The course is geared towards those that have a firm knowledge of the primary series, at least to Navasana, and to those already practising intermediate or advanced who would like to work on these series. Beginners will be primarily taught by one of Nancy's assistants and are welcome to come for the entire two weeks. People who have injuries are encouraged to come to explore ways of healing and relieving pain.
Ashtanga with Intention, with the first Western woman to learn directly from Pattabhi Jois, combined with the foundations for a regular meditation practice.  Nancy travels to Europe doing workshops in various locations and around the US with the intention of sharing her experience of yoga with others. Her studies have led her to the dharma teachings of the Dalai Lama and the expression of love and compassion for all beings. After more than 30 years of Ashtanga practise, Nancy is more convinced than ever that this style of yoga as taught to her by Sri K.Pattabhi Jois works best when it is followed strictly to the original form and she continues to teach as he taught her.

Course Description:
