All The Studio Cheshire Events.

Are you interested in joining our 6 week Ashtanga course with Ryan? Starting Friday 20th September from 9:30-11am he will be breaking down the Ashtanga Primary Series sequence.

Okay so what is Ashtanga?

Ashtanga is a traditional series of postures performed in the same sequence everytime. It is a dynamic practice combined with focus on the breath. There are six different level sequences in Ashtanga each getting progressively harder. In traditional practice, students are expected to remember the movements, in preparation for a Mysore. A class which is unguided by the teacher and participants flow through the sequence on their own as a self led practice.

Padahastasana, one of the fundamental postures in Ashtanga

Usually an Ashtanga practice will begin with five repetitions of Surya Namaskara A and five repetitions of Surya Namaskara B, (Sun Salutations) followed by a standing sequence. Following this the practitioner progresses through one of six series and a standard closing sequence.

The six series are:

  1. The Primary series: Yoga Chikitsa, Yoga for Health or Yoga Therapy
  2. The Intermediate series: Nadi Shodhana, The Nerve Purifier (or The Second series)
  3. The Advanced series: Sthira Bhaga, Centering of Strength
  1. Advanced A, or Third series
  2. Advanced B, or Fourth series
  3. Advanced C, or Fifth series
  4. Advanced D, or Sixth series

So the 6 week course focuses on the Primary Series, whats that?

For our course Ryan will be focusing on the Primary Series Sequence. The Start of all the Ashtanga Series. Here is a rough breakdown of what you can expect on the course week by week.

Week One – Welcome talk about Ashtanga, Opening chant and handouts will be provided. A look at Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara A and B) and some of the fundamental postures.

Week Two – Fundamental Asana breakdown

Saturday April 27th

The Studio had such a great day at the James Milner Foundation event at the end of last month! We had an entire afternoon of back to back fitness classes, including Insanity, body attack, body combat, and a yoga class to top it off. Phew. Thank god this was combined by DELICIOUS healthy cocktail drinks provided by Dovetail drink (You need to check these guys out!). The perfect pick me up. Not to mention the amazing goody-bags from our partners: I SAW IT FIRST, Cowherd’s juicer, The Alchemist, James Milner Foundation and Rosso restaurant. We were very spoilt! Totally worth the work-out. 

This amazing day was all in aid of a brilliant cause – The James Milner Foundation. This incredible charity raises money to promote healthy recreation for the benefit of young people in the United Kingdom by the development, improvement and provision of opportunities in sports such as football, rugby, cricket…and of course, yoga!

Most importantly none of this would have been possible without the awesome contribution from all the fantastic, powerful and beautiful ladies involved. We want to say a massive thank you for all coming along and making the day possible!

As many of you know, our yoga studio is a space that holds a variety of hot yoga and fitness classes. But our vision is to utilize the studio for events exactly like this one! The studio is a space where we can open up the doors, turn the heat up and get the music blaring! The Studio are here to create an environment where our community can get together, learn something new, and most of all have fun! 

So keep your eyes peeled on our Instagram and Facebook page @thestudiocheshire to be the first to find out about our up and coming events. 

Love, The Studio
