Vinyasa Yoga – Building Blocks


Facebook: Link to EVENT


“A house must be built on solid foundations if it is to last. The same principle applies to man, otherwise he too will sink back into the soft ground and becomes swallowed up by the world of illusion.”

Sai Baba



Kl 9:30-11:30

Saturday, 9 September 2017



Yogatreats, Kastellgatan 22, Gothenburg, Sweden

Facilities: one bathroom, changing rooms but no shower, small kitchen area



Vinyasa Yoga Basics + breathing techniques & relaxation


We will explore

*Sun salutations & the vinyasa-sequence of plank-cobra/updog-downdog

*How to protect your wrists, shoulders and lower back

*Common (vinyasa) yoga poses

*Breathing techniques, including Ujjayi pranayama

*A simple relaxation and body awareness technique


The class will be a longer, slower and more detailed class than a regular class. It will challenge your strength, your flexibility and give you time to relax and restore.

The dynamic vinyasa yoga builds strength and releases tensions in body, breath and mind, preparing you for deeper states of concentration and meditation.


This workshop is for you if:

*you are new to (vinyasa) yoga and want to learn the basics in more detail than in your regular class

*you have practiced vinyasa yoga before but want to work more thoroughly on the details


Teaching will be in SWEDISH if only Swedish speaking practitioners, also in ENGLISH if needed.



  • Yoga mats, blocks, straps and blankets are available at the venue at no extra cost, but you can bring your own if you want.
  • Wear clothes that allow you to move freely. Tip: wear a top/shirt that doesn’t slide over your face when you turn your torso up-side down.
  • Come to class on an empty stomach, so no larger meals 3-4 hours before class. If you’re very hungry you can eat something light, maybe a fruit, before class. On an empty stomach it’s easier to release tension in the body and mind.
