Program

Cleansing practices in yoga

You will begin your day with a teaching of the basic cleansing procedures in yoga kriyas, Jala neti- cleaning your nose with salt water using a nety pot, extremely helpful in cases of sinusitis, and any kind of breathing problems. If the group is ready, you will continue with sutra nety-cleaning the nostrils with string and kynjal kriya or Vamana dhouty.

Hatha yoga

This class will start with a short meditation and continue with breathing exercises - different by effect and practice pranayamas, gentle opening of the body and escalate by their difficulty asanas-postures in traditional Indian teaching style, followed by meditation and yoga Nidra or deep relaxation.

Power yoga

There will be an intensive class of flowing asanas connected breathing and in-between Vinyasas. This will work your body flexibility, will make it strong, and will provide intense in-depth detoxification of tissues and muscles. The class will be in the tradition of Pataby Jois.

You will learn bandhas, how to lead your energy higher, some mudras-position of the hand fingers and drishty, points of concentration of eyes during the asana performance. At the end of the practice, there will be meditation and a non-guided relaxation.

Active meditations - Dynamic, Kundalini, Nataraj, or Sacred Earth

Active meditations use breathing, dancing, or shaking as a way of letting go of the needed baggage most of you carry on your shoulders due to your conditioning. They help one to feel lighter and at ease with oneself, and get in contact with the life energy within directly through the body. One then reaches a center within easier than with classical sitting meditation and a deeper quality of silence and contact with one’s self.

Meditation is not anything of the mind, it is something beyond the mind. The first step is to be playful about it. If you are playful about it, the mind cannot destroy your meditation. Otherwise, it will turn it into another ego trip; it will make you very serious.

Pranic healing classes

This is a beautiful healing method in Himalayan tantra yogic tradition including mudras sounds and concentration on chakras in order to balance elements in your body. The first day you learn how to apply on yourself and second for the others too.
