Course structure


Open your mind to fundamental concepts of yoga from a philosophical point of view.

You are invited to find the space within you to explore these ancestral concepts as possibilities, without the commitment to believe, nor to come to any conclusions. 

 

What you will learn:

  • The goal of a yoga practice
  • The purpose of theory in your daily practice
  • The objective of meditation in yoga
  • Subtle but fundamental differences between Sankhya and yoga

 

Some of the concepts you will uncover:

  • The creation of the Universe according to yoga philosophies
  • The four dimensions of human existence
  • Karma, Samskaras and reincarnation
  • Prana, Nadis and Chakras
  • Yin and Yang

 

Anat approaches each idea from an ancestral Eastern perspective, without losing sight of recent Western discoveries, and makes difficult concepts accessible for everyone.

Her sincere teachings convey the comfort, inspiration and joy that yoga philosophy brings into her life.

 

Each class ends with a Q&A session, answering practical questions such as:

  • The difference between attention and concentration
  • How long should we meditate for?
  • The ethics of meditation

Anat Geiger


Anat Geiger threads science, spirituality, philosophy teachings and chakra theory through her teaching, combining Yang elements of strength and rhythm with Yin elements of kindness and silence.

After a 25-year career in performance arts, Anat studied intensively with Teresa Caldas and Dona Holleman, following both their yoga teacher trainer programs. They gave her priceless insights into alignment, precision, therapeutics, clarity and intent.

In 2009 Anat met Paul and Suzee Grilley and began studying Yin Yoga, Chakra Theory and Meditation and Philosophy. Through Paul and Suzee, Anat found new and unexpected possibilities. She discovered that our bodies are fundamentally different and alignment varies from person to person. She learned that science and spirituality enrich and benefit each other and that we need strength, movement and fierceness, as well as kindness, acceptance and stillness: Yang and Yin. Anat continues to study with Paul and Suzee and is one of their main assistants.
