NADI SHODHANA – Balancing the Pairs of Opposites A 5-DAY IMMERSION with KIA NADDERMIER

Ashtanga Yoga | Mysore Practice | Pranayama | Meditation | The Art of Adjustments Stockholm January 20-24 2023

We are so happy to welcome Kia again to Stockholm and Atmajyoti Yoga, for a 5-day immersion.

 

NADI SHODHANA – Balancing the Pairs of Opposites

The Sushumna Nadi or the mid-line of the body is described in Tantric texts as an empty vessel, a flute played by Krsna. When Prana flows freely through the central channel, the mind settles into the breath and they become one. Entering this sanctuary within, separation and duality is dissolved and we are left with a deep sense of wholeness and interconnectedness.

 

Nadi Shodhana, the Intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga is said to balance the pairs of opposites and heal all divisiveness for this very reason.

 

In this Immersion we will explore how to bring the vibratory patterns of Prana and Apana into a supportive balance through breath, alignment, bhavana, bandha & mudra. We uncover the deeper meaning of Nadi Shodhana as a path to intimacy with these subtle energetic streams and their influence on all layers of our being – body, breath and mind.

 

This process of unfolding connects us to a natural openness of heart which awakens our inherent capacity for healing, wholeness and interconnectedness.

 

Kia will guide us through traditional Mediation & Pranayama practices in the lineage of Kaivalyadham and take us on a dynamic and explorative journey of Nadi Shodhana, the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga.

 

We will unveil this transformative sequence in practice, principles, the Art of Adjustments as well as the yogic teachings underpinning its physical and energetic form. We will approach these practices with a wholistic and inquisitive mindset, enabling us to inform and inspire our practice regardless of current experience – beginner, intermediate or advanced.

 

Please note that you do not need to be an Intermediate Series practitioner to join, this workshop is open for all interested practitioners with an established Ashtanga practice.

Philosophy & Pranayama

Friday Evening & Saturday Afternoon (1h30)

 

The division between the body and mind is first healed with the breath. Hence Pranayama is considered the central aspect of any authentic Hatha yoga practice. In these sessions we will deepen our intimacy with the subtleties of breath and its significance in yogic practices and philosophy. We will explore the link between Nadi Shodhana, Pranayama and the Ashtanga Intermediate Series sharing the same name.

 

New students will be introduced to traditional teachings of Pranayama & Kriyas, whilst those with more experience will refine and deepen their practice and understanding.

 

The Art of Adjustments – Awareness, Principles, Practice & Philosophy

Saturday Afternoon (2h30)

 

This class is explorative in nature and designed to support teachers as well as practitioners wishing to expand their understanding of the art of adjusting and the inner and outer form of the Ashtanga Yoga sequence and its philosophy. Cultivation of internal and physical awareness and observation skills is the foundation for all adjustments. We pay careful attention to each individual, looking at common body patterns, helping to build an intelligent, mindful practice and relevant teaching skills.

 

Meditation, Satsang & Inquiry

Sunday Afternoon (2-2h30)

 

Satsang means exploring truth in the gathering of ones spiritual community, Sangha. This last afternoon session of the immersion, Kia will guide us in a centring meditation practice as well as offer space for Satsang – discussion and inquiries around the practice and philosophy of yoga. We will open the floor for looking deeper at the practices that has been covered over the weekend to develop our skills and expand our understanding.

 

Shanti Path, Meditation & Mysore Practice

Monday &Tuesday morning

 

We open our morning with traditional Peace Prayer and a guided meditation to align body, heart and mind. Kia will take us through the first standing postures together to set a common intention, before we continue into Mysore self practice at your own rhythm. This is a wonderful opportunity to apply the teachings from the weekend in your personal practice, while receiving individual guidance from Kia to further deepen your experience. With a sincere dedication to the growth and development of each of her students, Kia offers an including, safe and inspiring space open for personal exploration, inquiry and transformation. All levels welcome but you need to be able to practice Mysore Style Self-Practice.
