Digital Detox Workshop in Munich
2:00 PM14:00

Digital Detox Workshop in Munich

We all know what our devices can do for us, but do we know what they do to us? Technology
today is literally reshaping our brains and our mental and emotional capacities. 

As yoga practitioners we’re interested in raising our consciousness, not decreasing it, we
need to know how technology is affecting the ability to cultivate a truly fulfilled and engage life. 
In this
Workshop, you will get to know some of the scientifically proven effects technology addiction is having on you and your loved ones. You will also be given some practical exercises to help overcome the compulsion to spend so much time on your devices.

In this two hour workshop, Cherryl will lead you through some practical tools to help create healthier habits around the use of your device, as well as lead a fun and intense dharmaKaya yoga practice focussing on reducing the symptoms of ‘Tech Neck’ – expect shoulder opening and back bending sequences to open the heart and as a result, your vision!

A Few Facts about technology addiction:

- A drunk driver is actually safer than a texting driver
- A stoned worker is more productive than one who is trying to get the same task done
while multitasking
- 89% of American adults said that they took out a phone during their last social
interaction and 82% of them said that it deteriorated the conversation
- We are losing our ability to have empathy, which poses an ethical issue for society!
- People report greater difficulties with in-person socializing. Making eye contact is
becoming a huge challenge for many people.
- We are becoming a multitasking culture due to an abundance of technologies and
devices, but it is actually damaging our productivity and the quality of our work!
- The human attention span has fallen from an average of 12 seconds in the year 2000
to just eight seconds today. 

As a freelance yoga teacher, mindfulness coach and author, a lot of my work is done from my laptop and phone on the go, and I was shocked to learn how many hours a day I spent on my devices and how little time I was spending nurturing real life relationships, how much less time I spent doing the things I love like reading actual books, taking long walks , meditating , listening to music (just listening), walking through cities (just walking) to name just a few and more shockingly how much more productive I could be if I could use my devices with more awareness.
So I put myself to the challenge and created some very useful guidelines that have now become my rule book which has made me much more productive, much more engaged in my life plus I even find myself having extra time!! I’ve even started writing another book – it’s almost like I’m rediscovering the world again. It sounds radical, but I know I’m not alone. 
This workshop is designed to share with you what I’ve learnt and bring you along for the ride.
Let’s get real, let’s go more analogue. – Cherryl Duncan

An internationally trained and recognised teacher of yoga, eastern philosophy and a catalyst for authentic living and expression, Cherryl created her own method of yoga called dharmaKaya.

** Please note that the course is held in English but full German transcript and audio classes are available. Also, the student can teach in German, ask questions in German and still receive all the relevant information. All of the dharmaKaya® trainings so far have been taken by German speaking students.


The dharmakaya is the emptiness and omniscience of a Buddha’s mind. It is the result of the collection of wisdom. In the dharmaKaya Yoga method, we incorporate the wisdom as well as the compassion teachings of the Buddha to cultivate an elevated state of mind; as close to the Buddha’s mind as possible.

Practically speaking, it is a system of slow, controlled movements that always include elements of energy work, breath, philosophy and meditation.

dharmaKaya Yoga has authenticity at the heart of its teaching. The goal is to teach people to get real about who they are, to love who they really are and to express who they really are. Everyone has a unique and important voice to share, everyone has a specific path and purpose that, when realised results in a deeply fulfilling, rich and rewarding life. It’s only when we stop living the life we were expected to live that we can truly live the life we were meant to live.

Everyone can be a yoga teacher, but not everyone can know what their purpose is and better yet, communicate that purpose. If you’ve ever wondered what it is you have to say, or have something to say but don’t know how to communicate it, then this training is for you.

dharmaKaya Yoga is an intensely physical and spiritually focused practice. The practice is best described as deep, slow and sensual. Sensual in that the student is encouraged to focus intensely on the different sensations that arise throughout the practice. It is in this way, that the practice goes from being a regular form of exercise, to a deeply intimate and personal transformative experience. There is a strong focus on breath as it is through the breath that we are able to feel.

The practice challenges students to stay present with all sensation, with all thought and with all feeling. The student learns how to not judge, criticize, or analyze themselves but instead, to open up to pure experience. This results in a gradual letting go of old patterned behaviors that may be holding the student back. DharmaKaya Yoga builds confidence, willpower and concentration. The student learns how to practice in a way that is deeply introspective and authentic, leading to a life more authentically expressed.


By the end of the training, students will be able to effectively teach a full 90 minutes dharmaKaya Yoga class with self-confidence. In this training, students learn how to become teachers who inspire with an authentic voice. For this to happen, students will go through a process of self investigation and will be challenged physically and emotionally.

