Secret Paths – Pranayama, Bandha & Kriya Essentials
45€

“In diesem Workshop zeige ich Dir einige dieser essentiellen Übungen, die das Leben in meinem Körper immens positiv beeinflusst haben und von denen ich überzeugt bin, dass sie das für jeden tun können.”

Bandhas und Kriyas helfen unseren Organen einwandfrei zu arbeiten. Sie erschaffen Gesundheit von Innen. Schauen wir von einem evolutionären Blickwinkel, dann sollten wir berücksichtigen, dass unser Körper wesentlich älter ist als die Expansion unseres Gehirns. Die Organe sind dazu da unser Gehirn am Leben zu halten und nicht umgekehrt. Aufgrund unseres modernen Lebensstiles, industriell verarbeiteter Lebensmittel, fehlendem Bewusstsein für das was in unserem Bauch eigentlich passiert und all den verrückten Konzepten, mit denen der Verstand unseren Körper knechtet, haben wir gänzlich die Verbindung zur Lebenskraft in unserer Mitte verloren.

Bandhas und einige Kriyas sehen vielleicht auf den ersten Blick etwas merkwürdig aus, weil wir so etwas noch nie gesehen oder ausprobiert haben. Tatsächlich sind sie einfach zu lernende Übungen, die uns helfen ein wesentlich intensiveres Körperbewusstsein zu schaffen.

Indem wir unserem Körper helfen lebendiger und gesünder zu werden, wird unser “kranker” Geist leichter folgen.

Diese Übungen sind die Grundlage für eine tiefe körperliche Yoga Praxis und essentiell auch für die Meditation. Sie sind die unsichtbaren Flügel, die dem Yogi seine Leichtigkeit verleihen, scheinbar schwerelos durch die intensivsten Asana Sequenzen zu “fliegen”. Ohne sie, bleibt die Praxis der Asanas nur oberflächlich.

Wer diese Übungen integriert, wird einen enormen positiven Effekt auf allen Ebenen des eigenen Wesens erleben.

Flight Club – In 7 Schritten in den Handstand
55€

In diesem Workshop zeige ich Dir mein „7 Schritte zum Handstand Programm“.

Diese detaillierte Methode ist in über 10 Jahren gereift. Aus ihr ist das Flight Club Buch – Schritt für Schritt in den Handstand – entstanden.

Keine Frage, es ist eine große Herausforderung den König der Armbalancen zu meistern. Dieser Workshop zeigt Dir einen gangbaren Weg und gibt Dir viele Übungen, Tipps & Tricks, um sich dieser Challenge mit Selbstbewusstsein und vor allem Spaß dabei zu stellen.

Jeder der sieben Schritte kann in die regelmäßige Yoga Praxis integriert werden. Also gibt es ab sofort keine Entschuldigungen mehr, warum Du nicht schon bald auf den Händen in und aus dem Studio laufen solltest… : )

Die Praxis von Handständen bringt uns augenblicklich ins Hier und Jetzt. Sie verbindet uns mit unserer kindlichen, spielerischen Natur und gleichzeitig mit einer unserer tiefsten Urängste – die Kontrolle zu verlieren und ohne Halt ins Leere zu fallen.

Die Essenz aus beidem ist Selbstbewusstsein. Den Handstand lernen, heißt Fallen lernen und dabei immer wieder auf den Füßen zu landen. Diese Erfahrung kann man in jeder Lebenssituation gut gebrauchen. Außerdem wird der Körper gestärkt, die Wahrnehmung geschärft und die Konzentrationsfähigkeit des Geistes enorm gesteigert. Man fühlt sich wach, agil und voller Energie. Handstände machen Glücklich!

Voraussetzungen:
Der Workshop ist für Alle geeignet, die sich gerne einer körperlichen Herausforderung stellen, auch wenn es bisher mit Handständen und Armbalancen noch nicht so gut klappt. Die vermittelten Übungen und Techniken machen Spaß und sind universell für die Yoga Praxis anwendbar.

beide Module zusammen 95 €

Ashtanga Yoga Workshop with Tomas Zorzo from Oviedo, Spain

Philosophy, Ethics and Practice  |  Understanding Yourself  • The Path of Svadhyay  (Self Study)

November 15th – November 17th, 2019

Yoga is based on a healthy philosophy and a profound psychology. The essential core of yoga is not only the alignment of body and mind, but also the development of soul and spirit. The whole spectrum of yoga consists of two aspects: theory and practice. Both are equally important in achieving the ultimate goal of yoga – to reach the tranquility of mind (Nirodha).to reach. However, philosophy without practical implementation is only theory.

It adds a deeper meaning to yoga and helps to put what you have learned into practice. The path of yoga begins when you put an intention into practice. And this intention should be nothing but Nirodha (resting in your Inner Self)

To reach the state of Nirodha is not easy to get because there is a lower nature, expressed in the Kleshas (avidya | asmita | raga | dvesha | abhinivesha… (Ignorance, identification with the I, desire, hate, fear of death).

For this weekend our focus will be Svadhyaya, to understand how the Kleshas are manifesting in our lifes.

We will do exercises and also we will use a variety of exercises for our self-awareness to explore our habits, feelings and thought processes, with the aim of achieving a greater awareness of our inner “movements”.

Asanas, pranayama, svadhyaya (self-study) and meditation are the essential tools within this process of our personal development.

We will study to see how the Kleshas are deeply manifested in ourselves, in thinking, behaving, acting and reacting.

Always focussing in the special part of understanding the real purpose of the yoga practise. Which should be the recognition and transformation of our lower nature for approaching Nirodha (Inner peace).

This workshop is also an opportunity to practice Ashtanga in a traditional way (depending on who is attending Class on Sunday maybe Mysore Style, which means an individual practice without guidance, but guded through individual corrections by your teacher. This way of teaching and practicing allows all people, regardless of their physical conditions and pace, to practice side by side) How e will practice in the morning classes is depending on the student, maybe saturday Led, Sunday half Led, half Mysore)

Rückblick: July 17th – July 21st, 2019 in Cologne
Ashtanga Yoga Workshop with Rolf + Marci Naujokat from Goa

I am overwhelmed and very grateful that Marci and Rolf, my teachers and dear friend from Goa, are coming to Cologne. Rolf was here in 2006/2007/2008, now he comes back after all these years, together with Marci!

Rolf Naujokat began his yoga studies in North India in 1975 with Japa Kriya, traditional Hatha Yoga and Pranayama. He was certified to teach the Ashtanga Yoga system by his Guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in 1996 and practiced the fourth series. Beginning in 1990, he studied in Mysore for 3-6 months of every year for 16 years.

Marci Naujokat began practicing Yoga in 1990, studying intensively under Rolf Naujokat, Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller and Senior Iyengar teacher, Gabriella Giubilaro. Her teaching integrates the Ashtanga system with specific opening techniques to gently and effectively release habitual patterns and tension held in the mind-body system. This process is rooted in non-aggression and compassion towards Self and allows insight into deeper and often inaccessible areas of the body. For those with injuries or physical limitations, she adapts the practice to their individual needs.

It is a very rare occasion. There is the possibility to book two single parts, or complete. If there is space in the afternoon, Marcis classes can also be booked seperately. They are open for everyone, for the Mysore classes you should know Ashtanga primary Series to Navasana min.
