ASHTANGA YOGA RAUM FRANKFURT

ASHTANGA YOGA IN TRADITIONAL MYSORE STYLE

NAMASTÉ

Christian O. Braun has been teaching authentic and devotedly Ashtanga Yoga in the traditional Mysore style since 2005 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 limbs of the Ashtanga. 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 instructions, a Mysore hour is basically like a private Ashtanga yoga unit. At the same time, one benefits from the motivating and inspecting energy of all practitioners in the room.

AT THE BEGINNING THERE IS THE HUMAN PHYSIQUE

In the beginning, Ashtanga is usually experienced as a physically demanding yoga form. 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 isto find a unique balance between rest and challenge in yoga, 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-customized yoga practice.

IMPORTANCE OF THE TEACHER-STUDENT RELATIONSHIP

Students who already have a permanent yoga teacher and are only in Frankfurt to visit (drop-ins) are welcome to 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 yoga in a group and under the guidance of a teacher. That’s why, at Ashtanga Yoga Raum Frankfurt, I have never excluded those from participating at my classes, who are less well-funded. Students f.ex. pay a reduced monthly contribution. 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 be the reason for not participate regularly in my yoga classes. This also applies to the workshops I offer”

Support the principle of solidarity

With the principle of solidarity, I am, of course, bound by the financial possibilities of AYRF. Everyone is welcome to support this principle of solidarity. Members can voluntarily increase the monthly fee by 5.00 – 15.00 € (10-cards: 10.00 – 20.00 € extra). I would be happy if this principle of solidarity convinces you and you become a supporter within the limits of your possibilities!
