Om kurset - Sama Vinyasa: Breath Roots Core
5 days of diving deep into the essence of Astanga vinyasa yoga with Chuck Miller. Practice in a way that your body-mind says "Thank you"!
We can uncover hidden gems and master keys of this great practice that enable us to meet the challenges we discover along the way. There are a relatively small number of essential principals, philosophically and practically, that if understood can help inform our focus and directed efforts in a way that is sustainable, fun, healthy and spiritually rewarding.
We can use this great practice to reveal hidden truths that help us in all that we do as humans, individually and collectively. To better see ourselves and thus reveal to us our purpose here on Earth. To help push this wheel of the evolution of consciousness to higher realms of human potential, generation by generation.
In these 5 days we will have time in the mornings to practice, following the traditional Astanga Yoga sequence.
Afternoons we have time for Q&A and more detailed exploration.
Come join us for a fun filled 5 days of the kind of practice that makes your body exclaim “Where have you been all of my life?” The hard work that clearly causes the body to say "Thank you"!
This will be an 'Intensive course of 5 days'. Drop-ins available upon request.
Mandag-fredag, 20-24. maj 2019
Om Chuck Miller
Chuck har praktiseret yoga dedikeret siden 1971. Han mødte K. Pattabhi Jois i 1980 og studerede derefter intensivt med ham i over 18 år, inklusiv ifm. mange lange og familiære møder i USA og næste to års ophold i shalaen i Mysore i Sydindien. Chuck fortsatte sine studier hos Jois med mellemrum indtil dennes død i maj 2009.
Chuck holder af at undervise med fokus på Astanga yogas holistiske natur og præsenterer den som et filosofisk system såvel som en kraftfuld praktisk metode. Chuck er velkendt for hans blide og samtidig velovervejede og virkningsfulde hånd-på justeringer, som både virker beroligende og udfordrende.
Chuck har undervist siden 1988 og var i mere end 16 år Director of Astanga Yoga i det oprindelige Yoga Works i Santa Monica, CA, som han var medejer og -grundlægger af. Han er nu rejsende lærer i Astanga yoga, og hans workshops verden over findes på websitet www.sama-ashtanga.org.
Chuck on Chuck
I have been practicing yoga since 1971. I started with a meditation practice, after I took a free, introductory TM class. The instructor talked about thoughts bubbling up through layers of subconsciousness until they reached the conscious surface, like bubbles in a lake. That set me up. It instantly became my practice to observe that. Shortly after that I discovered Ram Das's book "Be Here Now". The title became my mantra and I was on the yoga path. Then I discovered the yoga philosophy, after reading much of Herman Hess, DT Suzuki, Alan Watts, and others. Later that year I discovered yoga asana.
When I found asana I was blown away that yoga included so many aspects. I felt like I had discovered the operating manual for the human being. I had no teachers, only books and there were not many of those available back then. I found a copy of "Light on Yoga" in 1974 and the introduction blew me away. It was a description of the philosophy of Ashtanga Yoga and an introduction to the teaching of Krishnamacharya. The book became my 'bible' for years.
In 1980, while travelling in Northern California I bumped into a guy who was practicing some other form, from the same lineage of Krishnamacharya, they called it Ashtanga. I wasn't interested as I already had a lot of work to do with the course of study in the back of "Light on Yoga". I had only gotten to "week 30" in his book after 3 years and felt a bit retarded.
One full moon night a few months later I had a vision of a slightly roundish, bald headed Indian man. He was telling me to come down the hill and watch his class... So, next morning I walked down and met Pattabhi Jois, my first teacher in the flesh. He was standing in the doorway of the shala in his dhoti after having finished the first intermediate class of his 2nd or 3rd tour in the US, getting ready for the primary series group to arrive.
He asked me who I was and where I was coming from, who my teacher was... I told him books. He laughed! Said 'how can you learn from books?' He made me watch the first day. There were about 15 or 20 students in the room. It was more athletic than what I was looking for but something about Pattabhi's energy and obvious power and depth of yoga knowledge called me so I came back the next day and happily paid my money.
20 years later I was still dedicated, practicing every day. I had managed to learn the beginning of 5th series and was co-running a big yoga center in Santa Monica, CA.
Anyway, my partner at the time, Maty Ezraty, and I invited workshop leaders from all over the world. Luckily everyone wanted to come to LA and we developed a good reputation. We had Ashtanga teachers, Iyengar teachers and Viniyoga teachers. The best in the world at the time. We included all of it into our practices and it seeped into our teachings.
My idea is if something is true it can hold up to scrutiny. We ought never be afraid to question the teacher or the power structure! So Ashtanga became the crucible to test what was real. It worked. Ashtanga is like a diamond. Clear and strong. It is not weakened by other inputs but rather made stronger!
I like to teach into the essence of the practice and I find if it is true for one practice it is true for others. Bringing various inputs together, expanding the basics and enriching the intelligence and consciousness of the practitioners seems to be what continues to turn me on.
If the motto is 99% practice and 1% theory I like to point out that the one percent is the Center of the Bull's Eye! If you don't know where you are going it is kind of hard to get there. The practice contains the teachings and it can be released better with a little bit of knowledge and wisdom. The sacred texts support us in this and we can find common threads to guide us. Without that 'target,' most if not all, of our efforts are idle.
These ideas are supported by many traditions and by the teachings of all good teachers. Pattabhi Jois and BKS Iyengar, TKV Desikachar included, but many others as well.
Swami Satchitananda's motto was "Paths are many. Truth is One."
I enjoy working in my practice and in my teaching to find my way closer and closer to that inner awareness that reveals the truth.
Chuck on Ashtanga yoga
We start with Samasthitihi. The word sama is the first utterance. And the most important focal point, the directive, of the practice! To unravel ourselves from the distorted views, ideas, beliefs that keep us from seeing the sameness, the oneness, the internal harmony of the universal, and individual. That they are one. This is yoga, and also Ashtanga yoga. Be "abide in our true natural state!" Simple and profound. To be yourself.
This will be our exploration. Using the precise sequence of BreathMovements as taught traditionally, and, not rushing to "Get it done!" Rather, 'unpacking' the sequence, looking deeper into it to experience it in a more intelligent way. To honor the philosophical roots of the practice and to experience philosophy and practice as one thing.
Elever og yogalærere med alle niveauer af erfaring med yoga er velkomne, uanset foretrukken yogastilart. Du vil lære essentielle principper, der er brugbare uanset yogastil, så du er meget velkommen, også hvis du normalt praktiserer andre stilarter end Astanga vinyasa yoga.
