10.6.2017 AcroYoga Workshop in München

AcroYoga verbindet das spirituelle Wissen des Yoga, das liebende Mitgefühl der Thaimassage und die Dynamik und Kraft der sanften Partnerakrobatik. Diese drei alten Traditionslinien bilden die Praxis, in deren Mittelpunkt Vertrauen, Verbindung und Verspieltheit stehen. Indem wir uns gegenseitig unterstützen, lernen wir Verbundenheit und Vertrauen zu kultivieren und bekommen den Mut den Sprung über unsere selbst auferlegten Grenzen zu machen um aus unserem vollsten Potential zu schöpfen.
Acro (der Wortstamm von Akrobatik) bedeutet auf griechisch “hoch“ oder “erhaben“. Yoga (aus dem Sanskrit) bedeutet “verbinden“ oder “zusammenkommen“. Im AcroYoga verbinden wir uns mit unseren Mitmenschen durch Bewegung, Begegnung und Spiel um gemeinsam neue Höhen zu erreichen.
Wie beim Yin und Yang beschäftigen wir uns im AcroYoga sowohl mit der sanften, nährenden Lunaren Praxis, und der feurigen, anregenden Solare Praxis. In diesem Workshop tauchen wir in das ganze Spektrum hinein.

Workshop1: Solares AcroYoga, 12 – 15 Uhr
Zum Solaren AcroYoga gehört die Partnerakrobatik, AcroYoga Washing Machines, und Umkehrhaltungen. Durch verschiedene Yoga- und Partnerübungen bringen wir Bewusstheit in jede Zelle unseres Körpers und entdecken dabei eine neue Kraft und Geschmeidigkeit. Mit Umkehrhaltungen, insbesondere dem Kopf- und Handstand stellen wir unsere Welt auf dem Kopf und gewinnen damit eine frische Perspektive. In der Akrobatik ist der Handstand eine so wertvolle Übung, aus der ein großer Schatz an Körperintegration gewonnen werden kann. Daher bilden Handstandübungen eine wichtige Basis aus der wiederum eine Vielfalt an Partnerbewegungen erforscht werden können. Die progressiven Übungen lassen es zu in jedem Level zu Üben, auch wenn man meint noch „meilenweit vom Handstand entfernt zu sein“ oder aber sich schon sehr gut im Handstand fühlt. Beim akrobatischen Fliegen sind Base und Flieger aktiv. Als Flieger lernen wir bekannte und neue Asanas in der Luft umzusetzen. Schwebend und drehend auf den Händen und Füßen der Base, werden einzelne Elemente zu „Washing Machines“ und “Transitions“ aus der Partnerakrobatik verwebt, die unsere Bewegungen zu einem eleganten Tanz verfließen lassen. Eine zentrale Rolle kommt dabei dem “Spotter“ zu, den nur wenn dieser präsent ist können Base und Flieger angstfrei und in einem sicheren Raum ihre eigenen Grenzen erforschen und erweitern. Dabei verbessert sich die Körperintelligenz und es macht riesen Spaß!
Workshop 2: Lunares AcroYoga, 16 – 18:30 Uhr
Zum Lunaren AcroYoga gehört das sogenannte “therapeutic flying“, Elemente aus verschiedenen Heilkünsten, insbesondere der Thaimassage und sanftes Yoga als Vorbereitung für die Zusammenarbeit. Mit dem therapeutischen Fliegen bringen wir die Heilprinzipien der Thaimassage in die Luft und genießen Dehnungen, Twists, Massagen und “anti-gravitational spinal elongation“, unterstützt von den Händen und Füssen unser “Base“ (Unterperson). Als “Base“ erfahren wir wie es ist uns mit der tragenden Kraft der Erde zu verbinden und stabil, präsent und kraftvoll für unseren “Flieger“ (Oberperson) da zu sein. Beim Geben üben wir uns in „Metta“ (das liebende Mitgefühl) und Hingabe – Hingabe um dem Fluss des Körpers zu zuhören und zu folgen. Als Flieger dürfen wir ganz passiv sein und eine Art fliegende Massage empfangen. Dabei erleben wir, wie einfach es sein kann zu vertrauen, los zu lassen und schwerelos zu sein. Der sogannte “Spotter“ (Hilfestellung) schafft einen sicheren Raum. Mit unserer Atmung, den natürlichen Kräften der Schwerkraft und „Metta“ ermutigen wir Körper und Geist, Ängste und Spannungen loszulassen.

