      EDDIE STERN in Athens, Greece

for a 5-day workshop, June 25th -29th, 2014.

eddie sternEddie Stern is a phenomenal teacher. He is the only western teacher that has been so close to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for two decades.
Eddie has been guided by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois to the beauty of Ashtanga Yoga having studied next to him Asanas, Pranayama, Chanting and Rituals.
His workshops are heart and mind blowing as Eddie reflects, teaches and transmits with love, humor and generosity
the Essence and the Profounds of the traditional Ashtanga Yoga .
Most of his work is based on how a traditional eastern method can be applied to everyday modern life and how all people can benefit the most from this ancient practice, the Ashtanga Yoga.
Eddie Stern has only recently “broke” his Manhattan teaching borders and we are very happy that he will share all of his precious knowledge with us here in Athens.
For those interested in ‘labels’, he is Certified to teach the Ashtanga Yoga method by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.Eddie is a charismatic and inspirational teacher and this will be a very useful and ‘juicy’ workshop for practitioners of all levels.
Description of the workshop by Eddie:


[contemplative in greek:στοχαστικός,περισυλλογιστικός]

Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the renowned Ashtanga yoga master of Mysore, once famously said:
‘when the mind is quiet, the asana is correct’.
In his view, and the view of the ancient texts, the goal of yoga is to quiet the mind so that we may have a deep experience of consciousness, and the method that Pattabhi Jois taught to experience this was through bodily postures, breathing and concentration.

Though he had a wide range of methods that he had at his command, his asana sequences are by far the most well known.During this five-day workshop, we will practice Pattabhi Jois ‘s traditional approach to yoga, but also practice some of the other dimensions that he taught and practiced himself, including chanting, pranayama, and discussion of philosophy.
These practices, taken together, allow us to enter into a wonderful world where yoga exists as an internal practice, and helps us define for ourselves
what it is to engage in a truly contemplative practice, and how a truly contemplative practice will lead us to engage with the world.Eddie Stern is a yoga instructor raised in New York City. He studied Ashtanga Yoga, chanting, philosophy and ritual under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, of Mysore, from 1991-2009,
and is the founder of the Broome Street Ganesha Temple. He co-publishes Namarupa , Categories of Indian Thought , a Hindu art and philosophy magazine
and runs the Urban Yogis project that brings yoga and meditation to young adults and youth in disadvantaged and at risk-to-violence communities
in New York city with his collaborator Deepak Chopra. He has published several books on Pattabhi Jois and Ashtanga Yoga,
including a translation of Pattabhi Jois’ s 1960 treatise, Yoga Mala.
