"When you move from the centre you create beauty and harmony. Sacred geometry is a way to express that love, to release that beauty and express it in every situation, in your yoga practice, in what you see, in what you feel, then that beauty can be shared and harmony is at hand." J.C.
For already sixth time we are honoured to host in our shala this charismatic, entire-life-dedicated yogi who has been traditionally trained in monasteries since his youth, spending his whole life as a yogi scholar. His deep knowledge of yoga and his passionate way of teaching make each of his workshops an amazing and unforgettable experience!
The main theme of this immersion workshop will be Asana as a gesture, the place where Yoga naturally happens. Usually we want to come out of the Asana to soon, faster than the necessary time needed to enter the “yoga zone”. In this workshop we will deepen the Sthira Sukham concept, wrongly attributed to confort or easiness where it should be translated as pleasantness that rises from the discipline of prolonged staying, peeling the layers of uncomfortable opening, deepening and allowing the true inner happiness to come to the surface: the Ananda Sukha - Happiness of the Soul, finally reaching Sthiti - stillness, the serenity of the Soul that comes from the practice.
In truth, there cannot be a true “stay” or immobility in a posture because all asana is controlled by the breath and a correct breathing implies movement of the body, fluids are constantly adjusting inside organs, 70% of the body is water. Permanency without a previous movement does not exist. Even postures maintained during a specific time imply the movement caused by breathing. This state is a dynamic immobility more than absence of movement.
We will discuss:
Explore the latest findings on sport technology applied to asana, the actions that sustain life inside the practice and help you to fully express it with finesse, digesting the information as a result of the slower pace, only by means of that wisdom, the true sensitivity for manual adjustments rises, exploring this way receptiveness.
We will cover:
Gain insight in yoga asana practice and teaching. Learn basic and advance sequencing, specific choreography to apply in each of the main groups of Asana. We recommend this immersion to all practitioners regardless of the style they are practicing, but it is especially designed for the teachers, as there will be time to explore the sequences, practicing, experiencing and understanding them.
We will be working with:
Targeting by session and day focus mainly on a given group, introducing modifications and the effective use of props like rope, blankets, chair, belt, and bricks.
