BIG CHANGES AT DEEP CREEK YOGA
Change of format - The whole power of the Dhanda, longi, Hanthawaddy, and even the Letha yoga is from the internal energy system as it is generated through the Koghan system of zones.Posturing is always important, but not as important as developing one's internal life force. The main goal of yoga should be self realization: however it seems that most people just want a quick superficial overview of the postures without involving their life force. "That is like learning how to play an electric guitar without ever plugging it in. It is only cheating the practitioners and the true importance of this system as was taught in the tradition of the Pyu
Workshops of 2-3 days works best If you really want to learn how to develop and generate your energy system. Deep Creek Yoga has gone international- will be in Costa Rica till mid March to look for a good winter ashram.
Teachers Training -There are a few spots left when I return From Costa Rica in the spring. The qualifications to learn this system are based on desire, self discipline, and determined focus.
Dhanda yoga – A system using Dhanda (staff) to develop alignment,
stability, flexibility and stamina. Dhanda is the yoga symbol for the human
spine through which prana (vital energy or chi) flows.
Longi Yoga – A system using a rope to develop strength, flexibility, and
Min Zin – Internal system to generate, store, and transmit “Prana” internal
healing energy. Focused breath and meditation.
Khoghan – Nine energy zones in the body responsible for the pathways and
flow of energy.(southern Tibet and Pyu system of yoga)
Hanthawaddy Yoga – A system of yoga which combines movement and
breath, using specific alignment and energy flow from the Khoghan system. This system is very difficult and powerful. It would be hard to learn Hanthawaddy without these other systems.
