Matt Ryan will be teaching a three hour three part Ashtanga Yoga intensive on Saturday 29th August at the amazing Space at the Mill venue in Manchester city centre. Matt has been teaching and practicing Ashtanga Yoga for over 20 years and has taught in Europe India and North America. There will be limited places available which will allow for appropriate social distancing measures in the studio.

Details of the sessions are as follows :

9am-10.30am  Primary Series Led Class

In a led class the teacher calls out the names of the postures in sequence and counts the correct vinyasa in traditional Sanskrit with all students moving together as a group. Learning the correct vinyasa gives the student a deeper understanding of the practice. Matt will be adding in suggestions , advice and techniques to the session to allow each student to find their own unique expression of the postures.

10.30am-11.15am Introduction to 2nd Series

In the second part of the intensive Matt will be leading the students through as much of the Ashtanga Yoga intermediate sequence (AKA second series) as seems appropriate for the group. He’ll  be offering alternatives and guidance along the way and explain methods and techniques to make the second series feel more accessible and user-friendly.

11.15am-12pm Backbending

The final part of this 3 hour intensive Matt will be dipping into his 20+ years ‘asana tool bag’ with techniques and methods to help deepen into back bends and also to give students their own little backbend sequence to take home.

The session will end with Matt’s ‘Mind & Body Letting Go Deep Relaxation Experience’.
