Ashtanga Yoga Berlin Mysore Challenge 2018 @ Ashtanga Yoga Berlin

What is the AYB Mysore Challenge?

With the many things we do in life it can be difficult to maintain a daily Yoga practice for many of us.

It has become an annual tradition for us to invite all practitioners to challenge themselves, to try to get out of the comfort zone. The challenge is for you to try practicing as if you were in Mysore, practically every day for at least 4 week.

Right after the challenge you should keep the momementum and sign up for Grischa's Easter Ashtanga Intensive @ AYB (20-22 April)

Questions or registration by email or at the studio.

Go beyond! The challenge of self-inquiry - "what can I do?"

We all know that donations can never be enough. Shouldn't we - as Yoga practitioners - do more and change our own lifestyle?

Nobody can be perfect, but we know that each one of us must improve.

What am I eating? How much am I shopping? How much energy am I wasting? Am I buying fair and sustainable products? Am I travelling just for fun or do I really have to? What could be done with the money and energy instead?

Let's all begin the new year extra mindful and observe ourselves objectively rather than judging others. Let's be honest with ourselves!

Inner and outer transformation

Daily Yoga practice is self-transformative - if done mindfully! A self-transformation based on ethic principles (e.g. the 5 yama-s listed in Patañjali Yoga Sutra) is your small but not meaningless contribution to a better world.

"Anyone can practice. Young man can practice. Old man can practice. Very old man can practice. Man who is sick, he can practice. Man who doesn't have strength can practice. Except lazy people; lazy people can't practice ashtanga yoga." (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois)
