I’m very happy to share this news! I have 3 scheduled workshops in 3 cities in Indonesia with the topic of Yoga: the Science of Body, Mind & Soul.

The schedule is:

  • Sentul (Bogor) – at Fei’s Place, Saturday 13 August 2016 [Sold Out]
  • Bandung – at Amala Yoga Studio, Sunday 11 September 2016
  • Surabaya – at Hotel Santika Jemursari, Sunday 6 November 2016

In this workshop I will share about how yoga is a holistic methodology to uncover harmony and integration of the many layers of beings, the body, mind and soul. Yoga is not only asana (poses) but so much more! Topics covered are asana, pranayama, meditation, layers of beings and how does it work together, overview of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra & Bhagavad Gita, the different paths of yoga, and kirtan, a bhakti yoga practice.

I decided to offer this workshop due to my own experience a years ago. After months and years of regular yoga asana practice, I thought “Is that all there is to yoga? To be able to do challenging, difficult poses? There’s gotta be something more!”

I was really curious about yoga, and they say that when a student is ready a teacher will appear. I met a teacher that showed me glimpses of how whole, vast, and rich the world of yoga is. I went to the school where the teacher came from, and what they teach gave me a solid holistic framework to continue my own study. I’m still studying now, I am a perpetual student in yoga.

I’m grateful to have met someone that showed me clues or sign post pretty early in my yoga journey. I notice that this content is rarely offered in Indonesia, so I decided to try to offer this. I hope by sharing these, more yoga practitioners (and teachers too) understand how holistic yoga is, and that yoga is so much more than asana.
