Yoga Movie Tonight!

 
Tonight i’ll be going to Spazio Oberdan to watch a Yoga movie “Il Respiro degli Dei – Un Viaggio Alla Scoperta dello Yoga Moderno” (The Breath of the Gods – A Journey to the Discovery of Modern Yoga).
 
Showing from the 18 April to the 29 April.
“Il moderno yoga è praticato giornalmente da milioni di persone in tutto il mondo, ma quali sono le sue origini? Il regista Jan Schmidt-Garre si è recato in India e ha incontrato i grandi maestri di questa disciplina per scoprirne la vera essenza. Ne è scaturito Il respiro degli Dei, un documentario in cui, attraverso il racconto delle origini dello yoga moderno, il regista apre una finestra sulla cultura indiana, restituendone un ritratto accurato. Alternando fedeli ricostruzioni a rari materiali d’archivio risalenti agli anni Trenta, Jan Schmidt-Garre mostra come gli insegnamenti di Krishnamacharya si siano evoluti e abbiano portato alla costituzione di diverse scuole.

Dopo aver realizzato diversi film incentrati su arti sceniche quali il teatro, l’opera e la danza al fine d’indagarne il processo artistico, con questo documentario il regista cerca di comprendere come il suono e la forma possano diventare spirituali, concentrandosi su quell’unica disciplina che permette al corpo di fondersi miracolosamente con lo spirito: lo yoga. Per far ciò nel corso del documentario, frutto di cinque anni di lavoro, Jan Schmidt-Garre si cimenta in prima persona con questa disciplina. A muoverlo è la volontà di dimostrare come salire su quel materassino lungo due metri e largo sessanta centimetri significhi entrare in una dimensione parallela, forse l’unica da cui sia possibile osservare la vita dalla giusta prospettiva.”

About ctyoga

Christiane has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. Her yogic journey began in 2000 as a student of Swami Nirmal (now at the Satyananda Centre in London) at the Fitness First gym in Kensal Rise, London. She experienced various teachers in different Fitness Firsts in Central London and around Clapham Junction before changing gyms and meeting Alexa Kho at LA FItness in Piccadilly Circus, London. Christiane attended Alexa's Anusara classes as well as her workshops. In January 2011 she enrolls in a 200hr Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training course with Rebecca Ffrench at YogaLondon. Vinyasa Flow is a modern form of yoga that comes from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and follows Sri K Pattabhi Jois. She quickly become passionate of this discipline and wants to deepen her knowledge; this brings her to meet and attend many workshops with Stewart Gilchrist, Shiva Rea, John Scott, Danny Paradise...all very famous teachers around the world. Being in the presence of such teachers is a significant experience for Christiane, in terms of her yogic journey, personal transformation and growth as well as understanding of yoga. After 11years in London, she moves to Milan to deepen and continue her journey. In Milan she teaches privately (1:1 and group classes) as well as in various yoga and dance centers. Milan is where her love for Ashtanga Vinyasa deepens and grows, bringing her to attend workshops with Lino Miele, Sharath Jois and most recently Kino MacGregor...all original students of Guruji, Sri K Pattabhi Jois. All of this culminates with a long awaited and long overdue trip to India, the birthplace of Yoga. Here Christiane deepens her practice and knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga by doing a 200hr Ashtanga Vinyasa TTC with Yogi Kamal Singh at Tattvaa Yogashala in Rishikesh India. After the monthlong course, her travels take her around India practicing with various other world renown teachers, namely with Sri V. Sheshadri in Mysore and with Rolf and Marci Naujokat in Goa. In 2013 Christiane decides to embark on yet another yoga adventure, this time in Aerial Yoga! The course was divided into two weekends: level I in April and level II in June, after which she becomes a qualified Aerial Yoga teacher.
