Sottrarli agli impegni internazionali e dirottarli in Italia non è stato facile! Per questo Monica ed io, Christiane, siamo così felici di annunciarvi l’arrivo per la prima volta in Italia di Daniel Rāma e Shakti Bird! Abbiamo pensato per voi a due diverse possibilità per conoscere la loro pratica : un Retreat di una settimana ed un weekend intensivo…

N.B.
Su specifica richiesta degli insegnanti, entrambi gli eventi prevederanno un numero limitato di partecipanti.

Programma:

Venerdi’ 10 Maggio | ore 19.30-21 | 40eur
Functional vinyasa master Class: sfida il tuo corpo e la tua mente attraverso 90 minuti di movimento fluido, guidati da Sarah “Shakti Bird” Bonsall. Shakti è rinomata per l’intensita e la varietà delle sue pratiche. Gli studenti esploreranno transizioni stimolanti, una sequenza di movimento funzionale completo, sotto la supervisione e l’assistenza di Daniel Rama per tutta la sessione.
* Questa master class è aperta e accessibile a tutti i livelli.

Sabato 11 Maggio | ore 10-12.30 | 65eur
Becoming Balance: inversioni livello 1 ed equilibrio sulle braccia: Concentrandosi sui componenti fondamentali attraverso una gamma di inversioni e asana di equilibrio sulle mani, Becoming Balance è una sequenza progettata per aiutare a migliorare la propria tecnica così da poter accedere a livelli più profondi di fisicità. Gli studenti esploreranno un mix di asana ed esercizi tra cui mayurasana, bakasana (corvo) e varianti , sarvangasana ( verticale sulla testa), verticale e oltre.
* Appropriato per principianti, studenti intermedi e avanzati.

Sabato 11 Maggio | ore 14.30-17 | 65eur
Intelligent Spine: Backbending Workshop: la pratica dello yoga ruota principalmente attorno alla funzionalità della colonna vertebrale umana ed al suo potenziamento. I piegamenti all’indietro, se eseguiti in modo inappropriato, sono tra le principali cause di infortuni, dolori e di non avanzamento nella pratica individuale. Se eseguito correttamente, il piegamento all’indietro può apportare profondi benefici a livello fisico, mentale, emotivo ed energetico.
In questa sessione, studieremo nel profondo come sviluppare efficacemente e rafforzare la nostra colonna vertebrale.
* Intelligent Spine è una classe appropriata a tutti i livelli e altamente raccomandata.

Domenica 12 Maggio | ore 10-12.30 | 65eur
Beyond Balance: workshop di handstand: basandosi sui principi di Becoming Balance, Beyond Balance dà la possibilità di approfondire il proprio rapporto con l’equilibrio fisico studiando ed applicando verticali sulle braccia e varianti. Rama e Shakti sono conosciuti in tutto il mondo per il saper condividere la loro esperienza ed avanzata conoscenza nell’ambito dell’equilibrio sulle mani. Gli studenti approfondiranno gli elementi indispensabili alla padronanza fisica, per poter agevolmente mantenere la verticale in modo indipendente e giocare con le varianti più avanzate.
* Aperto a tutti ma e’ preferibile anche la partecipazione alla lezione di sabato mattina*

Domenica 12 Maggio | ore 14.30-17 | 40eur
Chiavi per creare te stesso: la pratica della meditazione: pur essendo noto al mondo soprattutto attraverso le immagini di fantasiose e avanzate asana fisiche, e’ nella sessione dedicata alla meditazione che Rama condivide i suoi segreti personali per creare le condizioni ideali al raggiungimento dei propri obiettivi.
Durante questa sessione i partecipanti acquisiranno potenti strumenti utili sia nella vita quotidiana che nel avanzamento della propria pratica. Si consiglia di portare una coperta ed un cuscino da meditazione. (In alternativa potrà essere utilizzato un tappetino da yoga arrotolato).

Talia Sutra in Milan – First Time Ever!

IMG_3959

 

*English below*

Sono super contenta di annunciarvi l’arrivo di Talia Sutra a Milano il 13 e 14 Aprile!

Dalla sua infanzia, Talia si è dedicata al movimento, alla danza, allo yoga, alla meditazione e al veganismo, imparando abilità e tecnica impeccabili da maestri nel mondo del balletto e dell’arte.
Talia ha studiato e praticato molte forme di yoga tra cui Bikram, Dharma, Ashtanga e varie forme di Vinyasa.

