ASHTANGA YOGA WORKSHOP
with EDDIE STERN
 
  from NEW YORK

LA YOGA SHALA, MILAN
9 to 12 of MARCH 2017

NOT TO BE MISSED EVENT OF ASHTANGA YOGA THROUGH ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT VOICE OF THIS DISCIPLINE!

For the forth time in Italy at LA YOGA SHALA in Milan, great return of Eddie that will bring the authenticity of his teaching to all students of Ashtanga Yoga in Italy. The youngest of the so-called Senior Teacher of Ashtanga Yoga in the world, Eddie has followed for almost twenty years', uninterruptedly, the teaching of his GURU SRI K.PATTABHI JOIS, from whom he could learn the most profound essence of Ashtanga Yoga. Always close to Guruji until his death in 2009, with great devotion and dedication, devoted his entire life to the study of Ashtanga Yoga even in its lesser known aspects. He has studied sanskrit and many of the scriptures of the Indian tradition as well as all aspects of the culture of the subcontinent. Eddie Stern is the personification of the western Indian thought and is the most authentic expression of how this can be applied to the rhythms of our lives so far away from the eastern system. He's one of the most recognized and extraordinary teachers of Ashtanga Yoga in the world and his return to Milan will be a great opportunity to share with him the true and pure essence of Ashtanga Yoga.

WORKSHOP'S TOPICS:

Yoga Sutras: Vibhuti Pada
Pranayama, Chanting and Philosophy 

How some of the super powers, or Siddhis, listed in chapter 3 of the Yoga Sutras, go address both emotional powers and also have interesting correlations to the functions of the autonomic nervous system. In the theory portion of this workshop, we’ll take a look at some of these sutras, and also speak about the activities of the autonomic nervous system in relation to Yoga. We’ll begin and end with chanting some simple yet powerful Sanskrit mantras, and practice some simple Pranayama to prepare us for the Chanting. 

Therapeutics Class:
In the yoga therapy class we will do some light yoga poses that will address alternative postures for knee and shoulder problems that are common in yoga and every day life. Feel free to bring your questions about poses that are troubling you, and we will have time to try ways to make those poses more comfortable for you. 
While we won’t have time to address everyone’s particular problems, we can look at general alternative positions that could be helpful for everyone to know. 

Pranayama Class: 
What is prana? Is it breath? Is it energy? Is it something else? In this class we will look at some different ideas on what prana is, and how the breathing exercises called pranayama help to harness it. We will also practice some simple, safe and effective pranayama practices.
