In the last week-end of May, Ingvar Villido, teacher of practical awareness and Babaji's Kriya Yoga from Estonia, will visit Luxembourg to give here the first two parts of his 5-part workshop series titled „The Art of Conscious Change“, which over the years has gathered much popularity in Estonia, as well as abroad. Ingvar is one of the most extraordinary Estonian yoga teachers, a beloved lecturer and founder of Lilleoru yoga centre (an internationally recognised ashram - place for deepened yogic studies - near Estonia’s capital city Tallinn).
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
In this workshop, Ingvar teaches unique knowledge and techniques, based on the practical use of awareness. Anyone who would like to stay more in the present moment, reduce the effect that negative or tiring emotions have on their lives, and in general know themselves better, would benefit from those teachings.
In Part I of the workshop, you will get a better understanding of the structure and workings of your inner world, as described by the ancient yogis, and learn how to better orientate in the different phenomena occurring within you. You will also learn techniques that enable you to start using your awareness practically (i.e. to "become aware"). Using those techniques always brings you back to the present moment (the "here and now").
In Part II of the workshop, you will learn various techniques for liberating yourself from negative emotions, which make you suffer, cause you problems or are just tiring. This includes techniques for releasing emotions which either always arise in certain situations (like anger, jealousy, disappointment, etc.) or which you might have constantly in the background (e.g. melancholy, depression, fatigue, etc.).
Ingvar's teaching method is highly practical, so that you will be guided through various exercises and guided practices which enable you to learn from your own experience. All techniques taught are based on the practical use of awareness (these are not physical yoga exercises and no previous experience with yoga is necessary for participation).
Having participated in this workshop myself a year ago, I can assure you that the techniques he teaches are really working and are very effective!
