Varmt välkommen!

Led Class – Back to Basics
Fredag 17 aug kl 17-19
Our senses are constantly being stimulated and our focus going outward. To achieve progress in yoga we have to focus inward. To do this, Ashtanga uses the Tristhana method which consists of asana, breathing and gazing points. In this led class we’ll take an in-depth look at these foundational elements, so that they can blossom into an integrated yoga practice. Special attention will be given to the sun salutations and standing sequence. For everyone!

Led Primary
Lördag 18 aug kl 9-11
This class, counted in Sanskrit with additional descriptions in English takes you through a full led primary series of the Ashtanga yoga method. Students are led through the sequence in a continuous fashion, with an emphasis on breath counts and details of the vinyasa method in a focused and invigorating atmosphere. This class is for everyone with basic understanding of Ashtanga yoga. Full primary series practice is not a requirement and modifications will be shown as needed.

Breath, Pranayama and Beyond
Lördag 18 aug kl 13-15
Breath is the most vital process in the entire body and at the very heart of the Ashtanga yoga practice. This workshop helps us to better understand our breath and provides tools to move towards – or deepen the connection with – the fourth limb of yoga: pranayama. You will learn a basic pranayama routine, that can open the door to new possibilities within the yoga practice, and guide towards the state of meditation. Everyone welcome!

Primary Series Trouble-Shooting
Lördag 18 aug kl 16-18
In this workshop we will look at a selected themes within the Yoga Chikitsa practice. We will explore the ‘gateway’ poses for a more in-depth look at this therapeutic series. Special attention will be given on how to work with tight hips, as well as how to protect your shoulders, knees, and lower back as you develop your practice. This class is for everyone. Full primary series practice is not a requirement.

Led Standing Sequence, continues as Mysore
Söndag 19 aug kl 9-11
At the very heart of Ashtanga yoga is Mysore practice. The philosophy behind Mysore style is that we all are different, and no guided class can fit the needs of every body. This style of teaching is great for complete beginners and seasoned practitioners alike. Mysore allows for personal, individualised support at every session. This is the traditional method of learning yoga. We start this session with led standing sequence, and afterwards the practice continues Mysore style. Come as you are!

1% Theory
Söndag 19 aug kl 13-15
“99% practice, 1% theory” – Sri K Pattabhi Jois. What is the aim of yoga? What are the so-called eight limbs of yoga? Where do they come from? How can they help my practice, or life? Most of us enter yoga eager to learn the “asanas,” physical postures. As we deepen our practice, we realise that it is only the third of eight (ashta) limbs (anga) that form what we call the ”Ashtanga yoga” system. This down-to-earth, fun and practical workshop gives an insight into a key philosophical teaching behind yoga and explore their applications within our day-to-day life. Everyone welcome!

Mikko Seppinen
..has been studying yoga since the early days of the millennium. He stepped onto the yoga mat for the first time in Helsinki, Finland while studying social sciences, pursuing a career in journalism and PR, and burning through at least one pair of running shoes a year.
The first practice challenged him in an entirely new way, and he wanted to find out why. Mikko started his daily visits to the mat and few years later the exploration took him to Mysore, India. After yearly visits to the source of Astanga yoga Mikko has received the Level 2 teaching authorization by KPJAYI.
In addition to R. Sharath Jois, Mikko wants to thank Lino Miele and Petri Räisänen for nurturing the foundation of his practice, and Sri OP Tiwari and Sudhir Tiwari for enriching his experience of yoga. Teaching since 2003, Mikko wants to inspire the passion for the practice and to help students to be sincere rather than serious. In recent years, Mikko has been leading workshops and retreats in Europe, Asia and Africa.
