Moving Deeper Into Ashtanga Yoga
Practicing the 8 limbs of Ashtanga Yoga
Mar 29 - Apr 5, 2014
with Romana and Sascha Delberg
About the Retreat
We will integrate all eight limbs of the yogic path in this retreat - combining Asana, Pranayama, Meditation and Chanting, as well as Philosophy.
There will be in-depth exploration of the first series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method.
Emphasis on proper alignment of the postures, the breath and it’s internal patterns and the subtle workings of Drishti, the placement of the gaze. Beyond the first series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system we will explore a variety of yogic practices like Meditation, Pranayama, Chanting and Philosophy. We will spend time in the afternoons exploring the deep relaxation through Yin Yoga practices. Our intention is for you to feel uplifted and clear in your practice as you travel back home ready to integrate yogic wisdom into your day to day life.
The retreat is open to all levels and ages of practitioners from the beginner to the experienced yoga practitioner. The retreat will be bilingual in German and English. We offer a very personalized approach to your individual needs within the Ashtanga Vinyasa System – we appreciate modifications as needed.
About the Teacher
Romana and Sascha Delberg are dedicated yoga practitioners running the Yogawerkstatt in the heart of Vienna. They are both committed to nurturing a community of people that actively learn about the full spectrum of yogic practices, reducing stress and reactivity and transform old habitual patterns for a freer and happier experience of life.
Sascha Delberg has been practicing yoga since 2000 and began meditating while traveling in South-East Asia in 2003. His asana yoga practice is rooted in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition. He focuses on proper alignment, the subtle energetics of breathing and directing awareness in practice. He is teaching from the heart, gently nudging those, that need some additional tapas, and slowing those down into more detail, that are too enthusiastic.
He has studied in depth with Richard Freeman, Paul Dallaghan, Sri O.P. Tiwari. He has had an intense period of study in Mysore with the late Shri K. Pattabhi Jois.
Romana Delberg has been practicing yoga since 1997, but developed a passion and dedication for the various yogic practices in 2003. What initially drew her to yoga, still continues to inspire her to practice and teach Yoga Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, the texts and chants. It is the Yoga’s power to transform slowly our deep habitual patterns into a more mindful and loving view of ourselves and others. Romana provides detailed instructions and takes care of a supportive, non-competitive environment to nurture a meditative body awareness.
Romana has been and still is studying regularly over long periods of time with Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor, Michael Stone, Paul Dallaghan and Sri OP Tiwari.

It was an amazing experience. I came here with lots in my mind. Specially negativity. But since the moment I arrived, I felt completely different, relaxed and calm. Over the days I also start to feel happy again. All the people is great, always with a smile in their face, and with lots of energy. The food is delicious. I really hope I can return again some time.

Paul, I want to thank you again for being the first to introduce me to the practice, in a way that was
incredibly inspiring and motivating. Not everyone has the ability to teach well, and I want to compliment you
on your obvious gift to share your passion with others.
Thanks for the encouragement - it really helps.
