Ashtanga Month South of France, July 2024
Ashtanga South of France with Adam Keen
July 1st - 28th, 2024
Adam is delighted to be teaching for the entire month of July 2024 at the bijou studio of Ashtanga Yoga Golfe Juan, located on the Côte d’Azur, between Antibes and Cannes.
This is a unique opportunity to learn in a small group setting and received individual attention and access to Adam's famed technical knowledge as the studio accommodated 15 students at one time. There are many options for you to choose from, including the whole package down to single workshop sessions. We expect this to fill up fast so if you are interested, bookings are confirmed when paid for.
Mysore Classes, Monday to Saturday, 9.00 am – 11.00 am
Within the framework of the Ashtanga sequences, there is a lot of room to suit the practice and make it work for you. And, whilst stressing comfortable, effective, and, most of all, injury-free progress; one can still practice traditionally - keeping to the sequence and its flow.
Adam’s approach is not to shame, stop or tell off; rather to make people feel motivated, confident, and safe in their practices. It’s not about knowing the whole thing perfectly then, so absolutely everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the benefits of practising at one’s own speed and level.
Saturday, July 6th, 11.30 am – 13.00 – Essential Fundamentals
Saturday, July 13th, 11.30 am – 13.00 – Hip Openers
Saturday, July 20th, 11.30 am – 13.00 - Arm Balances & Inversions

About the Studio
Ashtanga Yoga Golfe Juan is the South of France home of Linda Munro and Gérald Disse, founders of Ashtanga Yoga Paris in 2004 and are pioneers of the practice in the city. AYG is borne of their dream to create a small, familial yoga school in the sunny south of France. Located on the ground floor of their home, overlooking a lush garden of tropical plants, the studio imbibes a homey, peaceful ambience.
Golfe Juan is the seaside part of the commune of Vallauris, located on the Côte d’Azur, between Antibes and Cannes. It’s less touristy than those two towns, with calm beaches, coastal restaurants and a harbor. Golfe Juan is the seaside part of the commune of Vallauris, which is where Picasso lived from 1948 until 1955.
