THIS IS DAY 1 (out of 3 days workshop)

In this first module in the “Yoga beyond Asana” student-training series we’ll dive into the roots of the yoga tree. 

Each day starts with a Yoga asana practice.

We’ll look into the oldest spiritual texts in the world, the Vedas and Upanishads and gather elements of ancient yoga to inform our modern practices. We’ll delve into spiritual poetry and connect to spiritual principles through the art of chanting and reciting mantras. 

The anatomy sessions will introduce us to our own anatomy and help us discover the skeleton that lives inside us. We will use an intro to biomechanics to support alignment of our joints and structure in our yoga practice. We will also learn the CAR system (controled Articular Rotations) as a great warm up and therapeutic tool. It will be fun, nourishing and hopefully a bit enlightening..

   15h-17h Essence of the Vedas

   17h-18h Q&A

Yoga philosophy

In the philosophy sessions of this module we’ll explore the foundation of yoga spirituality, namely the Vedas & Upanishads. Where we’ll use the inspiration of the ancient sages to help us live our own life with more inspiration and reverence. Also we’ll use the material of the Upanishads as a springboard to reflect and inquire into ourselves through powerful questions and cultivate a yoga for the mind to drop into the vibrant fabric of the living. 

Yoga anatomy

In the anatomy sessions of this module we’ll use the parallel of the Vedas as the foundation of yoga to explore the foundation of our body, namely the skeletal system. Without getting too technical but remaining 100% practical we’ll deepen our understanding of how our joints articulate through alignment, biomechanics and physiology in order to support our yoga practice and unwind blockages and limitations. 

Yoga asana practice

As the traditional form of practice of Ashtanga yoga, mysore is a space to connect with oneself, cultivate meditative awareness and integrate some of the awareness cultivated in the anatomy

sessions by applying some of the tools on a per needed basis..
