Join master teacher Mark Whitwell for either of these two uniqe one-week immersions in genuine Yoga direct from "the teacher of the teachers," Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. Learn how to step outside yoga gymnastics and make your practice entirely your own: pleasurable, powerful, safe, and efficient. Craft a personal practice that you can actually do, and carry this forwards into your life.
In a world full of commodified "yoga" and the proliferation of brands and styles, how do we make sure we keep the heart in Yoga? How do we practice and teach in ways that respect and recognize each individual as the unique expression of life that they are? What are the practical tools that can help us feel our own intrinsic joy, freedom, and authority, and share this?
Investigate these questions in either of these week-long immersions with a Master Teacher. In the exquisite surroundings of Yoga Barn, located in the heart of Ubud, Bali, we will explore how Yoga is not just a physical workout, a collection of information, or a "spiritual" workout towards a future, better version of ourselves. It is each person's direct participation in the nurturing force of reality, as it is appearing as you and everything else.
These trainings are not in any particular "style" of Yoga: It is the essential principles of the Great Tradition, as brought forth from the Indian tradition by the "teacher of the teachers," Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, and made uniquely relevant to us as modern people by Mark. You will therefore be able to apply these principles to any style or level of Yoga you wish to practice or teach, to make all Yoga individualized, effective, enjoyable, and safe. All bodies and backgrounds are welcome: however please note the September workshop is for existing teachers.
Daily schedule: 9am-5pm
This training is suitable for those new to yoga and those wanting to make their existing practice pleasurable again. In a world of commodified and exaggerated yoga, we need to cut through the noise and commercialism and come back to the heart of yoga: our relationship with body, breath, and other people.
Advanced yoga here is something suitable for everyone: rather than difficult asana, it refers to making your practice powerful, efficient and safe, using the principles from the great tradition. It is easy and it is for everyone. If you can breathe, you can do yoga!
Please note daily lunch is NOT included — however we will have a space where we can all be together during the midday break. and there are many many cheap and delicious options nearby. Ubud is the home of yogic eating!
