Catherine Annie (UK)
"A WEEKEND OF MINDFUL YOGA"

13. & 14. Jänner 2018

 

"If you are kind to your body, it will respond in an incredible way"
Vanda Scaravelli, Awakening the Spine

Begin the new year by enhancing your yoga!  Join Catherine Annis for a series of mindful yoga workshops based on the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli to:

  • Discover how yoga can help you release tension, change the way you move, and improve your quality of life
  • Find out why there’s so much more to touch than how the teacher adjusts / assists you
  • Play with gravity, and become more grounded and centred
  • Learn about the psoas – the muscle of emotion – and how it’s related to the spine, and the breath, and explore simple techniques to release it


SATURDAY  9:30 - 12:30
Releasing Tension Through Yoga

We are a product of our experiences. The way we move, our thoughts, our reactions … they create patterns which gradually sink into us and become absorbed into our bodies, affecting the way we relate to ourselves, and to others.  Join this workshop to explore how yoga can help.  Sit quietly, move consciously, breathe, and begin to softly open.  Practicing compassionately and with mindful awareness, we can: 

  • Soothe our nervous system, relax our tissues and responses, and find out how to go with the natural flow of the world around us
  • Use simple poses to let go of unnecessary tension and dissolve layers of habitual patterning
  • Restore our whole selves to a state of ease, tranquillity and happiness.   

SATURDAY  14:30 -17:30
The Art of Touch

The sense of touch is crucial for human development.   It is the first form of communication between mother and child, and can be a valuable tool in drawing attention to forgotten or sleepy areas of the body.  

In this workshop, we’ll explore different approaches to touch within our yoga practice and discover:

  • Techniques to improve the quality of our touch and learn how it can improve our sensitivity and awareness of ourselves, as well as others
  • The value of touch in revealing more supple and fluid approaches to movement
  • How the concept of touch moves beyond the physical and into the psychological


SUNDAY  9:30 -12:30
Gravity and Grounding- Yoga inspired by Vanda Scaravelli

In this workshop, we’ll explore gravity and the sensation of grounding, and how these elements combine to release and awaken the spine, and bring a sense of lightness and natural ease into our yoga practice.  

Working with attention, we’ll learn how to work with gravity to gently encourage the body to open, creating space and lift through the body.  Join this workshop to:

  • Understand and explore how gravity affects the mechanics of our movements
  • Learn how to surrender to the pull of the earth and become more grounded, physically and psychologically
  • Use the power of gravity to unwind and awaken our spines, creating new beneficial approaches to yoga and movement

SUNDAY  14:30 - 17:30
Demystifying the Psoas – Muscle of Emotion

The psoas muscles are the deepest muscles in our core.  They are involved in almost every movement we make, from walking and running to sitting, and of course, throughout our yoga practice.   

Whilst they are extraordinarily sensitive and responsive, we often find it difficult to consciously feel them, or even know where they are within our bodies.   When we’re tired, emotional or have just been overdoing it a bit, they may become unbalanced and tense, potentially causing a wide range of symptoms including lower back pain, stress, postural imbalances and contributing to exhaustion and poor digestion.

Join this workshop to understand more about these most emotional of muscles, and:

  • Improve your understanding of the structure and role of the psoas in the body  
  • Learn why you should never stretch your psoas - and why it doesn’t need strengthening
  • Let go of long held tensions which may help relieve lower back pain and improve your psychological well being. 

 

Who is this weekend for? 

These workshops are for anyone who'd like to find out more about this unique, subtle yet demanding approach to yoga, and all levels of experience are welcome.  Beginners will welcome the straightforward approach.  Teachers and serious students will experience a new way to explore your practice.  Also suitable for those working with chronic (but not acute) spinal issues. 

All workshops are suitable for all levels, from beginners through to more experienced practitioners.  


Catherine Annis is well known for her imaginative and practical approach to yoga.  Originally a professional dancer, she discovered yoga as a teenager, and has been practicing for more than 35 years.  Having explored Sivananda, Iyengar, Ashtanga and various forms of Hatha yoga, she eventually gravitated to the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli. 

Catherine’s practice and teaching focuses on deepening physical awareness and alignment to reveal the natural freedom of the body, particularly the spine.  She is an attentive and thoughtful teacher, and highly skilled at adapting poses to accommodate all levels and types of students, so that everyone leaves class feeling that they have made a fresh discovery about their yoga practice.  She is a member of the Triyoga teacher training faculty and teaches weekly classes in London.  She also leads retreats at various locations in India and Europe, and created the first Scaravelli inspired immersion course, which is held annually, and is regularly invited to teach workshops throughout the UK, and internationally.  For more information and to keep in touch with Catherine, visit her website:

FRANK LEE  DÖLLINGER (Berlin)

Ich zeige dir einen Weg in den Movement-Flow. Du wirst Bewegungs-Prinzipien kennen lernen, die dir helfen deine gewohnten Bewegungsmuster zu überwinden und intuitiv neue Bewegungen zu machen. Dadurch trainierst du Muskeln, die du selten bewegst. Du schulst deine Aufmerksamkeit für Impulse aus deinem Körper, lernst sie zu interpretieren und in Bewegung auszudrücken. So kommst du in den Flow. 

