Workshop with Whit Hornsberger (in English)
Sat. 28.03.2020, 12:30 — 15:30 h
The traditional movement and sequence methodology of Vinyasa Krama honours the breath as our ultimate teacher and source of wisdom. The teachings, as passed down by the father of modern yoga, Sri T. Krishnamacharya, remind us that this ancient tradition is one of slowing down, quieting the mind and cultivating the art of concentration.
As the speed of global culture quickens, the momentum of contemporary society can overwhelm and influence all aspects of our lives, including the way in which we engage on the mat. Driven by the unrelenting tyranny of time to accomplish more and get to the next moment, our grounding yoga practice can instead fragment the mind through rapid, momentum induced transitions, negating our ability to coalesce the mind and body through the harness of the breath.
Through the application of mindful, breath-coordinated movements, powerfully deliberate transitions (vinyasas) and intelligent sequencing (krama), Vinyasa Krama, the art of slowing down offers refuge from the quickening pace of life, integrating the mind and body into unparalleled states of transformative union.
This class will explore the history, methodology and practice of Vinyasa Krama and is suitable for all levels of practitioner.
Whit Hornsberger (Vancouver, Canada) is a student and teacher of the wisdom traditions of Classical Yoga and Theravada Buddhism.
A former athlete, Whit found the path as a result of a career ending knee injury and the subsequent emotional and mental suffering inherent in losing one’s (supposed) self-identity and self-worth. His daily practice and teaching methods stem from the traditional practices of Vinyasa Krama (Krishnamacharya) and Buddhist meditation (Mahasi Sayadaw). A passionate advocate of traditional teachings, Whit expounds the ancient wisdom of these lineages in a relevant manner, making them readily accessible to students at every stage of the path.
A lover of surf, travel and nature, Whit teaches internationally, offering classes, international workshops, retreats and trainings.
