DAMIEN de BASTIER – Ashtanga Yoga & Workshops
We are so happy to receive Damien 10 years later once again 🥰 Damien taught at the first Casa Vinyasa in 2009 for about a month and the students absolutely loved him 🙂
These years Damien founded and has been teaching mostly at his amazing school – https://www.samadibali.com/ 👌
Damien de Bastier has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 28
years. It was ‘love at first stretch’ when he was introduced to the ashtanga practice as it combined his passions for sports, meditation and self-inquiry. As
an authorized teacher his intention is to share the gifts of the ashtanga
method as they have been transmitted to him by his teachers, Pattabhi Jois
and Sharath Jois. As a guide, Damien draws from backgrounds in
psychology, bodywork and yoga therapy to create a safe and nurturing
environment in order to inspire people to dive in the ocean of yoga and
embark on the transformational journey toward themselves. When not
teaching at his school in Bali, Damien travels around the world and shares his
passion for yoga with insight, humor and compassion.
About… ASHTANGA YOGA…
Ashtanga yoga originally from Mysore, India is based on the precise weaving of body movements and breath movements into a deepening flow of yoga poses. Akin to a cooking process the heat generated, the struggle endured and the peace revealed combine together to reveal the flavor of your Being.
In these workshops we will peal open the various layers of the ashtanga
method and deepen our understanding of anatomy and yoga philosophy.
