THE 8 STAGES OF YOGA

11th - 15th of September 2018

The system of Yoga has its origin several thousand years back in India. One of the most profound texts in this regard was composed by the sage Patanjali around 500 A.D. In this Yoga Sutra he names eight different parts, which yoga consists of: yama and niyama (living guidelines), asana (body postures), pranayama (breath work), prayahara and dharana (sense withdrawal and concentration), finally leading to dhyana (meditation) and samadhi, the deep understanding of all phenomena in the universe.


In this 5-days seminar we will explore all parts of this unique system in theory and practice, accompanied by explanations, how the human consciousness functions and how the body with its energy centers (chakras) can be integrated into the yoga practice.


YOGA AND MINDFULNESS

15th - 18th of August 2018

We will use techniques from yoga and mindfulness work to come back to our body, into the here and now. We will pair our daily asana and pranayama practice (body postures and breathing exercises) with meditation techniques like walking meditation or short sessions of sitting meditation.

Enriched with some theoretical input, this will enable us to connect to our inner self and our body, to leave the struggles of everyday life behind and to feel our true essence.
For the whole seminar we will be supported by the dedicated cooks of Moro Madoto, exclusively preparing delicious vegetarian organic meals for this seminar.
