Time Out 2

The first month of Time Out events was really nice. We listened to the sounds of Tibetan bowls, we experienced the hidden magic of old Slovenian folk songs and we learned about ancient yogic cleansing techniques.
The upcoming events are also aimed at promoting a wider and deeper knowledge of yoga and Indian culture. 

The first in the series will be a workshop on yoga nidra, a practice with ancient tantric roots, which is now used as a form of a deep relaxation with huge benefits for our bodies and minds. It's also referred to as a 'dynamic sleep' or 'dreaming awake' since it brings you to the borderlines of sleep and wakefulness where you experience the prolonged activity of alpha brain waves. Yoga nidra is recommended to people suffering from psychosomatic diseases such as insomnia, back problems, diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases, asthma, ulcer, migraine, cancer, digestive and skin disorders... It's also suited for people trying to improve their attitude towards life, their behavior, habits, memory, concentration and awakening their full spiritual potentials. This workshop will be conducted by me.

The second workshop will be guided meditation with the support of live Indian music. The meditation will be conducted by yoga teacher Ana Colja.  I will post more information about this event soon.

The third Time Out of this month will be about dancing. I'm really happy to announce that my favorite dance teacher Sylvia Valentine, who inspired me deeply, will be coming to give a workshop in Yoga studia Sadhana. She is a Bharatanatyam dancer and a truly amazing artist and I have to say attending her dance lessons were the highlight of this year for me. At the workshop Sylvia Valentine will teach us bhangra, a folk dance from Punjab, and a Bollywood choreography with elements of Rajastani folk dance and with lots of mudras. I can't wait!

The last event of this month will be a lecture on Bhagavadgita. Our guest will be Tina Košir Mazi, who is herself a yoga teacher and Satyananda yoga practitioner. She is also involved with yoga philosophy on the academic level: Bhagavadgita was her major at university and kashmiri saivism is now the theme of her PGD studies.
Bhagavadgita itself is the jewel of Indian philosophy and literature. It's a part of the great epic Mahabharata; it starts, when Arjun, one of the warriors in the great battle on the fields of Kurukshetra, decides he doesn't want to fight. "I don't care about this kingdom and power, if I have to kill my relatives just to get them." But his charioteer is no other than Hindu god Krishna, who explains to him why he has to fight. He also explains about karma, dharma, different types of yoga and more... An always inspiring and interesting subject, I'm really grateful for the chance to hear more about it.

Anyway, everybody is welcome to these events. We meet up every Thursday at 20.00 at Yoga Studio Sadhana!
