A 20 hour Ashtanga Immersion with Corrie for teachers and practitioners, looking for a broad perspective that include but is not limited to the traditional one. Also for practioners wishing to deepen their practice with a view to sharing the practice with others.

Course Content

We will begin with the foundations of tristhanam – the importance of it and some history behind it.

 

We will examine the organic connection between the bandhas and the breath, and how this is built into the practice.

 

We will look at teaching Ashtanga yoga in an accessible inclusive way, that honours boundaries, consent, whilst being grounded in tradition.

 

We look extensively at the postures, the variation of approaching them through alignment or pranic flow, and how to read bodies to work out what is the best approach.

 

We will learn the primary series Sanskrit count and practice teaching it.

 

We will differentiate dogma from nuance and most importantly encourage you to think critically and listen to your intuition.

 

Basic yoga philosophy will be interwoven into the teachings.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the immersion, students will have:

  • A deepening of personal practice
  • Looked at how to read and work with different bodies
  • Learned how to make the practice accessible
