Ashtanga Mysore & Workshops Weekend with Joey Miles
Grounded and approachable, Joey’s ‘common sense’ approach to Ashtanga stems from his deep respect for the traditional method of practice, combined with experiential
knowledge of alignment and anatomy.
Joey brings a fresh pair of eyes to your practice, giving guidance on how to work with the sequence and how to make the sequence work for you.
Joey’s pragmatism, humour and caring nature will leave you feeling inspired and deeply connected with your practice.

concentration. Use this class to revise the structure of the sequence and to arrive for the weekend experience.

Sunday Afternoon – Recuperative Class.
After an intensive weekend of dynamic yoga practice, the final class will allow time for stillness and re-absorption. Wilfully abandon the techniques used in dynamic practice and
rest in supported poses to create gestures of surrender and openness in the body that facilitate relaxation. Once an atmosphere of stillness and introversion has been created, guided pranayama
practice will lead you towards a profoundly peaceful state.