18. - 28.8.2017 Flying Yogis Teachertraining (AcroYoga) Modul 2

 Flying Yogis 200 Hour Teacher Training

let your spirit shine with yoga, healing arts, and acrobatics

Bring your practice to the next level and learn to share your love of lunar and solar partner- and Acro Yoga practices in an authentic, safe and heart-centered way. Experienced AcroYoga teachers Winfried and Sophia Ruhs will guide you on this beautiful journey, exploring yoga, healing arts such as Thai massage and partner acrobatics.
Three pillars of the practice: * connect with the wisdom of yoga, pure presence and the miracle of the breath * explore and deepen your healing capacities through massage and other healing arts * empower through mindful, strengthening and playful acrobatics and let your inner child shine
Finding the teacher within The teaching path is a beautiful way to deepen your own understanding, hone your skills, and grow in your capacity to hold space for others. For those of you with a deep love and enthusiasm for Acro Yoga, teaching this beautiful practice may be the natural next step. The Flying Yogis 200 Hour Teacher Training, created by experienced AcroYogis Sophia and Winfried Ruhs provides a unique opportunity to learn the art of teaching Acro Yoga in an authentic, heart-centered, safe and playful way. We will delve deep into the practice, refining our own embodiment, taking our practice to the next level and finding our own voice and strengths as a teacher. By exploring where our true passions lie, and what the practice means to us, we allow the inner teacher to shine. A large focus of the training will be allowing our personal gifts to unfold and find our unique way in how we would like to share the greatest gift – which is ourselves – with the world, through this beautiful practice of Acro Yoga. This teacher training will also supply you with a treasure chest of tools and knowledge as well as cultivating solid skills so that you are able to share both lunar and solar aspects of the practice in a safe and joyous way and create community wherever you go! We will learn how to lead classes either alone or with a co-teacher and gather inspiration for creating longer events such as workshops or retreats. Taking the torch of a teacher means igniting your own potential and is a powerful means to deepen your own understanding of the practice.
Joyous embodiment To share the practice of Acro Yoga, you do not need to be a super yogi, professional acrobat, or Thai massage master. What is required moreover is the humbleness for studentship, the dedication to refine your own embodiment, and the ability to create a safe space for your students. We will spend lots of time every day practicing basic skills as well as taking our own practice to the next level. A deep understanding of the practice is needed in order to share your skills with integrity. This means we will be doing lots of yoga asana, massage, inversions practice, basing and ofcourse flying, flying, flying to new heights! We will cover lots of theory and bring the theory into practice, becoming stronger every day.
Creating space for growth on all levels While we do promise that you will learn new ”washing machines”, massage flows and excercises for making your handstands ”tighter” and stronger, our foremost focus will be on the role of the teacher. In sanskrit there are two words to describe a teacher – Guru and mittra. Let’s start with the word Guru. While in the Western world, Guru has come to have some negative associations, the original meaning is ”that which leads from darkness to light”. We could also translate this as from ignorance to understanding or from the false to the true. Often the word Guru is used to describe a teacher. Mittra means a friend, or a guide. The practice of Acro Yoga can catalyze growth on many levels: what we see on the surface is the physical growth which comes from refining our embodiment and expanding our range of movement, however on the mental and emotional levels there can be a lot happeining to. The loving touch of Thai massage and other therapeutic elements may create space for emotional release while partner work in general provides a wealth of opportunity for honing our communication skills. Doing higher level acrobatics or really anything which is new may mean exploring our own boundaries. This type of exploration can also cause things to come up, emotions and feelings to appear. Many things may come up so it is important as a teacher to be able to hold space for growth on all levels through deepening your ability to listen, withhold jugement, be present and compassionate. And also to create an atmosphere where every student feels accepted and celebrated for who he or she is without expectation for performance. When shadow aspects of the self surface it’s important to allow this to happen and use it as a catalyst for deeper learning. We would like to impart tools for adressing the many emotional aspects that may arise through the practice, in this way being a teacher, friend and guide. It’s important to remember that the role of the teacher is not to fill our students with information, but rather to help them navigate the inner unfolding of their inate potential. In the words of Albert Einstein:
”A student is not a container you have to fill, but a torch you have to light up”
Theory and principles of teaching On a practical level we will discuss theory, philosophy and principles of teaching Acro Yoga, such a layering classes, theming classes, teaching to different levels or population groups, just to name a few. Creating bridges between the practices of yoga, healing arts and acrobatics and learning how to seamlessly weave different elements together to create a whole and unique experience for the students. An emphasis will also be on how to use our creativity to make each class fun, unique and giving students just what they need.

