The ‘Basics’ Classes provide the underlying structure to help a student be able to  enter into an ‘Open’ class intelligently and safely. This class is suitable for beginners, but open to all levels of practitioner wanting to deepen their understanding of the ‘base poses’!

SACRED CHANTING WORKSHOP with SARASWATI

Chanting is the simple but powerful art of using sound to create positive vibrations that heal the body and calm the mind. Quantum physics breaks down all of matter to the level of vibration – waves of energy. Chanting uses sound waves to gently bring the mind to a state of meditative awareness, free from the worries of the past or the stress of the future. It is deeply relaxing and rejuvenating.

FRI / 23 JAN / 6.00 - 8.00PM / 200pp / info@airyoga.co.za

SACRED DANCE WORKSHOP with SARASWATI

“Ever wondered how Indian dancers move their bodies with such grace and rhythm? Come delve into the mystery of Indian dance and experience the sacredness of flowing with your body.” Indian classical dance is deeply feminine; soft, yet strong; tender, yet firm; sensual and sacred. It is sacred because it becomes a form of sadhana for the dancer; a form of personal spiritual practice as she moves into perfect presence in her body and it flows in a moving meditation, the dance of Shakti, (the Divine Feminine.) LADIES ONLY.

SUN / 25 JAN / 11.00 - 1.00PM / 250pp / info@airyoga.co.za

ASHTANGA YOGA INTENSIVE WITH MICHAEL HAMILTON

Join Michael for a 4 day workshop with talks and asana classes aimed at connecting the practice of yoga asana and Buddhist meditation for living in today’s complex world. Spaces are limited. Booking is essential.

ASHTANGA MYSORE

Mysore style is traditional Ashtanga yoga, taught in India by the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois. It is a unique class where you will practice a set sequence of postures at your own pace while a teacher gives you individual guidance and adjustments. As you progress through the series you will receive new postures. For all levels from beginners to advanced. It’s a wonderful way to learn a meditative personal practice.

ASHTANGA COUNTED

Counted Primary Series taught in the traditional format where the teacher calls out the posture names and counts the breaths to encourage a seamless meditative flow. The class is steady paced with minimal alignment instructions given, so some familiarity with the Primary Series is recommended. This is a great compliment to your Mysore practice.

This is an introduction to the traditional method of Ashtanga yoga. You will be introduced to key concepts of Tristana and the beginning sequence of the Primary Series. This will slowly ease you into the Mysore style. Suitable for students of all levels, complete beginners or more advanced practitioners wanting to learn about the fundamentals of Ashtanga Yoga.

No experience necessary.
