The Yoga of Living-Tolls for Transformation and Well -being- Sunday May 24th 5.30-7 pm
Yoga is more than a physical practice on the mat, it is holistic system which encompasses all
aspects of our being, from the gross (physical body) to the subtle (energetic,
mental, emotional and even spiritual levels).
Yoga practice and philosophy provide us with tools that work at all these levels, promoting
health and vitality as well as cultivating physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Ultimately, Yoga gives us the tools to go get on with life in the most graceful and efficient
In this workshop we’ll explore
Asana – to cultivate, suppleness, inner/outer strength and balance.
Pranayama (beathwork) – one of the most powerful and transformative tools that
Yoga offers to manage our Prana (life force) purifying body, mind and boosting
immune system and vitality.
Mudra- channelizes the body and mental energies.
Chanting- the vibration of the mantra helps clearing out the mind, improve focus and
is great to release mental tensions.
Meditation- The meditation will harvest the fruits of the above practices.
Philosophy- The Yoga Sutras of Patanjeli, one of the core Yoga texts and first
psychology treatise, teaches us how to know the workings of the mind and refine our
focus and perception. Ultimately we aim to cultivate Viveka (discerning power) to
eradicate Avidya (misperception) which prevents us from seeing our true pure self.
The content of this workshop will draw mainly from the teachings of Krishnamacharya and
Desikachar founders of Vinyasa / Viniyoga.
Surya & Chandra- Cultivate the Solar and Lunar qualities in your Yoga practice- Saturday June 6th – 5.30-7 pm
The philosophy of tantric Hatha Yoga (the Sun and the Moon), had permeated all the styles of modern Yoga. According to this philosophy, Surya (Solar energy) is warm dynamic, revitalizing, invigorating and extroverted. In the practice this translates into dynamic Vinyasa with challenging and fun transitions, strong asanas and energizing pranayama to generate heat.
Chandra on the other hand (Lunar energy), represents the cooing, restorative, calming, regenerating and meditative aspects of the practice. Yin, Restorative, gentle pranayama and mediation are the Lunar practices. We can say that Surya and Chandra are the Yin and the Yang of the Tantric Yoga tradition and it’s important to cultivate balance between these two qualities.
This is going to be a fun workshop in which we’ll explore and embody both qualities: strong and dynamic and gentle and cooling as well as he philosophy behind.
Expect Solar Prana Vinyasa, Lunar Trantric Yin, pranayama(breathwork) and meditation.
