Ashtanga Yoga is like the essence of an ideal practice which was in the beginning (as early students say), practised in a bit different way - eventually more smooth and open for individual variations. At this time only few students where practising in the old Mysore Shala - today we are hundreds of students every day.
Obviously, it was necessary - for keeping the tradition - to kind of generalize it with a code - with the "Count".
Therefore the Ashtanga Led Classes with the count have over time substituted the more individual teaching in the Mysore Classes.
As the series is an ideal of a potential practice, many think of Ashtanga today as a rigid practice.
Actually it is far from that, specially when we remember the roots of Vinyasa Krama: Every posture has an order of how to come from the basic to the advanced.
In this way - as Pattabhi Jois said - Ashtanga Yoga is for everyone!
Therefore we approach Ashtanga individually with explaining elements - like its roots, the Vinyasa Krama Method, for understanding breath, bandha & sequencing, or with BKS Iyengar probs for clear directed strength and alignment - while sticking tight to the modern Mysore flow!
With us, learn the postures in depth and adapt and connect the yoga with your spiritual life!
Out of our daily practice, there was the vision, to meld yoga and arts in the lightful Andalucia, creating a space for you to find inspiration for your Ashtanga and Yoga practice or for music.
And so Ashtanga Yoga Inspiration came to be, surrounded by beautiful nature in a calm, laid-back spot near the seaside! Here, we offer you our talents. From
me, Andrea, a profound, transforming Ashtanga-Training, based on 20 years of learning about Yoga indepth and teaching in my own yoga studio.
And Govinda, a master of Indian Classical Music, offers healing vibes - sometimes accompanying the practice and sharing an evening of Concert and Kirtan.
He has a talent of enchanting - displayed through his inspiring music and offering his Veggie Peace Food.
Together we create a loving atmosphere of acceptance and potential development.
With us, you will experience strength and flexibility alongside easiness and joy, with an empathic teacher, helping you to slow down and reconnect with
yourself and your life. Traditional and gentle Ashtanga Yoga integrated in Meditation, Pranayama, Philosophy themes and holistic breath work and accompanied at special days with Indian live Music
to fit for you - your life, your body, your age, your Self.
We are happy to raise you to your full potential!
