We will explore how to prepare and practice advanced asanas.
To attend this workshop you should be able to do Udvha Dhanurasana and Sirsasana, with or without the wall.
It takes trust, patience, vulnerability and a willingness to let go and find a soft touch.
Advanced poses demand strenght, flexibility and will power.
To do advanced poses takes many years of practice, here we will develop step by step practices to reach one day the final pose.
Once the final pose is reached we start to develop endurance and patience, exploring the asana in its inner most intensity, finding the subtleness and softness.
The performance of an asana includes going into, staying and coming out of the asana.

A workshop is an opportunity to explore your practice in a deeper way. We offer programs that allow you to experience the art and science of yoga in a more refined way.

A workshop is usually 2-3 hours. The topics are vast since the science of yoga is vast. We do our best to offer monthly workshops that offer our students insightful and enriching opportunities to learn more.

We offer a variety of workshops as well a regular Advancing asana workshop and Yogic sight seeing.

Below is a short description of these signature programs offered by the Pranamaya team.

Yogic sight seeing

This Yogi Day is an introduction to the rich culture of Nepal. It is an opportunity to practice yoga and meditation in some of the most sacred places in the country. The day begins with an early morning class. Followed by a mediation and contemplation on the significance of the power place we will visit. The sacred spaces, monuments and temples we visit are all representations of the sacredness of life. Most of these places are representations and symbols on the path to enlightenment. These power places are sources of inspiration and support as one moves along the path of awakening. Just as the human body is regarded as a sacred space to open and explore in yoga practice, so to are the ancient sacred sites that have been blessed by mystics, and spiritual seekers. Nepal has a rich legacy of spiritualty and wonder. We invite you to explore your own inner nature through yoga and be inspired by the outer expressions of enlightenment.

Spirituality is the centrepiece of life in Nepal. The country is home to some of the most sacred Buddhist and Hindu sites in the world; Swayambhu, Pashupatinath, and Bounath just to name a few. Life is renewed, revitalized and reborn every day in these power places. We invite you to touch this beauty.

In Yoga we look towards the human body as a sacred manifestation of the elements. Like the human body that is charged with divine qualities, certain spaces within the external landscapes have been worshiped for centuries, praised and regarded as borders between the ordinary and the divine. Connecting to your inner sacred landscape is the path of yoga.

Our Yogic sight seeing days are about touching this essence and connecting to the inherit power places in the Kathamndu valley. It’s an opportunity for spiritual revitalisation. It’s an invitation to connect with the sacred and integrate your understating of Yoga.

Nepal is a country that has been a hub for spiritual seekers for centuries, a place that has been called the “abode of the gods” with a landscape that projects into the sky connecting the earthly affairs of daily life with the divine celestial abodes. The Himalayas surround the city of Kathmandu and project an aura of divinity and power. This dramatic landscape encompasses a feeling of depth, serenity and power.

If you have practiced yoga and felt an inner calling, a wish to understand and discover more this may be a great opportunity for you. Yoga is an experience of the interconnected nature of life.

The richness of an environment has the powerful potential to reveal the union of life and practice. A very profound version of Yoga! come and witness the unfolding for yourself
