Traditional Kaula Yoga - (What it is) To be me
Who or what am I in this cycle of life? We all spend countless hours in search for meaning, our own path. What stops us in realising that to full extent is fear. Control. Blocks we have built in the past and which we reinforce daily with habits, lifestyle and behaviour.
The true engine of life lies hidden. How we see the world and ourselves is a reflection of the unconscious mind. This means that to truly affect our lives, we must become skillful in guiding our whole body-mind system into right direction. Mere conscious control, discipline or rules do not take us far.
In this workshop you will experience the methods of traditional kaula yoga. You will start to see yoga practice and meditation as something that allows one’s true potential to emerge. By allowing, letting go and relaxing (even in dynamic asanas) you will develop ability to dive deep into the ocean of bliss, beyond the controlling conscious mind.
FOR WHOM: The workshop is suitable for all levels. Prior experience is not necessary. Especially I welcome anyone who ponders over themes like meaning, purpose or own path. For more experienced practitioners the workshop gives valuable insight into the philosophy of tantra and workings of the mind.
WHAT IS KAULA YOGA: 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 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.)
ABOUT SANNI: Sanni Parkkinen is an experienced yoga teacher (RYT-500) coming originally from Finland. Living in Trondheim since spring 2019, she coaches and guides people to live happy & healthy through her company Mindgrit AS. 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 appreciates her Nordic roots by working with drums and guiding her students through meditative journeys.
PRACTICAL INFO: Sanni will give a short talk about the theme and then guide you through a semi-dynamic Danda Flow (yoga asana) sequence followed by a balancing Tri Dosha (yoga asana) sequence. The evening will be finished with a thorough relaxation accompanied with the sound of a healing drum that Sanni has herself made.
