Yoga Workshops

Various yoga workshops are given during the year. The goal of these yoga workshops, on certain Saturdays, is to introduce you to different specific elements of yoga, in order to deepen your knowledge and know-how for your regular practice to be more efficient.
A yoga workshop is not a yoga class, but is a period during which the participant will be able to improve his regular practice, as it aims at developing his awareness progressively on the multiple facets that the postures and various forms of breathing represent when working in synergy.

1. FIRST PART: Theory and philosophy: What is yoga and the art of living?

  • The 8 branches of yoga, according to Patanjali, author of the "Yoga Sutras"
  • Mudras (seals)
  • The 3 bandhas (intern locks)
  • Nadis (network of subtle energy channels)

2. SECOND PART - Practice: Sun salutations (A & B), and Moon salutations

When broken down, these various salutations / vinyasa represent 10 distinct postures which are linked together.

  • When practiced properly, these 10 postures also integrate the mudras, the bandhas, and have a profond impact on the nadis.
  • Most often times, yoga practitioners flow through vinyasas without integrating the other complementary elements, mentioned above, which have such profound benefits.
I truly recommend to participate at this workshop, as your personal practice will only go to a deeper level with a new revelation on the multiple elements which work in synergy and which have nothing comparable to sports or other disciplines.
