THE 8 LIMBS OF YOGA:
Bound between philosophy and practice of AshtangaVinyasa Yoga
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga je jedan od najstarijih oblika Hatha yoge, aspekta yoge koji koristi fizičko tijelo kao sredstvo proširenja svijesti. Dobro je poznato da je Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga vrlo korisna praksa koja može donijeti potpuno zdravlje na svim nivoima postojanja: onom fizičkom, emocionalnom I mentalnom. No, Ashtanga Yoga je puno više od toga.
Utemeljena na tisućljetnoj tradiciji velikog mudraca Patanjalija, radi se o vrlo pragmatičnom sustavu koji donosi bitne promjene u svaki aspect našeg života: onaj osobni, socijalni, profesionalni I duhovni.
Prije otprilike 2000 godina, ovaj mudrac prikupio je cjelovite spoznaje o znanosti joge I kompilirao ih u knjigu sačinjenu od 196 aforizama pod nazivom “Patanjali Yoga Sutras”. U tom drevnom spisu, Patanjali otkriva, poprvi put u ljudskoj povijesti, pragmatičan sustav znanja kako primjeniti mudrost joge u svakodnevnom životu. On ga naziva: Ashtanga Yoga, osam udova yoge. Kroz praksu osam udova, kaže on, sve nečistoće nestaju I budi se svijetlost mudrosti.Današnja, moderna praksa Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoge predstavlja jasan I precizan put koji nas otvara ka primjeni ... ove mudrosti na prostirci, pa tako i u svakodnevnim situacijama kako bi doveli naš život na višu razinu postojanja.
Gledajući praktično, AshtangaVinyasa Yoga koristi dinamičan spoj daha I pokreta koji uspostavlja kontrolu nad tijelom, živčanim sustavom I umom.
To je izazovna I magična praksa u kojoj dah, naša istinska životna sila, void tijelo kroz protočni slijed yoga položaja (asana), kako bi se postiglostanje "meditacije u pokretu".
Što ćete naučiti na ovoj radionici?
Na ovoj radionici naučiti ćemo kako ispravno vježbati Ashtanga yogu, doživljavajući užitak veze daha I pokreta pod okriljem drevne I šarmantne mudrosti koja stoji iza ove prekrasne prakse.
Koristiti ćemo ključne djelove "Patanjali Yoga Sutra" kako bi bolje razumjeli zašto Pattabhi Jois, otac moderne Ashtanga VinyasaYoge, uvijek ističe da je Ashtanga Yoga zapravo Patanjali Yoga.
Uz teoretsko znanje o Sutrama, drugi dio ovog seminara bazirat će se na tradicionalnom načinu izvođenja prve serije Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoge stavljajući tako u iskustvo koncepte koje tvore samu srž prakse koja je označila početak ere dinamičnih stilova joge.
All levels welcome.
