Kundalini Yoga Workshop:
September 2017
mit Mina Petersson

We are very happy to invite you to this workshop about releasing body blocks and raising the kundalini energy to clean our system physically and energetically so that our inner light can shine.
Clean your body and let your soul shine through! Mina Petersson (from Barcelona) is coming to Cologne for the first time to give a 2 days Workshop with intense practice of Kundalini Yoga. It is going to be a transformative weekend, where we will experience the benefits of this wonderful technique that gradually opens up spaces within, using powerful sets of exercises (kriyas) and postures to awaken the movement of the vital energy and through conscious breathing and the use of mantras we access our meditative mind. The days around spring equinox are optimal to set new intentions and begin new projects. So this is a great opportunity to find the inspiration to make a change in at least one area of our lives and go for what we really want. The workshop is open to anyone wanting to work on themselves and deepen their connection between body, mind and soul. Appropriate for people new to the practice as well as intermediate and advanced yogis. The techniques of Kundalini Yoga “The yoga of consciousness”, have been used for centuries to give us the ability to understand who we are and what we are capable of. A good thing about this practice is that it takes into account the demands of modern society - full of stimuli and information - allowing us to find balance, manage stress effectively, maximize our creativity and understand a little more where we want to focus our attention in life. The practice of Kundalini Yoga helps to purify and improve the functioning of the body, its organs and glands, and at the same time helps us to define our priorities through meditation and other techniques of mindfulness. We start our practice early in the morning with Kundalini Sadhana to rise up and shine with the sun! We welcome the new day, practicing in order to relax, breathing to release, singing to vibrate, and meditating to flow with the highest consciousness. After breakfast we continue with mantra meditations and practice of kriyas and pranayamas. Through intense practice we can overcome and release perceived limitations and explore our highest potential. Throughout the workshop we constantly turn our attention inwards with the intention of identifying and releasing any set programs or beliefs that can stand in the way of our happiness and harmony. Through meditations in couples we learn how to use relationships as a mirror for self-reflection. And through the chanting of mantras we celebrate the joy of simply being in the present moment!
About Mina Petersson I am a Kundalini yoga teacher, a mantra singer, a sungazer and organizer of “Sun Sun Love Yoga Solstice Festival”. I have travelled around the world and I find inspiration in every new encounter with people. Originally from Sweden but currently living in a small community outside Barcelona, I give classes of Kundalini yoga and mantra singing in Catalunya, and I'm part of the teacher team of the Kundalini yoga Teacher Training at Imagine Acadamy, teaching in Spain and Switzerland. I am also studying Advaita Vedanta and Kashmir Shaivism and above all I am a life long student of life itself! At the age of twenty I traveled for the first time to India. I bumped into yoga and something woke up inside of me. An immense gratitude to life that made me reflect on how I could return something after having received so much. I continued traveling the world looking for answers and learning different ways of living. I had tried various styles of yoga, when one day I took my first class of Kundalini Yoga and I fell in love with this technique that is so powerful in helping us to connect with our essence. A few years later I did the teacher training with my dear teacher Hargobind, who taught me that when we change the way we breathe, our entire life changes ... And I have proven it to be true! The practice of pranayama has helped me to dive deeper into myself, find inner peace and bring Yoga to all parts of my life. When we start to feel that we share the same essence, we become more human, and freer. So we practice Yoga to be free! And I continue learning, every day I practice and sing mantras. For me it's a way of celebrating life. Teaching yoga and meditation, mantras and breathing techniques is an opportunity to share what I have learned, and I am very happy to be able to serve this way. My aim is to inspire! More than anything, I want to inspire you to live your life to the fullest! To celebrate life, to enjoy the blessing of being alive! I am looking forward to share this space with you! Love and Light Sat Nam

Aerial yoga is a technique which bring into play soft and flexible material – a hammock. It helps to strengthen the postural muscles, improves their flexibility and at the same time relieves spine from excessive tension in an intervertebral disc space. In addition Aerial Yoga calms down, thanks to the gentle rocking while performing asanas. Workshops in YOGA INN will be good opportunity to discover both sides of aerial yoga practice – dynamic at the beginning, and static at the end. During this workshop you'll learn a few flying asanas, and then slowly we'll move into sequences a la vinyasa. Yogis who just start adventure with aerial will have opportunity to learn technical aspects of asanas. Advanced students will get more difficult versions of poses. This is going to be dynamic and acrobatic side of the practice. After that you will experience deep relaxation in the hammock with the music, visualization and essential oils. During this session we'll perform therapeutic positions of aerial yoga. It will allow your spine to relax, hips to open, and thoughts to calm down. This is going to be static and calm side of the practice.

Concept AcroContact
Furthermore to the encounter of AcroYoga, a discipline which mixes ancestral arts of Yoga – looking for the connection with the inner one, soft Acrobatics to challenge laws of gravity in community, and Thai Massage to take care of the body and calm the spirit, Mehdi is deepening the investigation by integrating new disciplines (contact ball, juggling, circus, tarot, personal development, reiki…).
He has since then initiated the movement of AcroContact to explore bridges between confluences/ inertia/, the science of movement, of Life, in search of Union between the genders and of mutual benefits in the fusion of the styles, what allows to throw(launch) new proposals of expressions such as AcroSalsa, AcroCapoeira, AcroWingchun, AcroPermaculture...
