Yoga & Meditation Journey

We reunite in a community of connected souls to do our practice, to recognize parts of ourselves that need healing, to drop mental illusions and begin new day fully present and relaxed.

Yoga is the way we come into the profound experiences of oneness, into a state of deep internal fulfillment, yoga is a way how we get in touch with the source.

Every session is accurately designed to reorganize chi (energy) flows in the nadis (channels) and activate dormant parts of the body while cooling down the monkey-mind.

We begin with meditation, proceed with purifying breathing practices and go deeper with a sequence of asanas (postures). Feel your body opening up and gaining its energy back. Our yoga classes conclude with balancing pranayamas (breathing) and profound, full body relaxation.

We often learn and chant ancient mantras and discuss yogic philosophical texts. Yoga is a step by step guidance that takes us way beyond good physical workout, but to a new level of consciousness. Every practice is different and adapted to the group of yogis and their level.

Special events

Breathwork workshop

Are you ready to feel what lives inside of you and release old beliefs? Become the conscious creator of your new and fulfilling reality! Conscious breathing is a safe and gentle process that encourages everyone to explore, experience, express and release their emotions.

Holistic Activities & Healings :

 

Reiki Energy Healing & Chakra Balancing

Reiki is a universal, graceful and compassionate energy that can heal on many levels. As it flows through into the recipient’s body they will deeply relax, balance and become calm. But Reiki can do much more than this.All of our energy systems are linked, the mind, body, and soul; each of these systems is connected and can have an effect on each other. It follows then that if a cleansing, healing energy flows through the body, the spiritual body and the mind will also benefit. This is how Reiki works; flowing through the body, cleansing, healing and detoxifying the system on many levels and therefore healing the mind, body, and emotions.
