About Birgit Approach Schedule Workshops

The eight limbs of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras built the foundation of the Yoga practice (II.29). This practice includes physical movements (asanas), breathing techniques and the awareness of the flow of energy, prana (pranayama), develops the ability to withdraw the senses of perception inwardly (pratyahara); means to detach from outer world objects which continuously distract from the present moment; concentration (dharana) comes with ease and from this point the depth of meditation (dhyana) can be experienced into a state of even vision or neutralization (samadhi). All previous aspects should be practiced with the attentiveness to the 5 yamas (universal principles) and the 5 niyamas (personal observances). Please read “Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali” by B.K.S Iyengar. Yoga offers the marvelous and glorious opportunity to enhance the quality of life. Through life-long, regular, ardent and devotional practice of this science, philosophy and system of health the embodiment of body, mind, consciousness and ego is transformed for the betterment of the self. Sensitivity, sincerity, sanctity, inner balance, equanimity and clarity infuse the whole being.

As we practice, the focal points are multifaceted. We embark on a magnificent physical, physiological, mental, emotional, psychological, intellectual and spiritual journey.
