Heart of Yoga Workshop
Mark Whitwell

Your Breath is the Guru

Have you ever wondered about the specific way of breathing in one of our yoga classes? Take your chance to meet our teacher, Mark Whitwell, who shared this comforting way of breathing with us in 2012. Many times since then, he has visited Mainz for a workshop and teacher training, and we are more than happy, to host im again this year!

The workshop will include Satsang (talk), asana, pranayama and rest.

Sunday, April 30th 2023 14:00-16:30 h "Your breath is the Guru"

Please book via Eversports (klick on link).


Find the core of your yoga practice

"Your breath is your guru - obey your guru!“

T. Krishnamacharya, 'grandfather' of modern yoga


What did Krishnamacharya mean by this? Join Mark Whitwell, who first met Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar in 1973, to explore this in your personal practice and perhaps your teaching. Together we will refine and deepen the pure pleasure of the breath.

Go deep into the precise breath principles from the tradition that transform asana from physical movement alone to profound intimacy with our body, breath and life. "Whole-body prayer to Life." From an external experience to an internal experience — or perhaps more accurately, dissolving any distinction between within and without. Removing the struggle.

Those who have studied before with Mark know that he wears his 50 years of experience lightly, teaching through friendly engaged dialogue and gentle accessible sequences that nonetheless take us powerfully and deeply into the beauty of our own direct experience.

This workshop is suitable for both those developing or rediscovering a home practice and those with years of experience practicing and teaching.

By the end you will feel nurtured and confident in how to listen deeply to the wisdom of your own breath and make it the centre of your practice, and share this with others.
