IYA Pranayama Workshop CPD with Christophe Mouze

Saturday 10th September Dublin, Sunday 11th September Galway

“Thus being established in asana and having control (of the body), taking a balanced diet; pranayama should be practiced according to the instructions of the guru.” Hathayogapradipika Chapter 2 Verse 1.

Gurus are not that easy to come across these days but, the IYA are delighted to invite a very experienced yoga teacher and dedicated pranayama practitioner Christophe Mouze to give a Continuous Professional Development day (CPD) on pranayama this September in Dublin and Galway.

We are all aware of the various pranayama practices but if we are honest we do not always practice them that regularly if at all. With this in mind Christophe has suggested that when we start this workshop we pretend to be beginners and he will pace the content depending on the ability of the group. Rather than try and pack all the practices in to one week-end we can take our time to become acquainted again with the aspects of each individual technique at our own pace.

The IYA would envisage Christophe visiting the IYA over time to cover all the practices.

Saturday 10th September 2016, Bloomfield/Quaker Hall, Stocking Lane, Rathfarnham, Dublin.

Sunday 11 September 2016, An Seomra Yoga, 2 Small Crane Sq, Sea Road, Galway
Time: 9.30am – 4 pm
Lunch: Only tea/coffee facilities are available. Christophe recommends keeping lunch very light when practicing pranayama, e.g. bringing a light vegetarian salad or some fruit to share.
Equipment: Mat, blocks, rug and layered clothing.
Cost: €65 IYA members; €70 non-members.
Booking: Aoife Lydon aoifemlydon@gmail.com

IYA Residential
Timetable for the weekend


TimeTable.pdf

FRIDAY EVENING

 

4.30pm onwards Registration

6pm—7pm Evening meal

8pm—9pm Opening session (with some laughter yoga led by Iwona Kaczor)

SATURDAY MORNING

7am—8am

Meditation with Elena Agarkova.

“Smile, breathe and go slowly”. Exploring how the simple act of breathing in and
out can be a genuine source of nourishment, healing and inner peace. Students
will be guided through a series of gentle mindful movements followed by a guided
meditation

Jala Neti & Pranayama with Monique Walsh.

Jala Neti is an ancient yogic cleansing practice. A small neti pot with warm
salted water is used to wash out the nasal passages. This helps to clear the
sinuses, leaving the head clear, aiding concentration and helping to balance the
nervous system. Some breath work and visualisation will follow.

8am—9am Breakfast

9.30am—11.30am YOGA CLASSES

Yoga 1. Yoga Moments with Adrienne Crowe.

With an open mind, we can explore many ways to bring yoga moments into
everyday situations. While data is loading on a computer, take the time to
stretch shoulders and spine; while the kettle is coming to the boil, some
“Desperate Dan” shoulder shrugs; while stuck in traffic, lateral movements of
fingers. Slip from the rollercoaster of life into the eternal presence of
peaceful mind between one breath and another

Yoga 2. A somatic approach to Yoga with Katherine Smits.

The somatic approach allows us to explore and open to the internal sensations
and feelings in our bodies, as the body responds and organises itself during a
series of postures. We work slowly with focus and ease. Through alignment,
relaxation and breath work we experience the myriad of sensations alive in our
bodies and observe deeply what is happening at the present moment.

Yoga 3. Engaging the basics to strengthen your practise with Miriam Brady.

12noon Walking Meditation with Breda Tallon

1 pm Lunch

SATURDAY AFTERNOON

 

2pm—4pm WORKSHOPS

1. The Magic Roller with Gay Blake.

This is one of Dr. Feldenkrais’ inventions “for the achievement of
functional integration”, brilliant in its profound simplicity, and used in his
private lessons. You will be shown how to make your own magic roller which will
become a faithful friend, giving comfort to a tired or aching back without
effort and will lead it to a more upright alignment. Rollers provided.

 

2. Magic Maps & Vision Boards with Caroline Barry.

This workshop is all about taking time out of life to sit and think about
what you might need, how you might like to change direction in your life or what
you want to call towards you. It is a fun workshop where we build vision boards
or magic maps to find our central needs and aspirations.

 

3. Ayurveda & Yoga for daily living with Elena Agarkova.

In this workshop you will learn the basic Principles of Ayurveda, define
your unique constitution (Prakriti dosha) and current imbalances (Vikrutti dosha)
and learn about the art of daily living. You will sip ayurvedic teas, taste the
magical Chyavanprash (herbal jam) and learn secrets to keep you healthy,
balanced and at peace.

4.15pm—5.45pm COMMUNAL WORKSHOP

A sacred dance session led by Therese Aherne

Step into the light with love. Therese will lead a series of gestures and dances
from the Sacred Dance and meditation des Tanzes tradition. Through the dance and
movement we will connect with the divine light that is at our source.

6pm—7pm Evening Meal

8.30pm Social Evening

SUNDAY PROGRAMME

 

As Saturday morning to 12 noon.

12 noon—1pm Closing workshop

1pm. Lunch.
