This Yin Yoga Weekend Immersion is suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students

Saturday 1 December
Morning Session (11.00am - 2.30pm)
Yin Yoga - The Six Senses

"Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live." - Henry Van Dyke

Many of us are not only afraid of dying!
Many of us are afraid of living and are stressed and overwhelmed from the constant changing state of emotions such as grief, anger, frustration, love, happiness. <
Many of us detest ourselves throughout life and criticise for example, our own bodies (too big, too thin, too tall, too small) covering up our deep-seated fears of being criticised, ridiculed or not being good enough.
A deep-seated feeling within us says "you are not (good) enough".

It appears that we simply have no idea how to live a happy life.

Instead of experiencing the miracle of life - our existence as part of nature, we distract ourselves from it and deal with life the best we can.

At the end of life, most of us are full of regret.

Author, songwriter and international speaker Bronnie Ware wrote a best-selling memoir “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” after countless conversations with dying people with the five main regrets being:
1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me
2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard
3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier

In this Yin Yoga session, we explore the art of living through the six senses with which we perceive life!

We will discuss how to overcome our ignorance of the Queens and Kings (ourselves), how to deal with fear, frustration and anger and how to nourish one’s happiness through mindfulness.

We introduce a powerful tool, a sound which brings us back to the here and now - to live life in the present and without regrets in the future.


Afternoon Session (3.30pm - 6.30pm)
in Yoga - Why Are You Here?

Why Are You Here is posed at the beginning of class to lend more depth and purpose to your yoga practice.
Why Are You Here awakens consciousness, urging you to respond.

But what is the underlying purpose of our yoga practice and our lives? Why are we here?

Theory
In an initial lecture, we delineate the yogic view of the question why we are here and explain what our purpose in this life could be!  

Meditation and Contemplation
During a guided meditation, we will touch on every area of your life as you meditate on the question:
"Why am I here?"

A deeply personal and intense experience!

Yin Yoga Asana Practice
We will conclude the afternoon session with a Yin Yoga asana practice guiding, and integrating the charged mental energy throughout our bodies. Yin Yoga has a mental, emotional, energetic and physical effect. Following this very personal and intensive mediation/contemplation, we can expect response in all areas of our lives.

This asana practice can be challenging on all levels!

Are you ready to encounter your true self?


Sunday 2 December
Morning Session (9.00am - 12.00pm)
Pure Yin Yoga & Meditation Practice

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop (English) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop (English) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA

  • 726 High Street Armadale, VIC, 3143 Australia (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop - Flying Masters, Melbourne (in English)

Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

We will discuss skeletal variation, see for ourselves just how different our bone structures really are and in doing so, discover the shortfall of classic alignment rules. When we understand the importance of respecting our own unique bone structure, we can determine our own individual alignment and consequently discover our own very unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

Theory:
- Skeletal variation
- Function/aesthetics
- Compression and tension
- Analysis of a yoga pose

Practice:
Skeletal variation tests and practical consequences for yang yoga asanas and assists – such as lotus, shoulder stand, pigeon, down dog, warrior, etc.

We will analyse the following asanas in detail:
- Lotus position – external rotation of the hip joint
- Reclining hero –  internal rotation of the hip joint
- Shoulder Stand – neck, shoulder, collarbone and shoulder blade

We will discuss the following issues:
- What restrictions does my individual bone structure impose on me?
- How different is it from other people’s bone structure?
- Will I or my students ever manage to get into the lotus position or achieve a “perfect” pigeon, etc?
- Where are the areas of compression and tension within my individual bone structure? How do I deal with it?
- How can I stretch and stimulate the tissues, when compression is constricting me?
- What is the physical function of a yoga pose?


The hours from this workshop can be used towards Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance for registered teachers.

Yin Yoga - The Rebound Workshop - Flying Masters, Melbourne (in English)

The journey from the gross to the subtle body.

“With each yoga asana practice, we have the privilege of experiencing an inner journey from the gross to the subtle body and through this, insight arises out of the practice. The wonder and healing unfolds during the rebound.” - Markus Giess

Experience and enjoy the journey inwards.

We will stimulate the energy of your body through the mind, the breath, the voice (vibration) and with the body.