Ha accumulato anni di esperienza integrando in maniera unica vinyasa fluidi e creativi con l’intensità statica dell’hatha yoga, nel silenzio intenso e concentrato. Le sue lezioni ispirano gioia, allineamento, respiro e concentrazione. Offre una profonda comprensione delle asana tradizionali e si specializza sia nella teoria che nella pratica delle posizioni di backbending, per le quali ha creato un suo metodo specifico.
Crede che la pratica dello yoga sia una finestra per l’autorealizzazione: possiamo trovare la sensibilità, l’intuizione e l’ispirazione attraverso la connessione con il mondo apparentemente ordinario che ci circonda e nessun insegnante è più grande di quello interiore.

– – –

Programma:

Workshop 1 | Sabato 13 aprile | ore13-16 – € 65

Il METODO: L’inarcamento

Unisciti a Talia Sutra in questo workshop di 3 ore progettato per trasformare la tua consapevolezza, comprensione, tecnica ed esecuzione degli inarcamenti… e non solo!
La nostra colonna vertebrale, come un albero di nervi, collega la mente al corpo e trasporta più energia di quanto possiamo immaginare attraverso il suo centro.
In questa classe, verrai introdotto al metodo di backbending in tre fasi di Talia che ha aiutato migliaia di persone in tutto il mondo.
Attraverso istruzioni chiare, otterrai strumenti di trasformazione per rafforzare, allungare e guarire l’intera colonna vertebrale mentre scoprirai la quiete e la gioia delle asana.
Adatto a tutti i livelli di pratica.

Workshop 2 | Domenica 14 aprile | ore 13-16 – € 65

Il METODO: La flessibilità

La vera flessibilità fisica è un’estensione di uno stato d’essere flessibile: uno stato di resa consapevole.
In questa classe di 3 ore, verrai introdotto nel metodo di flessibilità in tre fasi di Talia e imparerai a riconoscere e forse anche a lasciar andare l’identificazione testarda con la resistenza.
Usando le asana come un portale al nostro mondo interiore, scoprirai la tua naturale presenza nello spazio un respiro alla volta.
Questo stato di flessibilità è naturale e tutti hanno accesso ad esso. Il metodo ti fornirà un modo semplice e reale per avvicinarti a questa pratica in modo tale che, fisicamente, mentalmente ed emotivamente, sarai in grado di navigare con più grazia in te stesso e nel mondo che ti circonda.

N.B.
È possibile prenotare anche la singola classe.

L’iscrizione sarà confermata a pagamento avvenuto.

She sees nothing as external to her studies and has learned impeccable skill and technique from masters in the world of ballet and art alike.
Talia has studied and practiced many forms of yoga including Bikram, Dharma, Ashtanga and various forms of vinyasa.

She has combined years of experience into her own unique blend of seamless, creative vinyasas and intense, focused hatha stillness. Her classes inspire joy, alignment, breath and focus. She offers a deep understanding of traditional asanas and specializes in both the theory and practice of backbending postures, for which she has created a method.

Anatomy Yoga workshop with Stu Girling!

IMG_0227
* scroll down for English version *

 

Il famoso Stu Girling di Purple Valley Ashtanga Yoga a Goa, India, finalmente a Milano! 🙂

Rinomato per tutte le interviste che fa ai piu grandi insegnanti di Ashtanga e non solo!

Stuart e’ il fondatore del famoso sito e canale YouTube loveyogaanatomy.com. Negli ultimi 7 anni ha insegnato anatomia relativa allo yoga nei teacher trainings e in workshops in giro per il mondo. Pratica da 15 anni, e’ laureato in discipline scientifiche nello studio della salute (BSc with Hons in Health Studies), e negli ultimi 10 anni ha offerto Therapeutic Bodywork (lavoro terapeutico sul corpo) esclusivamente per praticanti di yoga. La filosofia di fondo che guida quello che condivide e’ che la conoscenza e’ di nessun valore a meno che non possiamo capire come usarla ed avere un uso per essa. Tenendo presente tutto ciò, i workshops che offre si focalizzano su:
* cosa ci rende individuali/particolare
* come possiamo capire i nostri limiti e restrizioni
* come possiamo evitare infortuni e creare equilibrio

Stuart cerca di portare piu divertimento e sperimentazione funzionale in ogni workshop e sottolinea l’importanza di capire il concetto al posto di scassarsi la testa con i dettagli.