The training is about learning how to teach others Yoga, but also about how to use the experiences from the student’s own life, to help and benefit the students they will go on to teach.

It is about understanding the potential teacher’s strengths and perceived limitations to be an effective communicator and an authentic ambassador for living a Yogic (I.e more compassionate and connected) life.

The training is therefore deeply transformational and an attempt to awaken the student to their life’s purpose which in the end may or may not be, to be a Yoga teacher.

It is therefore not only for those wanting to teach, but those wanting to learn how to integrate the practice of Yoga into their everyday life.

I will be presenting at the 2018 Elysia Yoga Convention on the exquisite island of Amorgos in Greece . Join me and an inspiring community of yogis and friends of yogis from around the world for this annual event. I was there last year, at the first one ever, and had such a good time I decided to host my October 2017 retreat there. Now the island is drawing me back. If you're interested in coming along with me, then email me directly cherryl@cherrylduncan.com to see if its for you.


A bit about Amorgos and ELYSIA

Back in ancient times, poets like Homer, Pindar and Hesiod described the Champs Elysées (Elysian Fields) in their texts as an idyllic, beautiful and peaceful place where the souls of the fortuned arrived there, and had the opportunity to enjoy and feel the absolute euphoria. It was a divine place "with blooming meadows, where there was eternal spring, and sources of Lethe gushing nectar”. According to mythology it was there, that Menelaus and Beautiful Helen, kings and several heroes were exercising and playing music while dancing under the shade of big beautiful trees. Inspired by these heavenly places that the word Elysia refers to, we decided to gather people of the Yoga Community and unite them on an island which has now established itself as a Yoga Retreat destination. Amorgos is an island blessed with natural beauty and magnificent sceneries, in a way being the Elysian island of today.

Honorary Yoga teachers from all over the world will be the presenters while professionals from different areas of the Wellness field (nutritionists, life-coaches, therapists) are expected to join and contribute to this exciting opportunity of exchanging knowledge. to join and contribute to this exciting opportunity of exchanging knowledge. Our mission is a contiguous sharing of new ideas and practices in a dynamic learning environment of spiritual transformation and transition in nature. Elysia aims to bring together the world of Yoga and provide the chance to demonstrate innovative ways to adopt and integrate a healthier lifestyle for mental and physical well being. The selected discussion topics intend to the emersion of new ideas that will inspire the participants make an impact and perhaps, introduce new practices in their home country.

Amorgos is one of the main motivating factors for the organization of this Yoga Convention. It is an island located in the east of the Aegean Sea and is well known for its strong magnetic field as well as the revitalizing energy nobody can overlook.

Its purity of biodiversity and variety of therapeutic herbs make it the ideal combination for a spiritual and physical uplift. Away from mass tourism even in high season, Amorgos is surrounded by natural beauty, unique energy, crystal deep blue sea, marvelous beaches, breathtaking landscapes and amazing sunsets. Known as “pearl of the Aegean”, Amorgos with its unspoiled beauty offers the perfect setting to escape from routine being one of the most popular destinations Yoga Retreat in Europe.

An Introduction to Mindfulness
2:30 PM14:30

An Introduction to Mindfulness

There’s nothing ‘woo woo’ about Mindfulness. Backed by some pretty impressive research with more than 3500 studies published about the topic since 2010, Mindfulness and its benefits is fast becoming a tool anyone can learn and understand within a short space of time. Some of the discoveries that have been made is that practicing mindfulness can literally change the shape of your brain!

Mindfulness has proven to help with more focus, more creativity, better relationships, less stress and anxiety, better health, more resilience and higher levels of empathy and compassion. 

It’s not magic, it’s tools that need to be learned and then practiced daily. Studies have shown that it only requires up to 10 minutes a day to start to see dramatic improvement in, not only mental, but also physical health.

Cherryl Duncan will be giving a  2 hour introduction to what Mindfulness is and how it can be used.

You will walk away from the session with a practice of your own you can take home and use everyday.

You will also walk away with a clear understanding of how being mindful, being present can dramatically improve the quality of your life.

We all want to get the most out of our life’s experience, and learning some easy to use mindfulness techniques can make that possible.

Every moment you choose, you can tap into a state of being that is easeful, stress free and intensely profound.

