three weeks of mysore classes and workshops
Kranti is one of a few teachers in the world certified by the KPJAYI in Mysore, India to teach the ashtanga method.
He is coming back to SHALA Prague to teach in June 2019 for three weeks. Morning mysore and weekend workshop.
This is a very special opportunity for ashtanga practitioners in the Czech Republic and Prague to have a certified teacher to come as a visiting teacher for a longer period of time and lead a regular mysore program.
Jsme moc rádi, že nás opět navštíví certifikovaný učitel Kranti. KPJAYI certifikovaných učitelů je jen pár desítek na světě a k tomu, aby byl učitel certifikován (Sharathem nebo dříve Gurujim) je potřeba pravidelně jezdit každý rok do Mysore po mnoho let a dokončit třetí sérii, kterou poté certifikovaný učitel může učit. Kranti dlouhodobě žije v Tokiu, Japonsku, kde vede svůj mysore program. Kranti bude v červnu učit TŘI týdny mysore praxe a víkendové workshopy, pro všechny úrovně pokročilosti. Pro studenty Shaly budou ceny ranního mysore stejné jako obvykle.
10 - 28 June 2019
Kranti will be teaching a regular morning mysore program at Shala Prague. His many years of daily ashtanga practice and teaching will help you immensely with your own practice.
The SHALA Prague accommodates max. 18 students in the practice room, therefore places for workshops will be limited. The intimate setting of a smaller group of students will give space to a deeper focus in both mysore and workshops.

Opening the Hips
Many students find lotus (padmasana) and half-lotus postures challenging and it takes them years to comfortably sit in them. Opened hips are crucial to the progress of your yoga practice. In this fun workshop we will look at healthy safe ways of opening and working with the hips. We will look into anatomy and try some hip opening exercises. Hip openers are great for releasing tension within the body, built up emotion and stagnant energy. Opening the hips allows for more range of motion, creating more circulation throughout the body and so much more. Overdeveloped and tight hip flexors can be caused by stress, sitting at a desk day to day or simply driving in the car. This can also contribute to lower back pain. Open to all levels of practitioners and all yoga styles.
Saturday 22/6, 12:00 - 14:00
Price: 1.500 CZK
Working with the spine cleanses the nervous system through a strong combination of backbends, twisting, hip-opening, balancing and strength based asanas (postures). It is said, to purify the subtle energy channels or nadis, allowing prana to flow freely throughout the body, thus working strongly on the nervous system.
Through an exploration of different types of backbends, we will look at various restrictions that may be preventing us from opening the front of the body and finding ease in the postures. We will then work on ways to overcome these restrictions, leading towards freedom and success in postures like urdhva dhanurasana and others.
Backbending requires a lot of mental courage therefore it can be helpful for practitioners to have a better understanding of the risks as well as possibilities one faces when working towards and beyond one’s limits.
Open to anyone curious about backbending. All levels of practitioners and all yoga styles.
Sunday 23/6, 10:00 - 12:00
Price: 1.500 CZK
Adjustment and Assisting workshop
In this Adjustment Workshop, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the purpose and use of hands-on adjustments for yoga postures. Hands-on adjustments and assists can be a very deep tool for teaching yoga. When done well they are an opportunity to retrain patterns or ways of moving. You will understand the big picture of why, when, and how to apply them.
Practical exploration, theory, demonstration and anatomy to cultivate a deeper experience and understanding of foundation poses, hip-openers, forward bends, backbends, twists, arm balances and inversions.
This workshop has theoretical and practical part and includes adjusting Kranti in the morning mysore program. The practical part, where you will be adjusting Kranti, during his busy mysore classes, is a vital part of learning how to assist and teach. Gaining practical experience under the supervision of an experienced teacher is the most important building block for developing your teaching skills.

Born in Italy, his background as a child and teenager was in martial arts, Aikido, Kung Fu and Savate. At 14 years of age, Kranti read his first book on meditation by Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh), which profoundly opened new perceptions in his life. When 21 years old he went to India for the first time and returned back few years later to spend extended periods at the Osho Commune International in Pune, attending different self-transformation workshops and groups as well as bodywork training relating to Ayurveda, yoga, and psychotherapy.
Returning back to Europe in 1996, Kranti decided to go deeper into yoga practice and took his first intensive one-year teacher training in Milan with Carlo Patrian, one of the pioneers in introducing yoga to Italy. Later on living in Berlin for three years, he was introduced to ashtanga vinyasa yoga and he fell in love with the practice.
Kranti spent 4 years in Copenhagen teaching ashtanga, and hatha vinyasa. He taught various yoga enthusiasts including dancers, actors and athletes. One of his regular students included the Princess of Denmark, Mary Donaldson.
In 2002 Kranti met Richard Freeman in France at a Paris workshop. Deeply inspired by Richard’s versatile open approach to yoga and yoga philosophy, Kranti went to Boulder, Colorado in 2003 to attend a one-month intensive teacher training with Richard. The experience took him deeper into understanding the Ashtanga vinyasa system, meditation and philosophy.
In 2004 Kranti completed a course in Yoga Therapy at the Yoga Biomedical Trust of London, England. During the course he worked with students who had heart disease and was moved by the powerful healing aspects of integrating yoga practice into daily life as complimentary alternative therapy. Kranti is also a deep tissue and ayurvedic massage practitioner, a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance (RYT and E-RYT 500 hours), and completed the Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Sarah Powers.
Since 2005, Kranti has routinely studied in Mysore, India, under the guidance of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath Jois. He received Authorization Level 1 to teach Ashtanga Yoga from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 2008, and in 2010, Kranti received Level 2 Authorization. In 2012, he was Certified by the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Institute (KPJAYI) – the only official institute in the world able to certify students to teach the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method by the Jois family.
Kranti completed the advanced A (third series) and is working on advanced B (fourth series) of ashtanga. He lives in Japan, Tokyo where he teaches daily mysore program.
His interest in the body-mind-spirit connection inspires him to continue on a path of daily exploration and self-inquiry. His classes are dynamic and challenging with focus on maintaining softness and ease through body-mind awareness, encouraging students to not forget to keep a smile on their face! Through his teachings, Kranti will help you tapp into your own true unique potential.
