About the Event
INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY MASTERCLASS
TRANSCEND LIFE THROUGH KLESHA
For this year's International Yoga Day we invited the advanced teacher Krishna Kumar to share a special masterclass on the ancient traditions of yoga. This unique deep dive to the roots of Yoga is a combination of practical exercises like breathing techniques, meditation and movement as well as a philosophical excursion on the Yoga Sutras. Both will support the upbringing of your personal development and self-discovery along the yogic path. The view and understanding of the yogic philosophy will allow you to evolve deeper into the yogic practice.
Be inspired and challenged! It is a wonderful opportunity to meet a traditional Indian yoga teacher, ask all your questions and connect deeply with the wisdom of yoga.
This masterclass "Transcend life through Klesha" will focus on the classic concept of the five "Kleshas". The Sanskrit word "Klesha" translates to “poison” or “affliction.” A term used to describe specific negative mental patterns that obscure the mind and cause suffering. We are all born with these Kleshas, yet with awareness and dedicated practice, we can outgrow our intrinsic afflictions. The first step is to understand the Kleshas and then putting in our effort to transcend them.
The five Kleshas are:
i. Avidya: Ignorance or not knowing the true nature of reality
ii. Asmita: I-ness or Identification with a false sense of self
iii. Raga: Attachment to objects of desire
iv. Dvesha: Aversion of things ones don’t want
v. Abhinivesah: The fear of death

ABOUT KRISHNA KUMAR
Krishna Kumar Krishnan, Yogamunīśvaradāsa grew up in a yogic family jn South India. At the age of 7, he was initiated into spirituality and Haṭhayoga Sādhana by his father,ācārya y.m.ī.d. Krishnan Ramasamy, who was a priest, astrologer and siddhayogiina Tamil Saiva Siddhānta tradition. At the age of 25, he pursued his higher studies in Aerospace Engineering in Munich, Germany, and worked as a scientific researcher in Madrid, Copenhagen and Berlin. His experience of western lifestyles reinforced his belief in the importance of yoga and mindfulness training. He began exploring applying yogic philosophy as a holistic approach to life, for a balanced, healthy and sustainable life in the modern world.
He combines the essence of Siddhayoga knowledge from his father with Kunḍalinīyoga, from Yogācārya Paranjothi Subramaniam, with the addition of mindfulness, awareness and meditation techniques from Tibetan master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. He also studied for 4 years at Yoga Akademie Berlin under the guidance of Yogācārya Ananda Leone, became a registered member of the Berufsverband der Yogalehrenden Deutschland (BDY) and the European Yoga Union (EYU). His yoga path has brought him to the realisation that different yoga practices suit different people, and he explores his own yoga practice with acceptance, curiosity and joy. Krishna is known for his sense of humour and dynamic teaching style, and his ability to present the ancient wisdom of Saiva Siddhānta in a fresh and accessible way.
