Ashtanga From The Heart
A Workshop with Ríonach O’Flynn
Sunday, 22 July, 12:30pm-3pm
A 2.5 hour workshop gives Ríonach the opportunity to share more of what she has learned over many years of practice and study with some of the world’s foremost Ashtanga teachers. In this workshop, designed for those who practise the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga, we will explore approaches to technique and examine modifications and possibilities for overcoming common stumbling blocks in the sequence. We will also look at the early stages of Second Series and talk about how to integrate a yoga practice into your life in a sustainable way. The workshop will include Pranayama and Meditation, and we’ll finish with a guided Yoga Nidra that will leave you deeply relaxed in body and mind.
