The Lightness of Being
What is Yoga?
Yoga comes from the root yuj which means "to link, to unite" in Sanskrit. It is an empirical science, rooted in experience and practice, that comes to us from ancestral India. Many "yogas" exist including Hatha Yoga , the best known, with its system of postures (asanas), breathing exercises, purification techniques etc.
In Hatha Yoga, the starting point is the physical body and its energies. But beyond the physical form, the practice acts upon all other aspects of our being, holistically: the psychological, the emotional, the mental etc. Thus, by practicing Hatha Yoga, we explore our different inner domains, cultivating more awareness, connection and harmony.
Hatha Yoga is far from being a simple gymnastics through which we develop strength and flexibility. It is simultaneously a science, a discipline and a philosophy filled with wisdom which aims at the discovery and knowledge of the self.
"What is all this love and all this laughter?
It's the joyful sound of a soul waking up "
- Hafiz -
During the classes, I will guide you through the practice so that you can learn new asanas and experience them deeply and at your own pace, gradually. The emphasis will be on relaxation, internalisation, and listening to yourself, not on performance. We learn with the practice to cultivate fundamental qualities: presence and open attention. This approach is accessible to every-body, regardless of your level. You will discover and familiarise yourself with the energetic dimension of yoga through the knowledge of chakras, these energy centres that are activated by different postures.
My Hatha Yoga classes unfold in three stages:
Warm-up phase to wake up the body and prepare it for asanas
Session of asanas (Hatha Yoga postures)
Guided final relaxation
This Hatha Yoga practice is gentle, contemplative, internalized and deeply spiritual. It develops in us an attitude of openness, presence, mindfulness and joy at all times.