In the rebound, we will experience the gentle, undulating to the strong and powerful electrical stimulation of the chakra and meridian systems, which has a powerful effect on the physical, emotional, energetic and mental planes. A potent experience that you will not easily forget.

Practice:
Chakra Pranayama Meditation – Rebound – feel, see, hear

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Frankfurt, GERMANY
Apr

10:00 PM22:00

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Frankfurt, GERMANY

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop at Inside Yoga, Frankfurt
(in German)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

Yin yoga is one of the calmest and most relaxing forms of yoga in the world, consisting of a series of passive poses of the body.

By means of long-held stretches (3–5 minutes) without muscle tension, we focus on the deep connective, fascial and ligamental tissues – stimulating, strengthening and stretching the tissues.

We mobilise the joints, and stimulate and calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress and encouraging regeneration.

During the practice we temporarily slow down the flow of Chi energy, enabling the revitalising energy to accumulate and then flow more freely on conclusion of the practice.

Indeed for days after a yin yoga practice, we’ll feel blissfully relaxed and recharged.

Depending on the length of the workshop, either all or only certain themes of Yin Yoga and Anatomy theory – as listed below – will be discussed.
Depending on the length of the workshop, either all or only a selection of Yin Yoga and Anatomy listed below will be practiced.

Theory:

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Hamburg, GERMANY

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop at Unit Yoga Hamburg
(in German)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

Yin yoga is one of the calmest and most relaxing forms of yoga in the world, consisting of a series of passive poses of the body.

By means of long-held stretches (3–5 minutes) without muscle tension, we focus on the deep connective, fascial and ligamental tissues – stimulating, strengthening and stretching the tissues.

We mobilise the joints, and stimulate and calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress and encouraging regeneration.

During the practice we temporarily slow down the flow of Chi energy, enabling the revitalising energy to accumulate and then flow more freely on conclusion of the practice.

Indeed for days after a yin yoga practice, we’ll feel blissfully relaxed and recharged.

Depending on the length of the workshop, either all or only certain themes of Yin Yoga and Anatomy theory – as listed below – will be discussed.
Depending on the length of the workshop, either all or only a selection of Yin Yoga and Anatomy listed below will be practiced.

Yin Yoga & Skeletal Variations Workshop (English) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND

Yin Yoga & Skeletal Variations Workshop - Yoga Centre for Higher Self, Wellington (in English)

Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

We will discuss skeletal variation, see for ourselves just how different our bone structures really are and in doing so, discover the shortfall of classic alignment rules. When we understand the importance of respecting our own unique bone structure, we can determine our own individual alignment and consequently discover our own very unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

Theory:
- Skeletal variation
- Function/aesthetics
- Compression and tension
- Analysis of a yoga pose

Practice:
Skeletal variation tests and practical consequences for yang yoga asanas and assists – such as lotus, shoulder stand, pigeon, down dog, warrior, etc.

We will analyse the following asanas in detail:
- Lotus position – external rotation of the hip joint
- Reclining hero –  internal rotation of the hip joint
- Shoulder Stand – neck, shoulder, collarbone and shoulder blade

We will discuss the following issues:
- What restrictions does my individual bone structure impose on me?
- How different is it from other people’s bone structure?
- Will I or my students ever manage to get into the lotus position or achieve a “perfect” pigeon, etc?

Markus Giess will join the 45+ international teaching faculty to offer Yin Yoga intensives and workshops over the 4 day event.

Markus' Workshops and classes at the 11th Annual Evolution Asia Yoga Conference.


Thursday 7 June 2018  10.30am - 1.30pm

Yin Therapy: Yin Yoga
You will be taken on a journey to “the other half” of yoga to discover the profound practice of Yin Yoga and its role in Yin Therapy.  We will discuss the unique therapeutic benefits and discover why Yin Yoga is a vital complementary practice for not only yoga teachers/practitioners but for everyone, especially those suffering from chronic back pain and/or stress related illnesses.

In the Yin Yoga asana class, you will experience, that when we truly listen and respect our bodies, it becomes a profoundly holistic and therapeutic practice.


Friday 8 June 2018  2.00pm - 5.00pm

Skeletal Variation: Understanding Individual Alignment
In recent years, the concept of “one alignment for all” has come under scrutiny in the international yoga world. Practitioners and teachers alike are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of dogmatically following this rule.

