Oráriu yoga Janeiru 2019/ January 2019

Lets set some positive intentions for the New Year by using the last day of the old year to reflect, and self-reflect. All morning classes are planned, also January first, but please give a 24 notice if you have the intention to join the class. Friday 4th of January no morning class.

The Tuesday and Wednesday evening classes are cancelled and will be back next week.
The 200hr yoga teacher training has started and a few more classes have been added to the schedule, for the most the schedule is as it was in 2018.

The early morning weekday classes (@Uma Dame and Wednesday at @Ocean View)have as focus the self practice of yoga and lean towards the Mysore style of teaching.

The weekend early morning classes at Ocean View are an extended variation of these classes in Led style.

The Thursday evening 6 p.m. class is Ashtanga vinyasa yoga primary series for anyone that cannot make it to any of the morning classes . It is a Led style though can move towards Mysore style during the coming months.

Interested in practicing Mysore but not sure enough to bring it to class, I m available for private sessions too.

The Saturday 9 a.m. morning class @Ocean View is the best class to (re)start your yoga practice or to experience an all around balanced hatha yoga class.

Sunday 9 a.m. morning class @Ocean View and Tuesday 6.15 p.m. evening class @U.N.D.P. give a complete practice too.

The weekend afternoon special classes are both for beginners and the more experienced practitioner. It is about the interest to move deeper into a certain area of the yoga practice, let it be hips, core strength, focus, meditation and back bend. @Uma iis Tasi.

We thank all our students for your continuous support. With your help we could support various organizations in Timor Leste that work in line with our yoga philosophy/business ethics and who contribute to the development of Timor Leste in a balanced, harmonious way. With your support we could also provide yoga classes to the less financial fortunate students.

Many thanks and wishing you a blissful, peaceful and shining 2019.

Yoga schedule March 2017

Last year March Ahimsa-Ka established Dili Ashthanga Yoga, and it will continue for this year with a similar schedule. The early morning classes either at Ocean View or Dili Wellness both serve as the back bone for all the other yoga classes . Though any class can be followed as a stand alonealone, the complete yoga schedule is fabricated to create a more complete yoga practice and understanding.

The Tuesday and Thursday morning can be used for a Mysore style approach, the weekend early morning classes for a LED style class, the other days are an hybrid of this 2 styles.

The late weekend morning classes and Tuesday lunch class are ideal for a gentle flow with equal focus on strengthening, lengthening, activation and relaxation.

2 new classes on Saturday @ Dili Wellness

The weekend morning classes 6 to 8 a.m. will be at Ocean View

Ayurveda within Yoga
At Dili Wellness upstairs studio
Saturday morning 10.00 to 11.30 a.m.
These yoga classes are the practical follow up of last years ayurveda & yoga classes. Last year sessions where mostly informatif, the current sessions will be yoga asana based from the ayurvedic spectrum. The classes could focus on a particular body constitution or body sheet (Dosha), focussing on balancing all 3 Dosha, or giving different practices to different students to balance their particular body constitution . No prior yoga or ayurvedic experience is necessary and the classes are for all levels. For every new student Ahimsa-Ka will try to determine their individual constitution and imbalances and work towards a balancing yoga session with the help of yoga asana, pranayama and meditation technics. Both sciences, ayurveda and yoga, are used as tools to establish and maintain an equilibrium of a healthy body, steady mind in an ever changing environment.
Beyond asana; moving into the field of breathe and brain
At Dili Wellness upstairs studio
Saturday 15.15 to 16.45 p.m.
The amount of actual poses will be limited in this class, and we will do a fairly amount of sitting. A main focus of yoga is breathe, in particular a deep long breathe. Which is what we will explore and exercise in this class. In an hour and a half we will explore various breathe exercises to deepen and lengthen the breathe, together with some medication and relaxation technics. Which can be all complimentary to your diving or running practice and especially to your general well being.
No prior experience of yoga is necessary, though could be beneficial. As for yoga asana classes try to arrive with an empty stomach .

