Traditional Ashtanga Yoga Shala Phuket (TAYSP) offers the ideal program for experienced practitioners and beginners either one wish to deepen the practice or start the yoga journey. The course is organized in a way where participants discover a lot of new information and develop useful skills to cover different aspects of yoga practice. The schedules of daily classes, healthy food, comfortable accommodation, friendly atmosphere create perfect conditions for the student to progress quickly and develop an enjoyable personal practice bringing health to body and mind.During the course we study the main aspects and principles of Ashtanga Yoga and implement the knowledge into the practice.

We build the solid practice based on vinyasa system, applying bandhas, drishti and using Ujayi breath. We discover the foundation of each asana and its modifications, body alignment, we learn therapeutic effect of asanas and we do additional trainings for building the strength and flexibility to improve the practice. We take a journey to explore inner and outer sequence of Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series to make a daily asana practice a meditation experience.The course also includes training in pranayama practice. Students are guided to practice a number of pranayama techniques consistently, they take their time to deepen the understanding of this ancient practice and strengthen the control of the breath.

During the course we learn kriya techniques – ancient purification exercises which help to purify the body and prepare ourselves for pranayama and asana practice. The students are provided with basic equipment for these cleansing practices.

Intensive yoga course is not complete without focusing on work with the mind. Even the asana, pranayama and kriya required a deep concentration students get additional experience and training in yoga nidra and meditation. It helps to change the habitual patterns of the mind which is essential for self development and inner growth.

Students are also introduced to yoga philosophy and main ancient yoga texts as it gives a strong theoretical foundation of the practice.
