Vinyasa Class & Workshop with Cat Alip-Douglas

Starts on Friday, 11/08/2019
Price from 35.00 €


From the fashion floors of Condé Nast in New York to the wooden floors of Sangyé Yoga School, Cat had officially traded in her Manolo Blahniks for a more 'grounded' approach to bare feet.

Cat is originally from New York City and has been calling London home since spring 2004. She feels very privileged to have been involved with the previous incarnation of Sangyé Yoga School from its inception (as Jivamukti Yoga London 2005-2015) and as it continues in its current form with more of a Buddhist influence. Always with gratitude to Manizeh Rimer, JYL Founder, for seeing the best in her and providing the opportunity to serve students in different roles.
 Advanced Certified Teacher (Jivamukti), Senior Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance UK) and Co-Director of Sangyé Yoga School in London alongside Phil. 

LOVE & GRATITUDE: the husband and the best friend ever phil, the parents, the teachers – all of them and in their many forms, the students for willingly showing up every time, the notorious biggie smalls the sausage dog & oscar wilde the wiener…and this life for all it has introduced thus far.

WORKSHOP / CLASSES AT ROOTS Both workshops will revolve around the Mahayana Buddhist bodhisattva principle (bodhi = awake/sattva = being). Each workshop will integrate a challenging yet mindful vinyasa practice with a philosophical theme as titled below. While one can be attended on its own, attending both would be a relative and complementary experience.

Friday evening workshop: philosophy: bodhisattva avalokitesvara & Saturday workshop: philosophy: bodhisattva tara

“Many Mahayana scriptures speak of inviting all sentient beings as our guests. When we invite a guest, we have a sense of the importance of that relationship. Guests are usually fed specially cooked food and receive extra hospitality. The life of a bodhisattva is relating with all sentient beings as guests. The bodhisattva invites everyone as a guest, constantly offering a feast.

Inviting all sentient beings as our guests is the starting point of applying compassion in the Mahayana. By viewing sentient beings as guests, the bodhisattva has a constant sense of the impermanence of the relationship, because eventually all guests leave. So we view the time with our guests as precious. There is a sense of the preciousness and the impermanence of the relationship. Our guest may be our husband, our wife, or our child—everybody is the guest of everybody, constantly. On a day to day level, all relationships for a bodhisattva are based on relating with guests.”  Chögyam Trungpa