Yoga workshop Bangkok 17 to 22 Dec

Ahimsaka Satya Yoga Sadhana
Open Yoga Workshop
17- 22 December 2016 @ Mon Yoga Shala, Bangkok

Opening into an inward practice (the self-practice of yoga)

An offering of various classes of yoga for developing your own yoga practice. The separate classes are the “LEGO” pieces of the yoga practice training (YPT) workshop which, when combined together into a workshop, can build a full and (w)holistic practice. Every class is a foundation on it is own, and will explore a part (or parts) of yoga in depth. Doing a workshop will give you broader access to the (self) practice of yoga, while attending one of classes will deepen your understanding. We need both, an overall view and more in-depth insight.

Class Descriptions:
Asthanga Vinyasa primary orientated :
The Ashtanga sequences* are used as a source of inspiration, in a not dogmatic but rather pragmatic style. The primary sequence has focus on both strengthening and lengthening, creating a more open and flexible body that is equally strong and flexible. Developing harmony between the various body parts, and balancing the body with the mind.

Saturday 17 – Thursday 22 December, 07:00-09.00
Ashthanga vinyasa orientated class will move from the guided, classic “western” type of teaching, (Led class where the teacher is guiding the class as a group and showing the poses of the sequence, the variations and modifications) to the more Mysore style approach during the week. The class is to be received in a playful way, trying, exploring, not expecting, and learning what is suitable for you and where you can take yourself. Take it as exploration and with the focus of establishing, or fine-tuning, your own yoga practice.
*The ashtanga practice is definitely a more strenuous practice, and meant to be a purifying practice, the first guide line is always to work within the limits of your own body. Learning to listing to your own body (and breath). From there we explore these limits, taking them as frontiers rather than limitations, and going beyond the set expectations you maybe have of your body and mind. Making Self-expression part of the whole. (Please come to practice with an empty stomach)
Special classes in back bending, vinyasa techniques, hip opening & arm balances:
These classes are more of a workshop style class, which target specific parts of the body and mind and go deeper in some of the hatha/ashtanga yoga technique. Within the class there is more time for practicing the techniques by means of repetition and trial & error. It are also the areas we all have to work on if we want to progress deeper into our yoga practice. It is here that we have to fine tune the balance between strength and flexibility, control and surrender, action and non-action. Elements of these special classes will be brought back into the morning Ashthanga classes to give more opportunity to practice.
Saturday 17 December 2016, 11.00-13.00 & Tuesday 20 December 2016, 11.00-13.00
Back bending; often it is not the spine that is stiff, but tightness in the hips, shoulders, hamstrings or abdomen that is preventing the spine to open up and finding its natural length and space. More over, the most limiting factor could be the mind, back bending can come together with fear and anxiety, or the opposite, no strength and no control. Especially with back bending we can say; “asana are being done by the body, but work on the mind”.
Sunday 18 December 2016, 11.00-13.00 & Wednesday 21 December 2016, 11.00-13.00
Vinyasa technics; brings it all together and without persistent practice we are not able to master it. It is here that we can create an unlimited variety of how to move in and out of poses, to play with both the lunar and solar energy and let them dance together. It has to become natural, and often it will seem magical, it is were we can see Maya (illusion) demonstrated when gravity seems defied. Especially in these classes it is a lot of trial & error, that is how we learn, plus keeping a playful attitude.

