Pranayama for regular practitioners with Francois and Namrita at Pitanga 

Every Friday from 6.30 to 8.00 am

Event /
Quiet Healing Center
04:45 PM

Open Heart-Space Meditation is a simple practice of becoming aware of the reality as it is without judgement, interpretation or reaction, and settling into its vast luminous expanse.

We learn to embrace and let go each experience as it arises and subsides. Eventually, the mind falls silent and sinks into the open heart-space, a doorway to unity-consciousness, where the inner and outer worlds meet and merge.

Along with meditation practice based on insight techniques, the session also offers simple yoga exercises, mantra chanting, energetic healing, playful interaction and dialogue, and whatever else may arise in the moment. 

Samrat grew up in the Integral Yoga Ashram of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother for 21 years and has been living in Auroville since 2000.

No previous experience is required to attend these sessions.

 

All are welcome!

Ashtanga  Yoga

All students commence their instruction in the same manner in which on the first day of class they are taught Surya Namaskar A, followed by Padmasana and deep breathing, and a few minutes of rest to conclude their first day of practice. The next day after Surya Namaskar A has been performed, Surya Namaskar B is taught, and one then again concludes in the same method as the previous day, with Padmasana, deep breathing, and rest. After both of the Surya Namaskar have been learned correctly, each of the various asanas are added one by one. When one asana is correct, the next one is taught. Depending on the age and ability of the student, it can take anywhere upwards of 3 months to learn the primary series.

 From Monday to Friday: the format of the practice always remains the same; one always begins practice on his own with Surya Namaskar, concludes with Padmasana and rest, and the various asanas gradually fill the space between these two poles It is through the daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga that we draw it into ourselves, understand it.
On Saturdays, group guided classes are taught, in which all the vinyasas are counted out loud and all students follow along together accordingly

Presentation /
Solitude Farm
11:30 AM

Dear Friends,

Join us every Friday from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm as we explore Solitude farm and the three steps on our road back to Nature. Experience the farm with Krishna as your guide as he shares his understanding of 25 years having started Solitude Farm and studying with Masanobu Fukuoka.

For more information, please contact Krishna - 984 331 2960 & krishnamckenzie@auroville.org.in

-----

Solitude was started in 1996 by a group of young Aurovillians. One of them, Krishna Mckenzie, inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka developed the farm with the ideas of Natural farming and permaculture.

Much like the rest of Auroville, the land needed tending and care. Fukuoka advocated that all the bio-resources around us, such as leaves, weeds, branches, etc., should constantly be returned to the soil to increase soil fertility. We have come to understand, over the years, that a healthy soil is Mother Earth, and through a deepening of our relationship with Her, we now use over 130 different plants in the food we serve at the café.  

No pesticides or fertilizers have ever been used on the land. We practice non-tillage and no machines or tractors are used. Every part of this land is honored and respected.

Solitude Farm is a true example of Masanobu Fukuoka’s philosophy in practice – a road back to nature through eating local food.

By becoming conscious and attentive to prana — and enhancing and directing its flow through the pranayama practices—we can rejuvenate the body-mind- energy, enhance sensitivity and perception, expand inner awareness, and open the door to higher states of consciousness.

on Saturday from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

Gurdjieff movements, also known as “sacred dances” are a powerful tool for inner and outer awareness. The practice makes it possible to become free of the automatism and habits of our body, emotions and mind. By moving differently than we usually do, we experience new qualities of energy and meet ourselves in new ways. The movements/dances were collected and developed by Gurdjieff during his extensive travels in the near and far east and in his institute for “the harmonious development of man”.

 

Yoffi has been teaching yoga and movement meditation for several years, and has experienced with various body work methods. She recently completed a 200-hour training at Gurdjieff Movement Centre, and likes to share the beautiful work of the movements.