~*~

I workshops introducono concetti anatomici in un modo accessibile e divertente, molto pratici con l’intenzione di dare l’opportunità’ ai studenti di scoprire quei muscoli e zone del corpo che li limitano, dimostrando modi in cuoi possono lavorare su quelle zone con piu specificità’. L’idea e’ che tramite maggior comprensione di come diverse parti del corpo influenzano le posture finali, studenti o insegnanti possono imparare a liberare zone chiuse, creare sequenze piu efficienti e riducendo il rischio di stressare zone vulnerabili muovendosi nel modo giusto. I workshops sono adatti a tutti gli stili di yoga perché al posto di guardare l’allineamento specifico ad uno stile di yoga, Stuart prende la strada per esplorare cosa sta ostacolando il raggiungimento di un allineamento desiderato. Ogni studente di ogni livello e’ soddisfatto dandogli informazione in strati multipli e dando la possibilità’ ai studenti di esplorare in un modo pratico al proprio livello.

~*~

Programma:

Sabato 20 Ottobre | 10-13 | Le Anche
Andremo a vedere com’e costruito l’articolazione dell’anca e le differenze in ogni individuo. Andremo a vedere i muscoli attorno alle anche e come influenzano i movimenti in certe direzioni. Svilupperemo questi concetti con l’esplorazione pratica di certi gruppi di posture: piegamenti in avanti, rotazione dell’anca e adduzione e abduzione dell’anca.

Sabato 20 Ottobre | 14-17 | Le Spalle
Qui esamineremo il cingolo scapolare e l’articolazione della spalla, i fattori che influenzano la gamma di movimento e la possibilità’ di infortuni. Discussioni e implementazione pratica di posture relative alla spalla, ad esempio posture di equilibrio sulle mani, cane a testa in giu, chaturanga, binding (avvolgimento del braccio attorno a ginocchio o gamba), mani in preghiera dietro la schiena.

Domenica 21 Ottobre | 10-13 | Colonna Vertebrale e Articolazione Sacro Iliaca
Con la comprensione di com’e fatta la colonna vertebrale e dei muscoli attorno, diventano evidenti i tipi di movimenti che si possono fare in certe zone ed i potenziali infortuni. Il gruppo di posture che andremo ad esplorare e discutere sono: inarcamenti e torsioni e l’importanza dell’integrazione dei movimenti in altre articolazioni importanti dell’anca e spalle.

Domenica 21 Ottobre | 14-17 | Fascia e Biotensegrita’
C’e molto interesse tra le recenti informazioni sulla fascia e come potrebbe influenzare la pratica di yoga. In questo workshop esploreremo cosa si intende per fascia, a cosa serve e in che modo possiamo usare il nostro apprezzamento della fascia. Inoltre, andremo a vedere un modello proposto (Biotensegrita’) per cercare di capire come possiamo incorporare questa conoscenza in una spiegazione piu comprensiva sul movimento e la stabilita’ del corpo umano. Il componente pratico di questo workshop esplora la connettività’ e l’integrazione del corpo.

* e’ richiesto il pagamento per confermare il tuo posto al workshop
** porta il tuo tappetino yoga, se non ce l’hai avvisami 🙂
*** Early bird scade il 1 Settembre 2018


ENGLISH VERSION

The famous Stu Girling of Purple Valley Ashtanga Yoga in Goa, India, finally in Milan for the very first time! 🙂

Stuart is founder of the popular loveyogaanatomy.com website and youtube channel and has been teaching yoga related anatomy for the last 7 years both on teacher trainings and international workshops. He has been practicing yoga for 15 years, has a BSc Hons in Health Studies and for the last 10 years has been offering Therapeutic Bodywork exclusively for yoga practitioners. The underlying philosophy that guides what he shares is that knowledge is of no value unless we can understand how to use it and have use for it. With this in mind the workshops he offers focus on: what makes us individual, how can we understand our limitations and restrictions and how can we avoid injury and create balance. Stuart endeavours to bring as much fun and practical experimentation into every workshop and emphasises the importance of getting to grips with the concepts rather that getting bogged down in the detail.
(traduzione in italiano a breve)

~*~

The workshops introduce anatomical concepts in an accessible and fun way and are very practically based with the intention of allowing students to discover those muscles and areas of the body that are restricting them and demonstrating ways that they can work on those areas with more specificity. The idea is that through greater understanding of how different areas of the body influence the finished postures students or teachers can learn release restricted areas, to sequence more efficiently and also reduce the risk of taking stress into vulnerable areas by moving in the right places. The workshops are suitable for all styles of yoga because rather that looking at specific alignment that might relate to one style or the other I take the route of exploring what might stop you achieving a desired alignment. All level of student is catered for by providing the information in multiple layers and allowing students to practically explore at their own level.

