The intensives are informal, small group and hands on classes at the small Goa style yoga shala “uma iis tasi “at Beto Tasi beach near Dili International Airport. There is lots of room for bringing the technical parts into practice by repetition, trial and error , and by helping eachother with the various practices as we can learn a lot of other people’s practice. And many aspects of the 8 limbs of yoga are covered. Additionally Buddhist practices are ordered to create a holistic practice.

It is a great getaway for the Dili expat or the Dili visitor who likes to add a bit of yoga time to there Dili stay .

Bridging primary to intermediate.
Strategically scheduled between the Saturday morning LED primary class and Sunday morning LED beyond primary class (at the Ocean View location an eight minutes beach walk away from the shala) were we move into the intermediate series. This intensive is the bridge between primary and intermediate by moving from primary into intermediate with a strong focus on back bending. As primary is concentrating on forward bends, intermediate starts with deeper back bends. A condition according the KPJAY institute to start intermediate is to be able to drop back into Urdhva Dhanurasana on your own. Hence we will be working toward that, and beyond.
Module primary ; investigation into Ashtanga primary series
Module back bend : back bend class
