Saturday 9th September: Ashtanga Fundamentals with Caroline Simpson
300 Gloucester Road – 9am-11am
Suitable for beginners and improvers to Ashtanga Yoga, this morning workshop will go over the general principles of practice as well as including some detailed examination of the standing series of asanas. Learning how to work effectively in these poses can inform and transform your entire yoga practice. This is a stand-alone workshop but also continues the series of Fundamentals, so those who attended the first workshop may want to continue studying in this series.
Caroline has maintained a daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga for over 11 years including throughout her two pregnancies. She has completed eight extended study trips to KPJAYI in Mysore – including a special two-month training course with Sharath Jois on teaching the practice – and is Authorised level 2. She is fully dedicated to the practice, to her teachers and to her students. You can read more about her personal yoga journey in her Ashtanga:Parampara interview here.
Cost: £35 including a week of practice at Ashtanga Bristol (during the week following the workshop) or £25 workshop only.
