YogaPortraiture 2012 © Cynthia Sciberras-16

Cindy guides us through a simple mantra, and builds into a full sloka or verse. Each workshop has a specific focus, and Cindy explains the meaning of each Sanskrit word and its use in the chant. Yoga’s ancient roots, chants or mantras are offered in Sanskrit, the ancient language of India. Their meaning is said to be universal as Sanskrit is the language of the heart and human spirit, and is the perfect instrument for bringing about healing on many levels.

Listen to Cindy chanting here.

All welcome, with no prior experience required.

Movie Night

Breath of the Gods A journey through the origins of Modern yoga, that is, the form practiced daily by tens of millions of people around the world, goes back directly to Lord Shiva according to Indian tradition. At the same time, however, modern yoga originated in the early 20th century, a creation of Indian savant T. Krishnamacharya (1888-1989). That story is far less known and is what this film is all about.

Krishnamacharya’s life and teachings are seen through the eyes of the director Jan Schmidt-Garre on his search for authentic yoga. His journey leads him from the legendary students and relatives of Krishnamacharya’s to the source of modern yoga, at the palace of the Maharaja of Mysore. From Pattabhi Jois Jan learns the “Sun salutation”, from Iyengar the “King of Asanas”, the headstand, and finally Sribhashyam reveals to him his father’s secret “Life Saving Yoga Session”.

Please remember to RSVP.
