Om Studio | Ashtanga Yoga Athens is
H a p p y and H o n o r e d to host
for the second time
EDDIE STERN in Athens , Greece
for a 4 day workshop on the 23rd-26th June , 2016.
Eddie Stern is a phenomenal teacher. He is the only western teacher that has been so close to Pattabhi Jois and guided personally by him to the beauty of Ashtanga Yoga teaching him Asanas, Pranayama, Chanting, Rituals and Texts.
His workshops are heart and mind blowing as Eddie has a unique way to transmit the Essence and Profounds of the traditional Ashtanga Yoga. His work is based on how a traditional eastern method can be applied to the everyday life in order to benefit the most from an ancient practice, the Ashtanga Yoga.
Some words by Eddie
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 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.
