Mere entertainment or an art of living, this tool makes one blossom at every contact. In this circle of joy where each one encounters his difficulties, we laugh at the vagaries of life without worrying ourselves with what comes next. At times flexible, at times less so, the player juggles with his abilities, never quite revealing them, using 'malicia' and guided by his most childlike perception.

Class open to all levels / 13 years old and above

Conducted by Aranha & Presente under Prof. Samuka da Índia's supervision

Healing the mental and physical body is attainable using the restorative combination of Asana(posture), pranayama( breathing techniques), mudra (gestures mimicking the psyche), Bandha(energy locks). These techniques purify the body,mind and energy systems in preparation for a deep meditative practice.

Hailing from South India, and currently residing in Auroville, Aishwarya has trained in the traditional methods of teaching yoga, receiving certifications from 1000Yoga (Bangalore) and Yogadarshanam (Mysore). She has been teaching for 1 year. “My yoga practice has taught me that there lies a potential within each one of us waiting to be discovered. I am keen to contribute to our community the meaning of yoga practice, as taught to me by my esteemed teachers.

All are invited to the Peace Meditation in the Hall of Peace at Unity Pavilion to help call down and manifest the Peace for the world, for humanity, for ourselves, for the Divine.  This is a space for collective aspiration in silence (though sometimes we must bear with the noises of the surrounding world and still work to build the Peace), where we can connect with a Higher Peace Consciousness and allow it to influence all of our Life - individual and collective - Auroville, India and the world - Mind, Life, and Body.  Let us join together in these times of great tension and confusion around the world so that a new Power of Peace may Manifest for All.  Join us from 5:00 to 5:45 PM every Thursday.  Peace and Light to All!

The Feldenkrais Method cultivates awareness through movement. Inspired by animals and human infants, we experiment with different movement possibilities and learn about patterns of holding, discovering how to move in a skillful and efficient way. Dr. Feldenkrais designed the lessons “to turn the impossible into the possible, the difficult into the easy and the easy into the pleasant”.

Nur Bar-Onhas been practicing the Feldenkrais Method since 2010 and became a certified teacher after 3 years of study (2015-18). She has taught in Israel, Germany and Portugal, and likes to assist others in discovering more skillful ways of being in their bodies.

Whether you want to strengthen your core, create long, lean muscles, add a low-impact workout to your exercise regimen or get rid of a regular back pain, Pilates can help!

Above all, Pilates focuses on teaching you to stabilize and strengthen your core, on keep/bring the body to his natural alignment and this is one of the most important things you can do to be/feel healthy. 

Pilates also works on developing awareness of the body, the way it moves and the relation between all the movement and the spine and core muscles.

"A man is as young as his spinal column" Joseph Pilates.

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

 

 

 

Christine was born in France in 1967. After completing her studies as Nurse in 1988, she started working as a nurse and soon started

In 1995 She created Orient explorers a tourism and travelling association and worked within until 2002. She came across Vipassana meditation  and decided to settle in Auroville in 2002,  an intentional spiritual community located in South India.

In 2004, after two years studying  Hatha Yoga and Yengar, she discovered  Ashtanga Yoga  and started to  study with Monica Marinoni until 2016 and  since 2007  under the guidance of Sri Sharath Jois  (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’grandson)  at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.

For 13 years she studied the yoga through her own daily practise and teaching, the mind through regular and repetitive meditation retreats, she gave importance to the sadhana, she learned more about the body through her training and experience in Thai yoga massage and about the mind through her training and practise in NLP (sessions, workshop) .   

With deep gratitude and respect she shares the primary series teachings as she has been taught by Monica Marinoni and Sri Sharath Jois.

"The purpose of vinyasa is for internal cleansing" ("Ashtanga Yoga"). Synchronizing breathing and movement in the asanas heats the blood, cleaning and thinning it so that it may circulate more freely. Improved blood circulation relieves joint pain and removes toxins and disease from the internal organs. The sweat generated from the heat of vinyasa then carries the impurities out of the body. Through the use of vinyasa, the body becomes healthy, light and strong ("Ashtanga Yoga").

Acroyoga is a physical practice which combines yoga, acrobatics and Thai massage. Acroyoga is arguably a bit of a misnomer as the popular movement worldwide is more commonly refereed to by practitioners simply as Acro and includes all types of partner and group acrobatics in which at least someone is lifted.

Restorative Yoga classes are relaxing and slow paced; a whole session may consist of as few as five or six postures that are held for long periods of time. Props (including bolsters, blankets, blocks, and belts) are often used to allow the body to be in the most comfortable, supported position possible. Gentle music and guided meditation enhance the calming effects.

Restorative Yoga is known for its relaxing and healing effects. It has its roots in the yoga of B.K.S. Iyengar, who developed it to help students practice without any strain or pain. This was further expanded into a whole system of yoga which is considered ideal for those recovering from injuries or illnesses.

Restorative yoga stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the heart rate, regulates the blood pressure and relaxes the body, and is therefore considered particularly beneficial for those suffering from stress-related conditions (including anxiety, insomnia or headaches). Restorative Yoga is also believed to boost the immune system and accelerate the body s natural healing process.

Sheida is a certified yoga teacher from the SportFor All Federation of Iran. She has been teaching yoga for 7 years, and is also a certified hydrotherapist, aqua yoga and swimming instructor. An avid student of health and healing modalities, Sheida recently completed training in Foot Reflexology.Sheida is a Savi volunteer, visiting Auroville from her home country of Iran.

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.
