What does it mean to practice Self-care in 2019? Where are we placing our attention so that our needs and desires are being met in order to cultivate a life that is peaceful and content?
While we all want to live a meaningful life, so often we suffer from depression, mood swings, general discontent, lethargy, weight issues, body image disorders, all of which point to signs of imbalance.
Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras are a practical guide for Self-care, a path that requires great attention, awareness, and (as the Bhagavad Gita defines yoga), “skill in action”.
Join Senior teacher Alicia Cheung for several heart felt and informative talks on, “Yoga and Self-Care in the 21st Century”. Here you will learn how to better balance your life in the areas of mind, body and spirit.
Balance is your greatest point of strength. If you want a private session with Alicia to cultivate more balance in your diet or in your meridians and nervous system, then come enjoy a session with her through Nutritional Counseling or acupuncture and craniosacral therapy. to book a private session please send an email to email@example.com
Patanjali’s Guide to Self-Care // 10:00-12:30 // saturday 9 march // kirchberg
The great sage, Patanjali, defines yoga as, “the stillness of the movements of the mind”. Herein lies the Divine within each of us, underneath these constant fluctuations. What do you currently do in your life to create stillness in your mind? That mental space allows for True Being to arise and illuminate.
If you struggle to find and maintain balance in your life, then this is the workshop for you! Learn practical, user friendly tips on how to better nurture all the parts of yourself in order to discover True Being.
anatomy Lab // 13:30-16:00 // saturday 9 march // kirchberg
There is nothing inherently enlightening about asana poses. In fact, some may be particularly dangerous and injurious to your structure. In this 2.5-hour hands-on inquiry and exploration, we will discuss functional movements of the joints and spine, and the need for balance between stability and mobility within the entire body.
Mindful Movement for Tissue Balance // 16:30-18:30 // saturday 9 marcH // kirchberg
With the continued popularity of yoga, asana-related injuries are increasing at an ever-alarming rate. We will explore the general ways in which we use our body in asana and then what we can add into our existing practice to cultivate more tissue balance so that our connective tissues remain strong, supple, bouncy and healthy. While this will be active and challenging, the last 45 minutes will be long-held stretches, pranayama and relaxation techniques to down regulate and balance the nervous system.
Yin Within Yang: Finding Stillness in Movement // 14:00-16:00 // sunday 10 marcH // kirchberg
Often times we go on automatic pilot in our asana practice when we know the asanas well and this can sometimes lead to injuries. Learn to stay in the movement and flow of your breath by finding a deeper stillness in the mind. Learn to move more slowly and thoughtfully from the core and a slow, steady breath so that balancing becomes easier and the flow more graceful.
Roll Play: Releasing Tension in Tissues to Improve Breathing // 18:30-20:30 // Friday 15 March // merl
Use the practice of rolling and breathing techniques to access deep states of stillness and relaxation. We will explore the mechanics of the breath and release tension in areas of the back, chest, neck and belly. Relaxing the muscles involved in respiration allow for a deep, down regulation of the nervous system, leaving you with a sense of ease, clarity, and bliss.

“Fostering a Deeper Relationship with Yourself”
In a world that is increasingly hectic and demanding, we easily lose ourselves in the busyness of everyday life. And even though we may try to do our yoga and/or meditation practice, we often either rush to the studio and practice with the little energy we have left at the end of the day, or we try to meditate with a mind that is so busy that we can’t seem to quiet it down. And somehow, connecting to ourselves stays out of our reach.
In this practical workshop, you will learn tools and techniques from the science of well-being, that will enable you to reconnect with yourself on a daily basis, which, in turn, will not only increase your happiness and your resilience; it will allow you to stay centered and true to yourself - whatever life throws at you.
If applied, what you will learn in this workshop can also help you improve your yoga and meditation practice.
Should you wish to embark on your personal happiness adventure after the workshop and would like a little guidance, you can book private consultations with Pamela.
Just bring yourself, comfortable clothes and a little notebook and pen.
spring equinox yoga- renew your energy
with christina betdashtu-drews
Thursday March 21 // 18:15 - 20:15 // EUR 40
Join us as we celebrate the Spring Equinox, the time of renewal, rebirth of nature, and the awakening of our own creativity, energy and passion. This day marks the change of seasons and the beginning of longer days and shorter nights.
It is a time of rebirth and is celebrated as the New Year’s beginning in some cultures.
When we engage in this special springtime practice, we allow more of the Divine to become diffused throughout our being. We can heal the body and mind this way. Therefore, take advantage of the powerful, regenerative energies of the spring period. We will use a cardiovascular workout, moving meditations and chant powerful seed sounds.
The practices of Naam Yoga (similar to Kundalini) will recharge your batteries and activate your healing energy.
Come along to practice yoga, breathe and meditate !
Open to all levels.

Mindfulness is an ancient Buddhist meditation practice that teaches us to become present and live in harmony with ourselves and the world. It allows us to examine who we are, to question our worldview and to find our place in the world by living each moment fully and consciously.
So much of our days happen in auto-pilot mode – when we learn to become mindful, we return to being in touch with ourselves and become able to fully experience our life as it unfolds. Through careful, kind, non-judgmental and systematic self-observation, we learn to foster a deeper relationship with ourselves, with others and with life in general.
Mindfulness is a simple concept, but through its practice and application, it allows us to develop greater awareness, clarity and acceptance of present moment experiences which, in turn, allows us to realize the richness and depth of our possibilities for growth and transformation.
A regular Mindfulness practice brings greater happiness, more resilience, more wisdom and better health!
Whether you wish to discover Mindfulness, experience a deeper immersion into this practice or learn to develop a personal practice, this practical workshop is for you!
No previous Mindfulness practice required. Please wear comfortable clothes.
Sunday March 31// 13:30-16:30
sunday april 14// 13:30-16:30
sunday may 19// 13:30-16:30
Workshops are privileged moments to work in depth and revitalize your practice. With twice the time of a regular class, we will explore different families of asanas and discover the connections between them.
We will work on alignment to help to understand the key points that will help you progress you practice with steadiness and ease. Each monthly practice will be adapted according to the season.
Iyengarⓡ Yoga, one of the world's most widely-practiced forms (certified teachers in more than 80 countries around the world), emphasizes correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose. This precision builds strength and stamina, balance and flexibility, and a new sense of well-being. Precision teaches the practitioner to be fully and vibrantly in the present moment, achieving "meditation in action" .
