Ancient Tools for Modern Living: Applying Yogic Philosophy.
July 1, 2021 @ 18:00 - 19:30 CEST
The definition of yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. This is the ability to drown out the noise around you in order to stay in balance with your true self despite the changes and fluctuations you may encounter in life. As we have all been witness to recently with the global pandemic, the only thing inevitable about life is change.
Our true power lies in our ability to adapt and manage changes or fluctuation. Contrary to popular belief Yoga is not only performed on your mat but off the mat as well.
The 8 limbs of yoga within the yoga sutras by Patanjali acts as guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. The limbs serve as a prescription for moral and ethical conduct and self-discipline; they direct attention toward one’s health; and they help us to acknowledge the spiritual aspects of our nature. These limbs and tools can be applied to modern living
In this session, we will explore how each limb of yoga can be paired with a modern reality as a way of performing yoga off the mat and as a blueprint for self development.

Tendai Angela Jambga-Rokkones
Tendai is a Zimbabwean born 200hr certified yoga teacher living in Trondheim, Norway; her journey into yoga began in 2003. This culminated to her work in Zimbabwe where she led workshops, classes, discussions’ and programs for diplomatic agencies, children’s homes, a film for Fashion Revolution, Tamba Africa Circus, TEDXHarare, women’s groups and her community.
Tendai believes that yoga is embodied on and off the mat as a lifestyle that is accessible to any one and by using the tools yoga prescribes one can lead a fulfilled life. Drawing from the teachings of the sutras by Patanjali, Yogananda, BKS Iyengar, David Frawley and the Bhagavad Gita Tendai weaves in ancient wisdom, self inquiry, subtle body anatomy and modern scientific research into her vinyasa, yin and yoga nidra classes that have been described by students as ‘deeply inspiring, nourishing and emotional’, ‘returning home to your self with clarity’ and ‘not simply a class but an experience that explores the whole; body, mind and soul’.
