Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga 4 Day Intensive

SANTIAGO, CHILE

August 22nd – 25th, 2019

with John Scott & Teaching Team

TRANSCENDENTAL ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA (“AVY”),

THE SANSKRIT COUNTED METHOD with JOHN SCOTT

Patanjali said there were Three Types of Practitioners
The Ordinary, The Disciplined and The ExtraOrdinary

Still today there are AVY Practitioners who don’t know there is a ‘Count’
There are Practitioners who have heard the ‘Count’
There are those Practitioners who ‘Count’

Join John Scott & Teaching Team ( 3 assistants )

For this 4 Day Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Sanskrit Counted Method Intensive John will pass to you the student like a transcendental teacher ‘The Count’ as a practice mantra to the student, for the student to hear, recite and learn. The role of the teacher is to pass the practice technique to the student and for the student to take the method themselves to become independent and accountable to oneself.

The Intensive

Come together as one practice group, grounded, surrounded and protected by the principles of Yoga, share in a common intension to focus together, to grow together, blossom together and shine together.

Immerse yourself in the Sanskrit Counted Mantra to discard all distracting thoughts, leaving the ordinary thinking mind behind to flow fully in the senses arriving in the Present Moment

This intensive leads you to the door of Infinite Potential, ‘NOW’ is your opportunity to ‘Jump Through’, learn to count, bring your own mind into Deep Focus and Concentration

Fly above your limited conditioned self and realise the ExtraOrdinary

 The Timetable