über Frank Lee:

Im Jahr 2000 fing ich an Breakdance zu machen. Ich war damals 16 Jahre alt. Die ersten Jahre habe ich mich in den akrobatischen Elementen (sog. Powermoves) geübt. Ich lernte mit Schwung und Drehbewegungen umzugehen.

Dauerhaft hatte mich jedoch das Tanzen am meisten interessiert, weil es mir ein unglaubliches Körpergefühl gab. Ich ging deshalb 2007 nach Berlin, um mich dem Tanz zu widmen. Weil ich es wirklich begreifen wollte, studierte ich Bewegung an sich und suchte dessen Essenz. Der zeitgenössische Tanz und Feldenkrais haben meinen Weg am stärksten beeinflusst. Ich lernte das wahre Bewegung von innen heraus als Instinkt und Intuition zu einem kommt. 

Ich schulte meine Aufmerksamkeit und lernte die Signale aus meinem Körper, selbst in den verstecktesten Winkeln im inneren meines Körper wahrzunehmen. Dieser Weg führte mich ohne das ich es je beabsichtigt hatte zur Essenz der Übungen aus dem Yoga. Meine suche nach Bewegungs-Ästhetik führte mich zur Essenz des Chi Gong und des Kung-Fu.

Heute bin ich in verschiedenen Kontexten tätig. Ich gebe Workshops zum Thema Bewusstsein und Bewegung oder bin als Performer im Bereich Physical Theatre auf der Bühne. 

Preis           early bird € 70,-       (bis 25. 1. 2018)
                      danach € 80,-

Frühlingsgefühle - FLIRTING WITH INVERTING!

10. & 11. März 2018

mit Eva Klein (München)

7SL_1264.JPG

In dieser 2-teiligen Workshopreihe näherst du dich spielerisch verschiedenen Hand - und Armbalance.

Nicht umsonst sind derartige Yogahaltungen für viele von uns oftmals die "Fear-Asanas" - das Herz befindet sich über unserem Verstand, was nicht nur im Alltag eine Herausforderung darstellt.

Dabei lernen wir als Erwachsene viel leichter wenn wir "spielen", wenn wir die Handstand Praxis als Playground sehen um zu experimentieren und uns neu zu erfinden. Gerade Frauen benötigen da auch körperlich eine andere Herangehensweise.

Ein Flirt mit dem "Andersherum-Stehen", die Leichtigkeit der körperlichen Praxis steht hierbei im Vordergrund.

In den aufeinander aufbauenden Modulen werden wir zuerst die Basics, die physischen und vor allem mentalen Voraussetzungen erfahren, die es benötigt, um die Welt andersherum zu betrachten. Anschliessend werden diverse Handstände (sowie deren Ein - und Ausstiege), Armbalancen, sowie Vorbereitungen und Drills für das Üben zu Hause erlernt.

Partnerübungen, sowie Hilfsmittel wie Blöcke und die Wand kommen zum Einsatz. Und natürlich eine ganze Menge Freude und Spaß.

Die Module sind auch einzeln buchbar und eignen sich für alle Levels.

Modul 1:

Basics, Preps & Drills für alle Hand und Armbalancen

Hier geht es vor allem um die Werkzeuge auf dem Weg in die Upside Down Welt. Welche Muskulatur wird benötigt, gekräftigt, gedehnt? Wie kann ich zu Hause üben? Womit beginne ich? Was sind die Schritte auf dem Weg zum freien Handstand?

Auch für alle erfahrenen Yogis empfehlenswert um punktuell zu trainieren, und für alle, die ihre Praxis auf ein neues Level heben wollen.

Theorie: 40% , Asana: 60%, Fun 100%

 

Modul 2:

Handstände, sowie Ein und Ausstiege aller Art!

Hier geht es zur Sache: Verschiedene Handstand Varianten, Ein & Ausstiege, sowie diverse Armbalancen lassen das Herz höher schlagen. Du darfst dich wie auf einer Spielwiese fühlen, ausprobieren und dich von dir selbst Entertainen lassen : )

Dieses Modul baut auf dem ersten auf und führt dich tiefer in die Welt der Umkehrhaltungen.

