EVENT ÜBERBLICK The Art of Awakening

Katchie unterrichtet in leicht verständlichem Englisch und Schweizerdeutsch. Und schreibt uns über den Workshop:


Yoga can be approached as an endless effort to perfect the body, or it can be done to liberate the body in order to find a shortcut to Spirit. Come and join Katchie Ananda for a fiesta of the body through yoga, dharma, and soma.


We will use yoga to unlock tension in our innocent little creature body and to delight in our senses. We will use techniques of dharma to deal with emotions, wisely, and to train the mind.


Learn how to become a master weaver of your life’s tapestry with wisdom and grace.

“The Church says: the body is a sin.

Science says: the body is a machine.

Advertising says: The body is a business.

The Body says: I am a fiesta.”


- Eduardo Galeano


MEHR ÜBER The Art of Awakening – Yoga = Soma with Katchie Ananda

Yoga = Soma

Experience the blissful nature of authentic yoga through somatic movement, stories, mudras and mantras.

Katchie Ananda hat verschiedene Yoga Stile wie Jivamukti Yoga, Asthanga Yoga und Anusara Yoga in ihrer Praxis perfektioniert und mit ihrer Praxis der buddhistischen Dharma Lehre kombiniert. Daraus ist eine Unterricht Stil entstanden, mit dem Ziel dem Körper Wohlbefinden zurück zu geben, den Geist zu beruhigen und zu schulen und das Herz zu öffnen. Katchie schreibt dazu:

Why: To remember our true nature and what actually matters. To heal ourselves, our connection to our body, and our planet. To connect with our authentic purpose and make a difference. To live with joy and inner freedom. 

What: yoga, dharma, shamanism 

The yoga is katchie’s own blend of practices, accumulated over 30 years, drawing on anusara, vinyasa yoga and some somatics. The dharma is based on buddhist psychology as taught by katchie’s friend and mentor, jack kornfield. Shamanism is a  practice to tap into the subconscious mind to connect with the sacred mystery of life. 

How: By dedication and service to the student’s evolution and personal edge of transformation. Through skillful use of hatha yoga (asana, pranayama and meditation) savvy technical alignment cues, quirky humor and touching stories, and, by personal attention.


Katchie ist eine international bekannte Yogalehrerin, mit viel Charme und Witz. Sie hat eine ganz authentischen Art zu unterrichten, mit über 25 Jahren Erfahrung im Unterrichten. Und sie ist in der Region Bern/Thun aufgewachsen, deshalb freuen wir uns um so mehr sie wieder bei uns im Riveryoga für eine Master Klasse zu begrüssen!
