Yoga

Our aim is to offer sessions from the
best teachers, teaching a broad range
of truly authentic styles of yoga in a
great environment; so you could find
a class suited to you and so that yoga
could and would be for everyone –
regardless of age, size, gender, fitness,
diet and lifestyle.

 

Our main principle is to honour the tradition of yoga
and to create a sense of entering a sacred space.

We wanted to dispel the illusion about who can practice
yoga because it is truly for everyone – hence, everyone is welcome at Spirit Space. 

The Mysore style of leading lessons can be considered one of the key characteristics that distinguishes the way in which Ashtanga yoga teaches are taught from other yoga styles and systems.

 

This is a traditional approach, where the teacher does not appear in front of the students, do not practice and does not lead the lessons en masse with loud guidance to individual yoga positions. On the contrary, it moves quietly, fluently among students, observes their practice and individually provides advice, guidance or assistance. It teaches students each series step by step, position by position, technically and therapeutically correct.

 

So it is something between a public-led yoga lesson and a private lesson. The teacher has enough time and space for individual guidance and deepening of students practice, but at the same time the lesson does not lack energy and positive charge, which can be created by a group of like-minded yoga fools and enthusiasts.

 

A significant advantage of Mysore-style lessons is the financial dimension, where the student can experience the individual approach of the teacher at a significantly lower price than a private lesson.

Ashtanga yoga EXPLORATION

Lecturer
Eva Staníková

a traditional dynamic healing style of yoga, which is characterized by smooth transitions between individual positions, which follow each other in the exact order and thus form a comprehensive system.

What is important in the practice of Ashtanga yoga is the breath with which the individual positions are intertwined and which has an important healing and concentration role.

Thanks to the exact sequence of positions, after some time when we remember the order, we no longer have to focus on what position follows, but on the contrary, we can concentrate on the breath and work with the mind.

The goal of the practice of Ashtanga yoga is not only purification on a physical level, but above all control of our mind, which is often the main creator of our problems and diseases.

Ashtanga yoga exploration lessons are intended for the general public. Every hour we focus on one important principle of Ashtanga yoga. We will look for position modifications so  the lesson can be for a more advanced practitioner and a complete beginner. The lesson is therefore suitable for all levels. 

We end each hour with a 10-minute breathing exercise and relaxation

Ashtanga yoga, sometimes referred to as Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, is a style of yoga that was developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and T. Krishnamacharya in the 20th century. They claimed it originated from a system of Hatha yoga described in the ancient text, the "Yoga Korunta." Used in this context, the term, Ashtanga yoga, refers to this particular style of yoga.

Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic, flowing style that connects the movement of the body with the breath. The method stresses the importance of daily practice of a set series of movements. There are six series of Ashtanga yoga sequences, which the student progresses through at their own pace.

We finish each class with 20 minuts of meditaiton.
