Asthanga Primary Series Led Class with Gillian Cahill
Sat 20/04/2024: 14:15-16:15 (50€)

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga requires regular practice to memorise the sequence, synchronise the breath and reap the benefits. It offers strength and flexibility, develops both physical and mental awareness, balancing the body and mind. It is a dynamic and progressing sequence of postures linked together by the breath. For each movement there is one breath. The set sequence builds discipline and patience, minimising indulging in strengths and avoiding weaknesses! Progress is self-evident and experiential.

The Primary Series, called Yoga Chikitsa, detoxifies and aligns the body.

This class aims to offer a progression through the Ashtanga Primary Series, which series consists of standing, sitting and finishing postures (backbends and inversions).

Each student will be working within their physical capacity to access challenging postures, using modifications as necessary. The teacher will offer physical hands on adjustments to students who want it.

About Gillian Cahill:
Gillian was fortunate to find Ashtanga in her early twenties and has been practicing and teaching for the last twenty years. She has studied in Mysore with Sharath and Patabhi Jois as well as with senior Ashtanga teachers Richard Freeman, Kathy Cooper and Paul Dallaghan. She has also undertaken advanced Pranayama studies with Paul. Since she is a mum of 3 young kids she now has a special interest in Ashtanga during pregnancy and in maintaining a practice post kids. She strongly believes that when taught correctly (i.e. with correct alignment and breath) Ashtanga is for everybody. Most of all, she brings a sense of fun and playfulness into her teaching that makes the practice of Ashtanga accessible and beneficial to all.
