Pranayama, meditation & yoga Nidra

by Moena de Jong

Saturday 24/2, 18.00 – 20.00

Sunday 25/2, 18.00 – 20.00

In the west the focus of the Yoga practise is most dominant on Asana while Pranayama is the engine of our Sadhana (spiritual practice). Not only can it pretend injuries, it makes our Yoga practise physically lighter and uplifting.

On a very physical level the internal organs, digestive, respiratory, circulatory and all internal systems of the body are greatly affected by Pranayama. There are nerves that run through the diaphragm, and when stimulated by Pranayama, they allow us to directly influence the parasympathetic nervous system (switching from fight-and-flight to rest-and-digest) directly promoting self-healing and recovery.

When we practise Pranayama regularly we are actively maintaining our level of health.  Underlying this, is the energetic aspect, by learning to control the breath you are learning to extend the prana or life force, this is what pranayama is all about. Our nervous system, endocrine system, etc, are all affected by prana, and pranayama is a key aspect to sustaining health. We can also practise pranayama to overcome a karmic element.

“It is a practice of longevity - sustainable living through pranayama.”

 
Workshop Day1: Saturday 24/2, 18.00 – 20.00
Pranayama: The Art of Breath Control

Pranayama is the bridge between the outer and inner sensory responses - it takes us inwards, and the mudras and bandhas deepen the effect of the pranayama. These techniques induce pratyahara (sensory withdrawal) and lead us through from outer awareness to inner awareness, as the mind becomes more and more focused. This results in dharana (concentration).

Throughout this understanding we will be able to correct breathing irregularities, such as uneven breathing, chest and shallow breathing and we will gain knowledge on how to help students who have respiratory problems due to asthma, cardiac disease and obesity.

In this module :

  • We go deeper into (Advanced) breathing techniques, Bandha’s & Mudra’s
  • We will study the deeper, subtle aspect of the Chakra’s and how to use their energy to enhance our spiritual practice.

Workshop Day2: Sunday 25/2, 18.00 – 20.00
Meditation & Yoga Nidra: The Art of Relaxation

The awakening and rise of Kundalini energy and observation of the subtle sheets of the body is part of our practise: Meditation & Yoga Nidra (or Yogic sleep practise) is a technique to awaken divine faculties.

Yoga Nidra means sleep with a trace of awareness. It’s a state of mind between wakefulness and dream.

During the practise of meditation our consciousness travels from one layer of consciousness to another.

During this module we will explore our consciousness through:

  • Process of Pratyahara (withdrawing of senses)
  • Rotation of consciousness (focus on various body parts in a systematic order)
  • Awareness of breath
  • Observation of feelings and sensations
  • Visualisation
 

We will gain knowledge about our sleep, dreams, controlling centres of the brain and discover the benefits for students with psychosomatic diseases, cardiovasculair diseases and stress.

  

The participation fee is 20 for one day and 30 for two.
Pre-booking and prepayment are required due to limited positions.
