We are happy to welcome Petri Räisänen back to MYC in May 2016 for a 4-day Mysore workshop. Petri is an internationally known and respected Ashtanga yoga teacher, co-owner and director of Ashtanga Yoga Helsinki and author of two Ashtanga yoga books. His Mysore teaching gives you an opportunity to experience the wholeness of the practice, and his teachings aims to lead to an experience of deep concentration (pratyahara) and meditation (dhyana). This workshop is suitable for all levels of students with an established Mysore style Ashtanga yoga practice.
These in-depth workshops about technique and philosophy of Primary and Intermediate series with Petri Räisänen on Saturday May 7 and Sunday May 8 will follow Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’s Ashtanga Yoga vinyasa, alignment, counting and adjustment method. This will deepen the understanding of the series and give a clear view about the system of Ashtanga Yoga. With clarity in the vinyasa and Asana alignment the Yoga practice will reach it’s original essence. Please note: In order to attend you don’t need to practice the full primary/intermediate series!
We’ll round off Saturday and Sunday after Petri’s classes with chanting and meditation. Chanting is a centuries-old technique that connects humans with themselves and brings the mind to a state of calmness. When that happens, we find it easier to experience also the state of meditation. Wambui started chanting in Mysore with Dr. MA Jayashree and Professor Narasimhan in 2009. She has had the pleasure of studying various texts such as the Yoga Sutras with Vijaya Manja, Sri Mad Bhagavatam with Måns Broo and mantra japa with Eddie Stern. These sessions are included in the workshop with Petri.
This workshop with Lill Palmblad will focus on the connection between breath, body and mind. Through the long-held, deep stretches of Yin yoga we will explore how a focus on breath can help you to relax and stay present at the same time – in your yoga practice and in life! We will use simple techniques for breathing, and asanas suitable for beginners as well as experienced yogis. Yin Yoga focuses on long, passive stretches which go beyond the muscles into the deeper connective tissues, and allow time for exploration of feelings, thoughts and sensations arising during practice – enabling you, perhaps, to let go of physical and mental tension.
We are pleased to welcome master teacher Sudhir Tiwari for the first time to Copenhagen! This is a unique opportunity to study with one of the most authentic voices in the world of modern yoga. Both a yogi and ayurvedic expert, Sudhir shares his understanding of the science and philosophy of pranayama and ayurveda in a clear and accessible way. The workshop will be a practical journey to experience the benefits of the traditional breathing techniques in our health and thinking. We will examine pranayama, its purpose, technique and benefits in-depth according both to classical yoga philosophy as well as how it is supported by modern science.
