Sunday April 24th 2016 – Limited number of places

10:00 AM to 12:30 PM – FEE : 30€

Bookings :



I invite you to join this innovative workshop that aims at making accessible the junction between yogic postures and the most simple danced movements, with joy and authenticity.

First of all, a course of yoga Vinyasa in the most pure tradition. The linked-up movements conducted by the vital rhythm of the breathing, will allow us to practice a number of chosen postures.

Then, thanks to the music, we will access an enchaînement increasingly more fluid, in the discovery of an essential and meaningful movement.

Re-enjoy or discover the ease of the body that seizes its own space smoothly, and evolves towards a gesture almost ritual, less mechanical, but always coordinated by the precision of the musical tempo.

« I have the desire to see you, yogis and yoginis, bringing life to the postures, defining trajectories, setting free the interior plumb line of your own proprioception! »

While it is true that we rarely have the opportunity to find our heart above the head, reversing the usual gravity yet has many benefits. In yoga practice which is essentially the search for equilibrium in lifestyle, inverted postures are considered as king & queens of the postures. They are simply another way to change our habitude and think outside the box; they allow us to see things from a different angle and enables us to find new perspectives and cultivate confidence.
The inverted positions equilibrate the energy flow in our body whilst stimulating the vital systems and a regular practice of inversions makes healthy pure blood flow through the brains cells.In the course of two workshops, we will explore these powerful postures and their specific effects, addressing progressively with variations and modifications to make them accessible to all.
(i) Stimulating, energising inversions (morning practice) (ii) Restorative, calming inversions (evening practice)
We invite you join us to experience this upside down journey in which we will gradually uplift ourselves and look within from an alternate perspective, explore potentials whilst avoiding the injuries.
