ASHTANGA WEEKEND WORKSHOP with PETRI RAISANEN

*** ALL LEVELS WELCOME ***

Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

February 6-10, 2025

To register: info@ashtangayoga.lu

Petri is an internationally well-known and respected Ashtanga Yoga teacher. He is a devoted student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and was authorized to teach Ashtanga Yoga in 2001.  Petri’s teachings embody a therapeutic and healing philosophy, drawing deeply from his background as a traditional Finnish healer and naturopath. His adjustment techniques reflect this rich heritage, ensuring a gentle yet effective practice. Known for his enjoyable, gentle, and inclusive teaching style, Petri creates an environment where learning and healing go hand in hand. All levels of Mysore practitioners are welcome in his workshop. His teachings are extremely beneficial for all kinds of bodies.

Astanga yoga workshops are suitable for both beginners and advanced students. They follow Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras’ well-known eight limbs of yoga philosophy (astau – eight; anga – branch, leg, limb), taught in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya and K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India.

Petri’s aim is to teach his students in a peaceful, individualised way while keeping to the powerful, disciplined and traditional practice of physical and mental development. The student achieves a sense of wholeness through the practice of poses (asanas), energy-enhancing breathing (uijayi- pranayama), and gazing points (drishti) and energy locks/muscle control (bandhas), which leads to deep concentration (pratyahara) and meditation (dhyana).