When:             20th May 2017

Where:            Patrick Broome Schwabing

Time:              14:30-16:30

Meditation for Beginners at Patrick Broome Yoga -Munich
to Feb 4

Meditation for Beginners at Patrick Broome Yoga -Munich

  • Patrick Broome Yoga Studios (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS


Cherryl Duncan will be teaching a 4 week meditation course in January 2017. The course is about creating a solid foundation for a doable daily meditation practice. You will learn what to do when you sit down to meditate. You will be guided through a step by step process that you will learn yourself and can then use to maintain your own practice, The course is taught every Saturday for 90 mins, and runs for 4 weeks. You will have exercises and homework to do in between the sessions where you can practice what you have learnt.

Meditation has been proven to :
Lower high blood pressure, help with tension headaches and insomnia, help in balancing one’s mood, strengthen the immune system, increase energy levels, decrease anxiety, increase general happiness, increase clarity of mind and ease in decision making. Most of all, it creates an awareness of an inner world and a realization of where true happiness comes come.

All sounds wonderful right? Then why don’t we do it?

Most people find it quite difficult to meditate, and need to be taught step by step. Meditation doesn’t mean sitting down in lotus position (with your legs crossed), closing your eyes and thinking of nothing. It is a skill that needs to be learnt and this course will give you some tools that will help you learn how to meditate every day so that you can start to feel all of these amazing benefits.

This course sets the foundation for a meditation practice and is aimed at those starting out with their practice. For those who would like to meditate but have no idea where to begin, or for those who have experienced 5 or so minutes of meditation after a Yoga class but would like to take it to the next level.
By the end of the course you would have learnt how to meditate for 15 minutes at least per day.
You will also learn the fundamentals of what you can do in your every day life that will improve your ability to meditate effectively
In each session we will meditate using the tools given per week, thereafter you will have an opportunity to ask any questions that may arise.

Level – beginners to intermediate level.

dharmaKaya Weekend Workshops in BASEL
to Oct 17

dharmaKaya Weekend Workshops in BASEL

The workshop modules will be presented in the form of a Master Class, which means an explanation and introduction to the DharmaKaya Yoga Anchor followed by an asana practice, which integrates the understanding of the theory into physical practice.


October 15th-16th

Cherryl Duncan is back with her DharmaKaya Method,

 teaching the saturday morning class, as well as hosting 2 workshops.


Saturday October 15th





This anchor is about acknowledging that we are not just one thing at one time. It’s about

starting to see the world in it’s many wonderful and colourful contradictions, and that starts

with ourselves, accepting that we can be many things at the same time. That nothing is wholly

bad or wholly good for that matter. Appreciating the fluctuating nature of good things gone

bad and bad things turning good.


Sunday October 16th


Belief in Self

Self-belief is developed from inside, it’s your power base of energy that you

were born with. Most people are unaware they have this power, and rely, especially within the

yoga context, on a guru, or an authority outside of themselves. While teachers and mentors

continually inspire and guide us, we don’t rely on them to put us in contact with supreme

consciousness. Instead this method encourages a direct and personal relationship with

consciousness develops and empowers the student to embrace their inherent power.

dharmaKaya Weekend Workshops in Düsseldorf
to Sep 10

dharmaKaya Weekend Workshops in Düsseldorf


Am 09. September 2016 von 18.00 bis 20.30 Uhr DharmaKaya Workshop Teil 1 "Insight"

Am 10. Septrember 2016 von 10.30 bis 13.00 Uhr DharmaKaya Workshop Teil 2 "Paradoxes"


DharmaKaya Yoga ist in fünf Aspekten verankert, die die grundlegende Philosophie der Methode präsentieren: Erkenntnis, Authentizität, Paradoxon, Verantwortlichkeit, Glaube an sich selbst.

Die DharmaKaya Workshops fokussieren sich auf die folgenden zwei Aspekte:

Teil 1 - ERKENNTNIS: Erkenntnisse gewinnen wir, wenn wir ohne Wertung beobachten. Beobachten mit einer solchen Konzentration, dass wir die Dinge sehen, wie sie sind, ohne die Filter der eigenen Wahrnehmung. Je länger und tiefgründiger deine Beobachtung, desto mehr Information erscheint dir. Der Effekt dieses Verhaltens nennt sich Erkenntnis. Als Yogi beobachten wir unser Selbst, unser Bewusstsein, unseren Körper um zunächst uns und dann die Welt um uns herum besser verstehen zu können.

Teil 2 -  PARADOXON: Hier geht es um das Anerkennen, dass wir nie nur eine Sache sind. Ziel ist es, die Welt in all ihren wunderbaren Widersprüchlichkeiten zu sehen, beginnend bei uns selbst und unserer eigenen Vielfalt. Nichts ist ausschließlich gut oder schlecht. Es gilt, die veränderliche Natur der Dinge schätzen zu lernen, dass aus Schlechtem Gutes entstehen kann und umgekehrt.

