Anneke Sips announces:
Extremely honored I am, to announce that A.G. Mohan and his wife Indra Mohan will visit Amsterdam for the first time!
This 2 day program on August 29 and 30, 2015 is an opportunity to meet + study with a teacher respected internationally as one of rare authenticity and knowledge.
A.G. Mohan was a student from Sri T. Krishnamacharya for 18 years. He is known for his masterful teaching and clarity. (As you may now, Krishnamacharya was the teacher of the teachers: BKS Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Indra Devi, TKV Desikachar and A.G. Mohan).
Mohan is a source of wise guidance for anyone interested in deep understanding of the powerful yogic wisdom. With ease he dispels common misunderstandings on the subject of Yoga.
Indra Mohan is such a sweet and caring woman.
She has been practicing and teaching yoga for more than three decades now. She is one of the few people who received a post-graduate diploma in yoga from Krishnamacharya.
Known for her serene demeanor, she is a source of support and wisdom to her many personal students.
Minding the Mind: ‘Yogic Mindfulness’.
While various forms of Yoga enjoy huge global popularity, its original meaning and purpose has become confusing. The essence of yoga practice is Yogic Mindfulness.
It is about observing the mind and replacing harmful and compulsive thoughts and actions with healthy ones.
Minding the mind enhances mental steadiness and strength. It brings about tranquility and clarity leading to long–term rewards of contentment and peace.
Through this practice we can bring a feeling of lightness and clarity into our body, our senses and our mind.
So, place these dates in your agenda. Check the site regularly – REGISTRY OPENS MAY 21th 2015 (this program may fully booked fast).
// FOLLOW UP IN 2016 //
It will be followed up by the Yogic Mindfulness training intensive. This is a ten day training that will be offered in two parts of five days each. This training intensive will be offered in 2016 in Amsterdam (dates will follow: watch email updates + website).
The Yogic Mindfulness training intensive is designed to guide and inspire you on your yoga practice.
Its primary emphasis is on personal transformation through the application of practical methods for achieving mental steadiness and clarity.
The method for minding our minds was developed centuries ago but it is neither arcane nor mystical. Rather, it is logical, rational and practical. All limbs of Yoga are oriented towards bringing about a calm, clear, light, balanced mode of mind – sattva.
In order to make positive changes in the mind, we must modify the behavior patterns relating to our minds, senses, bodily actions, breath and food. The steps involved include cultivating an awareness and attention (savadhanata) to bring about the state of sattva (samanaskata) and maintain that state (sattvikata). This certainly leads to good health and peace (svasthata) through constant practice.
Therefore, this Yogic Mindfulness program will provide practical and experiential training in:
- Minding your body
- Minding your breath
- Minding your mind and senses
- Minding your speech
- Minding your food
An optimal yoga practice has to be tailored to the individual and so this intensive will also include personalized guidance from the Mohans and mentor support.
If you are interested in these subjects, please read A. G. Mohan’s latest book, Yoga Reminder – Lightened Reflections (2015, www.yogareminder.com) too. This will also be for sale (limited) at the Yoga Therapy Conference on June 3 in Amsterdam.
I am pretty much blown away by gratitude…
Isn’t this very exciting news?
With much love,
