Danny Paradise in Vienna 13.–15.10.2017

a per­son­al note:

I first met Dan­ny in the old and sweaty chang­ing room of a gym in a pri­ma­ry school. Dan­ny taught an eager group of stu­dents and kept teas­ing “one more?”, the class went on for­ev­er, I was amazed. Back then Dan­ny had been trav­el­ling the world and shar­ing the prac­tices of yoga and his ever­growin insights into life for well more than 20 years. Since then I had the plea­sure of meet­ing him around the globe reg­u­lar­ly and I am tru­ly hap­py to wel­come him to Vien­na this year, don‘t miss!!!

Dan­ny Par­adise has been prac­tis­ing Ash­tan­ga Yoga since 1976 and teach­ing world­wide since 1979. He ini­tial­ly stud­ied with the first West­ern teach­ers of Ash­tan­ga, David Williams and Nan­cy Gilgoff. Dan­ny learned the begin­ning and advanced sequences from them over five years and has stud­ied with Sri Patabb­hi Jois in 1978 and 1980. Dan­ny has also stud­ied and prac­ticed with Yoga teach­ers and Spir­i­tu­al guides in many oth­er lin­eages and tra­di­tions as well as teach­ers of Kung fu, Tai Chi and Karate.

SINCE 1979 Dan­ny has intro­duced all lev­els of the prac­tices of Ash­tan­ga Yoga to stu­dents and teach­ers in 40 coun­tries. He has also intro­duced the Ash­tan­ga prac­tices to world renowned artists, musi­cians, dancers, Bud­dhist Lamas, actors, film direc­tors and sports cham­pi­ons. He incor­po­rates indige­nous spir­i­tu­al tra­di­tions into the prac­tice and phi­los­o­phy of Yoga, relat­ing Yoga to all Shaman­ic nature-based cul­tures. 

Dan­ny draws from the teach­ings of Krish­na­mur­ti, Mar­i­anne Williamson, Car­o­line Myss, Bud­dha, ancient Egypt as well as many Indige­nous nature based cul­tures.
Dan­ny pass­es on ancient tra­di­tions in a non-dog­mat­ic, con­tem­po­rary, com­pas­sion­ate, humor­ous way. His objec­tive is to help guide peo­ple to evo­lu­tion­ary con­scious­ness as well as to help peo­ple devel­op a Sacred, safe, med­i­ta­tive, heal­ing, joy­ful, expand­ing, pain free, per­son­al self-practice.