Monday 19 December 2016, 09.00-12.00 & Thursday 22 December 2016, 11.00-13.00

Hip opening & arm balances; open hips facilitate smooth Vinyasa, and is often the most frustrating part of our yoga practice. It seems also the storage of long lasting deep embedded “karma” are all in the hips. Lots of asana for opening the hips, and from there in, using the regained mobility to explore the more advanced asana of arm balances and related asana.
Yin-yoga for Ashtangi’s, pratayahara & meditation:
Saturday 17-Thursday 22 December 2016, 16:00-17.30
While in the “asana” during these yin (sense-withdrawal) classes, different facets of the 8th limbs of yoga are being presented. Sense-withdrawal (Sanskrit; pratyahara) is step 5 of the 8 folded path, and brings the “outer” disciplines together with the “inner” disciplines. Foundation of the class is active relaxation of the physical body with as focus to quiet the mind, which is often the most challenging and difficult part of our yoga practice. Various techniques will be explored. During a long hold pose (3 to 5 min.), these different tools are offered and practiced. As we all have different bodies, our minds are as different as well and we need different techniques for different situations. The slow and passive stretching together with the active relaxation helps to recharge the body and mind, and expels the waste products of metabolism* from an intensive (yang) yoga practice efficiently, minimizing soreness the next day. These classes are an important part of the workshop as to understand the yoga practice and are designed to compliment the morning Ashthanga practice. It is here we practice to move to the final step of yoga; “Samadhi”, realizing peace.
*These classes can have a strong cleansing effect on the body. Please drink plenty of water afterwards. Q&A Sessions:

Saturday 17, Monday 19, Wednesday 21 December 2016, 15:00-16:00
Before the pratyahara/yin classes, on 3 days there will be approximately 60 minute Q&A sessions for students who take the class as part of the yoga practice training (TPT) workshop. These classes are meant to tune the workshop to individual needs, and can go from anything yoga related, into Ayurveda, diet, and lifestyle. The key ingredient is how to integrate the yoga practice into your daily life, and bring your life into the sphere of yoga.

Mysore style practice

Mysore style

The Mysore style of yoga teaching is unique to the Ashthanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition designed by Sri K Pattabhi Jois last century. It enables the student to practice (explore) a fixed sequence of yoga asana on her/his on pace by following external as well as internal guidance. External guidance would be a teacher, who assist with mostly hands-on adjustments and fewer verbal instructions, and the inspiration of the fellow students around. Internal guidance would be foremost the breathe, the internal dialogue and body intuition / intelligence.
The student is not blindly following the instructions of the teacher but is activley present with the yoga sequence that is happening. The mind aswell as the body are involved in the sequence. Some days the body isn’t moving at all, other days the mind just seems totally out of it. It is here that observation of both body and mind takes place. Concentration, focus, preparation, calculation and observation are all qualities of the brain that need to be trained too. To remember which pose comes next requires some mental effort, and prevents the brain of zoning out into oblivion. It keeps the brain connected to the present, what is happening here and now. Mysore style of teaching puts more responsibility with the student and allows more space for the internal observation. It honors the diversity of the body, and let the student work with that diversity.
The teacher is not instructing the student with which asana comes next; but allows the student to move through her/his practice and adjusting where necessary. The adjustment are mostly physically and directed directly to the body, to prevent ego involvement. Though the teacher will observe both body and mind, and will work on both to create space, strength and ultimately balance and harmony.
The Mysore style of teaching goes hand in hand with the Ashthanga vinyasa sequences, though the style of teaching could be extended to any kind of sequence. As long as the student and teacher know which sequence is being followed, the Mysore style class could be functioning. Different sequences for different students to honor the diversity of the students. It requires intimate involvement of the teacher which her/his student practice and it asks from the student a commitment to the practice and an independent attitude. As a student you have to follow your inner guidance, using your internal devises to navigate yourself through the practice (and eventually life). The teacher is not there to tell you which pose is next and what to do, though will tell you when you forget. The teacher will guide you through the practice where it is necessary by letting you do your own practice.
The body remembers by repetition, its the mind that’s label’s repetition as boredom. The mind likes to spin, to move in between opposites. When the body remembers stillness, it will ask for more. That is where the asana and vinyasa comes in, the effect of the asana plus the sequence is one of inducing stillness (how stimulating, energizing, aggravating or heating it may seem at first glance ). The body and eventually the mind will long for that stillness. From there chance will happen.
Ahimsaka is offering every weekday the possibility of Mysore style classes from 6 a.m. to 7.45 a.m., at Dili Ashthanga Yoga, hosted at Dili Wellness / The upstairs Studio , Comoro road (opposite Leader, next to Harish and Dili Club). Please contact Ahimsaka first if you like to practice Mysore style.
