Chandana had been practicing yoga since 2000, but only decided to quit her corporate job and delve deeper into the study of yoga later in 2009.
She completed her Yoga and Philosophy Course from The Yoga Institute, Mumbai, in 2010 and it was in 2011 that she found her calling - Ashtanga Yoga. Chandana took up full time studies with Guruji Shri R Sharath Jois in 2011 and under his guidance; she received her Level II Authorization in 2016.
Chandana runs her own Mysore program in Pune, and regularly travels and teaches Mysore rooms and workshops in other shalas around the world.
What to expect from our retreat?
We will begin each day with a revitalizing Ashtanga practice with Chandana, we will follow the traditional Mysore self-practice style and there will be a traditional counted-led primary series class on Friday 27 September. We will have two afternoon back bending workshops with Chandana.
More about our yoga practice with Chandana:
The Mysore setting in Ashtanga Yoga allows individual attention to each student. The class runs in group setting for all levels where the teacher will cater to each individual student as per his/her level and requirement.
Focus will be laid upon the Vinyasa Krama (breath, movement and number system) and appropriate methodology to help the students with their practice.
2 Afternoon Backbending Workshops with Chandana:
4 Pillars of backbending - We are going to work on:
*Isolation and flexibility of the spine
*Core and Back Strength
*Leg strength to support a stable backbend
All this combined will help to deepen your backbend and also incorporate stability in your flexibility.
The rest of our afternoons are free for beach time, rest or free time to do as we please and explore the island of Havelock.
We will allocate times for our fun dive and snorkeling trip. Everyone will be provided with a daily schedule upon arrival.
