Introduction to the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Method
starts Saturday 30 october 2021 at 09:00
In this 2 hour workshop taught in English, we will have a closer look at the main elements that constitute the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Method (bandhas, Ujjayi breath and drishti) and how they work together.
We will then practice primary series with more detailed instruction of the main postures and variations to adapt one's practice. To finish, I will guide you through a 10-minute Pranayama session with Nadi Shuddhi (alternate nostril breathing).
This workshop is meant for any beginner who wants to have a deeper understanding of the method and have a safe start in the practice. If you have already started your journey, this can be a good opportunity to review the basic elements of the Ashtanga method and go through the main poses in a more detailed way in order to grasp all aspects.

Style: Ashtanga Yoga
Ashtanga vinyasa is a hatha yoga practice transmitted to Pattabhi Jois from the great yoga master Krishnamacharya. It is for students seeking an invigorating approach that purifies, stimulates and energizes. It consists of postures practiced in a fluid rhythm with a concentrated breath, steady gaze, and internal contractions to direct vital energy. Due to the dynamic nature of this practice, one feels completely energized and purified in each cell of the body and also in the mind. Go to the Ashtanga yoga page.
Teacher: Nathalie Colavitti Blay
Nathalie became interested in yoga through a documentary of a young girl who explained with lucidity and breathtaking calm how yoga helped her recover from a severe childhood trauma. That spark brought Nathalie to Iyengar yoga classes in 2006 before moving on to vinyasa and thereafter Ashtanga vinyasa whose energizing and soothing practices fascinated her. She also included into her personal practice the shat kriyas - purification techniques that are highly effective for digestive problems, stress and insomnia. In 2016, she graduated La Source’s 300-hour teacher training program. At the request of her colleagues, she gives yoga classes at work. At the same time, she continues her own practice and has attended workshops by senior Ashtanga teachers like Mark Darby, Danny Paradise, Gregor Maehle, Laruga Glaser, Kathy Cooper and Doug Keller. She wishes to share the knowledge acquired and tp continue to explore that vast world called yoga. Go to Nathalie's page.
