Ashtanga Yoga Immersion Course with Mannu in Koh Phangan, Thailand

This Ashtanga Yoga immersion Course with Mannu in Koh Phangan, Thailand consists of:

MAY 2021:
4 week option: May 2nd – 28th

2 week option: May 2nd – 14th 


Through this 2 or 4 weeks Ashtanga Yoga Immersion Course, the practitioners will experience a deeper understanding of embodied sensation, breath and bandha.

The result of practicing with this deeper understanding is the cultivation of full embodied awareness that ultimately leads to reawakening the organic intelligence of the body/mind/consciousness system. This kind of fully embodied awareness goes beyond the asana practice and bears fruits into a deeper and fuller experience of all aspects of life.

A deep immersion into daily morning practice and afternoon sessions will gradually bring practitioners to experience and allow their own organic intelligence to blossom.

Those who have time are encouraged to register for the 4 week option, as this will give the deepest understanding and integration of the course material. Those who cannot commit to 4 weeks due to time constraints are welcome to register for the 2 week option.

Morning Sessions

There will be six morning sessions per week consisting of traditional Mysore style practice on Sunday-Thursdays and a led primary series on Fridays followed by a short discussion group.

Afternoon Sessions

There will be 4 afternoon sessions per week on Monday-Thursdays. Lectures will be supported with specific simple and non strenuous exercises  focused on discovering and deepening the understanding of concepts like body awareness,  bandha, prana and the pranic and apanic energetic patterns. These sessions are designed as an integrated support for the morning Mysore practice.

During these sessions we will also explore the philosophy, history, theory and technique of the Ashtanga Yoga method as it was taught by K. Pattabhi Jois and his grandson R. Sharath Jois in Mysore, India; and how we can apply all of this into our daily modern life in a conscious undogmatic manner.

Practitioners are encouraged to submit questions or topics they see relevant to the course.

Who Should Join and how to apply.
