Combine three of Cherryl’s favourite things, Yoga, Italian Food and Wine for a week of the good life in Umbria, Italy.
Cherryl will be teaching daily DharmaKaya yoga classes which is a method that she developed herself, and can be best described as slow, focused and challenging. Slow enough for beginners, intense enough and intense enough for the more experienced.
By teaching the physical practice together with philosophical elements, the student is taught to more effectively observe their own bodies, thoughts and feelings, which leads to a greater understanding, acceptance and ultimately love of their own life and their place in relationships; relationship to Self, Others and the Environment. What better place to do some soul searching and nurturing than under the Italian Sun surrounded by tranquil green landscape, delicious food, intense wines and great company?

Dharmakaya Yoga ... registered and certified with the Yoga Alliance (RYT 200) in the CASA EL MORISCO
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.
What is DharmaKaya Yoga?
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.
About the Teacher Training:
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.

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.

I'm back at my favourite fairy castle. Teaching a week in the Bavarian Alps.
I will be back on the 27th February to resume my regular schedule at Patrick Broome
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.

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.

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.

09:00-10:00 Yoga BASICA
16:00-17:30 - Jivamukti Open Class
27th - 29th July 2016
Her classes will continue in Munich during this time with a substitute teacher.
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

** SPACE IS LIMITED AS THE METHOD WORKS MOST EFFECTIVELY IN GROUPS NO BIGGER THAN 10- 12
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.
