Jivamukti Workshops

Jivamukti Workshops Cat Alip-Douglas


Freut euch mit uns auf zwei wunderbare Workshops mit Cat vom Jivamukti Yoga London. Im ersten Modul werden wir unsere Fähigkeiten als aufmerksamer Beobachter der eigenen Denk- und Verhaltensmuster trainieren. Im zweiten Modul wird unsere individuelle Fähigkeit zur Öffnung in der Yoga Praxis und für eine universale Offenheit im übertragenen Sinne im Mittelpunkt stehen.

Beide Module sind in jedem Fall wunderbar intensive Jivamukti Yoga Masterclasses - eine Herausforderung für Körper und Geist.

Samskaras ... diffusing the anger bomb (vinyasa krama)
Samstag 08. August 18:00 - 20:00

»VI« means conscious and »NYASA« means placement. Through the vinyasa practice and with conscious breath as a foundation, we learn how to enter each moment (KRAMAH) with precision and equally exit with awareness. When engaged fully and deeply, the practitioner is able to watch the habitual reactions and examine potential patterns before reacting. With the skill, discipline and determination of a yogi, diffusing a reaction-bomb prevents further repetition and reinforcement of samskaras, liberating one from the cycle of suffering.

A practice in expansion … stop being a glass. become a lake (shoulder / hip openers)
Sonntag 09. August 12:00 - 14:00

Finding expansion in the practice depends on the approach and also the intention that motivates it. If strength, flexibility and gymnastics are the objective, this can be achieved and the practice will end there. However, if awakening is the goal, to recognise the “emptiness” and interconnectedness of all things, then through the yoga practice the universe begins to expand in our understanding of it. The change truly comes from within. Through the practice, we aim to stretch not only the breath and the body but also our perception of the world in which we reside.

An ageing master grew tired of his apprentice’s complaints. One morning, he sent him to get some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master told him to mix a handful of salt in a glass of water and then drink it.

“How does it taste?” the master asked.
“Bitter,” said the apprentice.

The master chuckled and then asked the young man to take the same handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and once the apprentice swirled his handful of salt in the water, the old man said, “Now drink from the lake.”

As the water dripped down the young man’s chin, the master asked, “How does it taste?”
“Fresh,” remarked the apprentice.
“Do you taste the salt?” asked the master.
“No,” said the young man.

At this the master sat beside this serious young man, and explained softly,
“The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains exactly the same. However, the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things. Stop being a glass. Become a lake.”


Die Workshops eignen sich für Yogis aller Level.

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 life...in 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
