PRANA VASHYA YOGA Summer Immersion in Prague, 11-13th of August 2017

Let me invite you to Prague, Czech Republic, for Prana Vashya Yoga Summer Immersion 2017.

During this weekend workshop you will be initiated into exceptional yet authentic approach to yoga asana practice called Prana Vashya Yoga, which I studied in Mysore (South India) between 2007 and 2010 under the guidance of yogacharya Vinay Kumar.

We will focus on principles of this unique breath-centred yoga sequence combining both asana and pranayama into one integrated approach. We will go through Prana Vashya primary series and you will experience it’s profound effect on both physical and psychological levels.      

I have taught Prana Vashya to hundreds of people of all levels since 2009 when I was certified as a second European teacher. In order to do it effectively, I have developed comprehensive methodology and some preparatory practices, which I will share at the workshop as well.

The workshop will be held in a homely yoga studio near by a big park. The place is still within a walking distance from the city center, so you will have great opportunity to explore the beauty of Prague as well.
