6-day Primary Series Intensive

Feb 16 – 21, 2019

Join David Robson and Jelena Vesić at Ashtanga Yoga Centre of Toronto for a 6-day Intensive in the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga.

Please note that this is NOT a teacher certification course. Only R. Sharath of the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India, can grant Authorization and Certification to teach Ashtanga Yoga.

This week is all about learning the proper technique to practice Ashtanga’s Primary Series. Each day will be based around morning mysore-style or led practice with David and Jelena. Afternoons will be devoted to workshops in:

  • Learning the traditional vinyasa count for the Primary Series
  • Philosophy and theory of Ashtanga Yoga and the Yoga Sutras
  • Functional anatomy
  • Sanskrit in the practice
  • Asana and alignment clinics
