If you would like to develop an Ashtanga yoga self-practice that allows you to practice whenever and wherever you like and/or you are interested in joining my self-practice group 3 times a week, then this workshop is for you! 

KPJAYI authorized teacher Kaz Castillo will take us through the fundamental postures, focusing on the 3-pillar-foundations of ashtanga yoga: breath, posture and focus. With her we will explore how we can incorporate this yoga practice, or sadhana, in our day-to-day lives, creating a beautiful balance between strength and flexibility, ease and the courage to meet our real life challenges.

A dedicated ashtanga practitioner, Kaz received the blessing to teach from her teacher, KPJAYI Director and yoga exponent Sharath Jois. Since 2013, she has been traveling and teaching in the Philippines, San Francisco, across Europe and Japan. Kaz is currently facilitating a traditional ashtanga program called Mysore Zamalek at Nūn Center in Cairo.

The workshop will be divided into three 2-hour classes
