Whirling is a dance and a meditation in movement. The most known reference is the whirling Dervishes. The practice of whirling can offer many and various benefits, it enables us to get in contact with various parts of ourselves – either close to our awareness, or further away from it. Through it we find strength, joy, relaxation, we’re being moved, and we find a sense of liberation – even the possibility of the ecstatic experience.

 

In the workshops of every weekend we’ll have the opportunity to introduce the beginners to whirling, to recap many of the basic technique issues that have already been touched upon, but also to go deeper and cover more issues as well. Each weekend holds its own theme, but we also follow the group’s dynamic and the special needs that are being present each time. Whirling workshops are open and accessible to anyone who wants to join, and no special background or knowledge of the subject is required. Each one of us finds their way to whirl according to their body and their psycho-emotional state.

 

* The Whirling workshop will take place one Saturday per month at Spiti Yoga during the season covering different themes each time. The scheduled meetings of 2020 are: 11/1, 8/2, 21/3, 25/4 and 16/5 at 16.00-21.00. Do you have any questions? Please, ask us!

A series of seminars through which we will get to know, not only theoretically but also practically, the effects that the mudras have on our material, mental and energy bodies. Each seminar includes a selection of mudras, hatha yoga asanas, pranayama, and meditation, all of which form a comprehensive approach to each subject. It is also important to note that the topics are independent of each other and each lesson is not a continuation of the previous one, as well as that at the end of the class, the thematic theory is provided in electronic form.

 

Mudras are a combination of intelligently provided body postures, which can alter mood, status, and perception as they deepen awareness and concentration. Although the hand mudras (hasta) are the most prevalent in yoga, there are also body (kaya) and conscious (citta) mudras. Each type is thought to have a specific effect on the body and mind, enhancing the mental and energy centers, while the practice of mudras during asanas enhances the effect and properties of the posture.

 

No previous experience is required in order to participate in this seminar.

 

* The Mudras, the Energy Transformers seminar consists of six individual 3-hour meetings which will take place at Spiti Yoga during the season. The first one – “Mudras and Yoga practice”, will be held on Sunday, October 20 at 16.00. The second one – “Mudras: enhancing the lack of fear”, will be held on Sunday, December 8 at 11.00. The next four meetings will be held after the Christmas holidays on Sundays 19/1 (Mudras and Self-cure), 16/2 (Mudras and the Element of water), 15/3 (Mudras and the Path to a healing process) και 10/5 (Mudras – Founding the future) at 16.00.

The workshop includes a complete warm-up with specific exercises focused on flexibility and strengthening using the hammock. During the main part of the course we will experiment with acrobatic positions and combinations, thus building an aerial choreography that each one of us will dance in their own rhythm and style!

How can I improve my yoga practice in a playful and safe way, understand and feel my limits, move comfortably and without injuries? Which are the tools that give me an experiential understanding of the energy, effort and use of my body and myself so that I can practice safely, with joy and completeness?

 

A seminar based on the Feldenkrais method offers better quality and greater comfort in our yoga asanas. Through the seminar we pose questions and challenges and we are invited to participate in a game related to our body perception. By observing and exploring basic movements of torsion and extension of our bodies, we learn to move with greater ease, breadth and pleasure, to better use our breathing and to improve our performance.

 

The Feldenkrais method, very compatible with the practice of yoga at certain levels and quite different in others, can extend our view in terms of exercise and awareness. It is a tool and not a competitive practice, it is complementary and open, but at the same time completely structured.

* The Feldenkrais workshop will be held in February 16, 2020.  Do you have any questions? Please, ask us!
