Yoga – An Inner Path

Sun., 29 September 2024 – Fri., 4 October 2024

In Reith, Tyrol, Austria


Experience the profound stillness beyond the agitated surface of one’s own thoughts.

 

The asana classes focus on:

  • Self-observation: Experience how gravity stretches the spine in various asanas, creates a relaxed stretch and deepens the relaxation pose
  • Self-observation: How is my breath? Shallow or deep, fast or slow, and what thought patterns arise as a result
  • Holding the asanas brings body and mind into balance
  • Improving motor skills and refining perceptions through asana variations
  • The conscious coordination of movement and breath in the Sun Salutation
  • A flexible spine for a flexible mind

The talks cover:

  • Practical ways to cultivate positive thoughts
  • Obstacles in the meditation practice and how to overcome them
  • Withdrawing our minds from the external sensory world to a realm of silence
  • Discover the silence beneath the agitated surface of your thoughts
  • Yoga Sutras: timeless teachings on analysis and control of the mind
  • The Self, the aspect inherent in every human being That knows reality
  • Yoga – union with inner peace
