Ashtanga Intensive in Bali, February 2025

Ashtanga Intensive in Bali, Ubud

Sunday February 16th to Sunday March 2nd, 2025

Our aim in this Ashtanga intensive in Bali is to focus on the pursuit of the yoga path on a practical level. We will explore our physical practice and the wish to make progress and what that has to do with yoga. Essentially, how is this related to yoga on a deeper level?

The East understands that the mind is affected by the body. Yoga practices are a way to tap into that level of energy and will explore this and how to understand it yourself experientially. If our practices are to be considered a life-long endeavor, we need to know how to do them safely, in a structural sense that they can be comfortably continued for the whole of our lives.

You may have experienced of the depth of yoga’s capacity to transform already. In this time together, we aim to explore in more depth how and why the physical practices work like they do, to suit their general principles to the unique demands of each individual.

Adam has taught Ashtanga yoga for nearly 25 years and completed the Advanced A series in Mysore with Sharathji in 2012. He teaches in a practical, grounded and inclusive way, through his experience and with a sense of humour. All will made to feel welcome.

The yoga and cultural centre of Bali, Ubud is steeped in atmosphere. It is in the centre of the island and situated in a tropical rain forest jungle, located amongst rice paddies and steep ravines.

The great thing about our location in Ubud is that you can walk around the streets, rice fields, and take in the art, cafes and culture. We honestly feel that this is an ideal setting for Adam's first Ashtanga intensive in Bali.
