Learn to sing mantras from a space of joy and natural evolvement at YogaTopia, Herrliberg

 

Price: CHF150.- or CHF135.- if you have already completed a full YTMP course with Claire.

 

 

This Sunday is dedicated to deepen your Mantra Practice and to overcoming inhibitions so that you are able to include mantras with joy and lightness in your yoga classes. This day is for yoga teachers who would like to start singing mantras with their groups but have so far avoided doing so out of fear or lack of confidence. This workshop is also open to anyone interested in deepening her/his mantra practice.

 

Included in the day is a full asana class and pranayama practice.

Spaces are limited and reservations will be taken on a first come first serve basis.

OCTOBER 2020

Saturday 3rd October 2020

09:30 – 13:00 

 

Yoga Immersion with Jan at YogaTopia, Herrliberg

 

Price: CHF70.-

 

Yoga is most often translated as meaning ‘UNION' - union of body, mind and spirit. Many paths can lead us to experience this feeling of connection.

 

In a three and a half hour workshop we will explore five of the practices that can help us achieve this sense of union, with practices as they have been described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and as they have been passed down through the centuries.

 

We will be working with the following practices:

 

Asana Practice - the practice of movement and poses.

Pranayama Practice - the practice of working with the life force (Prana) by way of breathing exercises.

- 15’ break -

Kirtan Practice - the practice of  chanting in which the most often used form is call-and-answer. It is an integral part of Bhakti Yoga or Devotional Yoga.

Mantra Recitation - the practice of reciting a mantra - which can be as simple as one syllable (i.e. OM) or it can be a series of words (often excerpts from classical Vedic texts) that resonate in our body/mind/spirit.

Meditation - there are many ways in which to meditate - the practice is most often done while seated, but can be done standing, lying down, walking, etc…any mundane task can become a meditation (cooking, painting, work related tasks…). As my teacher, Jason Schulman, used to say: “Life becomes a meditation”.

OCTOBER 2020 to FEBRUARY 2021

Yoga Teacher Mentoring Programm

10:00 – 16:00 

 

Dates:   Sunday 25.10.20

              Sunday 22.11.20

              Sunday 24.01.21

              Sunday 07.02.21

Price:     CHF 540.- for the whole programme CHF 150.- for individual days (priority will be given to those who can attend the whole programme)

 

The life of a yoga teacher can sometimes be very lonely and often there is a lack of exchange between us as well as a lack of growing together. Thus the idea came about to offer this 20 hour programme.

 

According to the group’s needs Claire will adapt the content but will definitely include the following:

  • Detailed alignment with functional anatomy for a better understanding of various bodies
  • Hands-on adjustment techniques and practice on various bodies until we feel confident we really know what we’re doing
  • Deeper understanding of certain philosophical aspects of the practice

According to the group's needs we can cover other topics including:  use of precise language in a class/how to create a workshop or retreat/time for personal questions/time to exchange personal visions and aims/how to nourish one’s own spiritual practice and so on.

MAY TO SEPTEMBER 2021

100 hour Hatha Yoga Immersion and Personal Development course

May - September 2021

  • Are you a yoga teacher?
  • Have you just finished a teacher training course and are asking yourself "now what"?
  • Do you want to feel like you own "your yoga practice?"
  • Are you a serious yoga practitioner who has been practicing yoga for several years and would like to experience yoga on a deeper level?
  • How does the philosophy of yoga apply to you in your daily life?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then this might be just the course for you!

 

From January - June 2020 Claire will offer a process-oriented course that will deeply transform you and your understanding of the practices of yoga. The organisation of the course will be on a modular basis located at YogaTopia in Herrliberg. The 5th and final module will take place during a week's retreat in a beautiful location in Italy. The number of participants is limited in order to ensure maximum individual attention and to keep the group as a harmonious whole. 

 

Module 5 - the Retreat

7 day retreat in the beautiful, newly-renovated Boutique Hotel Country House Montessino, Italy. In the distant past on one of the picturesque hills of the Monferrato, the hamlet of Montessino belonged to a large Italian wine-growing family. In 2016 Claudia and Alessandro acquired one of the historic houses (built 1850) and restored it with great passion and care for detail. This is where we will spend our final week of the 100 hour immersion course together. This is truly a place to “lean back and enjoy the pleasures of life in harmony with nature, following the motto Carpe Diem” as they say on their website.
