Yoga Workshop with Eddie Stern @ Yoga Circle

This 1-day program will be oriented towards understanding the mechanisms that make yoga a highly effective practice of our body-mind-spirit existence. We will discuss from Yogic and Western views how the core yoga practices affect the communication from the brain to body, and body to brain, which shapes our perception of how we respond, adapt, and perceive ourselves and reality. We will discuss how the practice of yoga can create enduring states of calm, quiet, and insight in the body and mind, and do two simple breathing practices from Eddie’s upcoming book, Healing Through Breathing, that illustrate the body-brain/brain-body connection, along with a simple chanting practice. 

There will be 2 different asana classes, the early morning more suitable for regular ashtanga yoga practitioners already familiar with the primary series, and the early evening class which will be an open level class suitable to anyone, including complete beginners, as it offers a broader and more accessible approach to yoga asana (not ashtanga specific).

The day will end with a lecture, which includes some pranayama and chanting, for everybody who took part in either of the 2 asana classes. There will also be time for Q&A's.

LEVEL

All levels welcome for option 2, no previous experience necessary.

Regular ashtanga practitioners are invited to join option 1, bearing in mind that the led class will not be a traditional primary series class.

* This morning led class will present Eddie's holistic approach to ashtanga yoga: starting with the practice of pranayama, then an adapted version of primary series, followed by a few poses of the intermediate sequence. This is a great all-around class, addressing the full range of bodily motions plus including the important breath practices of pranayama. This class is an hour and forty-five minutes long and suitable for regular ashtanga yoga practitioners.

**Sangraha means “a collection” or “compendium.” This class is a grounding and calming sequence of postures that moves from lying down, to standing, seated, inversions, backbends, stabilizing, twists, and pratyahara practices, in order to have an intentional effect on the signaling of the nervous system. The postures come from the larger Hatha Yoga tradition, but not from any one lineage. Eddie has put these sequences together over the past couple of years of experimentation and exploration of Hatha Yoga practices and texts, and this class is reflective of how he currently practice asanas – after 5 years of practicing and teaching Sivananda Yoga (1987-1992), and then 30 years of Ashtanga Yoga (starting from 1992 till the present). 

Eddie will be back for a full weekend of teachings in october (18-20 October 2024). This is just a brief introduction to his current way of weaving asana, pranayama, meditation and chanting into his classes and lectures.
