About Canggu

Canggu is a village on the south coast of the Indonesian island of Bali. It's surrounded by terraced rice paddies and known for beaches like Canggu and Echo, with strong surf. The village boasts a relaxed, bohemian atmosphere, an ideal haven for those seeking respite from the hustle and bustle of Bali’s more tourist-centric areas. North of Canggu, Tanah Lot is a Hindu temple that sits just offshore on a rocky outcrop.  Canggu’s strategic location makes it an ideal base for taking day trips to nearby areas. One of Bali’s most stunning natural attractions, the rice field terraces, can be found in the countryside. 

Accommodation options are wide-ranging, with everything from simple beach hostels to exquisite luxury resorts, fit for a whole host of tastes and budgets.

Class Descriptions

Mysore Class

Mysore class provides students with a concentrated learning experience that will help them develop practical and technical skills in the discipline of Ashtanga yoga as well as be immersed in the inspirational magic and poetic soul of the practice. Each student will receive valuable one to one guidance from David on developing their personal practice. 

Breath, Bandhas, and Pranayama

Participants will gain knowledge of pranayama, the fourth yogic limb, and lay a foundation for establishing a personal breathing practice. The classes will include developing ujjayi (victorious breath), viloma (interrupting the breath), khumbhaka (retaining the breath), and learning the traditional Ashtanga pranayama sequence as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. These sessions will also help the student breathe with more skill and awareness in their asana practice. 

Asana Theory

These are clinic style led classes that investigate specific aspects of the practice in varying levels of detail. These important classes feature more verbal instruction; they give students a chance to slow things down, see new ways to orient during practice, get explanations of elusive and often unspoken aspects of the practice, and understand the Ashtanga method in greater, more subtle detail.

Yoga Sutras Study

These classes will focus on studying the meaning of the yoga sutras and lead to a lecture that aims to clarify the meaning of the texts and their context within daily practice. David will also draw from other sacred texts like the Bhagavad Gita, bhakti poetry, and Hatha Yoga Pradipika.
