HEART OF YOGA
An authentic Yoga which opens the hearts for love and wisdom.
A course designed for all those who want to discover and/or deepen their yoga practice.
Susanne Daeppen teaches the breath-and processorineted Heart of Yoga which is in the lineage of Sri Krishnamacharya. Susanne is a licensed Heart of Yoga- teacher and is friends with its founder Mark Whitwell. As for Mark Whitwell, he studied many years with the Indian yoga master Krishnamacharya and brought the „Heart oft he Yoga“ around the globe into the yoga-world.
Susanne leads the practioners to the basis of deep breathing, which allows the yoga positions (asanas) to develop and to be mastered in a light and natural way. Heart of Yoga is practiced without any idea of achievement. It is an authentic yoga for the individual. The exercises alternate between singing, philosophy and stillness.. Their common goal is to see yoga, as an ancestral wisdom and practice, become part of our everyday lives and a guiding force for a healthy lifestyle.
SOULDANCE / BUTHO
A course designed for all those who want to discover and/or deepen the Art of Slow Movement.
We willingly leave the safety and pace of our everyday life and engage into unknown expanses through endless slow movement. For slowness is universal, but we have distanced ourselves from this notion and being as a competitive society, have even rejected it.
As a result of conscious reduction and attention, we feel wide awake and sense the most subtle nuances. The concept of achievement fades into the background, giving way to deeper silent qualities. We dive into the microcosm of the body and the endless depths of the soul: an authentic slow-motion dance arises, like a meditative journey through movement to your own self in the beauty of musical landscapes.
