4 Days Beginners Course: May 17, 19, 24, and 26th at 18:00.

Join Bela Lipat on an exploration into the power of Ashtanga Yoga. This ancient art and science of healing uses yogic postures, deep breathing and specific gazing points to leave you feeling more peaceful and your body more healthy and fit.

This yoga system involves synchronizing the breath with progressive series of postures, combined with concentration (dhrishti) and internal focus (bandhas). If practiced and memorized in its correct sequential order, Ashtanga Yoga gradually leads the practitioner to rediscovering his or her fullest potential on all levels of human consciousness (physical, psychological and spiritual). By maintaining this discipline with regularity and devotion, one acquires steadiness of body and mind.


During the course the tradition, lineage and fundamentals for this practice as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois will be introduced to you.  Starting with the basics of the Sun Salutations and developing into the Standing Postures, we will explore the key elements of the practice of Ashtanga Yoga; breath, gaze, bandhas (energy locks) and alignment. Together we will learn to link these elements with various asanas (postures) while practicing being present moment to moment, breath to breath.

Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic style of yoga that traces its roots all the way to the source of yoga in Mysore, India.  Bela is an Authorized Teacher of the KPJAYI in Mysore, India. This workshop is ideal for those who want to start practicing Ashtanga Yoga, or for those who have recently started an Ashtanga practice, or for those, who simply want to experience this specific style of yoga.

Important note: The Mysore class is the traditional method of teaching as established by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. Even if you are brand new to the practice, you will learn slowly, at your own pace with the supportive energy of a group and the guidance of an instructor. You will receive group instruction during the first week of the course and then group and individualized instruction from Bela on the consecutive weeks, who will grow to be familiar with your specific needs. This one-to-one work with the teacher is invaluable in developing an inspiring and deeply fulfilling practice. This course includes breathwork and philosophy All levels and abilities are welcome, especially beginners.


This course is designed for beginners to Ashtanga Yoga, making the practice simple enough that anyone can do this course successfully. Continuing students who want to deepen their experience of the subtleties of the practice will also benefit.
