09:30 – 10:00 – Meditition
10:00 to 13:00 Ground Control
Standing and balancing asanas are the building blocks of a yoga asana practice. They are associated with the first chakra – muladhara, located at the base of the spine.
Muladhara chakra corresponds to our relationships to our parents, family, home, career, money, environment, issues of survival and the element earth.
By Earth we mean all things, all manifestations of reality. Earth not only means the ground we walk on, the air we breathe, or the water we drink, but also all the beings-animals, plants, and minerals-that we come into contact with daily.
Yoga teaches us that everything is connected
According to Patanjali, the seat that you establish should be steady and joyful, in body as well as mind. The word asana, therefore, also describes the goal of this yoga practice, which is to consciously relate to all beings with steadiness and joy
Through this grounding practice, the body will become strong and articulate and the mind alert and focused, which is very helpful for the practitioner to become more conscious, finding inner balance and poise to stand on our own feet.
13:00 to 14:30: Lunch break
14:30 to 15:30 Tea and chat satsang on the teachings of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali (Included in full weekend)
15:30-18.00 Practices to bring a happy spirit, contentment in all areas of our lives.
Patanjali Yoga Sutra – SadhanaPada.
In the second chapter of Yoga Sutras, Patanjali described a three-stepped method:
tapah svadhyaya ishvara-pranidhana kriya-yogah
Here Patanjali provides the practical means of purifying and concentrating the mind, so that nirodha is possible through purification, Self study and surrender to a higher power.
Patanjali is compassionate for souls who are unable to surrender themselves to Divine grace alone, and provides a chapter describing more detailed conscious spiritual practices. (Sadhana)
Providing an eight-step method for those of us who still need more practical “how-to” direction in the ways to untangle ourselves from the dukha (suffering).
Since many of us feel that our unhappiness is caused by the actions of others, the eight- step plan begins with the Yamas (restraints). The Yamas address our relationships with others.
When we begin to simplify our lives and live in a more compassionate way, mind clutter is removed and we can begin to feel more content.
This workshop will include teachings on ethics, lifestyle, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, meditation techniques and chanting as an integrated approach to Yoga.
We will building up the yoga fire with a tapasic practice and looking at disturbances of mind with inversions.
Finishing with meditation to reflect on how these useful tools given to us from ancient scriptures will help us to move forward with grace.
09:30 – 10:00 – Meditation
10:00 -13:00 Hip Parade
The activities and stresses of our daily lives can often lead to tightness and discomfort in our hips. Releasing this tension is crucial for our overall health.
In this deep hip opening workshop, you will learn to step out of the unconscious need to jam your body somewhere and find instead a sensible, sensitive and compassionate approach to the hips and leg rotation.
With a mindful approach to the area of swadhisthana chakra, we can release stress and negative emotional memories, which may be stored in the hips on an energetic level.

Pranayama is the practice of controlling or regulating vital life force (prana) in order to increase lung capacity, vitality, clear focus and overall wellbeing.
