FRIDAY THE 23RD OF OCTOBER

6:30-8PM

Yoga History and it’s Relation to Yogic Practices

In this talk Gregor will explain the yogic concept of the four yugas (wold ages) and it’s relation to the concept of ashrama, i.e. the four stages of life. By studying these ancient Vedic teachings we learn how history has shaped the collective psyche of humanity and how this applies to the psychology of the individual. From this understanding develops complete confidence about how the yogic process will play out over the entire span of our lives. Gregor will show how different yogic methods and limbs play different roles in different periods and stages of our lives and that we need to adapt and change our practices as we grow and mature.

24TH/ 25th OF OCTOBER

9:30AM-12PM | Asana Practice

Guided Asana class

Here Gregor will analyse the many intricate anatomical details of the majority of the postures of the Primary Series, while maintaining as much pace as possible. The focus will be on breaking down the various phases of entering and exiting the postures into their constituents. Performing postures safely while understanding which anatomical actions will get us deep into the asanas will prevent unnecessary energy expenditure. Through inducing precision this format also achieves that conditioning and emotions lodged in bodily tissue are released, preparing us for the higher limbs of pranayama and meditation. Whenever necessary Gregor will slow down the classes to workshop individual postures in great detail.

24th/ 25TH OF OCTOBER

1:30pm-3:30PM | Yoga Sutra

Yoga Sutra

“The Yoga Sutra entered my life 39 years ago and since then it’s been a constant companion. It took me a long time to completely understand it but once this had happened it ended all confusion I had about yoga. Understanding the Sutra gave me complete confidence in how to apply my practices diligently and that I would succeed in due time. The Sutra changed yoga for me from a faith and hope-based system to a science with predictable and repeatable outcomes. It is exactly this confidence and certainty that I would like to pass on to my students. The workshop will be interactive, with ample time for participants to ask questions.” -GREGOR MAEHLE

The Yoga Sutra is the operating manual of yoga. It is only when we understand the why’s and how’s of yoga that we will practice with confidence and beyond doubt. In this class we will look at selected stanzas in Sanskrit and a detailed commentary based on Gregor’s four decades of practice and study will be given. The commentary will retain the depth of the ancient treatises but will be fun, relatable and applicable to modern urban life.

Gregor and Monica are an excellent combination of deep knowledge of yoga, both the physical aspect of asana and anatomy and especially the philosophy and history. The experience was very rewarding for me! I would come back to them for more! Very authentic and loving teachers, they are the true embodiment of what they teach!