~*~

Program:
Saturday October 20th | 10-1pm | Hips
Looks at the construction of the hip joint and how individuals may differ. The muscles around the joint and how they will influence movements in certain directions. Expanding on these concepts with practical exploration of groups of postures under the headings of Forward folding, hip rotations and hip ab/adductions.

Saturday October 20th | 2-5pm | Shoulders
Here we examine the shoulder girdle and shoulder joint, issues that influence range of motion and the potential for injury. Discussion and practical implementation of shoulder related postures such as, arm balances, down dog, chaturanga, binding, reverse prayer.

Sunday October 21st | 10-1pm | Spine & SI Joint
By understanding the construction of the spine and the surrounding muscles it becomes evident as to the types of movements that it is designed to perform in certain areas as well as the potential mechanism of injury. The groups of postures discussed and explored practically are backbends and twists, and the importance of the integration of movements at other major joints of hips and shoulders.

Sunday October 21st | 2-5pm | Fascia & Biotensegrity
There is lots of interest in the emerging information about fascia and how it might influence the yoga practice. In this workshop we explore what is meant by fascia, what its purpose is and what use we can make of our growing appreciation of fascia. We also look at a proposed model (biotensegrity) for trying to understand how we might incorporate this knowledge into a more comprehensive explanation of human movement and stability. The practical component of this workshop explores connectivity and integrated bodies.

* Payment is required to confirm your spot
** BYOM – Bring Your Own Mat – if you don’t have one please let me know

The Majesty of Being: The Journey into Inner Sanctuaries

Meghan Currie is Back!  

27750835_987707851392944_772234876757187087_n-1

Majesty of Being is our natural state of rich abundant fuller than fullness. Where we find ourselves complete and more than enough, cozy and nourished from within. Nourished not from an idealized state of an idea of perfection, but rather, nourished deeply from the precision of each aspect of our life’s circumstances unfolding as is. This state of rich Being can become lost territory due to all the noise of the daily life, the ideas and belief patterns we may have collected along the way, and accumulations of all of these informations held within the body-mind complex.
This weekend workshop is a journey home. Home to where the breath is. Home to where the symphony of life unfolds note by note, forever never replaying two melodies in the same way twice. Home is here, Now, as is. Come as you are, receive your own riches. The innate wealth upon which we all sit calls us back home.
This weekend will be a dynamic journey of re-establishing intimacy with breath, fluid conscious movement, nourishing reflection, integrative stillness, profound surrender and sweet meditations; all techniques collaborating to orchestrate our consciousness deep through the layers of self. 
“You are loved just for Being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success- none of that matters. No one can take this love away from you, and it will always be here.”-Ram Dass

We are happy to inform you that the subscription to single workshops is now OPEN:

* Friday may 25th from 6 to 8.30 pm – 60€
* Sarurday may 26th from 10 am to 1 pm – 70€
* Sarurday may 26th from 3 to 5.30 pm – 60€
* Sunday may 27th from 10 am to 1 pm – 70€

Many Thanks
Have a nice day
Silvia, Francesca and Christiane

La Grandiosità dell’Essere con Meghan Currie a Milano!
meghancurriemilano@gmail.com

