Weekend Workshop: “Connect & Protect”

April 26th - 28th 2024

Ashtanga Yoga Banbury
Main St, Great Bourton, Banbury OX17 1FH

This weekend package includes 4 workshops and 2 classes.
During this weekend we will look at some interesting ways to better understand the self and the communities around us. With the help of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, some simple and effective guidelines for living with a smaller footprint, and understanding how asana fits in, we can begin taking practical and real world steps at living in a way that truly connects us and protects us. This is a great workshop for teachers, aspiring teachers, mysore assistants, and serious students.

6:30pm - 8:30pm:
Connect and Protect: The Body -
This session will be an anatomical discussion that will highlight some key puzzle pieces that will help the students to understand how to protect themselves as they progress more deeply in the practice.

9am - 11am Led Class

12pm - 2pm
Connect and Protect: Nature -

Sleep, Eat, Drink, Move, Comfort, and Discomfort are the 6 pillars that this discussion will revolve around. Connect and Protect is all about how we can better connect to nature and how we can better protect ourselves from the modern day toxins that surround nearly every activity that we do. After this workshop, each of us will be able implement small, simple, and affordable steps to making our lives healthier and happier. The longer you live and think this way, the easier and more fun it becomes to come up with new creative solutions when needed.

3pm - 5pm
Connect and Protect: The Breath -
This workshop will cover the most important fundamentals of the vinyasa (breath and movement) and bring awareness to the importance it plays on the further development of our asana practices. We will go further beyond to learn about the vinyasa count and how this in itself can be a powerful tool to sharpen our one pointed focus and bring us to a state of meditation.

9am - 12pm Morning Mysore

1pm - 4pm
Connect and Protect: Others - To connect the mind to the physical body will work together on the art of hands on adjustments and clear, 2 way communication. Learning to assist others helps us learn how to be better assisted and also how to assist ourselves in those challenging times of self practice.
