Workshops Ilya Zhuravlev at Marino Yoga Fest 2020:
- «Earth, sky, space»
A complete training sequence of hatha yoga based on the techniques of Vinyasa Krama yoga by Sri T. Krishnamacharya, yoga by D. Brahmachari and other Indian disciplines, in which there will be asanas designed to main areas of mobility. In symbolic terms, we consider the physical body as an element of the Earth (Prithvi). This is followed by a series of traditional pranayamas leading to a state of dhyana (meditation). We symbolically associate work with breathing with Sky or Air (Vayu), and in conclusion, the traditional (for Indian yoga ashrams) meditation “chidakasha-dharana” which is the observation of the space of our mind. This is the Space (Akasha) that extends within us. Duration – 2 hours.
- «Energy and consciousness».
The workshop is a sequence of traditional yoga techniques aimed at strengthening and conciliation, as well as “centering” of internal energy, prana, which directs to sushumna nadi – central and the most important energy channel. This is a combination of the methods of sukshma vyayam, cyclic meditation, “asanas-mudra” (those are asanas that last longer and are combined with pranayama), bandhas (muscle “locks”) and kumbhaks (holding the breath), visualization (dharanas with internal objects) and meditation (dhyana ) as the final state of practice. As a result, we obtain not only an energetic “renewal”, but also a state of a calm, serene mind. Duration 2 hours.
- Yoga Nidra with trance technique “5 levels of consciousness”.
Here we use the analogy of the famous Matryoshka doll “one inside the other” concerning different levels of our consciousness, which we can observe and, if needed, “clear” from unnecessary tension and negative thoughts and emotions. Like sorting out Matryoshka dolls, in the process of nidra we “sort out ” the layers of our consciousness from the facial and vain to the deep, up to our “higher Self,” the grain of inner peace and light. Lecture and practice. Find more details about the practice on Ilya`s website.
