This training is special

Deep practice is the foundation upon which our yoga rests, but unlike other trainings we will still take a closer look at the philosophical and spiritual source of yoga. In this manner we will not only discover the traditional texts of Yoga, but we will also have a closer look into the root tantras of the Kundalini Yoga tradition, these texts are surprisingly unknown today. I am truly excited to share its secrets with all true seekers.

 

In my opinion it is of uttermost importance to ground your way into practice with firm knowledge about the traditions. This knowledge will give every graduate of this school the strength to continue his own journey firmly and safely.

 

This training follows a long tradition of Yoga going back Satyananda and the tantric lineage of Laksmanjoo. This training incorporates both the beauty and power of Hatha Yoga, as well as the energy and passion of Kundalini. The essence of this teaching is simply your own heart – your most important teacher.

Olivetta is a very charming village surrounded by olive trees and a blue rushing river Bevera in a landscape unchanged throughout the generations.

When I first encountered the village and walked down to the stream I admit that I almost cried because it was so incredibly cute. It is treasure. ... The place in which we will practice Yoga is a traditional vaulted ceiling house that is located in the cosy olive trees just below the village. You will just be with your family and friends, and the sound of the river in the quiet evenings. The terraces, the traditional "campo bocce" and ping pong, the peaceful countryside will make you feel free and relaxed. The sea is 15mn away by car.

This ancient house in which we can practice is quite unique because of the vaulted shape of the white ceilings, and the organization of the spaces that will make you feel like you are in a magic labyrinth, with so many rooms, terraces and staircases! In fact please beware of the stairs, do not go up and down running -especially enthusiastic children, if you bring one for yoga ;-) - and mind your head in some cases.

Our practice space will be on one of the large covered terraces were we can enjoy the climate of the Mediterranean and the amazing view.

“Kundalini is awakened during the practice of Yoga by the Apana Prana along with the fire, throbbing, shining brightly in the form of a snake in the internal space. Then the Prana is blown bright by Agni and it goes into the Sushumna.”

 - Yoga Yajnavalkya - 

“Focus the mind upon something that then dissolves. Not grasping anything else other than the dissolving object, the mind comes to rest in one’s Self.
It is similar to the case of a powerful thunder-clap gradually fading: when it dies away, the mind, due to being totally focused on it, comes to rest.”

 - Svabodhodaya mañjarī - 

“The Prana goes out on the exhale; the Apana enters on the inhale, and it forms into a coiled spring of Mantric energy by the power of her will. That Great Goddess Kundalini extends and lengthens by that power. She is the highest place of ‘pilgrimage’, both transcendent and immanent.”

 - Vijnana Bhiarava Tantra -
