Breath as a cycle of life
Time & Location
About the Event
WORKSHOP ON YOGA, BREATHING & BREATHWORK
That which you call yourself, is your breath. If you change your breath, you change yourself.
Breathing of all things has the greatest impact on your health. It owns the power to change the mode of your whole nervous system. It is capable of charging you with energy, alleviating fear and stress as well as shifting your perspective on things. Breath determines our lives, affects our moods - and forms a perfect cycle.
Time runs linearly, it seems, but yoga has always viewed the world as cyclic. In the core of the cyclic world view lies the concept of prana, the life current or life force. Breath can be understood as a gross expression of prana, the closest and easiest for us to understand. It reveals the cyclic patterns on all levels. As above, so below.
In this workshop we combine the methods of yoga and science-based breathwork practice. You will experience the methods of traditional kaula yoga that is deeply rooted in Ayurveda, the Indian science of life. You will understand the basic building blocks for a balancing, skillful yoga as well as breathwork practice, and start to appreciate the breath as a sophisticated, subtle tool for transforming life.
The practices will help you to relax, sleep better, reduce inflammation as well as come back to your body.
The workshop is suitable for all levels. Prior experience is not necessary. Especially I welcome anyone who is interested in getting more intimate with breathing and in using breathing tools for improving health.
WHAT KIND OF YOGA IS THIS:
Kaula yoga is a tantric yoga system that encourages its practitioners to live to their full potential and to celebrate life. Deeply rooted in the vedic science, the system sees the human as whole, mind and body being like two sides of a coin. Yoga is seen as a wholesome practice for optimizing life, living without limiting fears and shifting awareness. (Note! As opposed to neo-tantra, tantra is not traditionally interested in sexuality.)
Sanni Parkkinen is an experienced yoga teacher (E-RYT 500) and breathwork coach coming from Finland. Living in Trondheim, Norway, she teaches yoga in which the human being is seen as whole, mind and body being like two sides of a coin. She’s coaching people to live happier & healthier with emphasis on physiology first - meaning that nervous system health is the key to solve many of the issues we tend to call mental. Sanni has lived and worked in various yoga ashrams and centers in India, USA and Canada. For the past three years she has immersed herself in traditional non-dual Shaiva-Shakta tantra with teachers such as Miska Käppi (close student of Acarya Bhagavan Shri Shanmukha Anantha Natha) and tantra scholar Christopher Hareesh Wallis.
Sanni will give a short talk about the theme and then guide you through a balancing Tri Dosha (yoga asana) sequence, breathwork session and some pranayama practices. The evening will be finished with a thorough relaxation.
