Ethics of being a Yogi / Yogini with Magdalena Potipa

Ethics of being a Yogi : concepts and misconceptions surrounding this topic

In this workshop  Magdi will examine and challenge the concepts and the misconceptions surrounding the life of a Yogic student and teacher and also look at the Ethics and moral in a Yoga Teacher - Student Relationship.

What is a Yogi?
How should a Yogi behave? Talk? Live?
What does it mean to live a Yogic life?
Can a Yogi/ Yogini have a drink and still be considered a yogi?
Can a Yogi / Yogini be good\or bad?

In a teaching environment many challenging and confronting situations can and will arise. Some may trigger us more than others and feelings like anger, sadness, impatience, frustration, sexual attraction, may arise within us or our students.
During this workshop we will discuss common situations and dynamics and look at techniques and tools to handle these scenarios and emotions in a professional and constructive manner.

By understanding and becoming aware of our personal point of view and reactions, we can develop grounded and professional answers, even in the most challenging situations.

Some of the topics we will discuss include:
1. What and Who is a Yogi / Yogini?
2. Your own thoughts, fears or concerns
3. A student cries during or after class
4. A sexual attraction between student and teacher
5. A student refuses to follow the teachers instructions
6. A student disturbs the rest of the class

About Magdalena Potipa: "I have dedicated the past 30 years to teaching in matters and questions concerning spirituality and guidance."
Magdi Potipa is a well renowned holistic therapist, Shiatsu and Reiki Master. She has a background in clinical psychotherapy but felt that talking wasn't enough to heal on all levels. Over the past 30 years she has developed her own method to heal body, mind and spirit.

Magdi will be offering four workshops and we highly recommend booking for all, as they are interconnected:

1st workshop (The ethics of being a yogi/yogini) focuses on becoming aware of the value of our judgments, our outlook on ourselves, on others and life itself. This is probably an old programed pattern and the way we perceive our world. This will of course be our reality/truths. If these thought patterns are negative, they will debilitate you on all levels of you.

2nd workshop (How you can heal yourself) is to give you simple tools to heal your language, but accept that awareness is a precondition to heal. If you are not aware of cause and effect, you can't heal. The healing meditation is short but very powerful and can be used anytime you wish, when wanting to transform or heal old feelings or pain.


3rd workshop (Recapture your power as a female) is about our journey on earth as females and how we have been programmed to see ourselves, how we have accepted to value ourselves from a male's perspective. This is strongly ingrained in our DNA. Magdi will guide a healing and cleansing meditation that also can be repeated at home.


4th workshop (Get to know your chakras) is about a specific energy body, our Chakras and how imbalance can affect us in our every day lives, the importance of cleaning our Chakras, just as we clean ourselves physically by taking a shower. Together we will meditate to balance each Chakra individually and program new healthy and loving invocations for becoming more of our true selves.
