MEDITATION & SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION

Venue | Satya Moon Yoga, Wichita, Kansas, USA

From time immemorial, the primary quest in human endeavor has been to find freedom, and embrace the depths of spirituality that we are capable of. Whether it be an oriental approach or an occidental method, we are searching for valid indications how to start this profound and important journey.

Many spiritual traditions have evolved in the Indian subcontinent over the last three millennia, which embrace this topic, either as an intellectual enquiry, or as an experiential method of living and practice, or both. While some have disappeared into oblivion, others thrive still in the contemporary time in which we live.

THE SEVEN CAKRAS | EXPLORING THE ENERGY CENTRES

The Yogin-s understood the human body differently from how we perceive it today. Apart from understanding it as a complex physiological structure, the Yogin-s also realized that we are made up of an intricate subtle body. An important part of this subtle entity is the major energy centers known as Cakra-s, which are linked together through subtle channels called the Nadi-s. Each of these Cakra-s is associated with vital physiological and emotional functions. Hence the Yogin-s firmly believed that any imbalance in the Cakra-s could result in physiological and emotional illness and vice versa.

MAHABHUTA | Yoga & The Five Elements

MAHABHUTA | Yoga & The Five Elements

Venue | Melbourne, Australia

All the Vedic schools of philosophy especially Samkhya, Yoga and Ayurveda view the world and the whole universe as an integrated entity made up of five fundamental elements that are called “pañca bhuta-s”. From the Vedic point of view the five elements come alive and manifest in various forms when linked to consciousness through the phenomenon called Prana. Our body from the time of conception onwards is made up of the five elements and is subject to these elemental energetic principles throughout our lives. It is important to understand that the old schools of healing such as Yoga and Ayurveda understood our existence based on prana and the five elements which in turn influence the make up of our constitution (dosa) and the functioning of our energy centres (cakra-s). Therefore not only all of our physique but also our behavior through our actions emotions speech and thoughts as well as our relationship with our environment is closely connected to these principles.

This inspiring and practical semianr will focus on exploring the five elements in the context of Yoga, and how to apply them in yoga practice, for ourselves or our students.

MUDRA-S & BANDHA-S | The subtle tools of Yoga

Venue | Raumati Beach, NZ

The limitless human potential is often deeply hidden within us, not just beneath our psyche, but also within the layers of conscious and unconscious patterning. Unlocking them to fully manifest into our lives is a key aspect of personal growth and spiritual development. This process requires sustained effort and the practice of powerful tools, under careful guidance and supervision. The role of Mudra-s & Bandha-s can serve as a vital instrument in this process of personal evolution. Mudra-s are very intricate tools of Yoga, that harness the fire within us to help nourish the inherent seeds of our capabilities. They are discussed extensively in classical texts such as Hathayogapradipika & Siva Samhita, as well as modern classics such as Yoga Makaranda of T Krishnamacharya.

When appropriately practiced together with a sophisticated system of breath and visualization, Mudra-s & Bandha-s touch different layers of the human system and aid in our positive transformation. Owing to the great power it can harness, the Yogi-s showed great respect to these tools and only learnt and practiced under watchful guidance. They also understood and considered all the pre-requisites these tools required, before practicing themselves or teaching them to others.

Health, Healing & Beyond | Yoga for Personal Evolution

Venue | Ontario, Canada

Contrary to the current trend, Yoga did not evolve merely as a fitness routine, but rather originated to help people maintain health, promote healing and aid them in their personal and spiritual evolution. It was not only a theoretical philosophy or an hourly practice, but rather a path of life through which students decreased suffering, identified their inherent potentials and evolved into the best version of themselves.

What is unique about traditional Yoga is that it views each of us in an individualized and unique manner, as no two humans are the same.

THE SUBTLE ANATOMY OF YOGA

Venue | Barcelona, Spain

The comprehension of our human system by the ancient oriental philosophies differ significantly from the way modern medical science perceives and understands the human body. These unique perceptions form the basis of the fundamental philosophical frameworks that originate from these ancient cultures.The philosophy of Yoga approaches the understanding of the human entity, as an inter-dependant layer of five dimensions, each influencing the other strongly. This apart, the role of the consciousness, the source of life is also strongly represented. Thus the human body is not only understood as a holistic and complex entity, but also addressed in a multifaceted approach, that brings together the manifest layers of human nature, with the un-manifest source of life..

Universal, Yet Personal | The Yoga of T Krishnamacharya

Krishnamacharya’s Yoga tradition emphasizes the concept of self empowerment and personal expression in the journey of wellbeing, healing and transformation.

