uma iis tasi weekend yoga intensives

Weekend yoga  intensives in Dili, Timor Leste

Jpeg
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.
The intensive are build from modules and the student has the freedom to choose and combine the modules to serve his or her needs. There is time for Q&A and no particular level is necessary. 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 .
Yang vs yin intensive
We will be investigating earth’s gravitational field from yang and yin angles. Working against with vinyasa technics, inversions, jump backs and through. With gravity by means of surrender and letting go, passive/ yin stretching. Towards it by exploring the fear of falling. Away from it by means of meditation.
Module yang ; vinyasa technic (a small part of the class could be practiced on the beach and in the ocean, please bring beach wear and towel if you like to participate. Shower available.)
Module yin : yin yoga, pranayama and meditation

Total hip workout
An intensive of giving the hips a total workout using various different technics. Applying the hip mobility in various arm balance asana, and finally to get the benefits of being able to sit more comfortable for a longer period of time.
Module hip opening & arm balance ; passive and active stretching, strengthening, lengthening and Thai massage technics
Module yin yoga ; passive stretching, pranayama and meditation
Module mantra ; chanting of various Hindu mantras

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

A simple and small Goa style yoga shala right on the beach near Dili International Airport. Dili Ashtanga Yoga is holding space here for small and personal in-depth yoga classes/immersions and workshops to investigate all the 8 limbs of the yoga practice . A great nearby spot to escape Dili’s city life and your daily life by the the practices of yoga. The classes can be inside, semi outside or on the beach and even in the water. Mediation, breathe exercises, yoga asana, chanting, relaxation and more will be moved into.
Beto Tasi has a Goa feel without the tourists.

Yoga schedule March 2017

Last year March Ahimsa-Ka established Dili Ashthanga Yoga, and it will continue for this year with a similar schedule. The early morning classes either at Ocean View or Dili Wellness both serve as the back bone for all the other yoga classes . Though any class can be followed as a stand alonealone, the complete yoga schedule is fabricated to create a more complete yoga practice and understanding.

The Tuesday and Thursday morning can be used for a Mysore style approach, the weekend early morning classes for a LED style class, the other days are an hybrid of this 2 styles.

The late weekend morning classes and Tuesday lunch class are ideal for a gentle flow with equal focus on strengthening, lengthening, activation and relaxation.

2 new classes on Saturday @ Dili Wellness

The weekend morning classes 6 to 8 a.m. will be at Ocean View

Ayurveda within Yoga
At Dili Wellness upstairs studio
Saturday morning 10.00 to 11.30 a.m.
These yoga classes are the practical follow up of last years ayurveda & yoga classes. Last year sessions where mostly informatif, the current sessions will be yoga asana based from the ayurvedic spectrum. The classes could focus on a particular body constitution or body sheet (Dosha), focussing on balancing all 3 Dosha, or giving different practices to different students to balance their particular body constitution . No prior yoga or ayurvedic experience is necessary and the classes are for all levels. For every new student Ahimsa-Ka will try to determine their individual constitution and imbalances and work towards a balancing yoga session with the help of yoga asana, pranayama and meditation technics. Both sciences, ayurveda and yoga, are used as tools to establish and maintain an equilibrium of a healthy body, steady mind in an ever changing environment.
Beyond asana; moving into the field of breathe and brain
At Dili Wellness upstairs studio
Saturday 15.15 to 16.45 p.m.
The amount of actual poses will be limited in this class, and we will do a fairly amount of sitting. A main focus of yoga is breathe, in particular a deep long breathe. Which is what we will explore and exercise in this class. In an hour and a half we will explore various breathe exercises to deepen and lengthen the breathe, together with some medication and relaxation technics. Which can be all complimentary to your diving or running practice and especially to your general well being.
No prior experience of yoga is necessary, though could be beneficial. As for yoga asana classes try to arrive with an empty stomach .

Yoga into 2017, Timor Leste

intentional yoga Timor Leste

an open workshop of yoga to cultivate, nourish and stimulate the self practice of yoga

all the yoga classes will be focused on inward investigation and cultivating awareness. The goal the same the methods can be different. The different classes cover different aspects of the system of yoga.

Depending on your time and availability you can opt for the drop in rate, or buy a multiple time card (2 month valid, $200) that will allow you to have 24 classes (if bought between 26th and Jan 1st, after Jan 1st it will be back to the normal rate 20x $200) and can be used for any class (1.5 or 2 hour) between Dec 26th and Jan 15th

Whatever your intention is in life, if you feel better in your body it will be probably succeed a bit more easier. And that is where yoga comes in, it starts with creating awareness, internal communication. The more regular your practice the faster you can reap the fruits.

The early morning classes “Ashthanga Mysore ” are mixed with the regular morning class as both focus on the physical body, to lengthen and strengthen, and both work with a sequence which can be personally modified.

The special classes go into depth of one aspect of yoga asana and allow more time practice.

The later afternoon classes depends on the student’s requests and interested and can go into a more yin practice, more into pranayama and or meditation. For example when you like the yoga practice to benefit your diving you may want request more pranayama to deepen and lengthen the breathe. If your focus is to enhance your running practice you may like to do a yin practice to work on your joints.

Additionally on request, if enough people are interested , the weekend could be used to do excursions to do districts and to do yoga on location. Please inquire and register before Dec 5th for the excursions. If the outings are happening the weekend classes in Dili will be canceled and some of the classes will be taught on location.
