Exploration of inner Space
Workshop with Ben Makosch in English
Saturday, December 7th, from 9am-12am
Costs: CHF 80
The yearning for union is as old as mankind. What Freud terms the "oceanic feeling", can, in yoga, find its representation in the desire to understand the interconnection of mind-body-emotions.
In this sequenced class we explore inner space. As the word tantra derives from the Sanskrit root tan – meaning to stretch, span or expand. This word is also the root of the Latin tendere - from which we take words such as tend, attend, intend, extend and tone. A string can only vibrate and make a tone by being ‘stretched’, ‘extended’ or ‘spanned’ to a point of tension. It is through this inner tone that we learn to understand the essence of asana yoga practice. Not as a preparatory practice to transcendence or exiting of the body, but more a realization that the power of the cosmos lies within each atom of our being.
This class will be a journey into the self. Our practice combines purifying pranayama and kriya with asana and meditation techniques. The effects of the practice are intended to open a window into self reflection for each yogini or yogi.
The class will be dynamic and demanding. All with a solid foundation in asana practice are welcome.
Strong breathwork – please come on an empty stomach.
