At KALAA Yoga Berlin we offer monthly workshops, open and suitable for all levels. Every month we choose a specific workshop theme or asana focus to deepen and further develop the individual yoga practice. Next to intense asana input, our workshops contain plenty of philosophical stimulation, theoretical information and creative inspiration.
On a regular base we invite international guest teachers who enrich the range of our yoga workshops.
Yoga Workshops at KALAA Yoga Berlin
OLD YEAR – NEW YEAR
A yoga retreat at the turn of the year with Janine and Stefanie
Contemplating, recollecting and refreshing
December 30th and 31st at KALAA Yoga
Sunday, December 30th
10.00 am – 12.30 pm: Sun-Session
After the holidays this session is designed to get us back into movement with a long warm up sequence and a playful set of sun salutations. Building on with a buoyant flow of movement and a dynamic arrangement of Pranayama we will charge ourselves and arouse the dormant energies of body and breath. We will practice a variety of backbending and armbalancing postures to get in touch with the core of the body and to anker the mind lightheartedly.
The yoga practice is designed to awaken the heating quality of Tapas to literally burn what doesn’t serve us and to clear and cleanse from inside to outside (Saucha). This supports the transformation of our body and mind.
By the end of the session we will come to deep release and silence, receiving, to have our energy restored.
Sunday, December 30th
2.00 pm – 4.30 pm: Moon-Session
This session is based on the principles of Yin Yoga and stimulates the steady and peaceful qualities of body and mind.
The seated or reclined postures are held for a longer time and allow us to find the space to arrive and settle in. Often we feel exhausted just because our mind keeps travelling back and forth, running in circles and doesn’t come to rest.
By pure observation we can learn that it is not necessary to change or controle all the time, we can practice equanimity and experience something different.
The sequence gently works on the inner structures of the body and stimulates the systems inherent relaxation response.
Surrendering to the ground, it’s gravity and the situation allows us to let go of tension and to deepen our relation to the physical, mental and spiritual plane. This process will naturally take us to concentration and meditation, which well be guided and explained.
Monday, December 31st
10.00am – 1.00 pm: End of the year and new beginning
On this day the yoga practice can remind us that life is a cycle based on many daily, monthly and yearly cycles.
We will pick up familiar and new patterns of the practice: Physical and breathing practice, energetic seals for hands and body (Mudra and Bandha), exploring movement, silence and the sound of Mantra.
The principles of transition, change and new perspectives are embodied by all inverted postures. We will approach this practices free in space and with support of a partner or the wall to build some trust and courage for the year ahead.
The idea of ritual and conscious action will be the red thread for this session and we can use it for this day and all other days aswell.
