Basic Vinyasa Flow mit Chanting

This late evening class combines gentle Vinyasa Yoga with another element of the rich tradition of T. Krishnamacharya: Chanting.
This class has a calm and meditative character. At the beginning we use the OM (or AUM) Mantra. The vibration of your voice, the long exhale breath and the concentration on the mantra brings your mind into a calm and centered state. We continue with a flowing and gentle Vinyasa practice. Then, we chant the Gayatri Mantra while moving our bodies and synchronize our breath. Towards the end of the class, in a meditation exercise, we also chant the mantra for the energy centers of the body (Bija Mantra for the Chakras). There are many moments of stillness and silence in this class to experience the effect of the practice on your mind.

This class is suitable for all levels. No previous experience in singing is required (Everybody can chant!).

Adrian Wirth

After completing his studies in Environmental Science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Adrian lived for one year in Vancouver, Canada. It was there he was first introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vipassana Meditation in 2002. In the following years Adrian's Yoga practice consisted in the regular practice of the Primary Series. Due to deep experiences with Vipassana meditation and with teacher plants, spirituality and self-transformation began to take a more important role in Adrian's life. This led him to travel to India, where he spent one year teaching Tibetan monks chemistry and biology, practicing asana on the roof of the Buddhist monastery, and diving deeper into eastern spiritual teachings. Currently his main focus is with Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Meditation. Adrian completed his yoga teacher training with Remo Rittiner in Zurich. Adrian's classes follow the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya, and are tailored to the student's needs. Dynamic Vinyasa Flow yoga, as well as gentle Ayur Yoga, fit perfectly well into his teaching repertoire. He is using elements like chanting, Yoga-Nidra or simple visualisations in his classes. With his scientific background, he understands well to build bridges between the old yogic wisdom and our modern worldview. Adrian teaches in German and English. He lives with his wife and son in Zurich. For more information please see www.oshadi-yoga.ch