Beide Workshops werden alle typischen Elemente der DharmaKaya Methode enthalten: Bewegung und Stille, Energiearbeit, Atemübungen, Meditation und Philosophie.

Ein Workshop - Erkenntnis oder Paradoxon - kostet 50€. Beide Workshops kosten zusammen 90€. Es ist wundervoll beide Workshops im Zusammenhang zu erleben, doch auch einzeln wirken sie komplett und sind gut verständlich. Die Workshops werden auf Englisch gehalten.

Magnificently REAL Seminar - Munich
to May 22

Magnificently REAL Seminar - Munich

  • Prancing Leopard Studio (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Prepare to go on a journey to the very heart of what guides your decisions, fuels your reactions and determines how you respond to the challenges in your life. Cherryl has developed a 4 step method to living life authentically and more importantly a way to express who you are more effectively, creatively and compassionately. Based on her book Magnificently Real, the workshop is designed to lead you through the 4 steps starting with reaction and moving on through the feeling, acceptance and finally onto communication.

You will leave with a greater understanding of any challenging situation you choose to bring (or not) to the table and better yet, an ability to express that understanding either with others or through creative action.

The session runs over two days from 1-5 on Saturday and 1-5 on Sunday

Each session will start with a relaxing yoga class (All levels welcome) and we will run the seminar with short breaks in between.

What others had to say:

This book is a straightforward and simple method of getting to the crux of our emotions, sounds easy in essence, but actually is incredibly difficult. At times you think you know why you feel a certain way but by implementing the four step process you uncover some startling home truths. I enjoyed the personal story and background too it gave the method a human face and context. Far too often we wear a mask for a myriad of reasons and this stops us from having authentic relationships and experiences. Read the book and drop your mask you will not be sorry . It was well written and a quick read, I highly recommend it.~ Jenifer Steyn

DharmaKaya Workshop in Düsseldorf
to Apr 9

DharmaKaya Workshop in Düsseldorf

DharmaKaya yoga is based on 5 anchors, which form the foundation for the philosophy of the method: Insight, Paradoxes, Authenticity, Responsibility and Belief in Self.

The DharmaKaya workshops focus on the following two anchors:

Part 1: Insight: Insight is what comes when you keenly observe something without judgement, and that’s the important part, without judgement. To observe something so closely, with so much concentration that you start to see it for what it really is - as opposed to seeing it through your own clouded perception.  The more you watch, and the greater your depth of observation, the more information you can pick up. Insight is the understanding that is gained through doing this. As yoga practitioners we use the study of self, our own minds and bodies to first understand ourselves, and by doing so, understand the world around us.


Part 2: Paradoxes: This anchor is about acknowledging that we are not just one thing at one time. It’s about starting to see the world in it’s many wonderful and colourful contradictions, and that starts with ourselves, accepting that we can be many things at the same time. That nothing is wholly bad or wholly good for that matter. Appreciating the fluctuating nature of good things gone bad and bad things turning good.



You can expect to find the following elements in the DharmaKaya Workshops:

Breath: Breath practiced in conjunction with movement will be used as a purifying tool, essentially as a moving meditation that helps to build heat. This has a detoxifying and uplifting effect on the body and mind. Natural breathing technique is used as a way to truly feel the more subtle, energetic aspects of the practice.


Movement and Stillness: DharmaKaya yoga uses a combination of flowing movement as well as an opportunity to be still. Both elements are essential for experiencing that in us which changes and transforms, and that in us, which is forever constant, and without change.


Energy Work: You will learn how to use Prana (our vital life force) in a way that encourages deeper experiences of the nature of the mind and that which is beyond the mind. We all have Prana but we don’t all know how to cultivate, protect and channel it properly.


Meditation: The whole purpose of practicing yoga asana (the physical form) is to prepare us for meditation. It is only through stillness that we are able to gain access to greater awareness and a deeper, more fulfilling experience of life – not only on the yoga mat, but in our life.


Philosophical Element: You will be exposed to the philosophy of yoga. Thought that has been handed down from ancient lineages as well as by modern mystics. Thought that is both uplifting and helpful with a focus on belief in Self, Authentic Expression, Connection and Evolution of the individual Spirit.


About Cherryl: Cherryl Duncan has been inspiring change for over 10 years. An internationally trained and recognised teacher of yoga, eastern philosophy and a catalyst for authentic living and expression, Cherryl created her own method of yoga called DharmaKaya. After years of teaching as an 800 hour Advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher, Cherryl refined her own style to include the 12 years of study in other fields such as Tibetan Buddhism, Western Philosophy, as well as the close and brutal study of her own psyche.
