Optimising personal practice with Ayurveda
Quantum Yoga is a method of personal practice optimisation using Ayurvedic
assessment tools. The focus is on dynamic asana (posture) – vinyasa
(breath-synchronised movement) and pranayama (breathing exercises).
SUNDAY, 30th August 2015, 2 till 5pm Beginner to Intermediate Level
The workshop will begin with an introduction to Quantum Yoga, i.e. how to gain the ability to ultimately spontaneously create your ideal flowing, dynamic yoga sequences. Each participant will be given a Prakriti (Ayurvedic “nature”) assessment test, with which they will discover how the three doshas (body-mind constitutions) are distributed in their own body-mind complex. Next we will investigate how outer circumstances affect what tendencies manifest, and thereby how our requirements can vary from day to day. Finally, using the quantum method, yogis will learn how to adjust their yoga practice in accordance with changing needs to achieve optimal results. The group will then decide/vote which of the 3 dosha-regulating intermediate sequences to choose to practice: Birds (vata-regulating), Heroes (pitta-regulating), or Lotus Mandala (kapha-regulating). All three are flowing vinyasa sequences, with the emphasis in turn being on grounding, strengthening, stabilizing (vata-regulation), cooling, soothing, balancing (pitta-regulation), or energising, invigorating, and stimulating (kapha-regulation). Each sequence can be accompanied by music composed specifically to support the desired energetic effect. Time permitting, we will end with a Q & A session.
