Workshop mit Sri Sudhir Tiwari - Thu, 16 July - Sun, 19 July 2015


– Pranic Pulse Taking

– Personal Pranayama Practice Regimen


– Individual Aurvedic Consultation with Ayurvedic Pulse Taking


Workshop content

Yoga is basically an experiential science and is explained in tradition by three terms, Prayoga (practice), Samprayoga (effect of the practice) and Samprasad (impact of the practice on ones personality) and the underlying principle behind is experience. In this workshop we will immerse ourselves into yogic practice of Asanas, Pranayama, chanting and Meditational techniques using traditional methods and guidelines. At the same time we will discuss the principles of yogic therapy from modern scientific perspective that can be applied to ones day to day living. In particular we will try to understand Kriyas, Asanas and Pranayama. No study in Yoga therapy would be complete without understanding the foundation of Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science and application of Ayurvedic principles to yoga in general but Pranayama in particular. We will study selected sutras (aphorisms) from “Carak Saram” an Ayurvedic text written for yoga practitioners.


Morning pulse check with Sudhir

Pranayamic/ Pranic pulse will be taken prior to the morning pranayama practice. At the end of the workshop based on their pulse sheet all participants will be recommended a individual Pranayama practice regimen. For participants who were recommended a practice at previous workshops with Sudhir Tiwari (or O.P. Tiwari), their progress will be checked and if needed the practice will be modified to suit the level of progress.

Personal Ayurvedic consultation with Sudhir: All participants will have the optional possibility to have a personal ayurvedic consultation with Sudhir. The dates for the appointments will be fixed together with the application. The costs for the personal ayurvedic consultation is a so called “Love offer” (means “freiwillige Spende”). The Collection box will be at the studio. At the time of consultations the ayurvedic pulse will be taken as well as ayurvedic and western herbs/remedies will be suggested, based on ayurvedic principles and on queries by the participants as well was appropriate diet references. The consultations will address health and lifesystyle issues. The Workshop will be held in English.


Sri-Sudhir-TiwariAbout Sri Sudhir Tiwari

Sri Sudhir Tiwari is the eldest son of our beloved and highly respected teacher Sri O.P. Tiwari. Sudhir was brought up at Kaivalyadham Yoga Institute, in Lonavala, India, amidst rich traditional yogic heritage of Swami Madhavdasji Maharaj, Swami Kuvalyanandaji and Swami Digambarji. Swami Digambarji initiated Sudhir in 1981 and accepted him as a disciple. Sudhir received his primary and advanced Yogic and Ayurvedic training from Swami Digambarji which included the study of traditional texts, mantra yoga, fire ceremony, pranayama and various aspects of adhyatm (spiritual) yoga. Sudhir also learnt pranayama and Hathapradipika from his father. When you meet Sudhir, you will know he has lived and breathed yoga his whole life. He is such a humble, yet energetic and enthusiastic teacher with a mastery and knowledge of yoga you won´t be able to find very often. In his workshops you cannot only explore the tradition but also the scientific reasoning behind why we do the yogic practices. We will also be looking into ayurveda, yoga’s sister science, and why they are synergistic. Sudhir held a Workshop at Pureyoga together with his father in September 2013 and instantly he could gain a crowd of fans. Now we are very happy to welcome him for a workshop again.
