‘Introduction to the Art of Adjusting Ashtanga Asana’

Triyoga Camden    16th & 17th June 2018
www.triyoga.co.uk      events@triyoga.co.uk
An introduction to exploring the asanas from the Ashtanga Standing Sequence, Finishing Sequence and Primary Series and how to mindfully read bodies and recognise when and how to use your own body, intuition and intelligence, to carefully assist other practitioners. We will explore a range of safe adjustments (according to different body types, circumstance and ability) and investigate how to move and breathe with asana (experiencing how precise verbal guidance and hands-on adjustments, allow us to work with other bodies), until refined muscle memory, openness, strength and ease manifest.  For those who have completed at least the Primary Series with proficiency and have an interest in learning more about assisting.
