Exploring Patanjali Yoga Sutras: Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are often viewed either in a scholarly or hatha yoga perspective. In reality 196 aphorisms of yoga sutras present the human integral science. Organized in four distinct chapters, yoga sutras unveil scientific and psychologically proven that can lead to a blissful life.

Yoga Anushasanam : Freedom from the KNOWN

Patanjali Yoga Sutras proclaim that you are defined by your mind stuff! You could live in any corner of the world, you could belong to any social, cultural or religious group, you could belong to any family situation or adopt any professional life, but your mind defines your personality.

Developing a clear understanding of oneself at different levels is the key to leading a healthy, happy and harmonious life. This effort starts with understanding one’s own mind and its modifications.

In this workshop, based on the the first chapter of yoga sutras, Sri Pattabhiram presents simple and practical ways to understand the MIND.

We live in a time where families are facing tough challenges in relationships due to selfishness, lack of commitment, egoistic attitudes, and measurement of love by materialistic values. Family is a sacred institution that provides a context for fulfilling ones aspirations in the external world while allowing practical spiritual evolution of individuals.

In this workshop, Sri Pattabhiram presents simple and practical methods for individuals to guide their families blossom into the space of listening, selfless sharing and unconditional loving.
 

Yoga Bala

Awaken the hidden power of yoga as taught by the masters of the Himalayan tradition

Yoga Bala – Why
  • Stress is the source of a negative mind
  • A negative mind generates toxins.
  • Toxins harden the pranic passages in the glands, joints, muscles and nerves.
  • This deposition of toxins leads to psychosomatic disease.
  • Disease destroys joyous life.

Yoga Bala – What  
  • Easy but effective yogic practices for joints, glands, muscles and nerves
  • Powerful nerve purifying, health rejuvenating, “Pranava Prana Kriya”
  • Art of Relaxation
  • Four Stage Meditation for spiritual enrichment

Jyothi Pattabhiram is a direct disciple of Swami Rama of the Himalayas, a great yogi, artist, musician, and dancer too. Having received the blessings and spiritual tutelage from her master, Jyothi successfully blends spirituality and the art of dance into a holistic personality of bliss in her following workshops to lead a stress-free blissful life.  

Rasa Yoga

Workshop on ‘BODY TO BLISS DYNAMICS’  Sail through YOUR - Physical, Emotional & Spiritual BEING

  • Envigour and strengthen your physical being by systematized beats, dance movements and yoga postures
  • Cultivate and refine your emotional being  through rhythmic breathing and richness of expressions
  • Integrate your Body-Mind-Intellect to land onto your spiritual being through RASA YOGA i.e. by harmonizing the inner state 

 The Holistic Dancer

A Holistic blend of Art-aesthetics and Life-aesthetics in a dancer’s personality – an awareness and insight into this concept is the objective of this workshop. The skills of a classical dancer, in terms of rhythm – movements – expressions – need to be yoked with a Holistic inner self, to achieve COMPLETENESS & TOTALITY OF THIS DIVINE ART OF DANCE.

The Holistic Dancer’ workshop is inspired by “Three” concepts: 
  •  Annadasya Sarve Jeevaha Maatram Upajeevanti” i.e. from this Bliss, all living beings derive happiness – Ananda is at the base of all life.  This is the Vedantic insight into Holistic personality.
  • Bharata Muni in his treatise Natya Shastra refers to “Samaahita Manas” i.e. only a serene mind can produce pure satvic feeings, which are not touched by personal emotions, yet spontaneous, creative and fragrant with human essence.  
  • A dancer’s personal emotions to be analysed in the light of this insight and refine the Satvika Abhinaya.The Holistic concept of man’s personality in five sheaths of existence – “Panchakoshas” as presented by the Taittareeya Upanishad is the third source of Inspiration in this workshop.

What do you learn and experience during the workshop?


  • Specific physical movements training to enhance most effectively the dancing skills of a dancer. 
  • Subtle but powerful breathing technique – PRANA MOVEMENT – to accelerate the physical efficiency in terms of Stamina, flexibility coupled with mental efficiency such as concentration, memory, spontaneity, and creativity.
  • Unique techniques of Demonstration of Satvika Abhinaya – facial expressions of inner emotions. 
  • The Holistic Dancer workshop concludes with a Meditation technique with Mantra Incantation and a special Relaxation – “Yoga Nidra” – to touch the depths of one’s Being.

  
The Tradition: We are citizens of two worlds – Inner and Outer. The teachings of the Himalayan tradition help to build a bridge between the two worlds by prescribing a two-fold approach of being skillful and wise in the external world, while following the path of exploring our inner dimensions and realizing our true SELF.
