About Paul

Paul is certified by Guruji, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, to teach the traditional method of Ashtanga Yoga. He is also a long time, dedicated students of Sri O.P.Tiwari, one of the few remaining classical yogis and master of pranayama, and is certified by him to teach Pranayama. He has practiced pranayama for many years under Tiwariji’s direct guidance which has led to deep insight and understanding of the practice. He uses this as a base for intelligence in asana to be applied appropriately for the student. Paul continues with his regular routine of asana, pranayama and meditation on a daily basis and through love of the subject matter keeps up a keen study of the classical texts and scientific interpretations of what goes on in yoga.
Paul grew up in Dublin. After completing his degree at Trinity College he was bound for New York where his life in yoga began. Paul runs Yoga Thailand in Koh Samui, and currrently divides his time between there and his home in Atlanta where he is following a PhD program at Emory University in Atlanta, USA, in the field of Biological Anthropology, bringing the yogic practices and philosophy to the scientific field.

David's Motto ist: safe - simple - sincere

Unterrichte (und praktiziere) sicher, einfach und von Herzen. Besondere Eckpunkte seines Yoga Verständnisses sind: Philosophie, Pranayama und Chanting. Natürlich kommen auch Asana, Anatomie und Didaktik nicht zu kurz, wenn Ihr aber richtig tief in die Materie einsteigen wollt, ist reine 'Technik' nicht ausreichend. Liebe und Hingabe sind dafür nötig, 2 Jahre regelmäßige Yogapraxis (muss nicht Ashtanga sein!) wären gut, aber es sind keine akrobatischen Fertigkeiten Voraussetzung. 

Sei dabei und schenke Dir das Beste für Dich was es gibt: anhaltendes tiefes Wohlbefinden und Verstehen, sprudelndes Glück und inneren Frieden. Meldet Ihr Euch bitte (für den Mai-Termin) recht bald bei uns:

About Manju

Born on November 16th, 1944, Manju Jois is the son of Guruji, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. At the age of 7, Manju was awakened early each day by his father to begin lessons that would forever change the course of his life and the lives of those who would study with him in the years to come. He began teaching at the age of 15 with his father and has taught continuously for the last 44 years.

It was in 1975 that they taught a two-month workshop to eager students in California. This was the first time that Ashtanga yoga was brought to the U.S. Manju decided to stay in the U.S. and teach and he has been doing so continuously on the east and west coasts and internationally ever since. Nearly 35 years since Guruji and Manju first brought Ashtanga to the U.S., it has grown to be one of the most popular forms of Yoga in the West, practised by millions, and Pattabhi Jois a now a world-renowned Guru. Manju's intention is to teach in the way of the ancient tradition and bring the many benefits of Ashtanga yoga to his students. It is our great privilege and pleasure to have him come to share his great depth of knowledge of the practice with us.

Chakra Awareness Workshop with Paula Herbert 

Chakra Awareness Workshop with Paula Herbert
 

Friday - Sunday, 21 -23 November 2014

This weekend is about personal development; about getting to know yourself at the more subtle levels of your being. 

Over the course of the workshop we will explore the subtle energy system, through the seven major energy centres (Chakras). The human energy field is affected by touch, diet, sound, attitudes and beliefs, relationships, life experience, trauma and environmental factors.

When energy flows efficiently without any major blockages, we have a strong foundation for good health. Once we understand how energy moves through the body and how this energy flow affects our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being, we can use specific chakra balancing techniques to optimise the vibration of each energy centre, bringing body, mind and spirit into harmony and restoring our natural state of wholeness.

Friday Evening: Session 1

18:00 - 21:00: 

Themes: 

  • Overview of the subtle energy system and the seven chakras
  • Chakra Meditation
  • Asana (posture) practice to tune into the Chakras
Sessions 2, 3 and 4 will examine each chakra in detail. The physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of each will be discussed. The sessions will include time to explore any issues that may surface for participants with the Chakra, as well as meditation and balancing techniques, including Yoga asana, to allow for introspection and the development of self-awareness.

Saturday Morning: Session 2 

08.00 - 11:00: 

Themes: 

  • Base (Muladhara) Chakra
  • Sacral (Swadhisthana) Chakra

Saturday Afternoon: Session 3

14:00 - 17:00: 

Themes: 

  • Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra

  • Throat (Vishuddhi) Chakra
