Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series


This class is taught by:

Judith Dokmanovic

I have been practicing yoga for more than fifteen years, absorbing it through many different teaching styles.

My classes are a welcoming space, accessible to all and my teaching is gentle and introspective with an emphasis on flowing sequences guided by the breath, mindfulness and the peaceful meditative resource of yoga nidra.

Maria Mascarenhas.

I first tried yoga when on holiday and couldn’t believe how amazing I felt after the first class. On my return home, I began a regular yoga practice and saw a steady increase in my strength and flexibility as well as in my ability to deal with a demanding job with a new sense of calmness. I was completely hooked!

I completed my teacher training with Debbie Avani in 2014 and have been teaching Vinyasa Flow ever since. Since qualifying, I continue to attend courses and workshops to learn all I can about yoga, both to improve my own practice as well as to pass what I learn on to my students. As well as my original 200hr certification, I have completed an Advanced Yin Teacher Training with Norman Blair and The Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training with the Yoga Nidra Network.

I’m a strong believer that anyone can do yoga and am always looking for ways to make it accessible to everyone. I have completed a chair yoga course and sometimes incorporate this into one to one sessions.

I use my love of nature and the outdoors to influence my classes and I encourage my students to work with the different energies through the wheel of the year to help create a deeper connection to themselves as well as to our natural environment.

I am an ashtanga teacher registered with yoga alliance school RYS 200.I trained with CYS London and I have been really inspired by all the beautiful people that made my journey possible.
My belief is that anybody can and should practice yoga or at least try once in their life.
The benefits that you ll be able to enjoy are infinite.
It not only gives strength to your body but especially to your mind . It helps to live life in a simple way when often we get lost and find trapped in a complicated life.
In the Ashtanga Yoga method nothing is meant to be easy on your first try. This is part of the lesson of the practice. Instead of making the practice easy, the method asks you to make your mind strong. If you accept your failure and learn to love yourself anyway, you’re practicing a valuable life skill. You should feel somewhat overwhelmed in the midst of your first Ashtanga Yoga practice. It gets better after many years!
 
Ashtanga Vinyasa is a strong dynamic practice devised of a sequence of set postures ‘asanas’. Dynamic movement combined with the breath links each pose together creating a flowing movement ‘vinyasa’ which creates strength, heat, stamina, flexibility and mind control, as well as detoxifying the body.

The benefits of Ashtanga Vinyasa are endless. With an emphasis of breath with movement the body is able to create an internal heat. The asanas in the practice realign the body correcting the muscular skeletal system. The dynamic practice builds strength and flexibility. Internal organs are detoxified, hormones balanced and the nervous system strengthened. These physical benefits combined with the mental discipline involved in Ashtanga Vinyasa will ultimately lead to a sense of wellbeing.
