Insight to Asana — A Series

June 8th & 9th 2024
AIRYOGA, Zurich

Teacher: Stephen Thomas [eng]

Ses­sion 1  — A new way to expe­ri­ence the Stand­ing Forms
Sat­ur­day, June 8th from 14.30 — 17.30

The Stand­ing Asanas form the foun­da­tion for all Asana. It is here that we gath­er build­ing blocks and expe­ri­ence to take the prac­tice fur­ther. Stand­ing Asanas gen­er­ate a cleans­ing heat, release ten­sion in the pelvis and hips and con­nect us to the 3 base base chakras. They also help cor­rect imbal­ances in the asym­met­ri­cal pat­terns in our feet, hips, spine and mind.
By using var­i­ous meth­ods from the Iyen­gar sys­tem, (prop­ping tech­niques, inter­est­ing mod­i­fi­ca­tions to align­ment and ways of find­ing sup­port), stu­dents can have a more clear and deep expe­ri­ence in these forms. These Asanas lift ener­gy and cre­ate immense sta­bil­i­ty in body and mind. If you want to find cor­rect align­ment, find pain-free depth, or dis­cov­er a deep­er expe­ri­ence, this work­shop is for you. Lim­it­ed space 24 only!

Ses­sion 2 — The Joy of Asana
Sun­day, June 9th from 14.30 — 17.30

Asana prac­tice can work on many lev­els to induce and cre­ate feel­ings of joy in the body and mind. There is a play­ful ele­ment to some forms. They can be phys­i­cal­ly chal­leng­ing or dif­fi­cult due to the fear or per­cep­tions of our mind or sim­ply a miss­ing insight that cre­ates an open­ing. There are beau­ti­ful ways in Iyen­gars method, using props and inno­v­a­tive mod­i­fi­ca­tions that allow us to expe­ri­ence a form that is usu­al­ly lim­it­ed or not pos­si­ble for us.  To expe­ri­ence what we didn’t think was pos­si­ble in a safe, man­age­able and intel­li­gent way.
This is a work­shop for stu­dents that want to see how we can use tech­nique, mod­i­fi­ca­tion and intel­li­gent prop­ping to expe­ri­ence some new fron­tiers. Come ready to explore. You will leave with a clear under­stand­ing of how to grow and trans­form this aspect of the Yoga Prac­tice.
