Cedric Stein - yoga teachings and courses
You will learn with me a yoga practice that I have gathered from:
- a variety of teachers from all over the world
- my own experiences over the years.
Yoga, for me, is a way of living - the path to myself. As a result, I want to inspire and encourage you to discover this self in all its facets so you can live your true nature, your full potential to the fullest without compromise, every day.
To understand and embody this, I had to go on quite a long and sometimes rough journey. This journey led me through different countries, inner worlds, old habits, and also some painful moments.
My yoga teachings include the spiritual foundation of:
- Master "Sri Aurobindo" and "The Mother" from India
- Rudolf Steiner
- Ekhart Tolle from Germany
- the asanas and movement teachings of Anusara Yoga, Vinyasa, and Ashtanga Yoga.
To put all the above into numbers, Cedric Stein has 700-800 hours of yoga teachings.
In addition, I have experienced and learned Yin Yoga as a very healing practice with TJ Maher from New York. I have also been inspired by Elea Gisele to bring Yin and Yang together as a holistic practice.
Meditation as a foundation
Although I did a Vipassana (Intensive Meditation Practice) for children when I was 7, I didn't really understand it at the time. Much later, I was able to do another Vipassana, (10-day silence in meditation), which showed me new inner worlds. I am very grateful for this experience.
More specifically, I started discovering and practicing meditation myself when I was 24 years old in Brazil - and after many breaks and much struggling, I had found my initiation into Kriya Yoga, by Swami Atmananda from India, as an initial spark back into a regular meditation practice.
I teach meditation and mindfulness as the basis for successful yoga practice and conscious life.
I would like to meet you as a teacher at eye level because that is how I was taught yoga by my teachers - hereby I thank Sophia Wahdat, Christina Lobe, Sudhir Rishi, Swami Atmananda, Joanna Vladescu, Alan Ellman, TJ Maher, Octavio Salvado, Elea Gisele and especially my partner Athina Tamaresi, who teaches me yoga every day off the mat.
The power of yoga.
With me, you will learn that your body is a mirror of your being. Therefore, appropriate movement, stretching, strengthening, and concentration can be powerful and healing.
You learn with me how we are made up of more than the body, what prana (life force) is, how to activate it and use it for ourselves. I want to bring my students into the experience that we are a multi-layered being, consisting of the physical body, emotions, mind, and soul - and how we bring this into healthy balance through yoga.
My passion is meditation and yogic philosophy coupled with modern approaches to truthful communication.
Along with my partner, Athena Tamaresi, we founded the yoga school and retreat center INEA YOGA in Corfu, Greece. We teach regular classes, workshops, yoga teacher training, and yoga retreats. Furthermore, I also teach yoga in German and English language.
As a teacher I don't want to convince you of something, I want to create a safe space for you, offering ideas, tools, and movements, where you can discover and experience your Self.
In addition, I have years of experience in martial arts, such as Ju-Jutsu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Capoeira, and Kickboxing.
