Ashtanga Yoga Athens | (+30) 6934696156


Intensive - Berlin 2015


  1. – 12. April 2015 with Aris Kapetanakis & Andrea Lutz


Focus of this Intensive will be on refining and strengthening your own practice and will offer a profound understanding of the different aspects of Ashtanga Yoga. The Intensive gives each student the opportunity to explore the deeper levels of their own Practice. The small group setting will ensure an individual support and assistance for your practice and will help you to overcome „fixed“ limits in body and mind.

Zazen (a seating meditation practice) will increase your ability of concentration and awareness.

The Intensive is both part and a requirement for the upcoming Teacher Trainings with Andrea & Aris, and will offer a stable foundation for further Trainings. If you are interested in the Teachers Training we can send you a detailed curriculum. (2015 Primary Series, 2016 Intermediate Series)

Dr. Oliver Hellwig (Indologe and Sanskrit scholar) will give a lecture: „Yoga History & Philosophy in India“

Andrea Kohler (Osteopath) will give a lecture in „Introduction to human Anatomy“
