The Sun Salutation, or Surya Namaskar, is a complete practice in itself. This series of 12 postures
lengthens and strengthens, flexes and extends many of the main muscles of the body while distributing the prana flow throughout the system. The sequence is especially beneficial in energising the solar plexus region. The solar plexus is an important center in the body and is connected to many energy channels.
Around the world people come together on the Equinox, and perform the 108 salutations to cleanse the body, invite energy and elevate their being.
The 108 sun salutations are followed by a series of cooling down postures, chanting and meditation.

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" .

Being sensitive to seasonal change keeps us in contact with the rhythm of nature as it relates to the rhythm of our bodies.
During equinox the planet is divided into approximately equal parts of night and day. We want to make use of this special equilibrium and prepare ourselves for the next season. Autumn is the beginning of more restless days. The waning sunlight initiates a shift in our environment and most people get back to school and work.
We will use Naam Yoga techniques in this two-hour session to turn toward the light within by using healing mantras, pranayama and grounding movements that are suitable for all. Meditation time will renew us with balance and tranquility.

In order to create lasting well-being and to be able to achieve our dreams and aspirations in life, we need to have courage!
Despite us all having difficult moments in life, we mostly need courage when it comes to dealing with other people -whether this is in personal, romantic or professional relationships or in our relationship with our self.
In this workshop you will learn how to protect and stand up for yourself, how to speak from the heart with self-respect and how to assert yourself in life, so that you can explore your life from a safe and stable core.
As always, this workshop is based on the latest theory and research from Positive Psychology and Positive Neuroscience and incorporates a number of practical exercises to help you build courage straight away.
We will finish the workshop with a Q&A session.

Apart from teaching yoga and mindfulness at our studios, she regularly holds Positive Psychology (well-being, resilience, mindfulness) workshops in both private and corporate settings in Luxembourg and abroad and helps clients achieve their full potential.
Her work and her personal philosophy rest upon the idea that everyone is unique and deserves to explore, express and develop their innate potential to be truly happy. Her workshops provide the tools needed to remove obstacles and pave the way to lasting, unconditional well-being.
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.
Sound healing is one of the oldest and most natural forms of healing known to man. It uses the power of sound to restore one's mind, body and spirit back to a state of balance.
The sound waves from the instruments entrain the brain to move into the deeper Alpha, Theta and Delta brain wave frequencies, inducing a deep meditative and peaceful state. As human beings, we are comprised mainly of liquid, these vibrations deeply penetrate our bodies, moving through our tissues and organs. The sound resonates directly into our cellular memory releasing blockages and creating a profound sense of peace and relaxation. It is also a pathway to meditation, without knowing how to meditate.
As autumn approaches and our energy turns inward come to surf the waves of sacred sound and find your inner stillness. My name is Inkeri I am a sound healer and music therapist in training at l'Hopital La Chartreuse and it will be my pleasure to guide you on this auspicious journey.

This Autumn let's learn a little more about yoga and practice together!
In each 3 hour session we will cover YOGA PHILOSOPHY & YOGA ASANA. This intensive course will interest practitioners of all levels.

Open the door to the infinite by getting yourself grounded in standing poses and learn how to establish a strong connection to the earth though an ancient system.
Once we have established a strong sense of connection to the earth we are able to increase the vital life force that is residing inside of all of us. In this session we will focus on specific breathing techniques that can be used as daily practices and also how to properly breath during an asana session. Through breath work and a focus on forward bending we will discover how to free ourselves (and our hamstrings!) from what holds us back and blocks us from our full potential.
Can you trust that everything is exactly the way that is should be? Learn to listen deep within and start to trust yourself! Enhance your ability to be calm and sit with what is. Learn to be comfortable when life gets uncomfortable. Slow down, get quiet and identify your true and time-less self!

PRANayama (yogic breathing) class
with pragya kothari
Sunday November 25th // 16:30-18:00 // yogaloft. MERL
Pranayama is the practice of ancient yogic breathing techniques that consciously control the flow of breath, and enhance the flow of energy in the body. The word pranayama breaks down into two sanskrit words ‘pran’ referring to the life force and ‘ayama’ referring to the expansion. These words combined means the expansion or setting free of the vital energy within us. A regular and balanced pranayama practice increases prana (life force), thereby inviting greater mental clarity, awareness and stability. Accessing the close connection between the breath and the mind, pranayama serves as a tool to direct energy and quiet the mind. It is particularly helpful in the preparation for meditation.
What does pranayama have to do with yoga?
In the second century B.C., a sage named Patanjali outlined what is known today as the Eight Limbs of Yoga. These eight steps act as guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. They serve as a prescription for moral and ethical conduct and self-discipline; they direct attention toward one’s health; and they help us to acknowledge the spiritual aspects of our nature. This workshop introduces you to the 4th limb of yoga- Pranayama, the practice of conscious breathing.
How can Pranayama help my yoga asana practice?
The practice of yoga asana requires one to breathe slowly and steadily while holding the pose. The ability to breathe steadily and mindfully requires one to be comfortable in their posture, and this represents the interconnection between asana and pranayma.
In this class we will practice various pranayama breathing techniques that you can integrate into your daily yoga asana practice.
You will have the possibility to:
Learn about the benefits and precautions associated with each technique
Learn how to engage the bandhas (energy locks) and mudras as they relate to the breath
Practice the integration of pranayama in asana practice
The class will culminate in reciting key mantras for peace, strength and positivity.
