Mysore Morning Practice & in-depth Ashtanga Workshop with Kirsten and Mitchell, two direct students of Sri K Pattabhi Jois and long-term teachers of the traditional Ashtanga Yoga system.
Join us in Palma de Mallorca for five days of intense exploration of the traditional Ashtanga yoga approach to practice, under the experienced, skillful and compassionate guidance of two Level 2 authorized teachers.
In addition to the Mysore-classes, there will be workshop classes focused on the ashtanga system/practice:
Question & Answer Session: A space for students to ask general and specific practice-related questions, followed by a closer look at 'yoga trishtana‘, an important aspect of the ashtanga practice. Here, we’ll look at how this combination of bandha, gaze and breath allows us to develop and focus our awareness through practice.
Ashtanga Practice Fundamentals: Asana Trouble-Shooting & Alignment: In these experiential sessions we will address common issues and questions in asana practice. We will also discuss and suggest approaches to practice and offer guidance about avoiding, and recovering, from injury.
All levels of practice are welcome, from beginners to Advanced.
Price is 130 euros.

About Kirsten Berg and Mitchell Gold:
After completing university studies (Classics/Latin), Kirsten began exploring yoga asana on a trip to India in 1993. A few years later, she moved to India with a one-way ticket and intention to find a yoga practice that ‘spoke’ to her. She found inspiration along this journey with yogi Clive Sheridan, and technique at the Iyengar Yoga Study Center in Rishikesh with Rudra Dev. In 1996, she started ashtanga with Rolf Naujokat knew this was the practice for he; she became Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’ student 6 months later. Kirsten received Guruji’s blessing/authorisation to teach in 1999, and is one of few students in the world to study the Advanced ‘A’ series directly under his, and Sharath’s, guidance. She was also one of the last students to study the separate ashtanga pranayama sequence with Jois. Kirsten and Rolf moved to Southeast Asia from Goa in 1999, where they taught seasonal classes in Ubud, and started the first ashtanga program in South Thailand (2001), known as Ashtanga Yoga Koh Phangan, which she still runs.
Kirsten is also an artist and shows her work annually at Burning Man.
Mitchell first came to India in 1979 to deepen his knowledge of ‘spiritual pursuits’. He went back to the west to finish his degree at Wharton and pursue business and bodywork. After years of searching for the right practice, he began ashtanga yoga in 2000, and has been a dedicated practitioner ever since. Mitchell received Guruji’s authorisation to teach in 2003. Mitchell also studied intensively (3 yrs) with senior teacher Dena Kingsberg in Australia in addition to his yearly studies with Sri K. P. Jois.
Mitchell is also a talented and knowledgeable bodyworker. He is certified as an Advanced practitioner of Structural Integration, also known as “Rolfing”. Mitchell started studying different bodywork methods 35 years ago (Swedish-Esalen, Traeger, Thai) and has focused on the “Rolfing” method for the last 15 years . He is available for sessions upon request. Mitchell also runs “Intro to Bodywork” and Introductory Rolfing courses worldwide.
