Tibetan Heart Yoga SPECIAL CLASSES: every last Friday of the month!!! info

Join me for another Tibetan Heart Yoga SPECIAL CLASS: the Yoga of Inner Fire.

Friday 27.1.2017
18:30 – 20:30
Yoga Garden München (Rumfordstrasse 4)
25 EUR

In this 2h class, we will explore the Tibetan Heart Yoga (THY) series 3, a series based on the practice of Inner Fire. This can be seen as a purification practice, where obstacles are being burned, to let new things come. We will turn this into a personal practice, where each of us will burn the afflictions that we need to get ridd of.

When our subtle body will be purified, the practice will take us to a new level: to incorporate the Four Infinite Thoughts. In Master Patanjali’s words (The Yoga Sutras):

I.32 Tat pratisheda-artham eka tattva abhyasah

I.33 Maitri karuna muditopekshanam sukha duhkha punya-apunya vishayanam bhavanatash chitta prasadanam

“…And if you wish to stop these obstacles, there is one, and only one, crucial practice for doing so. You must use kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. Learn to keep your feelings in balance, whether something feels good or whether it hurts; whether something is enjoyable, or distasteful…”

Inner and Outer methods: We will work from the inside with our thoughts, meditations, intentions and ethics, and from the outside with our asana (poses) and breath.

Modern and ancient asanas will be combined. In this series, the asana are not demanding, all levels are welcome! The most important aspect is where your mind is directed to.

The THY system is based on ancient Buddhist Wisdom rooted in a lineage started by Master Naropa and Niguma, yogis who lived around 1100 AD.
The combination of modern and ancient yoga asana (poses) and their corresponding meditation drives us to cultivate virtuous states of Mind and Heart. Yoga is not only physical exercise; it becomes a transformative spiritual daily practice.
