Ashtanga Weekend with Dikla Kafka in Kirkland
Oct 1, 2021| $238 – $280
Ashtanga Weekend is a journey into the depth of Ashtanga that includes detailed breakdown of the poses and alignment, fundamentals of locks (bandhas), pranayama (breathing techniques).
This weekend is right for you if:
✓ You always wanted to learn a bit ore about Ashtanga
✓ You hear words “bandhas” and “pranayama” but actually were never taught what is this and how to practice them internally
✓ You are looking for highly effective drills to build your core as a step towards arm balances, inversions and jump through transitions
✓ You have unanswered questions about the poses/vinyasas and are looking for a trusted resource to dive deeper into the details
✓ You are working up to one of the gatekeeper postures of Primary Series and seeking expert guidance and teaching to help you break through.
Or maybe you are considering a Yoga Teacher Training and want to have a short journey with a teacher prior signing up for a training?
Transformation in your practice starts here!
Schedule: Oct. 1st – Oct. 3rd, 2021 @5:45pm – 6pm
About the instructor: Dikla Kafka
I started practicing yoga in 2003 after many years of practicing martial arts. I wanted to find something softer but still challenging that would support my new lifestyle and career. I stepped into my first yoga class and fell in love immediately! Over the years I practiced many styles of yoga, including Ashtanga, Iyengar and Sivananda.
My first TT was Ashtanga, back in Tel Aviv, Israel, right after my first pregnancy. I practiced the full primary series during my second pregnancy. Here in the US I have completed 200h Hatha yoga TT with HYI, 200h Vinyasa TT with Les Leventhal – right here at Bala Yoga! – 95h TT certification in Yin with Ali Valdez, and 500h advanced studies with Sattva Yoga.
I teach Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha yoga, as well as Yoga Philosophy, and the thing I love the most is challenging students and reminding them how strong they are. I encourage students to come to the mat every day! Even if its just for a few minutes, for 3 of their favorite poses, or a couple of sun salutes. I strongly believe that daily practice is important and want to encourage everyone to explore the discipline of self-practice.
