The Primary Series of Ashtanga yoga (Yoga Chikitsa)

In each class we will practice about the first half of the primary series + some extra drills.

New students are recommended to start from the Ashtanga starter course that takes place from 19.30 – 20.30 (4 Tuesdays).

Home practice & health benefits

Ashtanga yoga is meant to be practiced individually as a personal and tailored practice.

Home practice is one of the biggest strengths of ashtanga yoga, and you will learn to internalise the practice more quickly, increase your concentration and focus, and learn to ride your breath, just like a bird is surfing on the current of the wind.

In best cases you will see improvements of strength, endurance, flexibility and digestion already after a few months of regular practice, and regulation of the nervous system.

For whom?

  • These classes are ideal for you who is already familiar with the practice of ashtanga yoga, learning the primary series, and wants to practice in a led class setting.
  • You are already familiar with sun salutations, and the ujjayi breathing technique feels natural to you.

Meet your teacher

Alex is a Swedish-speaking Finn who started to practice yoga at home in 2013, and has been practicing and teaching hatha and vinyasa yoga since 2014 (Seasonal Yoga). During the summer of 2015 Alex fell in love with the depth of the ashtanga yoga practice in 2015 with his teachers in Helsingin Astanga Joogakoulu in their summer camp in Houtskari (Petri Räisänen & Juha Javanainen). Since then Alex has been teaching over 3000 hours of yoga classes with a wide range of people, while managing Raseborgs Yogaskola, and has actively been practicing with different world renowned teachers on different workshop, such as Eddie Stern, Kino McGregor, Simon Borg-Olivier, and also online courses with David Garrigues and online led classes with David Swenson and Sharath Jois.

“To me it’s important that the practices are taught in a safe, healthy and effective way for each student. As a yoga teacher it is important to understand that all people are different, and certain yoga postures and practices are simply not suitable for everybody.

In my teaching style you will learn to turn your senses inward (pratyāhāra), you will improve your focus and learn to practice to the rhythm of your own breath. The meditation and concentration makes the practice meaningful, and is a gateway to your inner dimensions. A yoga practice should be a practice in concentration and meditation. In ashtanga and hatha yoga we use our bodies to practice and achieve this.

We start simple, and the more you practice, the more you will learn at your own ideal pace while your body becomes stronger and softer, and your mind becomes more focused.”
