To develop a deeper asana practice we need to become aware of and understand our own limitations and the limitations of our students. What we will find is that limitations are not a bad thing but rather something to challenge us, to help us grow. This is especially true when a limitation cannot be overcome in a traditional sense. By simply taking the time to experience our own physical condition and accepting it can we can develop strength and flexibility on a deeper level.

This course will seek to understand the main limitations which we may encounter in our own practice or with our students. We will focus mainly on workshops which help us to feel and understand 3 common categories of limitations as well as exercises, practices and tools to overcome the limitation when possible:

  • Physical
    • Strength
    • Flexibility
    • Physical condition
  • Mental
    • Willpower
    • Fear
  • Understanding
    • Feeling

Daily Schedule

8:00 – Pranayama and Asana class with focus on deepening and developing pranayama practice

12:00 -14:00 – Theory and practical workshop to understand and experience the main limitations. Also explained will be teaching tools to be practiced in a teaching setting in the afternoon class

“Action without understanding will not bring power. Blind Faith will not bring power. mechanical action, or blind faith, is not the purpose of yoga. We have both theory and practice: theory to understand and the practice behind it. When you practice with proper understanding and physical discipline you become strong physically, mentally and spirituality.” – Swami Vishnudevananda

With certificate of participation.
