Yoga weekend-workshops in Oslo
Traditional yoga in a modern context
Immersion in holistic Hatha yoga practice - Asana, Pranayama and meditation.
At Core Yoga I offer intensive teaching in Oslo and other parts of the country. You can sign up for individual courses or more over time to get a personal follow-up. The courses fit every level.
Hatha yoga is a classic yoga tradition with various exercises to promote physical and mental self-exploration and balance. The physical yoga poses (asana) are by far the most well-known Hatha yoga exercises in the world today, widespread in a myriad of different yoga schools. However, the other exercises are of at least equal importance to a successful yoga practice. These are (inter alia) stress-reducing techniques (kriyas), breathing exercises (pranayama) and sitting exercise with a specific inner focus (meditation exercise). Read more about Core Yoga and the philosophy behind it.
In the courses you will learn how Hatha exercises can be put together into a holistic and personal practice, in a way that is in line with the descriptions of effective yoga practices in classical Hatha texts and Patanjali Yoga Sutras (Ashtanga Yoga). It will be emphasized that asana, kriyas, pranayama and meditation practice are part of one and the same meditative process.
My background for teaching is extensive experience within traditional Hatha yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, personally guided by internationally prominent teachers of asana, pranayama and meditation. I have long-term comprehensive teacher training, both within and outside the Yoga Alliance. I am also a trained clinical psychologist in body-based relational psychotherapy. Read more.
I am opening Core Yoga with great thanks to my teacher Paul Dallaghan. His broad and flexible approach to Hatha yoga has inspired and developed my practice and teaching over the past three years. With such openness in my own practice, I have experienced more of the benefits of yoga.
