This course aims to articulate and clarify the many references to yoga. We will look at the principle texts and investigate how a greater understanding of yoga can refine our behaviour, enrich our lives and improve our teaching skills. We will examine what yoga is and learn practical tools to integrate it and technical terms, methodologies and expressions to clarify our communication of it.
Different types of Pranayama will be our main study and practice. Their reference in the Hatha Yoga literature and how it effects the mind, body and nervous system in different ways. You will learn various practices for greater relaxation, how to heal imbalances and improve higher states of concentration. In a safe and methodical manner, you will learn basic pranayama techniques to integrate in your own practice and share with your competent students.
In 2015, Alexander took over what was then known as “Nøsen Fjellstue”, and started to transform it into Nøsen Yoga Mountain Retreat. The building was, at the time, in ruins. Today, the lodge can host up to 100 guests, and combines a distinct mountain feel and Norwegian touch, with a Yogic style and value-set.
Alexander has been teaching Yoga around the world for over 20 years. In 2002, he became certified by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois from Mysore, India. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) developed the style of Vinyasa Yoga known as Ashtanga. Only 35 people worldwide have obtained the certification as Ashtanga teachers by Pattabhi Jois, Alexander being one of them.
With a Master’s degree in Sanskrit and Indian religions and spending many years studying in India, he regularly writes about Yoga and many of his articles have been published in leading, international journals about Yoga. He translated the Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita to Norwegian.
Running the foundation “Yoga for Life”, he has launched and continues running projects, such as “Gangster Yoga” and “Back in the ring”, helping people who have “fallen out” of society and giving them the opportunity to build themselves up again, through a solid Yoga practice, heightened sense of responsibility and social work.
