Yogi Ludens: The power of play – creative masterclass with Michael Hamilton

Join Michael for this special class that will at times be a call to find your edge in asana practice, at other times your inner child, playfully trying new approaches and creative sequencing, and at other times moving more in the direction of a more informative workshop space where we slow down and take things apart for observation. This masterclass is the first in a series of masterclasses.

Michael Hamilton will teach this first masterclass on Sunday, July 9, 2023 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at AIRYOGA, Fabrikstrasse 10 in 8005 Zürich.

Growing up in apartheid South Africa led Michael to an early interest in the topic of individual and collective hardship and awakened within him the yearning to address and confront the challenges it brings. In his youth it spurned him on to political activism and rebellion, sublimated through studies in art and literature, which additionally offered helpful glimpses into the human condition. The discovery of Buddhism in his twenties brought about dramatic life changes resulting in his departure from the west to the east and long years of studies in yoga and Buddhism in Asia. After discovering satipatthana meditation with its direct application of mindfulness to progressive stages of development, he started studies in short- and long-term retreat formats with Sayday U Vivekananda.
Currently Michael is undergoing a 3-year course in essential psychology, which combines skillful methods developed in psychology with the Buddhism teachings on wisdom, in order to better facilitate development and healing in individuals and small groups. He is deeply grateful to all those that have helped and guided him on his path, particularly Daido Roshi for his acts of kindness, Vivekanada and Baddhamanika for their endless patience, Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor for their insights into approaching practice, Doug Keller for therapeutic body awareness and Wolfgang Erhard and Lama Lhündrup for awakening the Bodhisattva spirit within. Michael lives with his wife Sabine Glück in Ticino, Switzerland.
