Yoga Intensive Cat Alip-Douglas


Wir freuen uns, dass Cat Alip-Douglas of Sangyé Yoga School in London (Jivamukti Yoga London 2005-2015) für einen vierstündigen Workshop wieder zu uns nach Stuttgart kommt.

The Four Contemplations
Sonntag 09. September 10:00 - 12:30 und 14:00 - 15:30

Die vier buddhistischen Betrachtungen: Diese können auch als Tatsachen des Lebens angesehen werden und wie sie eine Entwicklung vom Schlaf der Unwissenheit hin zum Erwachen erleichtern können. Was ist die "Unwissenheit", auf die sich die buddhistische Lehre bezieht? Wie können wir durch die Kultivierung des Bewusstseins für diese vier Themen die "Täuschung" überwinden?

  • Unser kostbares Leben
  • Vergänglichkeit
  • Karma oder das Gesetz von Ursache und Wirkung
  • Die Natur von Samsara

Dieser Workshop ist ein Ausgangspunkt. Die Asana-Praxis wird die Wichtigkeit der "Kultivierung des Bewusstseins" auf vielen Ebenen widerspiegeln … kein geringes Ziel :)

Am Nachmittag folgen ein Vortrag und eine kontemplative Meditation basierend auf der obigen Lehre.

The Four Contemplations These can also be viewed as the facts of life and how they can facilitate a movement towards awakening from the sleep of ignorance and delusion. What is the “ignorance” referred to in Buddhist teachings? How does cultivating awareness of the four reminders enable us to overcome the “delusion”?

  • Our precious human life
  • Impermanence
  • Karma, or the Law of Cause and Effect
  • The Nature of Samsara

This workshop is a starting point. The asana practice will reflect the importance of “cultivating awareness” on many levels and chances are, it won’t be so easy :)

The afternoon session is a lecture and contemplative meditation based on the teaching above.

Let us reflect on what is truly of value in life, what gives meaning to our lives, and set our priorities on the basis of that. HH the 14th Dalai Lama


Der Workshop ist offen für alle Yogis.

The Journey from Condé to Sangyé

From the fashion floors of Condé Nast in New York to the wooden floors of Sangyé Yoga School in London, cat had officially traded in her Manolo Blahniks for a more 'grounded' approach to bare feet.

cat is originally from New York City where she discovered yoga on Lafayette Street and has been calling London home since spring 2004. She feels privileged to have been involved with Jivamukti Yoga London (est. 2005) from its inception and as it continues in its current incarnation, with more of a Tibetan Buddhist influence, as Sangyé Yoga School. She and her husband assumed responsibility (who truly “owns” anything?:) of the space in West London/Kensal Road in May 2010. Over a decade later, the aspiration remains the same, to be of service to the growing community of yogis who understood the distinct correlation between practice and life. The undertaking isn’t always easy or pleasant but small steps of steadfastness and commitment contribute to the ocean of merit. Recently, pandemic times has highlighted and presented an even more profound opportunity to apply the teachings and the practice IRL. Preparation is/was key!

If titles collected along the way bear significance or interest (in no particular/special order): Advanced Certified Teacher (Jivamukti), Senior Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance UK) and Co-“Owner” & “Founder” alongside Phil of the space that is Sangyé Yoga School in London.

Long life to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso...may he and the lineage continue to teach and inspire through his generous, humble and yet powerful presence, a living bodhisattva among us.

In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.
HH the Dalai Lama
