About

This 6 week course introduces the art of asana practice,

and differs to most ways of approaching asana. 

For rather than working out of the body towards a state of mind,

here, from the mind, we view simple ideas ,

which we aim to express through the body.

Just as an artist expresses an idea in a painting or sculpture,

so too we express ideas, which relate to the asana,

through the physical body

Ideas and 7 cakra

The ideas behind the asana relate to the 7 cakra or soul centres.

These have been described from the insight of yoga master Heinz Grill,

and offer a new step on the yoga path.

For now the yoga aim of seeking connection to a meaningful part of oneself, can be met by learning to the express these meaningful ideas through the body.

These ideas can be briefly summarised as: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The art of sculpting the idea of the 7 cakra 

The artistry to express the various ideas through our practice are the soul’s capacities to:

•    think the idea

•    feel the idea

•    move with the idea

This way of practising takes time to develop,

and first experiences may seem small, but with practice what results is a joyful, aesthetic way of practising asana, which gives to the inner life as well as to the physical body.
