Body/Mind Breath Immersion with Jutta Hecht

Jutta Hecth

This eight week immersion is based on the teachings of my beloved teachers, A.G. Mohan and his wife Indra, who spent 18 years studying directly with Krishnamacharya. These classes are also based on my own practice of over 20 years in these teachings, combined with the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda. You will be led through a deep inner experience based on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, which will promote transformation of the mind. Asana practice then becomes the eight limbs, and is not just a limb by itself or another mechanical tool, which leave a lot of people with injuries. We will learn a complete body/mind/breath immersion. The goal is to reach a state of sattva, meaning clarity, steadiness, and peace of mind, with a light feeling in the body. Your body and your actions in daily life then become a prayer to the Divine. These classes are not your typical yoga work out, but rather a “work-in”.

This class has been opened to 20 people, and we can not accommodate drop ins as these eight classes will truly build on each other. Because of the limited enrollment, any cancellation after February 1st will result in a $60.00 cancellation fee. The classes are for all levels.

Please bring a notebook and a yoga mat.

The Yoga Mandiram™ (YM) was founded in 2001 as a sanctuary for those interested in using the wisdom of yoga to illuminate the universal spiritual principles of life, and greatly alleviate unnecessary pain and stress. We are a semi-private, single room yoga shala that specializes in giving personal attention to each student. Our classes, workshops and retreats all include teaching the student how to meditate and enjoy moving the body with the breath (vinyasa) in a safe, life-affirming fashion. The use of yoga props, mantra (chanting), educational videos and literature is common place in our classes. Based in the Raja Yoga tradition, we also use pranayama, mudra, drishti and bandha in our practice. We are not politically associated with any other style of yoga but enjoy the company and friendship of many different styles here at the Shala. The Shala is kept at a comfortable room tempeature of 24 ºC (75 ºF). The Yoga Mandiram is blessed with a spectacular view of the ocean including some of the world's most hypnotizing sunsets, fantastic restaurants and North County's unparalleled Seaside Market. All within walking distance of the Yoga Mandiram, the beach and our spectacular Glen Park. Dennis Dean is the founder and director of the Yoga Mandiram, with over 30 years of passionate teaching experience. In addition to his knowledge and teaching skills, he is known for his sense of humor, open heart and great hugs. The Yoga Mandiram is the forth yoga shala Dennis has built and the third that he has owned.
