The Love of Wisdom - Yoga Sutra and Yoga Philosophy with Gregor Maehle

Sat 3 February 2018 - 4 February 2018

Cost: AU$380

  

About the workshop:

The Yoga Sutra is a tool to gain inner freedom. Inner freedom means to be able to dictate our mind what to do, what it needs to think or when it should be quiet rather than our mind bossing us around. Studying the Yoga Sutra is a training that teaches you to use your mind in the same efficient and creative way as asana is a training to use your body. For this purpose we need to be able to understand and free us from our conditioning (vasana). You will understand how conditioning is created by your past thoughts, words and actions and how to change future conditioning by changing your present thoughts, words and actions.

Another important goal of Yoga Sutra is the integration of meditative experiences or glimpses into our life. We may have had great experiences of happiness but without their proper integration, apart from the actual moment of experience, they are often not of lasting value. The Yoga Sutra helps us to put them into perspective and integrate them into our lives, leading to lasting change.

These hours can be put towards a Yoga Alliance or Yoga Australia accredited teacher training.

This workshop is taught over one full weekend (approx. 16 hours).

Be Inspired to Feel the Joy in Your Practice

Graeme Northfield embodies true wisdom and foundation with a fresh, innovative approach to this ageless practice. After meeting Shri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore in 1982, Graeme dedicated the next 20 years of his life to receiving the transmission of traditional Ashtanga practice directly from Guruji.

Sat 9 June 2018 - 10 June 2018

About the workshop:

With each breath we shed the weight of collected conditioning and limitation. Slowly disentangling from internal dramas that create impulsive or unwanted reactions and behaviours. Breaking the patterns that cycle to the same outcomes and discontent.And ultimately revealing the natural self by the incremental removal of all that obscures it.It is mindful repetition of practice that permits thedepth and potency required to promote this healing and transformation.
