Shupadham Yoga by Lisa Clark & Plamen Karagyozov
2.- 4. November, 2012
Location: Sadhana Yoga Studio, Koprska 52, Ljubljana, Slovenia
»This workshop is one of the rare opportunities to experience and learn BMC (Body Mind Centering®) movement principles in the field of yoga. With great joy and happiness Sadhana is hosting Lisa Clark and Plamen Karagyozov, one of the best known BMC and yoga teachers today.« Sneža Vidovič, director of Sadhana Yoga Studio, Ljubljana
The heart, besides nourishing every system, every tissue, and every cell in our body, has a bigger role.The practice of Shupadham Yoga has found that the heart intricately connects, not only to the physical but energetic, spiritual, philosophical and mystical practices. By devoting our mind to our heart we ascend instantly to the most revered levels of yoga & meditation – pure consciousness. In this workshop we will simply get to know our heart more intimately – where it is, what it is made of, how does it work. By doing so, all the mental concepts become a palpable, tactile experience. In this workshop we will learn 12 simple movements – The Heart Salutation. Through it we learn the meaning of existence and what is our role in it. The subtle and the physical become one.
In the Heart Salutation we are following the structures of the heart and circulatory system. Our asanas become filled from within. In this course we will develop skills of sensitivity and inner listening, to live, practice and teach from the perspective that respects the inner space as the foundation of the outer form. The truth discovered here allows us to reclaim our hearts and live to the fullest extent of who we are.
Authors: Lisa Clark
Lisa has spent a life time merging enigmatic yogas with current up to date somatic experience and how the body/mind expresses itself. Lisa bridges the ancient yogic practices to the current knowledge of human body/ our body, and in accordance with the demand of today and tomorrow. Her study of the body systems and human movement led her to the awareness that yoga is not formulaic but a vast experience of moving subtlety, that we are always experiencing, integrating and evolving. Lisa goes beyond yoga on the mat, she implements and unlocks the secret of UNION, making it practical–an embodied life.
