Twist into Your Center. Spiritual Journey of Yoga. Workshop with Kino MacGregor
This is a one-of-the-kind opportunity to practice yoga with the world renown Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, Kino MacGregor, in POLAND!
Kino’s spiritual journey of yoga is encouraging, her style unique and playful. Having learned directly from the Indian masters, she is able to adapt the traditional yoga philosophy for the Western practitioner in a motivating and amusing way.
She is truly an inspiration and an excellent example of living yoga. I am so honoured to host Kino and organize this event with her in the capital of Poland, Warsaw.
The workshop program is aimed to deepen the spiritual aspect of yoga, gain strength and learn the tips for the lift ups, headstands, and twists. All the sessions are conducted by Kino in an amazingly accessible, and fun way.
During the weekend event, 6 different workshops will be conducted:
Solar Fire: The Sun Salutations
Known in Sanskrit as the Surya Namaskara, the Sun Salutations awaken the deep fire of purification that cleanses the body and clears the mind. Delve into a detail oriented breakdown of the Sun Salutations and understand these simple movements as the basis for deep backbends, powerful handstands and easy hip opening. Sri K. Pattabhi Jois always said that the entire yoga practice is contained within the format of the Sun Salutations. Join this workshop and understand how a conscious practice of the Sun Salutations will unlock the keys to a graceful, effortless practice.
Ashtanga Magic (Breathe, Posture, Gaze)
Delve into the secrets of the Ashtanga Yoga lineage, known as the Tristana method, and discover the magic of breath (pranayama), posture (asana) and focal point (dristhi). Break down the energetic alignment of key postures in the Ashtanga Yoga method and build the foundation for a meditative, awareness based practice. Starting off with the Sun Salutations and progressing through the Standing Postures, Kino guides you into a devotional practice that mergers the physical and subtle bodies and honors tradition while embodying the present.
Twist Into Your Center
Deep twisting increases energy levels, cleanses the body and opens the mind to new levels of awareness. Find the perfect balance between activation and release in this new approach to twisting. Learn healthy technique to increase flexibility in your spine and shoulders while creating solid foundation in your pelvis. Use the core strength of the body to support the twisting and extension. You will have fun with many levels of twists and even use the twisting position to enter some challenging arm balances!
The Equanimous Mind. Meditation Session
Dive down into the inner world equipped with a calm, steady mind and a courageous heart. Train the mind to be single-pointed in the Eka-Tattva state and cultivate a state of equanimity. A strong mind is vital tool on the path of living the yogi’s life. Join this session and continue your spiritual journey.
Ashtanga Full Primary Series
Surrender to the traditional Astanga Yoga method with careful emphasis on the traditional vinyasa method and have fun along the journey. Experience the integrity and purity of the Astanga Yoga practice and be prepared to sweat.
The powerful strength-based asanas and transitions of the yoga practice are often intimidating and difficult to practice. Join this session to tap into your natural strength as Kino shares the techniques and tips that she uses to develop and build strength. You will leave this session with a methodological approach to strength that will transform your practice. True strength is rooted in the spiritual lessons of the practice and moves far beyond brute force. Explore everything from lift-ups to inversions to arm balances from a radically new perspective and leave with real tools to apply in your practice and in your life.
