Start the day with your Ashtanga personal practice. All levels welcome.

Every day before the daily practice. Begin the day with silent meditation, chanting the Sutras using the call-and-response method, before diving into our self-directed Mysore practice.

Gestalt workshop

Gestalt focuses on working with our polarities, recognising and integrating them so that we can live them with acceptance.

We will use techniques from this therapy to better understand why there are some specific asanas that challenge us, beyond the merely biomechanical aspect.

Later, we will be able to explore whether, after this work, we feel freer when entering the posture and also more reconciled with the emotions.
