Back by popular demand, the legendary Greek-born Kristina Ireland will be hosting another weekend workshop at the Shala in 2014. Kristina taught alongside her late husband Derek Ireland, who was instrumental in bringing ashtanga to Europe. Trained and authorised by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, she has a world-wide reputation and is one of the few teachers to offer the second and third series. She is an inspiring and dedicated teacher who teaches from the heart.

The course will take the following structure:

Friday evening: talk through of primary series
Saturday morning: Mysore self practice
Saturday afternoon: talk through of part of second series (optional)
Sunday morning: Mysore self practice
Sunday afternoon: tips and ways for the practice, based on questions and answers, plus breathing techniques and chanting.


Students should have a reasonably established yoga practice ie working at Level 3 (or about to move to Level 3) or at Mysore level. The course is not suitable for beginners. Knowledge of second series is not essential and the Saturday afternoon session is optional. Early booking is recommended – email us to book. If you are booking for part of the workshop, please advice which session you will not attend.
