Vinyasa Krama with Thanasis Saramourtsis
Vinyasa Krama Yoga is a traditional method of practicing yoga asanas in a flowing sequence connected harmoniously by the breath. Krama means “a step” or “in stages”. Vinyasa Krama was originally taught by Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1888-1989), the most influential figure in the last 100 years in the field of yoga, through two complementary approaches: The first approach (vinyasa chikitsa) was therapeutic and adapted to individual abilities, while the second one (vinyasa shakti), was more dynamic, consisting of asanas taught in a steady rhythm, precisely and consistently. Vinyasa Krama is the method from which many modern Yoga systems evolved.
The classes are open to all those with a regular yoga practice.
From Wednesday, July 12 and every Wednesday // 20:00 – 21:30
A few words about Thanasis:
Thanasis began his journey into Yoga in 2006, after having practiced martial arts for a long time (Kung-Fu, Qi-Qong, Judo). A special stage in this journey has been the acquaintance and systematic involvement with the system of Aṣṭāṅga Vinyasa Yoga, under the guidance of exceptional teachers.
He has attended a number of seminars on many types of modern Yoga, which have infused in him the belief that Yoga is one and –should be– is simple.
He has been authorized to teach the first series of Aṣṭāṅga Vinyasa by Manju Jois, Aṣṭāṅga Yoga Guru of Mysore, and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’s eldest son.
Another area of exploration is the Vinyasa Krama Yoga method, which he is currently practicing and studying.
The body, the spirit, the multiplicity, the unity, the simplicity, the liberation, … are illuminated by the practice of Yoga day by day.