LA ESENCIA DE LA YOGATERAPIA

LA ESENCIA DE LA YOGATERAPIA

BARCELONA | 21 DE MAYO 2016 de 9h a 16h

ADRID | 22 DE MAYO 2016 de 9h a 16h

En la actualidad el Yoga, una disciplina milenaria que se originó en la antigua India, está ganando cada vez más popularidad y reconocimiento como sistema complementario de salud. El maestro Sri T Krishnamacharya, uno de los grandes Yoguis contemporáneos, fue quien a principios del siglo XX volvió a introducir el Yoga de una manera completamente adaptable y aplicable a nuestra sociedad moderna. A pesar de que el Yoga ofrezca una amplia gama de herramientas con grandes beneficios de sanación y transformación personal, está habitualmente asociado solo con la práctica de posturas físicas. En esta tradición sin embargo se ofrecen muchas más herramientas, que son muy importantes en el proceso de autosanación.

La Yogaterapia es un proceso de empoderamiento, en el cual el alumno, bajo la guía del Yogaterapeuta, implementa una práctica personalizada en constante desarrollo, que no solo enfoca la enfermedad de manera multidimensional, sino que también tiene el objetivo de aliviar progresivamente el malestar, siendo a la vez completamente compatible con la medicina occidental. La ventaja del Yoga es su visión holística y por esa razón las herramientas del Yoga se enfocan en todos los planos del ser humano. Algunas de sus herramientas más poderosas son posturas, respiración consciente, meditación, estilo de vida, visualización, sonidos vocales y recomendaciones alimentarias, resultando en un proceso de sanación integral y altamente eficaz para el que lo practica.

Este seminario de un dia está especialmente diseñado para profesores de Yoga que quieran profundizar en la visión holística y terapéutica del Yoga según la tradición clásica de T Krishnamacharya & TKV Desikachar. Los participantes aprenderàn los principios esenciales de la Yogaterapia, un sistema de sanación que tiene su punto de partida desde la Mente, practicando Asana, Pranayama, Mantra, Mudra, Nyäsa y Meditación. El seminario incluye presentaciones, discusiones abiertas y prácticas experienciales.

UPASANA | MEDITACIÓN YOGUICA CLÁSICA

La meditación de Mindfullness tiene origen en las prácticas Budistas, hoy en día Mindfullness es una palabra muy conocida en la sociedad moderna. Muchos intentan integrarla en sus vidas. En la última década, incluso los practicantes de Yoga, comenzaron a tomar esta visión y proclamaron orgullosos, que eran practicantes de Yoga y Mindfulness. Es comprensible que muchos practicantes de Yoga busquen recursos para meditar por fuera de la tradición de Yoguistica, porque la mayoría de las enseñanzas modernas del Yoga se enfocan únicamente en el aspecto físico a través de la práctica de Asana.

Pero la meditación en sí misma es una parte integral en la práctica del Yoga, la tradición Védica ofrece una rica variedad de herramientas para explorar nuestras dimensiones internas. La particularidad de la meditación Yoguica es que nos enseña como trascender la mente y conectar profundamente con el corazón. A través de este proceso, los practicantes van a descubrir que pueden ir más allá de mindfullness (mente llena) y podrán sentir heartfullness (corazón lleno). Cuando los yoguis integran estas prácticas obtienen sinergias increíbles, descubren un nuevo sentido. La meditación Yoguica no solo ayuda a reducir el stress, promoviendo salud y bienestar, sino que también ofrece un camino enriquecedor hacia la exploración espiritual.

This is the reason why many Yogins developed methods and tools to influence Prana in a positive way. Primary among these methods, is Pranayama, one of the most important tools in the practice and application of Yoga. The power and potentials of these subtle breathing practices are often underestimated or misunderstood in contemporary times whereas the Yogis of the past had great reverence for the work with our “life force”. 

A deep and practical understanding of these techniques are a very important aspect of every Yoga practitioners education and experience, especially for Yoga Teachers and Yoga Therapists.

The Philosophy of Practice | An experiential weekend of Pranayama

The Philosophy of Practice | An experiential weekend of Pranayama

Venue | Buderim, Queensland, Australia

Yoga is both a philosophy that can be practiced, and a practice that has a deep philosophical background. Its philosophical foundations are very strong and they are very practical to our daily living. Yoga is a mirror which, if we look, reveals so much about ourselves, bringing about an inner change which reflects in our daily activities and relationships with life.

The philosophy of Yoga is compiled in a small work called the Yogasutra-s. It is respected so much that many yogis consider that only what is mentioned in Yogasutra-s are Yoga, and what is not mentioned is either not Yoga at all, or not relevant. In this work, Patanjali lays the groundwork for the philosophy of our daily practices. 

To understand this philosophy of practice, this experiential weekend has been planned, where Dr. Kausthub Desikachar, son and successor of the legendary teachers T Krishnamacharya & TKV Desikachar will teach. In this seminar the philosophy of yoga and how it applies to practice will be presented in a systematic manner with a special focus on Pranayama.
