Pranayama and Sanskrit Courses
Starting on June 10th:
• the Pranayama course, taught by Andrea Ferencikova, is designed to deepen your understanding of the major breathing techniques,
• the Sanskrit course, taught by Chaitanya Ray will further your understanding of Sanskrit pronunciation and meaning with particular relevance to the Sutras.
To deepen your yoga practice you need to be aware of the flow of prana in every asana. Breath shines light in to the deepest part of our being and helps us feel the connection within the body right through to the soul.
Explore the flow of breath through Pranayamic techniques, visualisation of breath and the medium of sound. Explore yourself deeper and find the presence of breath.
This course will help you to deepen your asana practice with the awareness of breath. It will also give you tools to establish regular pranayama practice.
Sanskrit For Sutras
Find a deeper connection with the core of your being through spiritual practice of chanting and deepen your understanding of yoga philosophy in this 6 week course focussed on Sanskrit and the Patanjali yoga sutras.
Sanskrit is considered the language of gods in Hindu tradition, and thus all the sacred scriptures and yogic texts are written in Sanskrit. The design of Sanskrit is such that the sounds perfectly express the vibrational essence of that which they describe. In this way, words establish knowledge and understanding directly.
Learn the proper articulation and experience the vibrations of Sanskrit through chanting. Also take a deeper look into the meaning of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. This follows hand in hand with understanding the philosophy behind the path of yoga.
Chaitanya was born, lived and studied in New Delhi, India. Raised in the traditional way of life where slokas are still passed on through oral tradition from generation to generation have given him a firm foundation on his spiritual path. He studied Sanskrit as part of his formal education and continues to spend a lot of time contemplating on the scriptures and yogic philosophy. This gives him a solid understanding and insight of the yogic principles which comes across clearly when he talks about the subject.
Chaitanya has a light but enlightening way of sharing his knowledge. His approach is patient and compassionate, to open up the subject for all who are interested to explore yoga with Sanskrit.
