Bharath Shetty Workshops @ Love Yoga

12-14th April 2019

It is with great honour and excitement that I will be hosting my teacher Bharath Shetty in April here in Aberdeen! For an entire weekend Yogacharya Bharath Shetty will be sharing over 20 years of yoga experience and wisdom in our Mysore classes and will be leading a number of workshops over the 3 days as well as some special Innovation Series Classes, which are not to be missed!

With over two decades of teaching experience, a playful approach to asana and a deeply personal knowledge of yoga philosophy this weekend will not only be a great learning opportunity but also lots of fun!

About Bharath Shetty:

Born in India, Bharath Shetty starting practicing at a young age and developed a keen interest in yoga after it helped him deal with chronic asthma. He studied intensely with the late B.K.S. Iyengar and graduated from both the Vivekananda Kendra Yoga Institute and International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre with aplomb. At only 19 years of age he opened his first studio; 14 years on, Indea Yoga was founded in Mysore with internationally applauded Mysore style classes and teacher trainings. For more information on Bharath see this Guardian article (https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2018/jan/12/mysuru-india-guide-yoga-food-hotels-restaurants) or visit his website www.indeayoga.com.

Although this is a led class the sequence will be different each time and will involve postures and transitions not typically seen in most traditional sequencing. Suitable for all levels.

Foundations of Practice Workshop- Grounding & Growing

28-30th September 2018 @ Love Yoga

Over this weekend we will be examining the fundamental roots that form a sustainable practice, through exploration of five main aspects: forward bends, back bends, balances, twists and inversions. Starting with the foundational elements we will build upon these to more intermediate and advanced postures. In addition to the asana, some time will be devoted on each day to two other key components: breath and bandhas. Working in this way creates a strong basis which in turn leads to a healthy practice. Such focus on strengthening our roots will also address how to manage present injuries and prevent future ones. Whether you are new to yoga or a long term practitioner, this workshop will help you ground deeper into your practice and challenge the limits of your growth.

Details:
Friday 6-8pm Twists £20
Saturday 8.30-11.30am Backbends £30
Saturday 12.30-3.30pm Forward Bends £30
Sunday 8.30-11.30am Balances £30
Sunday 12.30-3.30pm Inversions £30

One day- £50
Full weekend- £100

Ashtanga & Moon Workshops  
Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 July, 2017 @ Love Yoga Ltd

Ashtanga Workshop – Finding the Balance 
Saturday 8 July, 2017 8.30am-12pm

In this workshop we will explore the themes of balance that run through the Ashtanga Primary series: the balancing of strength with flexibility, the balance of stability and softness, and literally how to keep your balance during challenging asana!

Beginning with an exploration of Surya Namaskara A & B we will work our way through the series, paying special attention to the standing postures and then turning things upside down as we play with headstand and some of its variations. We will also look at ways to build core strength to help in balancing postures such as Navasana, Bhujapidasana and Vinyasas.

As Charlie is the new Morning Mysore teacher, this workshop will be a great chance for you to get to know her and vice versa!

Moon Workshop – Moon Sequence-Chandra Krama 
Sunday 9, 8.30am-12pm

Created by Matthew Sweeney as a complimentary sequence for the Ashtanga series, Chandra Krama is intended for practice during moon days, periods of low energy, injury, menstruation and pregnancy.

Ashtanga is considered a surya (sun) energy based practice, focussing more on creating fire and heat within the body. Conversely, Moon sequence is a chandra (moon) energy based practice, which encourages a calm and more introspective state. This is a gentle and flowing sequence with the core values of vinyasa maintained: continuous movement and awareness of breath. Although the postures of Chandra Krama do at times mirror those of the Ashtanga primary series, the intention is shifted by slowing the pace; most asana is done in a kneeling, sitting or lying state and can be held for longer. The deep hip opening and gentle backbending offered can also be deeply therapeutic and are easily accessible. All this helps to rebalance the practitioner physically, psychologically and energetically.

Although Moon Sequence can be viewed as an addition to your Ashtanga routine, it is an entire practice in and of itself.

DETAILS:
£60 for both days, £35 for one day
