PABLO ALVAREZ 4 Day Immersion (Perth)

4 DAY YOGA IMMERSION with International Yoga Teacher Pablo Alvarez
Thursday, 6 June 2013 to Sunday, 9 June 2013

A FOUR DAY VINYASA COURSE where you will not only learn about philosophy, biomechanics and functional anatomy, alignment and sequencing, but you will be introduced to a slightly different approach to looking at your asana practice by exploring the five elements and how they can be incorporated in your practice. All these energetic qualities that manifest in asana are also present in the postures themselves.

We will explore techniques and different ways of understanding how to manifest these elements on and off the mat. The asana practice becomes a tool for a deep understanding of the self and spiritual development. Incorporating the elements in the practice take us to a higher state of awareness, producing alignment, balance and happiness. We will also work on sequencing to help have a sustained intelligent practice.

It is about relating anatomical concepts to energetical concepts to make the practice more rich. It's not important which style one is practicing, it applies to all situations, including daily life.

There is a possibility that future teacher trainings will be held with Pablo and this will be discussed at this immersion to determine interest.

Full Description

Pablo Alvarez is an international teacher who is passionate about yoga, music and meditation. He has graduated from the Arts University of Cuba as a professional guitarist. While studying music he got in touch with yoga. First as a way to release tension from the body after long sessions of practice, then it became part of his life. He started teaching as a natural consequence of his practice -- we share what we love. In the past 15 years he has taught in Cuba, Mexico, China, Thailand, India, Malaysia and US where he has offered workshops and teacher trainings. He has written articles and has had a series of television classes.

He trained in Hatha Yoga with the cuban yoga teacher Rudra (Ernesto Carulla). At this time he also practiced Kundalini Yoga. He studied Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Baptiste Marceau. He worked with Larry Schultz in It's Yoga, San Francisco and continues teaching the It's Yoga system. He founded Dharma Yoga Studio in Mexico. Pablo is a Yoga Alliance E-RYT and is also recognized by the International Yoga Federation IYF. He travels every year to the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Center to continue with his studies.

He has also trained with many teachers such as Dharma Mittra, Sharat Arora, Master Ji, Beryl Bender Birch and Swami Maytreyananda among others.

Pablo practices meditation in the Buddhist tradition of the Karma Kagyu Lineage since 2002, receiving blessings and initiations from many important dharma teachers and lamas.

He has extensive training in anatomy, having a deep understanding of the body and the body–mind connection.

He is based in Shanghai, China where he teaches trainings, workshops, yoga classes and continues to pursue his own musical projects.
