Alignment & the Temple of your Body
We are very honored to announce this historical,
international yoga workshop taught by our senior teachers
Gloria Goldberg, US & Gitte Bechsgaard, CA
4 June 2023 I 12:30 – 17:00 I at Skodsborg Kurhotel I by the sea
In this workshop, we will explore the essential concept of
Alignment both in our asana practice & in yoga philosophy
For B. K. S. Iyengar, Alignment was the spirit behind any work with yoga postures and the main principle behind any technique used. Essentially, he brought methods such as the work with points, sequencing and technicalities into practice to bring about an embodied form of concentration.
The aim of asana practice is to create balance and resilience both physically and mentally. B. K. S. Iyengar describes this state as “perfection in action and freedom in consciousness.”(1991) Here, the asana takes on a new meditative form where the inner abiding Self is sought out.
In developing a whole therapeutic approach to Yoga, B. K. S. Iyengar never lost sight of the grounding of yoga in the spiritual tradition. In fact, in the Yogic paradigm, Alignment is connected to an individual’s unique spiritual purpose. The Sanskrit term for this underlying pattern of meaning and purpose is dharma. When we follow this thread of dharma, we are more likely to be at peace and have a sense of contentment (santosha) within.
The workshop is for Iyengar Yoga teachers and students with at least 3 years of experience with Iyengar Yoga – and is taught in English. Read more about the teachers below.
The price includes 4 hours of teachings of asanas, group chanting in sanskrit and philosophy and refreshments for the break – at the beautiful location by the beach and forest – delicately chosen to honor our great teachers.

Gitte Bechsgaard, Phd Psychology, Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher and author, owner of Vidya Institute in Canada, is teaching a 2 hour yoga philosophy class on Alignment as part of the workshop – partly based on her newest book ‘Yoga and Alignment: From the Upanisads to B.K.S.

The ancient, hidden knowledge of Indian yoga philosophy was transmitted to Gitte by her guru Sri Krishan Mantriji – and she has been teaching yoga philosophy globally, especially in North America since 2010.
