“To remain ensconced in evenmindedness during all states of activities is yoga; he who can preserve in himself this mental balance in every kind of changeful circumstance is a yogi.”
~The Bhagavad Gita translation by Yogananda
Price: 140 for whole weekend or 40 euros per session
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic, flowing yoga practice that brings us strength, endurance and flexibility. Restorative yoga is a soft, static yoga practice that brings us ease, relaxation and softness. They both bring physical well-being and mental evenness. Knowing how to choose the approach that will give us exactly what we need on any particular day brings more balance to ourselves on a daily basis. Finding peace of mind, energy, health and balance are keys to living a happy, contented life; the combination of these two practices that rest on the polar opposites of the yoga line will bring you all this!
These workshops are open to all levels of practitioners, join us in yoga!

Samasthitih & Rooting the Legs in the Ashtanga Standing Sequence
Saturday November 26th 11h30 – 13h30
Samasthitih is the very first pose we do and it informs every single other pose that comes after it. Sama means same or equal. We will dive into the details of Samasthitih in order to find balance throughout our practice. Exploring ways to avoid hyperextended knees, to root our feet and strengthen our legs in order to bloom to the sky with steadiness and grace. Learning to ‘stand on our own two feet’ in the yoga class and how to bring those principles out into our life off the yoga mat.
After exploring Samasthitih we will use this knowledge to go through standing poses and finding strength and stability with the balance of the center of our body (aka Bandhas).
Flowing Forward Bends & Hip Opening moves into Restful Restorative
Saturday November 26th 14h30 – 17h00
When we open our hips and hamstrings we free our spine; allowing more movement overall. We’ll approach this workshop as a flowing practice to heat the body to allow the muscles to dissolve into the movements focusing on sitting forward bends and hip opening.
Then we’ll slow it down and go into deep relaxation with a restorative yoga practice for a little over an hour. Bring extra layers of clothing to keep warm and cozy!
Core Connection ~ Chaturanga and more Ashtanga Primary Series
Sunday November 27th 11h30 – 13h30
In this workshop we’ll discover our arms and shoulders in a profound way. Working on how to safely align the joint in the āsanas, how to find the balance between flexibility and strength and lastly how the core of the body plays a significant part in both flexibility and stability of the arms and shoulder girdle. We’ll connect top to bottom with this powerful pose, chaturanga dandasana.
After exploring the details of Chaturanga we will move through the standing and many more fun poses to invigorate the core of our body (aka abs).
Back Bending for All & Using Restorative to Ease & Open
Sunday November 27th 14h30 – 17h00

Then we will review some basics principles and add new ones, so that you will feel able to tackle heart opening asanas in a safe and structured manner.
