About the wokshop
Through inquiring and practical study of the three texts Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras and Gheranda Samhita
Welcome to four days of deeper inquiry in body, mind and spirit. Through studies of three ancient classical and profound spiritual texts and what they have to offer us as yogis, teachers, creative minds, philosophers and pragmatics. Three texts through three master teachers’ learning, experience, wisdom and guidance where we will discuss, practice, inquire, try, assess, share and look into what it means to invite more philosophy into practice and the practice into philosophy. Why?
Well, our experience from practicing living for many years immersed in the yogic texts and techniques shows us how they can increase wisdom and awareness into our living! The guidance in these ancient texts is that in order to grow and evolve we need to yoke the physical with the internal in order to be more truthful, clear and healthy. In this workshop, we invite you to an opportunity where we will enjoy creative inspiration to the fullest.
Immerse yourself with us for your own growth, inspiration and benefit, as well as your peers and students. From the wisdom embedded in tradition, find new ways to interpret the knowledge through different thought schools and as well as through studies and practice.
- Day 1 – Peter Ferko guides you through a day on the topic of Bhagavad Gita —What is real happiness? The practice will contain discussion, asana and meditation
- Day 2 – Wendy Newton guides us through an embodied metaphysical experience of the Yoga Sutras. The Sutras is a primer on quantum living, where inner meets outer and we discover the real power of alignment with WHAT IS. Wendy’s approach involves discussion of the four padas, contemplative practices, journaling, and partner work. You will dive deep into your practice and come out with new perspectives to grow and share.
- Day 3 – Ulrica Norberg guides us through insights and practices from one of Hatha yogas main texts Gheranda Samhita – Practice, practice, practice makes integration happen. Inquiry, asana and Sat Kriyas exploration and dialogue, relative awareness and body sensation introspection.
- Day 4 – Integration, Practice, and Satsang where Peter, Wendy and Ulrica draws from past days experience and elaborate around ways to involve techniques into ones life and teaching.
