We are beyond delighted to have Nicolai Bachman back to Salt Lake City, April 5-7, 2019!
Centered City Yoga was blessed to host Nicolai in 2018. He was well-loved by the students who attended, who were delighted to start to learn the philosophy side of yoga in a beautiful, well-organized way, that helps to deepen the understanding how to move through our yoga practices, and life itself in a kinder, more compassionately inspired way. We truly learn to respond to life, rather than react.
Nicolai has been teaching Sanskrit, chanting, yoga philosophy, Ayurveda, and other related topics since 1994. He has a knack for synthesizing and organizing complex topics into simple and understandable presentations. His education combines informal, traditional study with the academic rigor of university classes. Nicolai studied extensively at the American Sanskrit Institute, the Ayurvedic Institute, the American Institute of Vedic Studies and the Vedic Chant Center. He holds an M.A. in Eastern Philosophy, an M.S. in Nutrition, and an e-RYT 500 certified yoga teacher. His ongoing studies continue to broaden his repertoire and inform all future classes. You can learn more about this amazing human on his website
Nicolai has authored several Sanskrit book/CD learning tools including 108 Sanskrit Flash Cards, The Language of Yoga (Sounds True 2005), The Language of Ayurveda, and The Yoga Sutras: An Essential Guide to the Heart of Yoga Philosophy (Sounds True 2010). He also wrote an easy-to-read paperback on yoga philosophy called Path of the Yoga Sutras (Sounds True 2011). His books are available at Centered City Yoga, and will also be available during Nicolai’s workshop in April at the studio.
Here is what will be offered during this beautiful weekend together:
Friday, April 5th
6-8:30pm Sanskrit Basics
Saturday, April 6th
12-2:30pm Mantra Recitation
3:00-5:30pm Yoga Sutras: Understanding Suffering
Sunday, April 7th
9-11:30 Ayurveda Intro
1-3:30pm Elemental Chakras
Each workshop will be held at our Beautiful Centered City Yoga studio.
We are fortunate that Centered City Yoga will have the opportunity to host Nicolai in Salt Lake City for a 2nd time, as he brings another deep facet to our yoga community. Yoga can be a little evasive for those who haven’t studied much of the philosophy and history, yet Nicolai in myriad ways, creates accessible pathways to all who wish to learn yoga in its fullness, well beyond the postures.
I look forward to sharing time and space with our beautiful yoga community soon.
