Two-days workshop with Gregor Maehle in Paris Integrating the eight limbs into a cohesive whole
Saturday september 14 2019
10.30am – 1.00pm
Led asana Class
Asana is the bedrock from which all other yogic techniques arise. It forms the base from which success in higher yogic techniques can be integrated. Gregor will use both Led (Technical Talk-Through) and Mysore-style. During the Technical Talk-Through we will analyse the anatomical details of the postures and to break down the various phases of entering and exiting the postures into their constituents. Through inducing precision this format also achieves that students practice the postures safely without encountering demerit.
2.00pm – 4.30pm
The Yoga Sutra is the operating manual of yoga. It is only when we understand the why’s and how’s of yoga that we will practice with confidence and beyond doubt. In this class we will chant selected stanzas in Sanskrit and a detailed commentary based on Gregor’s four decades of practice and study will be given. The commentary will retain the depth of the ancient treatises but will be fun, relatable and applicable to modern urban life.

10.30am – 1.00pm
Pranayama includes some of the most neglected but yet most powerful methods of yoga. Pranayama is the vital link that connects asana to meditation without which the combined benefit of both cannot be harvested. Learn how to use pranayama to harmonize the doshas (humors of the body) and thus attain a state of health and balance as well as how to still the mind, enabling spiritual insight.
2.30pm – 5.00pm
Meditation is the method of bringing your mind into a receptive state? so that you can receive higher knowledge that is already there. Yogic meditation is a collection of scientific methods to bring about such awareness. Kundalini-raising techniques consist of a combination of all other yogic means to raise the life force (prana) to a level where meditation is easy and spiritual insight becomes spontaneous.
