Whit Hornsberger (Vancouver, Canada) is a student and teacher of the wisdom traditions of Classical Yoga and Theravada Buddhism.
A former athlete, Whit found the path as a result of a career ending knee injury and the subsequent emotional and mental suffering inherent in losing one’s (supposed) self-identity and self-worth. His daily practice and teaching methods stem from the traditional practices of Vinyasa Krama (Krishnamacharya) and Buddhist meditation (Mahasi Sayadaw). A passionate advocate of traditional teachings, Whit expounds the ancient wisdom of these lineages in a relevant manner, making them readily accessible to students at every stage of the path.
A lover of surf, travel and nature, Whit teaches internationally, offering classes, international workshops, retreats and trainings.
Descripción del Taller
The tradition of Classical Yoga is a contemplative, meditative path, guiding courageous and curious seekers towards the true nature of their enigmatic human existence, giving rise to transformative wisdom and leaving in its wake the fetters of physical and mental suffering.
Over the course of the weekend we will explore the numerous sequences of the Vinyasa Krama method as expounded by the father of modern yoga, Sri T. Krishnamacharya, dissect the psychological framework of the Classical Yoga tradition and apply the most relevant and potent of Patañjali’s Yoga-Sūtras for mental well-being to an extensive, full-spectrum vinyasa practice (asana - pranayama - meditation).
This intensive is created for and accessible to all levels of practitioners and geared specifically towards those individuals with an insatiable curiosity for the enigmatic nature of human existence and a passion to evolve beyond the limitations of the conditioned mind.
