Ashtanga Yoga Weekend with Paul Frechtling 15-17 April 2016

Ashtanga Yoga Weekend with Paul Frechtling 15-17 April 2016

This weekend workshop, comprising four sessions, is an excellent comprehensive introduction to and progressive practise on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Paul Frechtling has a very personalised approach to teaching Ashtanga, preferring to work closely with individuals in smaller groups, as opposed to large groups.

What this means for you as far as attending this series of sessions is a refinement to your practise and the potential to experience the full range of your ability – under the guidance of a very advanced senior teacher. Paul is known for his easy going, laid back approach that is “without ego”, accessible, and fun.

This weekend workshop is ideal for:

  • Beginners to yoga who are generally physically fit with no mobility issues
  • Regular practitioners in other styles who are interested to get a proper introduction to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
  • Teachers who want to further their own practise or teaching technique, and
  • Intermediate to advanced practitioners who would like to refine and extend their practise to the next level, by working with one of Australia’s best senior Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teachers.

When:  Friday 15 April 6:30-8:30pm (Led Practice)  |   Saturday 16 April 6-9:30am (MYSORE)   |  Saturday 1-4pm (Led Workshop Practise and Refinement) |   Sunday 17 April 6-9:30am (MYSORE)

“Having trained with Paul, he is known for his easy going, laid back approach that is “without ego”, accessible, and fun. The benefits from working and practising with Paul are incredible and palpable from your first class. He embodies a natural grace, soft focus, confidence and ease from years of teaching and practise. This is accompanied by a laid back easy manner and joyful light humour. The sum of which magically ignites a natural sense of joy in one’s practise, a spontaneous expansion and openness in the body, successfully bringing about and tapping into the student’s full potential on the mat. Paul is one of Australia’s most senior Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga instructors, and this is an experience not to be missed.” – Monica Anderson, Director CYS

HOW DO THE FOUR SESSIONS WORK?

Enrolment is for all four sessions. This is designed to allow progressive work over the course of the weekend in both formats – a group led practise, and Mysore (one-on-one) practise.

The Mysore session is staggered in three waves – three groups of 6 students. It is important to arrive on time at your designated time, so Paul can begin working with you, whilst transitioning the earlier group to finish the latter part of their practise. The start times for Mysore sessions are 6am, 7am, and 8am. Full practise for each group of six runs for an hour and a half from the time they commence. You are welcome to leave at the end of your practise. The last wave, will finish their practise at 9:30am. Once you have enrolled for all four sessions, we will email you your designated start time for your two Mysore sessions. There are six slots for each wave.

  • Mysore group 1: 6am-7:30am (max 6 students)
  • Mysore group 2: 7am-8:30am (max 6 students)
  • Mysore group 3: 8am-9:30am (max 6 students)

ABOUT PAUL FRECHTLING

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga has been a big part of Paul’s life for the last 20 years. He was introduced to yoga in the late eighties and began a dedicated daily Ashtanga practice around 1992. Finding the flow of breath and postures of Ashtanga so beneficial for both body and mind, Paul began teaching this style to others so they could also feel the benefits. Paul now teaches in Sydney and the Blue Mountains.

Paul has been to Mysore, India to study under the master Sri K Pattabhi Jois and his grandson, Sharath, who gave him authorisation to teach. Other teachers who have greatly influenced him have been Graeme Northfield, Peter Swanson and Eileen Hall.

He teaches with care and understanding to slowly cultivate deeper awareness and encourage a daily practice.

Paul has studied Anatomy and Physiology to encourage greater body awareness, pranayama and meditation. He has worked with people with injuries and illness and found Ashtanga Yoga to be beneficial for all types of people.

What is Ashtanga MYSORE? by Kat Sadler

Ashtanga MYSORE – Kat Sadler teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, a strong and dynamic style of yoga, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:45PM. Tuesday is an Ashtanga Led Class. Thursday is an Ashtanga MYSORE class.

Paul Frechtling Ashtanga YogaMYSORE style is the traditional way of practicing Ashtanga Yoga. Rather than being led through the Ashtanga sequence as a class, each student moves through the series at their own pace with individual instruction and hands-on adjustment provided by the teacher. This type of environment supports each individual to work to his or her full capacity. It is the safest way to learn Ashtanga Yoga, with students repeating postures until they area comfortable enough to progress.

MYSORE classes are open to anyone, from beginners to advanced students and from young to old, regardless of fitness, strength or flexibility. Beginners start with a shorter practice but are provided more one-on-one assistance from the teacher. Experienced students work independently through the practice, becoming more attuned to his or her breath, whilst focusing the mind and cultivating calmness.

Benefits of a MYSORE class

1. It is open to anyone and everyone. You work at your own pace and can spend more time on the postures you find challenging.

2. You can show up anytime. No need to rush from work to class. You only need to arrive early enough to finish your practice before the end of the class.

3. Learn how to cultivate mindfulness by moving in time with your breath rather than the teacher’s count.

Paul Frechtling - Expert Ashtanga Yoga Teacher

FAQs

1. What if I forget what to do next? Just ask the teacher!

2. Is it OK to sit in meditation before or after my practice?
Absolutely.

3. How do I stop my mind from wandering? This is something that everyone struggles with. Focus your attention on your breath or drishti (gazing point) and if you find your mind wandering again, gently bring it back to your practice.
