Ashtanga Yoga Weekend Workshop with David Swenson

Dates: Fri 14 August 2015 - 16 August 2015


Cost: AU$200  

About the workshop:
Recognized today as one of the world's foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga, we are very excited to offer to you a weekend with David Swenson.

David began practicing yoga at a very early age with his older brother Doug as his first teacher. They practiced hatha yoga from whatever books they could find.

David's introduction to Ashtanga came in 1973 when he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, California. In 1975 David and Nancy brought K. Pattabhi Jois to the U.S. for the first time and Swenson was fortunate enough to be there. He then initiated studies directly with the master. Swenson made his first trip to Mysore in 1977 and learned the full Ashtanga system as it was originally taught by K. Pattabhi Jois.

The two workshop schedules with David are as follows:

40hr Yoga Immersion with David Swenson

Dates: Mon 17 August 2015 - 23 August 2015


Cost: AU$1000  

About the workshop:
This 40 hour course is designed as an intensive immersion into the teaching techniques of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga.

This course will cover the teaching techniques of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga.  The participants will learn safe and effective hands-on adjustments through partner work for all of the asanas, practicalities of conducting a class and yoga theory.  This is a deep immersion into the details underlying the practice and teaching of Ashtanga Yoga.  During the course all participants will be engaged in teaching and adjusting each other.  It is fun and energizing.  There is a wealth of invaluable knowledge to be learned and tools for practice to be taken away from this immersion course.

Participants should have a consistent personal practice of Ashtanga Yoga and understand the flow and sequencing of the asanas.  The course is not designed as an avenue to learn the sequence but rather to learn to teach Ashtanga Yoga or to deepen an existing practice.

As in all courses run by David Swenson there is sure to be plenty of laughter and fun woven into the experience.  You are sure to learn more than you ever imagined possible in a week long course and have a great time in the process.  Don't miss this opportunity!
