Ashtanga Weekend with Joey Miles – 28th Feb to 1st March
Friday February 28th to Sunday March 1st.
Joey’s approach is to weave in alignment instruction, to allow you to learn more about connections between postures, understand your body-mind better and find a balance between stability and flexibility, dynamism and passivity. We hope these insights will help you to practice in a way which is functional and sustainable for the body, allowing for longevity in practice.
Friday Led Ashtanga Workshop 18:30-20:30
Friday evening will be a led Ashtanga primary series class, enjoy the steady rhythm and using the breath as your anchor. Alignment instruction will be weaved in
Saturday morning Mysore 10:00-12:00
Joey will teach mysore-style Ashtanga classes on Saturday morning. We ask that students have a pretty confident grasp of the first half of the Ashtanga Primary series, in order to be able to practice independently. This is to enable Joey to try and give an equal level of time and input to each student.
Saturday afternoon will be a dynamic alignment-based workshop. The focus will be learning and refining key actions in standing poses. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the mechanics of individual poses and of categories of poses, allowing you to apply these guidelines in a much wider variety of poses than those you practice within this class. As you progress to more challenging poses, this learning will empower you to work more intelligently and effectively.
Sunday morning Mysore 10:00-12:00

We ask that students have a pretty confident grasp of the first half of the Ashtanga Primary series, in order to be able to practice independently. This is to enable Joey to try and give an equal level of time and input to each student.
Sunday afternoon Restorative Workshop 13:00-15:00
Sunday afternoon will be a restorative session. Leaning towards a mood of ease. All physical effort is relinquished, the body is encouraged to rest and passively release tension in a series of supported poses. Subtlety of awareness is possible when we leave aside intense sensations. The mood of the class is introspective and although many of the poses are deceptively gentle, they have the potential to create a profound shift in your inner state.
Grounded and Approachable, Joey’s ‘common sense’ approach to Ashtanga stems from his deep respect for the traditional method of practice, combined with experiential knowledge of alignment and anatomy. Joey brings a fresh pair of eyes to your practice, giving guidance on how to work with the sequence and how to make the sequence work for you. Joey’s pragmatism, humour and caring nature will leave you feeling inspired and deeply connected with your practice.
