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.
In these classes you will learn a 7 asana cycle, through which we can form first sketches of the poses in more lively way.
