WS Pranayama and Kriya with Gregor
Imagine how great it would be to have a switch that, when operated, would enable you to consciously choose between your right and left brain hemispheres, intuitive and analytical intelligence, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, fight/flight reflex and rest/relaxation, and between the male and female, solar and lunar, aspects of your psyche. How great it would be if, when required, you could switch from being compassionate to doggedly determined. Or from charged with energy to completely relaxed within a few minutes. Or from extrovert (physically present, expressive and outgoing) to introvert (reflective and absorbing) within a short time. This switch does in fact exist and it is not at all hidden. It is the prominently protruding olfactory orifice right in the middle of your face: your nose.
Pranayama includes some of the most neglected but yet most powerful methods of yoga. Pranayama is the vital link that connects asana to meditation without which the combined benefit of both cannot be harvested. Learn how to use pranayama to harmonize the doshas (humors of the body) and thus attain a state of health and balance as well as how to still the mind, enabling spiritual insight.
The kriyas are predominantly methods of purification of the body. They support the work of postures and are especially important for people who live in large cities. They aid in removing contamination from chemical, environmental, electrical, biological and electromagnetic sources.

WS Caring for Your Sacroiliac Joints with Monica
In this workshop Monica covers the basic structure and function of our sacroiliac (SI) joints and uses this knowledge to give you a deeper understanding of how to care for these important joints. We will look at what compromises SI joint stability, adaptations to avoid this and how to heal safely mobilise these joints. Monica brings her vast knowledge and experience as a Yoga Therapist, a Doctor of Chiropractor and over 40 years of personal yoga practice. Her insights as a therapist make this workshop powerfully relevant. Her teaching is guided by her passion to help others.
Gregor and Monica each began their yoga journeys in 1978. They met in India in 1995 both there in the pursuit of studying yoga. Together they created 8 Limbs, directed a yoga studio for 21 years, have published six textbooks on yoga and more recently their blog site, Chintamani Yoga.
They live remotely, on a mountain, surrounded by ancient rainforest and overlooking the Pacific ocean. Individually and together they offer workshops and teacher trainings from their home and all over the world.
