6 - 11 DECEMBER 2020
6 DAYS INTENSIVE
WITH KPJAYI CERTIFIED TEACHER
6 DAYS INTENSIVE WITH PHILLIPA ASHER
An opportunity to work closely in a small group, with one of the few KPJAYI Certified Ashtanga yoga teachers, who has learned the Primary, Intermediate, Advanced A and B Series directly from Sri K Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath.
Following the traditional ‘guided self-practice’ method of learning / practicing Ashtanga asana (where one posture is mastered by the practitioner with perfect synchronization of tristhana, steadiness, ease, joy, and safe physical / energetic alignment, before learning the next), you will have the opportunity to deepen and develop your asana technique and practice, whilst being guided through methods of approaching the more challenging postures.
On the final morning (December 11th), there will be a Sanskrit-Counted Led Primary Series class and pranayama session and the afternoon workshop will offer an opportunity to cover technique, concepts, and Q&A.

From London, Philippa Asher is one of a few Ashtanga yoga practitioners in the world (and the only British woman), to be Certified by Sri K Pattabhi Jois, to teach the Ashtanga yoga method in his tradition. She has learned the Primary, Intermediate, Advanced A and Advanced B Series directly from Pattabhi Jois and Sharath (at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India) and shares the Ashtanga system, internationally.
After a vocational ballet school training from age twelve and twenty-five years of studying and teaching dance at universities and ballet companies all over the UK, Philippa randomly walked into an Ashtanga yoga class in London. It was a life-changing incident, that made complete sense.
From the late 1990s, she began learning the Ashtanga system, daily before work (in the media, film and music industries). For twenty years she has studied for several months each year at KPJAYI in Mysore (and on tour), practicing under the guidance of guru Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath Jois.
Philippa’s dedicated passion for Ashtanga yoga, background as a trained dancer and experience as a qualified teacher (Post Graduate Certificate in the Education of Adults), gives her an intuitive and sound understanding of bodies, yoga asanas, people and how they learn.
