One of the defining features of Ashtanga Yoga is its organisation into series of postures, where practitioners follow set sequences and learn each posture once they have mastered the previous one.
Dr Dani Ceccarelli of Magnetic Island Yoga in Queensland shares how she maintained her yoga practice while her children were small, saying a flexible approach can help.
Co-founder of our Centre Greg Cooper welcomes friend & fellow Ashtangi Dr Dani Ceccarelli from Magnetic Island Yoga in Queensland, who will help out in the studio and run several workshops mid September.
Dr Dani Ceccarelli’s approach to teaching yoga is making it accessible to people of varying physical abilities so that as many as possible benefit from it. In two weeks’ time we welcome Dani to our Centre where she will run several workshops – we are now taking bookings.
“Do not take life’s experiences too seriously and above all do not let them hurt you for in reality they are nothing but dream experiences. If circumstances are bad and you have to bear them, do not make them part of yourself. Play your part in life but never forget that it is only a role.”- Praramahansa Yogananda.
Yoga Teacher Amanda Stead at the Ashtanga Yoga Centre of Melbourne shares some tips on how to help your body adapt to seasonal change:
Ayurveda tells us that ‘diseases are generated at the junctions of the seasons’, the moment when one season changes into another.
Whenever our environment (internal or external) changes, our systems must change with it, and every time we adapt poorly we expose ourselves the the possibility of disease. – Dr. Robert E. Svoboda
In Melbourne our weather is very erratic and especially in the springtime. You may be noticing differences in your practice. It is not uncommon for example, to feel unusually stiff or to experience the shadow of an old injury. Viruses thrive in the winds of change.
