IYENGAR YOGA INTENSIVE – Effortless effort in the Yoga Asana

About This Event

Effortless Effort in Yoga Asana In this 3-day workshop, we will explore the family of asanas as taught by B.K.S. Iyengar. Through the use of props, proper sequence and timing, and with the intention to respect the body and to minimize physical injuries, we will open to discover the place where we can practice with “effortless effort”. There will be unstructured personal time each day for individual questions to address injuries or special conditions, create personal sequences and turn inward for self-practice. The schedule includes 3 classes per day: Asana, Pranayama and restorative yoga. Iyengar Yoga is characterized by great attention to detail and a precise focus on body alignment. Iyengar pioneered the use of “props” such as cushions, benches, blocks, straps which function as aids that allow the practitioner to experience asanas on a deeper level. The uniqueness of Iyengar yoga comes from: Technique: The precision of the body’s alignment. Sequence: Following the specific sequence is important in achieving the desired result. Timing: Defining the time spent in each pose or pranayama for the most benefit. Yoga is for everyone to experience in a way which is safe, accessible and rewarding.

      Not enough food

    I read on the page of the Pachamama community that they are welcoming people who work for them and in exchange they get food and a place to put their tent for free. Imagine you make your way through the forest into this community and start to trust. As a worker, you work for some hours. That's nice. And in the evening you are surrounded by all the others. You all share silence for some time. But as soon as the bell rings people jump up. To be explicit: the workers jump up in a very rushed way. To hurry up for being the first in the line. Workers get soup and rice. That's fine. Imagine you are taking your time after the sound of the bell. And imagine there is no soup left because you were not fast enough to reach the dining room. The reason why I visited this place is because I trust that I am entering a place where people truly care and even more live it. I let my review in a short version. I wrote for you who is not interested in falling into a trap. I wrote for the people who are truly connected to themselves. The simple fact that they do not have enough food for the workers shows me that the Pachamama community is not ready for me. I left after 4 days and proofed by this action that I truly care. And you proof that you truly care by not going to this place. But if you go, you would need to change the place in a radical way by provoking and speaking out loud. Like a warrior. It is so clear.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
