Join us in this rare opportunity to practice yoga with the man who brought Ashtanga out of India. David Williams first came to Nova Scotia in 2009. Now, after a decade, he is back with his workshop, ‘Ashtanga Yoga for the Rest of your Life.’ His second visit to us is very relevant, coming at a time when the traditions of yoga have been lost in their modern interpretation.
David takes us back to the traditional roots of yoga, offering us an approach to practice that is sustainable, improves well being &health, and is accessible to all, young and old.
This class is the foundation for all students and particularly teachers, who want a greater depth of understanding of the "big picture" of the most beneficial way to practice and teach Ashtanga yoga. David will offer us a talk on how he thinks Ashtanga yoga should be taught and practiced based on his 45+ years of daily practice and teaching. As well, he will take us through the first part of primary series with thorough explanations of asana, breath and bandhas.
Continuation of Thursday’s class with discussion and completion of the Primary series.
