YOGA INTENSIVE 
WITH GOVINDA KAI

FEBRUARY 14 - FEBRUARY 28


The St. Louis Ashtanga Yoga Community (SLAY) is excited to welcome Govinda Kai for an in-depth exploration of the Ashtanga Yoga tradition from February 14-28 at Casa Bagus.

This will be a rare opportunity to deepen your yoga practice in this Ashtanga Yoga immersion at Casa Bagus.  All levels of practice are welcome – afternoon sessions on philosophy require no previous experience with ashtanga yoga.  Space is limited for asana classes so early registration is suggested.  

Govinda Kai brings a unique perspective to his teaching.  He has been fortunate to have studied with some of the most renowned spiritual teachers of this age, including Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Swami Muktananda and Sogyal Rimpoche.  With over thirty years of experience Govinda challenges students not just to improve their physical practice, but, to explore the possibilities of living a truly meaningful life.  

Govinda has been to Mysore, India more than 20 times and practiced almost exclusively with Guruji from 1995 to 2007.  He was certified to teach ashtanga yoga by Guruji, an honor bestowed on fewer than fifty individuals worldwide.

Mysore classes 

Mysore style practice is the traditional method of practicing Ashtanga yoga.  Each student practices at their own pace under the guidance of a teacher. The Mysore system allows students to develop a personal practice that is authentic to their physical individuality while following the Ashtanga tradition.  Students will receive one on one instruction from Govinda to develop his/her individual practice.

  • Weekdays starting Thursday Feb 15 thru Wednesday Feb 28 
  • 5:30 am - 9:30 am


Led Primary Series

The Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, combines a precise system of breathe, movement and focus point to create a dynamic and profoundly meditative style of practice.  The Primary Series, or yoga chikitsa, is designed to promote therapeutic healing of the body.  Govinda studied this method and practiced directly with Pattabhi Jois, or Guruji, for many years.  In his teaching, Govinda conveys his passion and knowledge of the practice to the student.  Govinda will lead the class in the traditional Sanskrit count. 


Led Intermediate Series

The Intermediate series of the Ashtanga Vinyasas Yoga tradition is designed to produce transformation in both the body and the nervous system.  Deep back bending and a deeper exploration of inverted postures are introduced in this series challenging even the most experienced practitioners.  As with all of the Ashtanga series, the students ability to stay with the breath and maintain a steady focus while practicing difficult asana is the key to successful mastery of Intermediate series.