Program
Friday May 25th 2018
Dimensions of Listening | 6-8.30 pm
With every physical action that we take, there is an equal effect that ripples just under the mainstream of what can be heard. We have an ability to pull our focus impossibly tight, like when listening to someone telling a secret in a loud room, to zoom in to amplify the smallest sounds.
Our inner capacity for hearing the usually un-hearable amplifies to new dimensions when we take time to really listen, not only to what can be easy to hear, but also to the most silent aspects of our experience. The most subtle strokes of the breath, the tiniest twinkling of our sensations, the most silent conversations of our inner layers. What can be witnessed with greater clarity is the grand symphony of life, forever playing, pulsating through us each moment, never two notes playing in the same way twice. To experience this through our sensational aspects helps us to re-member our magic. That we too are made of pure mystery, genius, creative force, continuously playing our melody adding to the symphony, simply by existing.
On this journey, we discover the fullest dimensions of our inner world through developing our multidimensional skills of listening. Through breathing techniques, conscious slow fluid movement, stillness to feel, guided meditation and deep rejuvenating surrender, this class will open up awareness for the rest of the weekend to shine through.
Saturday May 26th 2018
Space of Potentiality | 10.00 am – 1pm
When spiritual traditions speak of “opening one’s heart,” they usually mean openingthe front aspect of the heart chakra. The front connects us to the manifest world, what is literally in front of us, and makes us more open in our heart-relations with the manifest world.
The back aspects of our heart chakra are equally as powerful and important as are the front. They are our connection to the un-manifest dimension from which the Manifest world manifests. They open us up to Divine love, trust that the universe has got our back and trust our life’s journey unfolding. The back aspects are where we plug into our own source to receive energy and find our roots in our Being.
The front is our place from which we give to others and the world while the back is our source for receiving.
The Un-Manifest World is often spoken of as the invisible, hidden dimension that lies behind the manifest world. It’s the realm of potentiality, that connects us to our past, our lineage, our ancestors, the collective history of humankind.
“Potentiality is paradoxical. The paradoxical nature of potential is that it includes both what has not yet manifested, and what has already manifested. Our past is not gone; it’s part of our potentiality, because it affects what we bring forward into actuality in so many ways. In this sense, the back of the chakras connects us to our past, our lineage, our ancestors, the collective history of humankind, and so on.” -Jim Kepner
This journey will be an unfolding of the rich aspects of life from the back space of the body, and an exploration of the effects of shifting from primarily front focus (manifest) to back body (potential). Physically we will explore “heart openers” initiated from the support of the back space. Receiving rather than striving, allowing rather than pushing moving from the power of Being rather than doing.
Saturday May 26th 2018
The Deep Steep: Allow Allow Allow | 3-5.30pm
The word steep implies no poking, pushing, prodding, forcing, squeezing, squishing or trying. Like steeping herbs in hot water, no need to add or subtract anything to make the infusion of the medicinal properties of the herb more complete.
When we really stop and drop all efforts and allow ourselves just to be, as we are, without any need to poke, prod, fix, squeeze, try, do, add or subtract- where we find ourselves is in a state of deep steep, a state of simple Being. This is one of the most delicious and powerful skills we can acquire.
We can easily get caught in the idea that we are not enough, that something is missing from our life or our composition and that when we get that one thing everything will be complete. What we forget is that we are already far more than enough. We hold all the medicinal properties we long for, all we need to learn to do is steep in them and receive their medicine.
This nourishing journey is about dropping all doing and allowing ourselves just to Be. Through a mix of Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra, breath work and guided meditation we will travel to the sub conscious and parasympathetic aspects to allow the deepest most profound kind of medicinal infusion.
Allow allow allow.
Sunday May 27th
The Journey | 10.00am – 1pm
The Journey is a never-ending process that deepens with each breath, just as in any relationship to a friend, lover, animal, earth or cosmos. If we can remember to stay awake, remembering the universe has got our back, this immediately Re-members us. To re-member is to allow reconnection to our highest wisdom, potent intuition and majestic Being-ness. Re- membering to wake up to this moment now, and to stay awake, through as much of the journey as possible.
On the journey of our lives, we will not know exactly where we are going, where we will end up, who we will meet or what we will learn along the way. On our journey we have many guides, tools and skills that are collected to help us to courageously stay awake to receive each moment with naked eyes and fresh perceptions, receiving it all anew. The journey of a lifetime is one of surprise after surprise being revealed in order that we discover ourselves to be more powerful, intelligent, magical and amazing than we might have believed ourselves to be.
This unfolding journey will be an integration of all the previous skills learned in each workshop, combined fluidly with delicious intentional sequencing, breath work, guided meditation, deep juicy stillness- all to assist in deep assimilation of all the nutrients, practices, teachings and insights of the weekend.

Bio
Meghan Currie is electric, potent, infectious. She is a creator, molding the light and dark within herself into yoga classes and art which are expansive journeys through inner layers. She works with the powerful healing mechanisms of the body-mind, intuiting higher truths, deeper stories, in the service of revelation.
What to expect
There is a depth, an intensity to the experience of each practice with Meghan. Deliciously composed, intentionally sequenced, beautifully fluid; It is a journey through inner layers to heart and to truth. This kind of journey is revelatory, which means it shows you everything; Whatever there is inside of you that you have avoided or forgotten.
It is a process of unwinding, as though you were a tangled ball of yarn, each day bringing a new section of yarn to be worked, with love and patience and acceptance. Each day you practice a surrendering to the emotions that rear, and an openness to receive the lessons they offer.
Meghan will teach you to tap into your authenticity, your truth. She will show you that at the very heart of your tangled ball of yarn is something very important, some golden thread of wisdom that only you are able to reach, and pluck out, and show to the world.
