ASHTANGA YOGA RAUM FRANKFURT

aṣṭāṅga YOGA IM TRADITIONELLEN MYSORE-STIL

NAMASTÉ

My name is Christian O. Braun, welcome to my website. I have been teaching Ashtanga Yoga in the traditional Mysore style since 2005 devotedly and authentically in Frankfurt/Nordend. The focus is on individuality – because each path is different. In order to do justice to this, I accompany practitioners individually and adapted to their possibilities in their yoga practice.

ॐ First you go INSIDE, then OUTSIDE. ॐ

In addition to the physical aspect, I give a deeper insight into the further paths of Patanjali. The eight paths are: Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi. The goal of the courses is a dynamic meditation that can enable us to have an honest, deep and true experience of our self.

TRADITIONAL MYSORE STYLE

In the traditional Mysore style, a teacher supports the student in finding his own living practice (self-practice) or in deepening his existing practice individually. In addition, the student receives adapted assistance and is corrected in the execution of the postures (asanas). Due to the individual guidance, a Mysore lesson is basically like a private yoga session. At the same time, you benefit from the motivating and inspiring energy of all practitioners in the room.

AT THE BEGINNING THERE IS THE HUMAN PHYSIQUE

At the beginning, the asana practice is usually experienced as physically very demanding. However, the practice in the Mysore style is always adapted to the respective possibilities of the practitioner. Students are therefore challenged, but not overwhelmed. The aim is tofind a unique balance between calm and challenge, between breath and movement, and between attention and in-self-sweeping.

FOCUS ON INDIVIDUALITY

In addition to the focus on tradition and dedication, at AYRF we see the mysore style teaching primarily as an individualized practice. In order to prepare for certain asanas or to respond to physique-psychic conditions, we detach ourselves from the strict tradition if necessary. Then we use e.g. variations in the sequence or execution of the exercises, which everyone can carry out guaranteed. The goal is a traditional but individualized practice.

IMPORTANCE OF THE TEACHER-STUDENT RELATIONSHIP

Students who already have a permanent teacher and are only visiting ,for example (drop-ins), practice their usual practice at AYRF. Out of respect for the teacher-student relationship, I do not make any changes to their practice. I always discuss exceptions with the student if I consider it absolutely necessary, for example, for health reasons.

PRINCIPLE OF SOLIDARITY

Everyone should have the opportunity to practice in a group and under the guidance of a teacher. That is why, from the very beginning, I have not excluded those who are less well-funded from participating in classes at AYRF. In addition, anyone who should be in a difficult financial situation can personally agree with me on an individual, affordable contribution. This applies as long as a full contribution cannot be paid.

“MONEY SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WAY OF REGULAR PARTICIPATION IN MY CLASSES. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO THE WORKSHOPS I OFFER – WE WILL FIND THE RIGHT CONTRIBUTION FOR EVERYONE.”

Support the principle of solidarity

The principle of solidarity is, of course, subject to AYRF’s financial capabilities. The registration fee for new members is a pillar of this principle – these revenues are used in accordance with this principle of solidarity. In addition, each member is more than welcome to voluntarily increase his monthly fee by €5.00 – €30.00 (10 cards: €10.00 – €20.00 extra). I would be happy if this principle is convincing and you become supporters within your means! All prices are including VAT.
