We are so excited to e-host Gregor Maehle again! This time Gregor will explore the theme of life’s divine purpose, from the prism of yoga and other spiritual traditions. This will be an interactive Live Zoom event, with recordings available for you for 30 days.
Do you remember a time, when you knew that your life would be amazing and that you would live to make a meaningful contribution to life on Earth and the life of others? And then what happened? Somehow our education and the process of enculturation cut us off from this sacred knowledge and élan vital. We became cynics and “realists”.
Since time immemorial human societies were organized around the idea that the life of the individual and of society has divine purpose. This workshop traces this knowledge to indigenous cultures, to the Bhagavad Gita, the Bible and the Yoga Sutra. Our loss of this knowledge is what has led to our environmental destruction and the 6th mass extinction of life as well as the current epidemic of mental disorders.
This workshop not only shows how we lost the knowledge that all life is sacred and purposeful, it also introduces layers of technique to lead us back to finding and gradually implementing our life’s divine purpose.
Gregor is an internationally renowned yoga teacher and author, dedicated to codifying and personally ‘road-testing’ the traditional yoga practices for our benefit and for the benefit of mankind. Gregor is offering an authentic yogic insight, that is in real danger of being lost, as yoga becomes more and more commercialised.
Gregor began his yogic practices forty years ago. In the mid-1980s he commenced annual travels to India, where he studied with various yogic and tantric masters, traditional Indian sadhus and ascetics.
In 1997 Gregor was authorised to teach Ashtanga vinyasa yoga by K. Pattabhi Jois. Since then he has branched out into researching the anatomical alignment of postures and the higher limbs of yoga. He gained his anatomical knowledge through a Health Practitioner degree and has also studied History, Philosophy and Comparative Religion at various universities.
Gregor studied scripture and the higher limbs of Yoga with B.N.S. Iyengar, a student of T. Krishnamacharya, and Sanskrit under Professor Narayanachar and Dr. Chandrasekhar. He lived for several years as a recluse, studying Sanskrit, yogic scripture, and practising yogic techniques. Together with his wife, Monica Gauci, in 1996 he founded ‘8 Limbs’ in Perth, Australia.
Gregor’s internationally acclaimed textbook series consists of:
Gregor’s books have sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide and have been translated into seven foreign languages so far. Further volumes are in progress.
Gregor Maehle has been invited to many countries to teach and has contributed to and been interviewed by numerous yoga magazines.
Today Gregor teaches an anatomically sophisticated interpretation of traditional vinyasa yoga, integrated into the practice of the higher limbs of yoga in the spirit of Patanjali and T. Krishnamacharya. His zany sense of humour, his manifold personal experiences, and his vast and deep knowledge of scripture, Indian philosophies and yogic techniques – combine to make his teachings applicable, relevant and easily accessible to all his students.