Dance of Metta

3. – 8. Januar 2018

Thaimassage Kurs am Chiemsee mit Zoltan Gyorgyovics, Assitenz Winfried & Sophia Ruhs

Dynamic Thai Massage, auch als “Der Heilige Tanz“ bekannt, ist eine komplexe jedoch wunderschöne Form der Thaimassage die uns eine neue Welt an Möglichkeiten den Körper zu verstehen und mit ihm zu arbeiten, eröffnet. Chaiyuth Priyasith von Chiang Mai († 2004) ist der Vater dieser dynamischen Heilkunst. Seine Techniken wurden über die Jahre weiterentwickelt um sie westlichen Schülern zugänglicher zu machen. Dynamisches arbeiten in der Thai Tradition ist sehr intuitiv und fast schamanisch. Es braucht sehr viel Feingefühl und Intuition um Blockaden auf der physischen, energetischen, emotionalen und spirituellen Ebenen zu lösen. In den letzten Jahren bekam diese dynamische Tradition viele Einflüsse aus der Osteopathie hinzu. Diese neue Form ermöglicht dem Geber sich mühelos und spielerisch zu bewegen, während er Spannungen und Blockaden durch rhythmisches Schaukeln und Kreisbewegungen löst und die Bewegungsfreiheit wieder herstellt. Diese Mischung der westlichen und östlichen Herangehensweisen macht die uralte Heilkunst der Thaimassage zugleich bunter und einfacher anzuwenden. Während diesem 5-Tage Kurs legen wir unseren Fokus auf unsere Haltung, Berührung und Präsenz, sowohl während wir in Bewegung sind, als auch in der Stille. Wir lernen Techniken von Kopf bis Fuß in Rücken, Bauch und Seiten Position. Dynamische und statische Techniken werden im Wechsel so eingesetzt, dass die bestmöglichen Wirkungen für den Empfänger erzielt werden. Meditation und Yoga geben uns einen wunderbaren Start in den Tag. Dieses Training ist für bereits Übende mit Vorerfahrung ideal. Der Kurs wird auf englisch unterrichtet.

Für Zoltan Gyoryovics (Sunshine Network Lehrer) ist Thaimassage eine spirituelle Praxis, die er gerne von Herzen teilt. Zoltans Wärme und sein großer Wissensschatz ermöglichen ihm diese uralte Heilkunst auf eine leicht zugängliche Art zu vermitteln.

Sophia und Winfried Ruhs sind leidenschaftliche Yogis und Bodyworkers. Sie unterrichten Yoga, Thaimassage und AcroYoga und leiten seit 2015 das Maitri Yoga Chiemsee. Sie wohnen mit ihrer Tochter im schönen Chiemgau / Deutschland. Mehr Infos www.flying-yogis.com und www.maitri-yoga-chiemsee.de
