– Collective games: a way to explore group dynamics and the influence of an individual over a group and the group over an individual.
– Physical structure awareness with exercises that help to develop awareness and conscious control of contraction and relaxation in the body.

Ayurvedic Massage Therapy with Umberto Grippo
5- 12 May 2014 in Root To Light Yoga Studio

fb_banner.jpg

Book a Therapeutic Ayurvedic Massage with Umberto Grippo which works on all levels!!
Cost:
1 massage €60
2 massages €110
3 massages €150

About the massage:

The physical body:as we massage the body, we activate the water element, (lymph, blood, fluids.) As this work continues, the fire element (heat in tissues, organs, metabolism) activates & begins to dislodge toxins. The water element then transports the toxins to exit points (blood, urine, faeces, sweat, breath). As toxins are eliminated the air element (respiration, circulation) and ether elements (space of the body, organs, systems, etc.) function better.

The energetic body: feels the improvement of the physical, but is further stimulated by the activation of Marma points (vital energy points) that we stimulate as we work. This work combines to free the pranic or vital energy flow in the system.

The emotional body: feels the benefit of this work. Our body tissue carry memories of past experiences; these experiences can be re-awakened during the therapy. The treatment helps to free the tissue and emotions of their blockages.

The mental body:registers this experience, feels the benefits & a new clarity arises; often leading to lifestyle changes and decisions.

The higher bodies: (astral, spiritual, causal bodies), our dream world; spiritual connections and connection to consciousness all become clearer, lighter and more balanced.

Awareness through the body introductory workshop

7th and 8th June 2014

About Awareness Through the Body

ATB has emerged from our personal path, our work in the experimental schools of Auroville and our work with adults. We have developed a programme in which, along with our exercises, we have included exercises from a wide variety of techniques.

ATB is a way to explore the being and expand consciousness. Listening to sensations, the language of the body, facilitates the contact with and the exploration of the different parts of our being.

ATB offers a wide variety of tools and opportunities to explore oneself. Each person can find her/his own way into self discovery, into opening the doors that lead to the richness within. It helps us to contact our inner being and to open the way for inner growth. ATB is a means to come to know and perceive oneself and the world in a deeper and more intimate way.

Summarising ATB is about Introspection, Exploration and Self-discovery from an open – all embracing – non involved attention: the Observer within – the Witness attitude.

During the workshop we will invite you to just observe yourself, to notice the inner and outer movements that take place without getting involved; to simply hold an impartial watcher stance, from a non judging, non critical non analyzing position within.

The workshop wants to offer you a safe space where to explore awareness of being aware, a space away from daily life where all doing can stop and you can simply be, and reconnect to your Self.

About the Introductory workshop to ATB

ATB 1 is the introductory and most basic of the ATB workshops. The themes we are going to explore are the key themes of the method:

Attention and Concentration: Exercises to direct and focus attention, and to build the capacity for concentration.
Different planes of the being: Theoretical and practical exploration.
Breathing: Activities to develop awareness of the breath and how breath affects the different parts of the being.
Relaxation: Exercises to enhance the capacity to consciously enter physical, emotional and mental relaxation.
Sensory Awareness: Exercises to enhance the ability to sense.
Plates: Introspective exercise that leads the participants to experience simultaneously the existence of an inner and outer space.

This workshop aims at:

• Offering the possibility to enter in contact with the basis and the way of working in Awareness Through the Body.
• Presenting a sample of the different types of exercises and activities we do, so that you can experience them in your body, integrate them and thus be able to bring them to your work/life.
• Providing possibilities for self discovery and inner growth.
