Ashtanga Yoga Immersion


Booking open for an amazing 10 days focus (2 x 5 days) on the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga with Clive Bratchell and Mark Cupit.

Immerse in the detail and take your time to absorb it all with these two experienced teachers.

Continual refinement and regular practice of the foundations are the secrets to advancement through Ashtanga Yoga. When we practice regularly we often leave these techniques behind. Our focus gets a little lost as our ‘monkey mind’ strives for ‘goals’ and we sometimes lose the intimate experience that can be found in the practice. Practising attentively will allow us to discover or recover & refresh what we once knew as we return to the foundations. There is always infinitely more to explore here, and infinitely more to understand. If we allow ourselves to revisit the details, our practice can deepen, sometimes in sudden and unexpected ways.

The purpose of the Ashtanga Yoga Immersion course is to provide practitioners, whatever stage they are at, with a chance to learn or reinvigorate their grasp of the beginnings. Revisit the foundational techniques of breath, asana, focus and alignment. Refreshing these (or learning them for the first time) will bring a deeper experience not only from external movements of the body but also the subtleties of the internal mechanics, bandha & subtle internal body activation.

The transformational magic of Ashtanga Yoga should be revealed through regular practice, on this journey we gain knowledge of our external and internal world, finding patience with the process to allow it to do it’s work. We do not need to be bendy or strong for this to happen, the practice allows it to happen naturally. The movements, locks, focus, breath and postures bring awareness into our centre, into our very heart and soul. It allows us clear space to see beyond the confines of our daily routine and look inside at the deep learning that can be found when the cobwebs are dusted away.
