Program Highlight

Advanced Vinyasa Flow
Synchronizing of movement with breath in a dynamic flow from India Mysore tradition, from fundamental to advanced poses.

Function and Alignment
Understanding the functions of poses, we get into the body. Alignment is personal, not universal.

Meridians Yin with Essential Oils
Use essential oils in a deep relaxing Yin practice based on the 12 Meridians from Traditional Chinese Medicine system.

Meditation, Pranayama and Chanting
Being in the present moment… Breathe in… out… Observe the mind fluctuations…make peace with Self.

Qi Gong 氣功
With the roots in Taoism and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), we cultivate the Chi 氣 through gentle and circular movements. Following the 12 major meridians, we guide the life energy through breathing, visualization, movement, and meditation.

Barefoot Training and Forest Walking
Barefoot is an invitation, not an obligation. Take a silent walk in the forest. Land softly in a natural gait.
