The legendary Greek-born Kristina Ireland will be hosting this weekend workshop at the Shala. Kristina taught alongside her late husband Derek Ireland, who was instrumental in bringing ashtanga to Europe.
Trained and authorised by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, she has a world-wide reputation and is one of the few teachers to offer the second and third series.
The course is aimed at established practitioners and will take the following structure:
Friday evening: talk through of primary series
Saturday morning: Mysore practice
Saturday afternoon: talk through of part of second series
Sunday morning: Mysore practice
Sunday afternoon: tips and ways for the practice, based on questions and answers, plus breathing techniques and chanting.
Please note this is not suitable for beginners and students should have an established primary series practice (knowledge of second series is not essential). Early booking is recommended as spaces are very limited. Email us to book.
