Workshop: Yoga Basic

Have you always wanted to try yoga but didn’t find the right start yet? Or do you already practice yoga but want to fine tune your knowledge? In our 3-hour Yoga Basic Workshop you will explore the basics of Vinyasa Flow Yoga – from Sun Salutations to the meaning behind chanting “Om”.

Vinyasa Flow is a physical, dynamic from of yoga, in which the breath is used to link one yoga posture to another in one fluid movement.

We strengthen the muscles, improve endurance, balance and flexibility and close the practice with a meditation as well as final relaxation. There is no prior experience required and it doesn’t matter how fit you are – Yoga is for everybody.

This workshop is the perfect introduction to the regular Yoga Basic class at YogaBee on Wednesday evening from 8:00 – 9:15 pm.

Date: Sunday, September 16

Time: 1:00 – 4:00 pm
Location: YogaBee
Price: 50 €

Workshop Series

Workshop Series: Hips, Back & Shoulders

In this three part workshop series we will be looking at those areas in the body that often feel tight or at times even painful: the hips, the back and the shoulders.

Dynamic strengthening creates stability in the body and gentle stretches soften tensions – both elements at play in our yoga practice foster well-being and health in our body as well as our mind.

Part I: Happy Hips

In this workshop we will take a look at the biggest joint in the human body: the hips. Being the joint between out lower and upper body, the hips directly affect our spine and especially the lower back.

Influenced by our way of life these areas feels often very tight which affects us not only physically, but also mentally: the hips are known to store unprocessed experiences as “body memories”, which often causes tensions and restrictions of movement in the body.

We will take a short excursion into the anatomy of the hips before exploring the body in a Vinyasa Flow practice that focusses on the hips. In a gentle Yin Yoga practice we will wind down and dive deep into the hip joint, ending in a short meditation that offers a safe place to release thought patterns or emotions that you wish to let go of.

Hips: Sunday, April 8 / 10:30 – 12:30 am
Back: Sunday, April 22 / 10:30 – 12:30 am
Shoulders: Sunday, May 13 / 10:30 – 12:30 am
Location: Besser Bewegen, Schleissheimerstrasse 202, 80797 München
Cost: 25,00 Euro / All three workshops: 60,00 Euro

Retreat in Greece

My lovely yogis!

The time has come: I will be leading a lovely retreat and it`s going to be my first one in Europe so I am all the more excited that it will take place in Greece!

This week long retreat is located at the gorgeous west coast of Greece, at the Ionian Sea, overlooking Korfu. This untouched coastline, where green hills meet pristine beaches with crystal clear water, surrounded by an impressive mountain range, is the perfect place to unplug and nurture your body, mind and soul.

We will start our day with an energizing Vinyasa Flow class, where fluidity and alignment merge beautifully into sequences that are at times challenging, yet playful and accessible. During the day you will have time to swim at one of the gorgeous beaches or the pool, go for a stroll or hike or simply enjoy sweet moments of calm. In the evening we will wind down in a gentle Yin Yoga practice that will leave you replenished and grounded.

This retreat will take place from June 30 until July 7 at the Ilios Center nearby Syvota and includes 2 yoga classes per day, accomodation as well as breakfast and dinner.
