In four weeks we dive deeper into one of the pillars of yoga. This month we look at the effect of mindfulness and meditation (‘just sitting’) in Vijnana Yoga. FOR WHOM? Everyone is welcome: beginners and advanced yoga practitioners. The teacher will give you instructions on your own level.

What to expect?

In this course Eveline gives clear explanation of what meditation / ‘just sitting’ is and how is effects body and mind.

  • In a series of special meditation-practices you learn to quiet your mind.
  • We use the vayu’s; breathing towards specific point in your body to center yourself.
  • Then we do pranayama to calm the nervous system and energize the body.
  • After that we do a dynamic flow of different asana’s. You will notice how the meditation and breathing will influence the quality of your movements. It enhances the focus and your concentration becomes refined and sharp.
  • With this course you will get a handout with a short series of practices you can do at home.


About mindfulness and meditation in yoga

For centuries yoga has been connected with meditation. Eveline, specialized in Vijnana Yoga, follows the insights found by Orit Sen Gupta. She proposes the ‘just sitting’ meditation as a good way to meditate. There are no rituals, you needn’t do anything but sit and breath. The only matters you learn are about the posture of sitting and how your sitting is connected with your natural way of breathing. In this course you get acquainted with this ‘just sitting’. It is an interesting ‘technique’ which you can use any time and anywhere once you are familiar with it. As you will find out the meditation helps your yoga to become more enjoyable, stable and pleasant.



Eveline Torres is a teacher who does a lot of research and likes to share her knowledge with her yogi students. She often takes retreats with Orit Sen Gupta, the founder of Vijnana Yoga. Eveline brings her newest insights back to the Fast Forward Course.
