Ashtanga Mysore-style Class (2 hr)
starts Saturday 27 july 2019 at 10:00
This is a Mysore-style class which means that each student knows and practices the sequence of postures at his/her own rhythm. This gives more freedom to the student and also frees the teacher to circulate throughout the room and take the time to give specific hands-on adjustments.
As the course lasts 2 hours, there is time for bandha instruction and practice in the beginning and pranayama, meditation and relaxation at the end of class.

Teacher: Surya Fackelmann
Surya was first exposed to yoga when her mother practiced it while pregnant. She practiced yoga as a child and, after some years of absence, took up a daily yoga practice in 2011. Since 2013, she practices Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga on a daily basis. Surya has experienced the obvious benefits of a dedicated Ashtanga practice - improved strength and flexibility. She also deeply values the more subtle benefits, including inner balance and a calm strength of body and mind - on and off the mat. Surya believes that Ashtanga should be practiced with sincerity, humor and joy. She completed her 200h-teacher training (TT) at Ashtanga Yoga Paris and is near the end of an additional 300h-TT at the same school. Surya is grateful to have learned about the 8 limbs of Ashtanga from senior teachers. She dedicated extensive time to study with Lino Miele and Sharmila Desai in India. Happy to be able to share her knowledge and experience with kindness, clarity and utmost respect for students and their background, she looks forward to being a life-long student herself.
