Iyengar – Glenn Ceresoli @ Yoga Yoga

Glenn Ceresoli had a wonderful class yesterday. It was 2 and a half hour of belts, blocks, chair and bolster. I had to look at the other one´s as I have not done Iyengar the last couple of years.

Ceresoli did emphasis how to stay relaxed in the stomach, throat and face during the asana. He did claim that tension in the stomach showed you had difficulty making changes in your life. I often feel I don´t have a totally relaxed stomach, so I often focus on just following my breath in and out through my nose.

Further Ceresoli focused on connecting the body experience to the subtle energies. In Savasana, the last asana, he advocated that the dead mans corps, was about how the yoga practitioner was able to let go of all outward influences. I interpret that as to how non attachment is practiced in the yoga class.

Further, he explained how it all is conciousness and that is all there is.




I invite you to follow my yoga journey as it unfolds day by day. Currently I teach meditation at Yoga for Alle and am doing Jivamukti yoga in Stavanger, Norway.

I have done yoga since 2005, and have taken a 500 hours yoga teacher training in Greece, registered by the Yoga Alliance, in 2017. I did deepen my knowledge of Yoga at the Kriya Yoga Ashram, in Rishikesh, India, this year. It is a meditation Ashram that also has yoga classes every day.

When other studios in my hometown have workshops, with great teachers, I love to go. Today I am going to a Glenn Ceresoli 4 day Iyengar workshop, for the first time.

Apart form yoga my interests are books and travel, so you might expect some posts on that as well. Just for the record I am an economist who has lived on all continents and hope to inspire you to go for the yogic path.