We will discuss skeletal variation and its relevance to yoga asana practice. You will discover for yourself, how different our bone structures really are and in doing so, realise the shortfall of classic alignment rules. When you understand the importance of respecting your own unique bone structure, you will discover your individual alignment which will liberate your yoga asana practice as well as your students’ – maximising the benefits of the practice and minimising the risk of injury.


Saturday 9 June 2018  10.30am - 12.30pm

Yin Yoga - The Rebound
The Journey from the Gross to the Subtle Body

“With each yoga asana practice, we have the privilege of experiencing an inner journey from the gross to the subtle body and through this, insight arises out of the practice. The wonder and healing unfolds during the rebound.” - Markus Giess

Experience and enjoy the journey inwards.

We will practice chakra pranayama meditation, bija mantras, Yin Yoga asana practice, stimulating the energy of your body through the mind, the breath, the voice (vibration) and with the body. In the rebound that follows the practice, we will experience the gentle and undulating to the strong and powerful stimulation of the chakra and meridian systems, which has a profound effect on the physical, emotional, energetic and mental planes. A potent experience that you will not easily forget.

 

Sunday 10 June 2018  2.30pm - 4.30pm

Yin Yoga - Why Are We Here?
Why Are You Here is posed at the beginning of class to lend more depth and purpose to your yoga practice.
Why Are You Here awakens consciousness, urging you to respond.
But what is the underlying purpose of our yoga practice and our lives? Why are we here?

 We delineate the yogic view of the question why we are here and explain what our purpose in this life could be!  During a guided meditation, we will touch on all areas of your life as you meditate on the question: "Why am I here?"

 In the Yin Yoga asana practice you will guide and integrate the charged mental energy throughout your body. Yin Yoga has a mental, emotional, energetic and physical effect. Following this very personal and intensive mediation/contemplation, you can expect response in all areas of your life. This asana practice can be challenging on all levels!

 Are you ready to encounter your true self?

Understanding individual bone structure means avoiding injuries!

In the second hour, our focus will shift to the anatomy of yoga. Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book release in 2016 “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

The quintessence of the book: "There is no classical alignment, only individual alignment."

Leslie Kaminoff, international yoga anatomy teacher and fellow ambassador for individual alignment says "Asanas have no alignment. People have alignment. There is no correct universal alignment!"

We will discuss skeletal variation, see for ourselves just how different our bone structures really are and in doing so, discover the shortfall of classic alignment rules. When we understand the importance of respecting our own unique bone structure, we can determine our own individual alignment and consequently discover our own very unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

Theory:
Skeletal variation
Function/aesthetics
Compression and tension
Analysis of a yoga pose

Practice:
We’ll analyse the following asanas in detail:
Lotus position        - external rotation of the hip joint
Reclining hero       -  internal rotation of the hip joint


In the second half of the workshop, we will offer a yin yoga asana class for the back to experience the deep affects of the profound practice. 

Yin yoga is one of the calmest and most relaxing forms of yoga in the world, consisting of a series of passive poses of the body.

By means of long-held stretches (3–5 minutes) without muscle tension, we focus on the deep connective, fascial and ligamental tissues – stimulating, strengthening and stretching the tissues.

We mobilise the joints, and stimulate and calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress and encouraging regeneration.

During the practice we temporarily slow down the flow of Chi energy, enabling the revitalising energy to accumulate and then flow more freely on conclusion of the practice.

Indeed for days after a yin yoga practice, we’ll feel blissfully relaxed and recharged.

Practice:
90 - 120 minute Yin yoga class(Paul Grilley style)
Focus: back class

Schedule:
1.30pm - 5.30pm

Fee

Why is Yin Yoga & hip opener classes so often emotional?

What is coming up? How do I deal with it? Is this part of my yoga journey? 
 

Sunday 14.05.2017 - 2.30pm - 4.00pm

Attention: Individual Bone Structure

Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

We will learn about individual bone structure, discover just how different our bone structures really are and how this has great significance in regards to the question of yoga alignment. When we understand the importance of respecting our individual bone structure, we realise the shortfall of classic alignment rules and the importance of finding our own individual alignment and consequently we will discover our own very individual and unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

Are we all the same? You will be surprised to discover how much skeletal variation exists in one room of yogis! You will find up to 80 degree difference in the joints from one person to another.
