Anusara Yoga Workshop With Mounira Bazzi (Saturday, April 9 at 4 PM – 6 PM)

Beloved Souls,
Join the wonderful and Inspirational Mounira Bazzi visiting from Belgium in this Heart Opening Yoga Practice that will for sure open up our Heart, Mind and Body Channels.

Anusara Yoga is a hatha yoga system that unifies the Universal Principles of Allignment with a non-
dualistic Tantric Philosophy that is epitomized by a ‘celebration of the Heart’.
The central philosophy of Anusara Yoga is based on the view that everything is Supreme Consciousness..
nothing exists that is not Supreme Consciousness.
Anusara Yoga encompasses a vision of totality in which each person is seen as equally Divine in every part-
body ,mind and spirit.Anusara yoga teaches us to honor our abilities and limitations.
Anusara is flowing with Grace by saying yes to the whole magical spectrum of Life.
It is a willingness to be aware of all parts of ourselves-the Light and the Dark.
The highest intention is to allign with the flow of Grace.
We dance with the flow of Consciousness through each breath and every posture in our yoga practice.
The poses in Anusara Yoga are considered to be ‘heart oriented’ and are expressed from the ‘inside out’.
Instead of trying to control the body and mind from the outside.
There is an emphasis on remembering the spiritual purpose of hatha yoga.
In these Master class(es) we will explore what it means to ‘Open to Grace’.
We will also look at the three A’s the foundation of Anusara Yoga.
Attitude,Allignment and Action.
For beginners and non-beginners alike

Yoga Nidra Workshop With Lina & Sandy! ( Saturday, May 7 at 4 PM – 6 PM)

In today’s fast paced world, many of us have a hard time to relax. Many of us are aware that too much stress is not good… that it could lead to poor quality of sleep, shallow breathing, imbalanced eating habits, muscular tensions, inability to concentrate, racing thoughts; and still many are not able to relax.
Yoga offers many different tools for relaxation, one of them is YOGA NIDRA.
Yoga nidra is a systematic, simple method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.
Nidra literally means sleep; during the practice, one appears to be asleep, but one remains aware because the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness.
Yoga nidra removes fatigue and invigorates the body.
The stresses and strains of daily life create tensions and these rob the mind of its serenity. Yoga nidra removes tensions and restores the elasticity of your mind.
Yoga Nidra is one of the main tools for the attainment of the yogic state of supreme peace and tranquility of mind.

The workshop (2hrs) starts with a lecture about yoga nidra, followed by physical & breathing practices to induce calmness, followed by the full practice of yoga nidra.
It is open to everybody, whether you are a novice or an avid practitioner.
Wear warm clothes because during relaxation the body temperature drops a little. Have your last meal 3 hours before. And join us with an open heart and a smile.

Fees: 24$
Places are limited! Please Contact us: +961 3 029 734/ +961 71 780 221/ +961 3 543 107

I Bend So I Don’t Break! (Backbend & Hip-Opening Workshop) With Rita (Saturday, April 30 at 4 PM – 6 PM)

The honest truth is that most of us are afraid of bending backward, even those who are very established in their yoga asana practice. Looking at our daily routines, we spend a lot of time moving forward. Therefore, it only makes sense to be hesitant about moving our bodies in the opposite direction.

Benefits of backbends are endless.
On a physical level backbends stimulate the central nervous system, boost immune system, realign and increase mobility in the spinal column, open the hips, strengthen and stretch the legs.

Other benefits include increasing the flow of blood, massaging the vital organs and glands as well as loosening the joints. Backbends boost energy levels and relieve tensions stored in the muscles. Mr. Iyengar has recommended backbends for curing depression. Psychologically, backbends teach us to be more patient with ourselves and offer valuable lessons such as discipline and care. On an energetic level backbends allow for deep heart opening.

This workshop is suitable for beginner to advanced students alike. We will dive into hip and shoulder opening asanas in preparation for backbending, as the hips and the shoulders play a very important role in successful backbending. Once the hips and shoulders are warmed up and opened, we will move through progressively deeper backbends, repeating them so that the spine opens in a safe, comfortable way.

Energy Exchange: 29$
