Embracing Connection & Belonging in times of flux.

More than ever, this year we realize the importance of a genuine connection with ourselves, other human beings and the relationship to and with the earth. This encourages philosophical yet very practical questions like "what really matters?" and "what is important to me?" This Workshop provides supporting tools to be present, to feel at home in your own skin and return to the heart space as a choice and a practice.

Throughout the weekend we, as a community, will explore sequences that are inspired by Ashtanga and are grounded in classical Hatha Yoga. Weaving together a playful practice that allows honest and joyful conversations, offering modifications & preperations for the more complex asanas. Allowing the body´s inherent intelligence to unfold and to reconnect with our true essence which is love. The morning practice is followed by embodied meditations & breath work. The afternoon sessions include Yoga Nidra, stress-release techniques, journaling & Self care, interactive philosophy talks & chanting.

A familiarity with Ashtanga can be beneficial but not essential. 

Everyone is welcome.
