In-depth Workshop with Taylor Hunt

I don’t need to introduce Taylor Hunt to those of you who are familiar with Ashtanga Yoga Method. But if you are new to the practice, let me explain:

In 2013, after several extended trips to Mysore, Taylor Hunt, a devoted student and teacher of Ashtanga Yoga, was granted Level 2 Authorization to teach fromSri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) and has had the honor of assisting in the shala in India on two occasions.

Taylor is dedicated to sharing the healing practice with others.Taylor was the first Ashtanga teacher in Ohio granted Level II Authorization . Seeking to preserve the traditional method, he teaches daily Mysore classes at Ashtanga Yoga Columbus and offers workshops around the country. He is also the author of the recently published book, A Way From Darkness, and director of the Trini Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the life-changing practice of Ashtanga with those suffering from addiction. He continues to inspire others through his story of transformation and accessible approach to the practice.

As a part of his mission is to inspire the students from all over the world, during his trip to Europe, Taylor will offer an in-depth workshop in Berlin.

We will be hosting Taylor Hunt from the 29th of March until the 2nd of April 2017.

Friday – Breath, Banda, Drishti
Come prepared to explore the basis of the Ashtanga method known as tristhana.
Tristhana means the three places of attention: breath with bandha (internal energy
locks), asana, and dristhi (gazing point). When practiced simultaneously, the tristhana
method becomes a tool to steady the mind transforming the physical practice into a
moving meditation. In this workshop, we will explore the internal elements of the
practice while taking a deeper look at the fundamental poses of the vinyasa sequence.
Saturday – Foundations (Ground your practice)
In this workshop, we will take an in-depth look at the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method
while exploring the foundational poses of the Primary Series. The standing and seated
poses lay the groundwork for the Ashtanga Yoga method and are designed to
strengthen the legs while opening the hips and hamstrings. They create a grounded and
stable base to further progress in the practice. We will spend ample time exploring
proper alignment and techniques to work through restricted movements. This
workshop is appropriate for all levels of practitioners.
Saturday – Backbends
Backbends are a wonderful way to strengthen the back and balance the body after the
many forward bends of the Primary Series. Learn proper alignment and technique to
safely approach back bending. We will explore a rich collection of backbends from the
Primary and Second series designed to open the front of the body and realign the spine.
This is a fun and challenging workshop for all levels of practitioners.
Sunday – Transitions (Lifting up and jumping back)
In the Ashtanga system, the vinyasa is the thread that links each posture like the beads
of a mala. While lifting up, jumping back, and jumping through may seem daunting at
first, this course lays the groundwork to begin building the core strength and bandha
awareness that allows you to float through the transitions. Learn how to begin moving
through these transitions with ease to bring grace and fluidity to your practice. We will
also spend time looking at the vinyasa count to further cultivate the meditative aspect
of the practice. This is a fun and challenging workshop for all levels of practitioners.
Sunday – Align your Practice (Assisting and Adjusting Workshop)
This course is designed for aspiring and established teachers with an existing knowledge
of the Ashtanga Primary Series. The workshop will prepare you to help varying levels of
practitioners, establish trust, and provide safe, effective adjustments.
