The Power of Yoga | Exploring Asana & Pranayama & Their Energetic potentials

09-11 Nov 2018
Venue | Sydney, Australia

Throughout the world, numerous practitioners of Yoga are beginning to venture into the non-physical dimensions of Yoga. People now realize that the tools of Yoga are far more profound than superficial gross movements and postures. When Äsana is looked at as merely physical practices and Pranayama as simply breath regulation exercises, Yoga doesn’t seem to offer all the answers to the intelligent modern seeker. Such serious seekers are now turning to the Viniyoga® tradition of Äcärya T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar for deeper insights into Yogic practices.

The Seven Cakra-s | Exploring The Energy Centres of Yoga

27 – 29 Nov 2018

Venue | Kuala Lumpur

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 Näòi-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.

MUDRA-S & BANDHA-S | Las Herramientas Sutiles Del Yoga.

Fri, Apr 27, 2018 2:00 PM Sun, Apr 29, 2018 3:00 PM
Venue | Barcelona, Spain

El potencial humano es ilimitado y está oculto en las profundidades de nuestro ser, no solamente en nuestra psique, sino también en las capas de patrones conscientes e inconscientes. Desbloquear este potencial para que pueda manifestarse en toda su plenitud en nuestras vidas es una clave importante en el camino de crecimiento personal y espiritual. Es un proceso que requiere por un lado un esfuerzo constante y, por otro, la práctica de herramientas poderosas, siempre bajo una supervisión cuidadosa. Los mudra-s y bandha-s son instrumentos vitales en el proceso de evolución personal. Mudra-s son herramientas complejas del Yoga que emplean nuestro fuego interno con el fin de ayudar a nutrir las semillas inherentes de nuestras capacidades.

Estas herramientas fueron ampliamente comentadas en textos clásicos como el Hathayoga Pradipika, Siva Samhita y en textos clásicos más modernos como Yoga Makaranda de T Krishnamacharya. Si las practicamos correctamente, en combinación con técnicas respiratorias y visualizaciones específicas, los mudra-s y los bandha-s pueden tocar diferentes capas del ser humano y ayudarnos en nuestro camino hacia una transformación positiva. Gracias al gran poder que son capaces de despertar, los yogi-s les tenían un profundo respeto y se aprendían y practicaban bajo la supervisión cuidadosa de un maestro competente. También comprendieron los requisitos previos necesarios de estas herramientas y los tenían en cuenta, tanto en la propia práctica, como a la hora de enseñárselas a sus alumnos.

En este seminario estudiaremos detalladamente los Mudra-s más importantes. Estudiaremos los principios necesarios que deben ser entendidos y los contextos concretos en los cuales deben ser practicados. Se explicaran los requisitos previos necesarios antes de abordar la práctica de cada Mudra, los matices técnicos, sus beneficios y sus contraindicaciones.

Se presentará contenido aún desconocido con respecto a estos conceptos tan sutiles del Yoga y a cómo aplicarlos en nuestra práctica personal o en la de nuestros alumnos. Este seminario es recomendable para practicantes serios, profesores y formadores de Yoga que quieran llevar su práctica a un nivel más elevado. Daremos también directrices para poder observar en nosotros mismos los efectos de dichas prácticas y los participantes tendrán oportunidad de profundizar en ellas.
