A leading yoga expert from America is to conduct workshops in Berkhampsted.

David Garrigues, director of the Ashtanga Yoga School of Philadelphia, has been invited to return to the BAYoga Studio and will hold the sessions around the town.

The weekend workshops run from Friday, June 5 until Sunday, June 7.

A spokeswoman for BAYoga said: “David is one of the few US teachers certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga by the late world-renowned yoga master Sri K Pattabhi Jois, so it’s an honour to have him with us once more.

“The classes are suitable for Ashtanga Yoga students of all levels of ability. So if you are currently a “primary series” student the workshops would still be suitable, as David himself said ‘anyone who is adventurous and wants to give the classes a try is welcome’.

“The workshops are designed to complement one another, so you could book to join us for the whole weekend or choose individual sessions.”

Examples of sessions include looking at dynamism and stability in standing postures; pranayama, chanting and discussion of the central role breathing plays in attaining success in practice; arm balances and inversions; keys to building strength in second series - developing mental or energetic strength.

You can book for individual workshops, or join for the whole weekend.
