18. October - Kl 14.00

David Roche’s workshops in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga comprise an introduction to Ashtanga Yoga in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois as well as step by step progression through Primary and/or Intermediate series. The workshops include the use of specific imagery to aid focus, incorporating the imagination to guide the investigation of anti-gravity areas of lift within the human body, thereby assisting the student in finding an efficient use of breath and a higher level of awareness, rhythm, balance and flow in the execution of asanas.

David has studied and taught movement for 47 years. His teaching incorporates the lessons gleaned from his career as a dancer (notably with The Pearl Lang Company, The Mary Anthony Company and the Martha Graham Company), choreographer, artist and yogin. David references materials gleaned from the study of human anatomy, Anatomy Trains, Feldenkrais, Body-Mind Centering, Ideokinesis, Jikkyo Jutsu and modern dance in presenting workshops.   David was Certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga by his Guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India in 2002.
