SEEING AND UNDERSTADING FROM THE BASE

 2+2 day Iyengar yoga workshop

with STEPHANSQIE QUIRK  (NZ, Pune) 

18-19/20-21 NOVEMBER 2017

THE CORE THE SPINE – LOWER BACK

This is more open form of study (than the 6 part therapy training that I have conducted in many centres). It allows participation of experienced students in the initial stage of study observation and investigation. The study of the subject is organised in such a way that the initial 2 days is open to all interested and experienced students. The subject is then linked to the practical adaptations and adjustments that the teacher can bring to assist students confounded by their limitations and adversities, these 2nd two days are for certified Iyengar yoga teachers and teachers in training.

The emphasis is on the teacher learning the asana from the inside out, learning what is the inner feel in tone, intensity, in form, in elemental changes of gravity and the arrangement of each asana and the interaction and changes that result in the entire inner atmosphere.

Subjects covered in different workshops:

Each workshop is an individual module. There is no prior attendance at previous part or workshop is required. The extent of the subject studied is appropriate for the certified teacher who is looking for solutions to the common difficulties and obstacles that many of their students face.

The first 2 days are open to all experienced students, but one needs to be a certified Iyengar yoga teacher to attend all 4 days. It is only parts 7 & 8 that have a required level of Intermediate Junior 2 or above.

  1. The Karmendriyas 1 – Feet, Knees and HipsOn this first excursion into the subject, we will be looking in-depth to this the base understanding. Some of the future topics planned are :
  2. The KarmendriyasArms, shoulders and the upper spine

3. THE CORE THE SPINE – LOWER BACK2017

4. The energetic embodiment 1 – the work of bring “Life”, health of the vital organic body – 2018

5. The energetic embodiment 2 – metabolism, absorbtion, elimination and vital heat – this workshop is working much more closely with problems that the teacher commonly encounters such as diabetes, disturbances in digestion, absorbtion, and elimination.

6. The energetic embodiment 3 – The role of apana vayu. Known in its role to throw the wastes out of the body, but is also responsible for the holding.

7. Acquiring the state of calm neutrality: learning to tune for balance – how to work with students who are struggling with systemic imbalances – the state of inner-pervading tension, Balances of the endocrine and of the nervous systems ***

8. Listening – Seeing – Realising : the senses of perception and the Overseer of them, the mind ***

Day 1 – open to experienced Students (Sirsasana for 5-8 minutes, Salamba Sarvangasana and variations for 5-10 minutes), Iyengar yoga teachers and teacher trainees. The first 3 classes are setting up the topic/subject that will lead into the work for the teachers on the following days.


Day 2
– as above in the morning and a session. In the afternoon we will begin the very important aspect of observation.


Day 3
– is about adjustments and adaptations of the students that attend classes (teachers and trainees only from here). Adjustments can be carried out for a variety of reasons, to educate the student, to correct the student, to enable the pose to work more directly for the student.


Day 4
– Adjustments and adaptations continued and leading onto the therapy application according to theme or subject being looked at over all four days.

This way general students can be accommodated for all of days 1 & 2, then teachers and trainees for the rest – BUT – the teachers attending days 3 & 4 must have done days 1 & 2.”

Interjú Stephanie Quirk-kel

Az alábbi interjút az új-zélandi születésű, neves Iyengar jóga oktatóval Lorna Walker készítette néhány évvel ezelőtt és a londoni Iyengar Institute Maida Vale Dipika című kiadványában jelent meg. A fordítás Répássy Erika munkája.

Mikor és miért kezdtél jógázni?

1987-ben Sydneyben. Változást kerestem. Otthagytam egy elképesztően fárasztó zsákutca munkát és kerestem valamit, ami egy más irányba terelne. Nem gondoltam, hogy egy valami változást idézne elő; inkább számtalan kisebb változást kellett létrehoznom az életem során. Egy barátom vett rá, hogy elmenjek egy jóga órára. Kissé kételkedtem, de beleugrottam.

Miért költöztél Púnéba?

Nem igazán Púnéról van szó, inkább a jógához költöztem közelebb. Ha az Iyengar család Szibériában tanított volna, akkor odamentem volna. Amikor először kérdeztem az Iyengar családot, hogy eltölthetnék-e egy kicsit hosszabb időt náluk, akkor úgy gondoltam, 1-2 év igazán hosszú idő lesz. De ennél már sokkal hosszabb ideje vagyok itt. Igazán nincs másik hely, amit otthonnak nevezhetnék, ez az, de sosem volt az, hogy „azt hiszem én Púnéban fogok élni”. A jóga volt az, ami idehozott és ami itt tart.

Leginkább a jóga miatt maradsz Indiában?

Igen, a jóga miatt maradok. Igazából nem ismerem nagyon Púnét, merthogy nagyon kicsi az a szféra, amiben az életem zajlik: az otthonom és az Intézet.

A nővéri végzettséged mellett művészetet és Ájurvédát is tanultál. Ezek hogy hatnak a tanításodra?

Igen, a púne-i helyi főiskolán tanultam Ájurvédát ez azt jelentette, hogy kaptam diákvízumot és így nem kellett 6 havonta elhagyni az országot és olyasvalamit is tanulhattam, ami kapcsolódik a jógához, mind az Ájurvéda, mind pedig a jóga az indiai számkhja filozófiát veszi alapul a természet megértéséhez. Ez azt is jelentette, hogy a megértésemet ez is szolgálta, több tanulmányt biztosított az elméleti háttér tekintetében. Valójában mégis a művészeti iskola befolyása az, ami a leghasznosabbnak és leghatásosabbnak bizonyult a tanításomban. A látáson, megfigyelésen, látáson, megfigyelésen való hangsúly.

Amikor utazol, akkor hatalmas mennyiségű országban és városban jársz. Hogy szoksz hozzá a különböző helyekhez és kultúrákhoz?

Ahova tanítás céljából utazom, Guruji metódusának univerzális nyelvezete azonnal „hazarepít”, azonos nyelv, a metódusban való azonos megértés, még akkor is, ha tolmácsra van szükség. Az utazás „jetleg” aspektusát tekintve hozzá tudok szokni egyfajta furcsa agy megváltozott tudati állapothoz.

Amikor Púnában vagy, sokat gyakorolsz Guruji mellett. Mennyit tanulsz abból, hogy figyeled őt?

Sosem tudom, hogy mennyit tanultam, csak sokkal később, visszatekintve, s ahogy visszanézek, észreveszem, hogy ez egy bizonyos meglátás, megértés; inkább a gyakorlás egyfajta megközelítése, ami benne lakozik. Nem annyira pontok gyűjteménye, mind inkább a gyakorlás minőségi megközelítése.

Számtalan Guruji általi igazítás vagy instrukció maradhatott meg az emlékezetedben. Melyik az, amelyik ebből kiemelkedik és miért?

Igen, el tudom képzelni, hogy az olvasók azt gondolják, hogy a lenyűgöző „pontok” ezreit lehet megtanulni Gurujihoz közel lévén, de ami nekem fontosabb, az nem a tanítási pontjai, hanem az életének és gyakorlásának az intenzitása az, ami belém ivódik, ami előjön. Amikor egy ászana kapcsán „pontokat” ad, ezek nem kumulatív pontok, ez nem az, hogy ha ezt a pontot is gyakorlod az ászanában, akkor az „jobb” lesz. Guruji irányításának hatása arra vesz rá, hogy teljes mértékben tapasztald meg saját magadat belülről.
