Westerners open the New Year in revelry, however, in contrast, the Balinese open their New Year in silence. This is called Nyepi Day, the Balinese day of Silence, which falls on the day following the dark moon of the spring equinox, and opens a new year of the Saka Hindu era which began in 78 A.D.

clayton eka pada AMSEstablished in your primary series Astanga practice?

Intermediate Series, also called ‘Nadi Shodhana’ meaning ‘the cleansing of the nervous system’, opens to the energetic dimension of Astanga Yoga. With deeper backbends, twisting, hip opening and balancing postures, Intermediate Series builds upon the foundation of Primary Series and it is designed to strengthen the entire body, spine and nervous system – ultimately allowing the energy to flow continuously and uninterruptedly.

In this weekend workshop, the full 2nd series of Astanga Yoga will be presented and made accessible by breaking it down into parts and progressively present the new postures of the Intermediate Series, such as Pashanana, Kapotasana, Pinchamayurasana and Mukta Hasta Shirshasana addressing foundations of technique, alignment and injury prevention.

Clayton Horton is authorized to teach Intermediate Series directly from the KPJAYI of Mysore. He will make these new postures accessible and fun to play with, while enabling you to inform and inspire your practice and understanding of yoga as a whole.

Suitable for those who have a regular and consistent Primary Series practice along with proficient back bending.

Amsterdam Intermediate Series Ashtanga Yoga Workshops @ Delight Yoga
Sep 12 @ 9:30 am – Sep 13 @ 5:30 pm

clayton eka pada AMSEstablished in your primary series Astanga practice?

Intermediate Series, also called ‘Nadi Shodhana’ meaning ‘the cleansing of the nervous system’, opens to the energetic dimension of Astanga Yoga. With deeper backbends, twisting, hip opening and balancing postures, Intermediate Series builds upon the foundation of Primary Series and it is designed to strengthen the entire body, spine and nervous system – ultimately allowing the energy to flow continuously and uninterruptedly.

In this weekend workshop, the full 2nd series of Astanga Yoga will be presented and made accessible by breaking it down into parts and progressively present the new postures of the Intermediate Series, such as Pashanana, Kapotasana, Pinchamayurasana and Mukta Hasta Shirshasana addressing foundations of technique, alignment and injury prevention.

Clayton Horton is authorized to teach Intermediate Series directly from the KPJAYI of Mysore. He will make these new postures accessible and fun to play with, while enabling you to inform and inspire your practice and understanding of yoga as a whole.

Suitable for those who have a regular and consistent Primary Series practice along with proficient back bending.
