ASHTANGA YOGA WORKSHOP
with EDDIE STERN
 
  from NEW YORK

LA YOGA SHALA, MILAN
7 to 10 of MARCH 2019

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

For the fifth 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:

Thinking, Feeling, Acting and Being: Four Modes of Yoga (Thursday)
Pranayama, Chanting and Philosophy 
One of the meanings of the word yoga is union. Yoga teaches us practices by which we can experience this feeling of union with our inner self. In this class we will discuss the four yogas, called Jnana, Bhakti, Karma and Raja, that are the basic ways we can experience a union with our inner self through four ways we experience the world: through thought, action, feeling, and being. The yogis categorized these four ways based on both the ways we experience the world, and the four temperaments of people that draw them to the different yoga. Each of these yogas can lead us to a sense of inner peace, knowing and knowledge, and having a knowledge about these different approaches can help to broaden our vision about how our practices can pervade our daily life. 
 
Life As Ritual (Friday)
Before the puja (worship) on Friday evening, we will have a one hour lecture on how, in the Hindu tradition, the entire universe is seen as a grand ritual being played out on the altar of the Divine. In this view, performing simple, daily rituals, can ritualize even the most mundane aspects of our lives, so that every action we perform during the day becomes sacred. 

One Simple Thing (Saturday) 
In this lecture we will discuss some of the underlying mechanisms of yoga that make it an effective practice for self-regulation, emotional regulation, and spiritual experience. Drawing from Eddie’s upcoming book (to be released on March 12th, 2019), he will discuss a variety of scientific findings and yogic explanations that complement both an Eastern and Western approach to spiritual practice. Even after thousands of years, yoga continues to be an infinitely interesting and exciting practice and philosophy, never growing old, and always staying new. In this class we will look at some of the reasons why this is so. 

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.
 
Sunday’s Lecture will primarily be questions and answers, and we will review some of the material that we covered on the previous days. We will also have a longer chanting and meditation period on Sunday as well.
