived the development of strength, poise and inner wisdom. This method of Yoga involves the purification of the system through heat generated from the breath and continual movement.” Radha

Radha has been studying and teaching Yoga since the 1970’s. Then she met Sri K Pattabhi Jois and learned the Ashtanga Vinyasa system from him. For many years she returned to Mysore regularly spending whole winters doing her practice in his presence, with his guidance and, later, when he was joined by his grandson Sharath. She continues to teach the classes inspired by her experiences with them.

Pierre is a direct student of Sri K Pattabhi Jois and visited him regularly in Mysore to practice under his and Sharath’s tutelage. His interests and research in Yogic matters have also led him to study various healing therapy methods. Pierre teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga at Yoga Plus and elsewhere around the world.

Traditionally Sanskrit Counted Primary Series

Ashtanga Yoga Master Class

 

Ashtanga Yoga Master Class

(Session1)

Kia will lead us on a journey through key elements of the Primary & Intermediate Series with an explorative mindset, looking at common energetic principles, actions & alignment details. We will develop an understanding for Asana not only as a practice but also as an Anusthan, a way of being, a state of mind.

In the following Mysore sessions we will draw from the teachings in this workshop to help cultivate a transformational yet sustainable practice in accordance with yogic principles.

Kia therefore wishes that all participants attending the Mysore sessions will first attend this essential class to set a common intention for the workshop

Ashtanga Yoga Mysore style

(Sessions 2 & 4)

Join Kia for 2 mornings of Mysore classes with a limited number of students. This is a wonderful opportunity to receive individual guidance and adjustments from Kia to deepen your personal practice.

Kia teaches with careful adherence to the authentic teachings of Ashtanga Yoga whilst encouraging each individual to explore the beauty of the practice.

All levels welcome but you need to be able to practice Mysore Style Self-Practice

Pranayama and Kriyas

(Sessions 3 & 6)

The division between the body and mind is first healed with the breath. Pranayama is considered the central aspect of any authentic Hatha yoga practice.

In these sessions we will deepen our appreciation of the subtleties of breath and its significance in yogic practices and philosophy. New students will be introduced to traditional teachings of pranayama & kriyas, whilst those with more experience will refine and deepen their practice and understanding.

Adjustment techniques

(Session 5)

In this session Kia will share her extensive experience as a Mysore teacher, guiding through hands-on adjustments. We will explore the practice and philosophy of yoga asanas, their purpose, patterns and context. We will pay careful attention to each individual, looking at common body patterns, helping to build an intelligent, mindful practice and relevant teaching and adjusting tools. Cultivation of physical awareness and observation skills is the foundation for all adjustments.

This session is explorative in nature and designed to support teachers as well as practitioners wishing to expand their understanding of the art of adjusting and the inner form of the Ashtanga Yoga sequence.

Ashtanga Yoga Counted Primary

(Session 7)

We will close the circle of this intensive by coming together as One in body, breath and mind through the beauty and flow of a traditionally Sanskrit counted Primary Series. When we focus on counting the mala of the postures, the practice becomes the object of meditation for the student and the teacher – creating one single intention.