Theorie: 30% , Asana: 70%, Fun 100%

Preise:
1 Modul: € 65,-
2 Module: € 117,-

Zeiten:
jeweils von 14:00 - 16:30 Uhr

_BEWJulie-Martin-8-135.jpg

Julie Martin wants you to think outside the box, get off your mat, shake up the old dogmas and find the freedom to unfold into the beauty of a yoga practice that emerges from the inside. With over 25 years of experience and an international following of students and teachers alike, Julie’s greatest aim is to inspire. Her particular passion for human movement means continual investigation of new anatomical approaches, working with natural movement, range of motion, integrated stability and letting go of some of the old asana myths in order to move with the body and not against it. The practice is always an inquiry, a somatic exploration of sensation, movement, and stillness.

15 years ago Julie set up Brahmani Yoga in Goa, India after teaching in Brighton, UK for over 8 years. The largest motivation for the yoga centre was to create a community that could join together each winter season and practice without judgment, learn to let everything evolve and be totally inclusive to all yogis. What grew out of that is an international reputation especially in training teachers to challenge the “norms” of the yoga world when they no longer work for us. Julie’s work as a teacher trainer leaves students inspired and empowered.

She encourages people to find their own pace, fluidity, and strength in a structure that is only a "suggestion". No longer asking people to get "into" a pose, but if stillness arises in a moment then space is given to pause, feel and sense.

“Coming from a dance background and starting an asana practice to save my knees (which it did) I was initially so thankful for the practice. But as I moved over into the deeper world of yoga and teaching it (25 years ago) I was soon riddled with injuries. I had to rethink how this method that had initially "saved" my body was now the source of pain and injury and why everyone in the midst of it was so intent on a "right way" to do the practice. So I stepped away from the strict methodology (which lost me students in some cases) and worked on combining information from modern anatomy and fascia research, including some of my dance knowledge, with natural movement and letting people find their own alignment instead of forcing ideas of what anything should look like. For me, it's about allowing students to find a somatic practice that nurtures and heals the body and mind.”

Your yoga practice should invite you into a relationship with your self, your body, your mind, and emotions. This is not Instagram yoga or circus skills class. This is moving through layers, feeling, experiencing and observing the process, moving towards stillness, moving towards self.

MASTERCLASS

Our yoga practice gives opportunity to let go of unwanted patterns, behaviour, stories and limitations allowing us to cultivate a relationship with our inner self.  One that becomes the most important relationship of all.  Using awareness of sensation Julie will guide you to explore natural spirals, waves, pulses, expansion and contraction, integrated movement, breath and pause.  Listening without judgement to what your body has to say, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Julie encourages students to find their own pace, fluidity and strength in a structure that is only a "suggestion". She no longer asks people to get "into" a pose, but if stillness arises then space is given for you to pause, feel and sense. Moving on only when you are ready, moving with the body not against it.

Julie’s style of flow and curiosity, a practice for all those who are tired of showing up to merely make shapes.  Join the Intelligent Rebellion and allow yourself to find a practice that feels authentic to you and your own body. 
 

SACRED DANCE

We are constantly communicating with our bodies. Our gestures, glances, movements are telling stories we may not be aware of. When we cultivate our internal dialogue to find expression in movement, in dance, we have access to our stories. We feel them, see them and express them. Through this process we allow ourselves to re-pattern, let go of limiting ideas and grow in our relationship to ourselves and others. Sacred Dance is a movement exploration without limitations.

Julie will guide you through different awareness exercises.  Moving to access something within yourself in relationship to how you feel at this moment.  As the connection to inner sensing unfolds we present ways we are in relationship to others and to community/unity as a whole.  Conscious movement and dance can unfold many mental and emotional layers and you will find your freedom as you let the dance rise from within.

Julie draws on her work within the conscious dance community mostly from Vinn Arjuna Marti the founder of Soul Motion, along with Michael Molin Skelton also of Soul Motion and Jo Cobbett of 5 Rhythms and Fumbling Towards Ecstasy.  These mentors plus using techniques drawn from movement therapy has given Julie the framework with which she creates Sacred Dance. 

EMBODYING THE ELEMENTS

We’re moving into a new age of yoga practices.  Understanding human movement and how yoga needs to evolve has opened so many doorways to what we call a practice and why we choose to do it. 

But for all the talk of “natural” or “functional” movement we can get into the realm of making everything just easier for the body and that’s not quite where we are headed.  We need more.  The body needs more. Being linked directly to the emotions and the cells we have to ensure that we’re are encompassing an embodied practice not only to tune into sensation, but also so that we can apply and work with what arises. 

Using a short sequence repeated throughout the weekend, we aim to embody the elements: earth, water, fire, air and space.  Earth, solid and rooting.  Water, fluid, moving, shapeshifting.  Fire, burning, striking, lightning.  Air, ease, effortless, breath-filled.  Space, without limits, release of boundaries.   These different qualities reflect our emotional, mental and spiritual states.  Ever changing and in need of feeling through. Through movement, discussion, meditation and writing we will discover what these elements mean to us and how we can embody them, finding the ability to use the sense of these qualities in our daily lives.
