Vedic Astrology Workshop

WHAT DID I COME TO EXPERIMENT IN THE PRESENT INCARNATION ?

Sunday, November 30, 2014 from 14:30 to 17:30
Centre de yoga Iyengar, 81 avenue Gambetta à Chatou
Entrance : 30 euros

WHAT IS VEDIC ASTROLOGY ?
Vedic (Indian) astrology is derived from the Vedas. These sacred, multi millennia texts, were sent to mankind by the great sages called Rishis, who had the vision of the ultimate Reality. The goal of astrology was to determine the most auspicious dates for the conduct and success of yajnas, the most important sacred fire rituals made for the welfare of humanity as a whole. Traditionally, in India, the astrologer or Jyotish is consulted regularly throughout life. He brings light, jyothi, on the different situations that everyone can meet. While remaining a remarkable prediction tool, Indian astrology is primarily a science linking humans to the cosmos and to the rhythm of nature.

Vedic astrology is both solar and lunar. In this sense, it is truly complete. The Sun, Surya, is a reflection of our soul and the Moon, Chandra, is our mind. The Indian zodiac includes the 12 sun signs that we all know but also 27 lunar signs, called nakshatras, unknown in the West. Yet knowledge of these lunar constellations is of inestimable value, as it can reveal the secrets of the universe that we all carry within ourselves.

Astrology turns out to be a wonderfull tool to discover more about oneself and others. It opens the doors of wisdom. In the light of Indian philosophy, we are led to accept the trials that lie ahead of us and to find solutions to lessen the karma. Not only does the astrologer help us to understand what happens to us or what happened to us, but it offers "cures" in connection with the planets in the form of prayers or actions to avoid or reduce the effects of negative karma. The knowledge of astrology helps us to make good decisions and to act at a favorable moment.

The Western man has despised astrological science because he has cut himself loose from the cosmos. And yet his development is closely linked to that of the universe. Today, man longs to return to the path of Dharma, the right way. And astrology, in its overall dimension, can be a great help.

Celebration and tribute to BKS Iyengar

Tireless researcher and passionate yoga master BKS Iyengar, internationally renowned, left this world at the age of 95 years Wednesday, August 20 in Pune (India). I had the privilege to study yoga at his side. His work and his life will remain an inexhaustible source of inspiration. He was constantly refining his art, transmiting his findings and serving humanity. His legendary rigor was the measure of his fervor. For him, yoga philosophy was inseparable from practice and practice inherent to philosophy. The body and the mind are inseparable : " Can you tell where the body begins and where the mind begins, can you identify the boundary between the one and the other? ". His mere presence made obvious the depth of his work. Philosopher, artist and scientist of yoga, he leaves behind him a structured way, hundreds of certified teachers, tens of thousands of practitioners worldwide and a considerable legacy to continue our interior pilgrimage towards the essence of being. Let us hope he continues to inspire all generations and especially youth to build a better, more conscious world.

"It is essential to master the art of standing correctly. A thousand things that apply to Tadasana apply to all other asanas. See how your intelligence is mobilized as soon as you hear Tadasana. When one is really in Tadasana, one feels light in the body and the mind acquires agility".
B.K.S Iyengar

Celebration in memory of B.K.S Iyengar, at the Chatou Iyengar yoga center Tuesday September 9th, 2014, at 19:30.
Please arrive at 19:15, if possible, so that we can start at 19:30 without delay.

If you can’t join us, you can connect youself in your own practice space in your heart and practice the following sequence of asanas (except for Tadasana, we leave the timings at your best judgment). Consider this sequence as a thanksgiving to BKS Iyengar for what he brought to our life and to the lives of millions of practitioners worldwide.

CANCERS

Each year in France, about 360,000 new cases and 150,000 deaths.
Understand their causes for better prevention and repair.
CONFERENCE by Dr Sigand ROOS
Acupuncturist and Ayurveda specialist - Professor of Holistic Medicine

Saturday, May 12, 2012, 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Participation : 10 €

Currently available therapies tend to focus on destroying the "you-die".
Come discover the relative importance of external factors (various polluants)
and internal factors (psychological) in the genesis of cancer.

It is essential to try to understand their causes in order to better prevent them, and promote
their repairs, because if the number of cancers already doubled in France between 1980 and 2008,
a much faster further doubling is forecasted between 2008 and 2020!

Conference - Discovering living food

A new lifestyle for an optimal health and a new consciousness. Why and how.

In answer to the imbalance engendered by modern food fashions, the live food uses products of vegetal and organic origin containing a maximum of vitality (germinated seeds and young shoots, vegetables and fresh fruit, cereal and germinated oleaginous plants) and preparation modes allowing to preserve intact their vital elements (enzymes, phytonutriments...). Fundamental notions and greedy discovery around an live buffet.
