Ashtanga Yoga Intensive with David Robson and Jelena Vesić



start: Oct 14, 2019
end: Oct 25, 2019


Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is much more than just fancy asana. It’s not all handstands, and legs behind the head.

It’s about connecting with your breath – learning to still the mind even in the most challenging of postures. After all, as David Robson says, ‘asana without breath is just shitty gymnastics.’

Join David Robson, assisted by Jelena Vesić for a 2 week intensive in Zagreb, Croatia and explore the richness of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition.

This Intensive is designed for people who would like to deepen their knowledge on the many different aspects of Ashtanga Yoga, going beyond asana and alignment. With daily morning self-practice safely guided by David and Jelena, philosophy, theory and technique workshops for Primary and Intermediate Series, and much more, each student regardless of their experience will be able to advance their practice.

Everyone with a genuine interest in Ashtanga Yoga is welcome to join the Intensive.

"So this morning during Mysore class I did my first stand up from drop-back, and then I did it again and again.. This is barely a physical achievement for me, it's rather a mental one. For the first time in my life I felt the energy and the need to stand up for myself, to believe in me despite the thoughts, which tried to bring me down. It wasn't a fight with the gravity, it was to make peace with myself, to ask forgiveness for every time I put myself down, for every time I buried my feelings just to please others. Thank you Jelena and David,my teachers, for believing in me and giving me the trust!"

"For the third year in a row these two beautiful souls, amazing teachers and ashtangis, Jelena and David, visited Zagreb. Today our two week Ashtanga intensive is over. I learned a lot, sweated a lot, laughed a lot, and enjoyed immensely. Thank you Jelena and David" IJ
