Bring your practice and/or teachings to the next level.
We are very delighted to welcome Petri for the third time in our studio! Petri is internationally known and respected as one of Ashtanga Yoga's new generation of teachers. He is a devoted student of his Guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, who has authorized Petri to teach, and Petri carefully passes on his Guru's exact teachings.
Discover the beauty and grace of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and explore the powerful but subtle energy healing and deep adjustments techniques as a beautiful healing tool (yoga therapy) to understand more about your own body and mind and especially for those who have the ambition to teach or bring their teaching skills to a whole different level!
Energy Healing - opening the senses towards prana (energy) and unconscious states of mind.
We will practice several energy-healing techniques in Finnish tradition that Petri learned from master healers, Pentti Penttilä, Pentti Mäkelä and Raimo Holtti. The techniques come from the ancient Finnish healing tradition called Jäsenkorjaus (bone or limb setting) and is, in many parts, similar to osteopathy. Some of the Jäsenkorjaus techniques; physical adjustments, energy healing, herbal healing, wet and dry cupping and healing with power words (similar with mantras). The workshop will cover mainly the energy healing part with few gentle physical adjustments for the feet and ankles.
Petri started studying Energy healing in Kaustinen, Finland in 1986. In addition to teaching yoga, Petri worked as a folk healer and naturopath and ran a natural treatment business in Helsinki, Finland from 1991-1998.
The energy-healing techniques are based on sensing and locating the blocks in the flow of energy throughout the body. We approach the more subtle layer of the body, beyond the physical, and work on releasing these energy blocks, using the most natural tools available: our mind, senses and the energy itself.
Students do not need any previous energy-healing experience or special skills to join this magnificent 5 day training.
Asana Adjustments - More than just physical support
The main theme in this course is built on the idea that adjustments are more than just physical support for the yoga positions. The ideal yoga adjustment incorporates the aspects that make up the Ashtanga yoga tradition -along with the teacher's knowledge and experience of life - combined with a therapeutic touch, healing treatment and the love of giving. This is the recipe to establishing long-term trust between the student and teacher while developing the practice naturally, as the body and mind slowly open up and obstacles are removed. Every adjustment will be safe and gentle, but at the same time deep and effective. Without an understanding of the body, psychology, posture technique, alignment, breath and movement of prana, it is not possible to accomplish a good adjustment.
In this course, we will primarily focus on poses in the first series of Ashtanga yoga. We will also cover the most important and utilized adjustments found in the second series. The poses, vinyasa, breathing and drishti follow in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, as it is taught in Mysore, India.
Students don't need any previous adjustment or teaching experience to join in this magnificant 5 day training.
