When: Thursday evenings 6.30pm – 7.30pm May 9th – June 13th 2019
Where: the Sanctuary, Stanhope St, Dublin 7
Community Ashtanga Yoga for beginners is a welcoming, inclusive, safe and collaborative space that welcomes everybody no matter shape, size, colour, ethnicity, sexuality etc., and its main purpose is to bring mental well-being, stability, mind-body connection and movement to the practitioners. Sometimes inertia can leads to anxiety, depression, lack of self-love and self-respect, and therefore need for something to lift us up emerges. The commitment to walking the path towards personal growth takes strength of body, mind, and spirit and is accessible to each and every one of us.
Ashtanga yoga translates to Eight-Limbed Yoga, which refers to the eight spiritual practices outlined by Indian philosopher Patanjali in his book Yoga Sutra. A dedicated ashtangi shows up to the mat six days a week, resting on Saturday, and refraining from practice on the days that the new and full moons fall during the month.
