The tradition of Classical Yoga is a contemplative, meditative path, guiding courageous and curious seekers towards the true nature of their enigmatic human existence, giving rise to transformative wisdom and leaving in its wake the fetters of physical and mental suffering.
Vinyasa Krama (movement and sequence methodology) as expounded by the legendary father of modern yoga, Sri T. Krishnamacharya is considered the most comprehensive representation of Krishnamacharya’s teachings of yogasana. Built upon the foundation and existential wisdom ofPatañjali’s Yoga-Sūtras, Vinyasa Krama is thus considered a classical form of yoga.
The Yoga-Sūtras are the systematization of thousands of years of liberation-seeking inquiry practiced upon the Indian subcontinent. A compendium of wisdom, the Yoga-Sūtrasare a detailed psychosomatic methodology which promises to reveal and then extinguish the limitations of the conditioned mind, not through blind faith, but through direct personal experience.
Over the course of the weekend we will explore the extensive sequencing of the Vinyasa Krama method ofKrishnamacharya, dissect the psychological framework of the Classical Yoga tradition, and apply the most relevant and potent of Patañjali’s sūtras for mental well-being to an extensive, full-spectrum vinyasa practice (asana – pranayama – meditation).
The intention of this journey together is not to indoctrinate, for ultimate truth is beyond words and techniques. We gather instead to engage with ancient tools and practices capable of revealing the inherent wisdom within the gift of consciousness, providing a reference point from which our own innate intelligence can contemplate, discern and investigate the existential query which has driven the tradition of yoga for centuries:
This intensive is created for and accessible to all levels of practitioners and geared specifically towards those individuals with an insatiable curiosity for the enigmatic nature of human existence and a passion to evolve beyond the limitations of the conditioned mind. Each session consists of 45 mins discussion on Yoga Sutras and an asana, pranayama & meditation practice.
