BUILD A GENTLE, STRONG AND JOYFUL PRACTICE

When your main aim for the TTC is to deepen your personal practice - this course will enable you to dive deep and advance in your series.


Along the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, you will learn about how to master the key postures and build a strong and joyful personal practice with morning Mysore classes. You will develop stamina as well as flexibility, and progress in the series at your own pace.

 

We will follow the traditional Ashtanga Series, and when you complete Primary and start backbends, you go on travelling through Intermediate.

 

I am there to support you to practice to your full potential. 

TEACH WHAT YOU LOVE - EXPERIENCE & METHOD

Often we are ambitious practitioners in Ashtanga, and when we teach it, we find that each person has different abilities. We need methods to teach different levels and ages at one time, in the same class, without overstraining one and under-challenging another. Thats why we refer to the background of Ashtanga Yoga, the Yoga of Krishnamacharya, to reach the goal, step by step, while keeping the flow.

 

We will explore the sequencing in asana in the technique classes. How a single posture is built up from the easy to the advanced, as it is this ideal final asana that we mostly practice in Ashtanga. Also life is always changing, and what we are able to do today, might vary tomorrow so we learn to adapt depending on our daily condition.

 

There is much wisdom in the traditional Ashtanga Yoga Count and understanding and learning it is part of the TTC. It is great fun to be able to lead and count through an Ashtanga-Led Class - as it is guided all around the world!

 

Sharing what we love is a great joy, as is finding your voice and personal style of teaching.

THE ART OF HANDS ON AND ALIGNMENT

I love assisting with the asanas and it is always wonderful to see how an asana gains strength and energy through alignment, which is felt as a pleasant relief. From an early age, I had to care for my scoliosis - which is why alignment is so important to me (as for others too).


In Tai Chi Chuan (which I taught for 20 years) I learned to sense the movement of energy in the body and mind. This helps me to subtly guide my students in inner and outer alignment.

 

Rolf Naujocat, my first and certified Ashtanga Yoga teacher, always paid attention to the correct alignment in the postures and worked with BKS Iyengar techniques. With his help, I reached the 3rd Ashtanga series and was well prepared for the intensive practice with Sharath in Mysore.

 

Through the teachings of Sri Sribhashyam, the son of Sri T. Krishnamacharya, I continued to learn about subtle alignment in yoga, which happens through breath & concentration.

 

In our TTC's we explore the techniques of the asanas and practice Hands On from day one.
