LEARN an ASHTANGA RESTORE SEQUENCE with Ben HEMSON-STRUTHERS

£29.62

The restorative way of practicing will allow you to maintain your practice for a full lifetime and help you avoid overstrain

     

“The Astanga yoga practise is a breathing practise, the rest is just bending.” - Sri. K Pattabhi Jois

Applying the breath correctly results in lightness and ease in the practice, and naturally brings the mind towards concentration and stillness.

The Astanga Vinyasa Primary Series offers a specific sequence of postures to help develop a balance between strength and flexibility. The sequence is also designed to introduce a new student to a good foundation in body movement. The first building blocks include building strength in the body (especially the upper body and core canister), opening up the backline of the body and developing stamina and endurance.

With regular practice the body will change and transform. But we also want to be sure that we move through this transformation process with patience and grace. Sometimes the quality of our practice becomes lost in the goal of completing the next posture. Understanding the restorative way of practicing will allow you to maintain your practice for a full lifetime and help you avoid overstrain and injuries.


 

Ben's Bio

Ben completed his first teacher training with Jim Harrington and went on to further study with Matthew Sweeney. His personal practice includes the Intermediate Ashtanga series, as well as the Vinyasa Krama Sequences of Matthew Sweeney—Chandra, the Moon sequence; Simha, the Lion Sequence; and Baddha, the Bound sequence. Ben loves movement in all expressions and can be found off the yoga mat hiking, surfing and playing like a child in a tree. Beyond the physical, Ben’s personal exploration of yoga has also inspired him to travel to India, start Vipassana Meditation, pursue Yoga Philosophy and move into a vegetarian diet. He has a quirky love for fermented foods and will happily trade recipes for kimchi or kombucha.
