< πίσω < Om Studio | Ashtanga Yoga Athens is HAPPY to host Ty Landrum in Athens, Greece March 24-25-26, 2017 Ty Landrum is the director of the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado. He teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as he learned it from his teachers, Mary Taylor and Richard Freeman.
Ty has been an Ashtanga practitioner since 2005. He was introduced to the method by Jennifer Elliott at Ashtanga Yoga Charlottesville, where he practiced for seven years. In 2012, after completing a doctoral degree in Philosophy from the University of Virginia, Ty moved to Boulder to study with Mary and Richard. Since then, under their guidance, he has learned some unspeakably wonderful things about the art of yoga.
In 2015, Mary and Richard asked Ty to assume directorship of their studio and teach the Ashtanga method as he learned it from them. It is his honor to continue the thread of the Ashtanga tradition at the Yoga Workshop, and to share the brilliance of yoga with anyone who wants to learn.
18:00- 20:00 PM The Breath of Ashtanga
Ashtanga Vinyasa comes alive with breath. And as the breath moves, the mind moves, with the same depth and grace. In this workshop, which combines asana and philosophy, we explore the techniques of breath and movement that give the Ashtanga practice its phenomenal potency. Our explorations will give us an experientially grounded but philosophically illuminated perspective on the inner workings of Ashtanga Yoga.
Traditional Mysore-style class. Students lead themselves through the Ashtanga Vinysa sequencing while receiving individual guidance and support. This class is intended for people with an established Mysore practice. If you do not have an established Mysore practice, please ask permission to attend.
If necessary , the Mysore class might start earlier.
Yoga practice is said to be the antidote for samsara, the poison of conditioned existence. When the practice starts to work, the poison comes to the surface, darkening the waters of our minds. This experience can be disconcerting, but it marks the beginning of the process of yoga. In this workshop, which is an exploration of philosophy, we talk about meeting these experiences with compassion, and turning poison into insight.
