Traditional Yoga and the Art of Energy Management
starts Friday 31 march 2017 at 18:30
The ancient philosophy of yoga states that the human body is a sacred temple, in which the divine energy of the universe lies dormant, beyond our normal conscious mind. It also claims that the purpose of asana, pranayama and other yoga techniques is to awaken spiritually by becoming aware of this energy.
The purpose of this workshop to shed light on the ancient way of yoga as “the art of energy management” in both theory and practice. From this perspective, yoga is also a way to transform and evolve spiritually and emotionally. Techniques like asana, mudra, bandha, pranayama and meditation will be taught as well as theory on how to live a yogic life and important observances to follow in order to evolve an existing asana practice into a deeper consciousness-expanding experience.
The way of yoga that Daniel shares is focused on proper energy management through simple physical and mental techniques that can be followed by anyone who desires to do so. Therefore you need not be slim, young or flexible to join this workshop even if it is intended for yoga teachers and aspirants familiar with modern postural yoga. Regardless of where you are in your experience of yoga, the workshop is sure to broaden your perspective and inspire you to dive deeper into yoga as a way of living as well as provide you with techniques to further yourself physically, mentally and spiritually.

Teacher: Daniel Strausser
The spiritual way of Yoga that Daniel shares has become a rare commodity in today's yoga scene. Daniel lived and practiced in the caves of the Himalayas and was initiated into an ancient brotherhood of Yogis by his guru in the early 2000's. Since then, he has studied Yoga, Meditation and Tantra under great masters in India and shares the essence of his research with beginners, yogis and senior yoga teachers throughout the world. For 10 years, he ran a yoga studio in his native Sweden, but since 2011 he lives in Chiang Mai whenever he does not meet his Guru in India or teach internationally. Go to Daniel's page.
