Pranayama:
Pranayama is an independent practice and an important part of our Yoga journey. It speaks directly to our subtle body and is a direct path to our nervous system. Regular practice will help you become emotionally and mentally more stable. The flow of thoughts calms down and there is more balance and clarity in your mind. Our immune system is strengthened and it has a positive effect on our entire organism.
This workshop is open to all experience levels. Andrea will work individually with each participant.

Yoga Nidra – the art of relaxation

Yoga Nidra can relax the whole system and can awaken the psychic body. When we practice Yoga Nidra we are trying to transcend the external mind. The experience is almost like dreaming, just more vivid and clear. To practice Yoga Nidra 3 days in a row can have a profound impact of how you feel and is the perfect antidote against depression and feelings of exhaustion.

Afternoon workshops:

Friday, March 29th
1 p.m. – 4 p.m. “Yamas and Niyamas“

The basis of yoga practice
Ashtau – Eight Anga – Limb Eight-limbed yoga path – Ashtanga Yoga
When we hear yoga, most people in the West think of practicing asanas. Accordingly, the focus is increased on physical practice. However, asanas are only one limb of eight!
The eight limbs are: Yama, Nijyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadi

In this workshop we will deal with the first two parts of the yoga path:
Yamas and Niyamas.
Their meaning and possible implementation in everyday life.
Yama: ethical and moral aspects. How we behave towards others.
Niyama: how we treat ourselves.
Of course, the two principles cannot be separated from each other, and one causes the other.
Each one has 4 aspects:
Yama: Satya, Asteya, Brahmacarya, AparigrahaNiyama: Shauca, Santosha, Tapas, Svadhyaya, Ishvara-pranidhana
We will look at each individual aspect and how we can integrate them into our practice and also into our everyday life.

The afternoon ends with a Yoga Nidra session, (guided deep Relaxation), and the journey will take us 1h. Afterwards you will feel refreshed like after a long deep sleep.

Saturday, March 30th
1 p.m. – 4 p.m. “Ashtanga Yoga from a female perspective“

Ashtanga yoga often has a reputation for being very “masculine”. In this workshop we will take a closer look at this and how we can achieve a balanced practice. The ideal yoga practice has female and male aspects in balance. It’s not so much about men and women, as we all have female and male parts within us. Yoga practice helps us to support and train the parts that need more attention. In this workshop we will look at what we mean by female and male aspects and how we can work with them.
Further focal points:
How can the practice be adapted to the female cycle?
How does practice change through pregnancy, birth and menopause.
How can we “grow old” with Ashtanga Yoga.
If we want to do this practice over a long period of time, these questions will arise at some point. Our bodies and our yoga practice are changing, how do we deal with this?

Part of the workshop will be a discussion and an exchange of your own experience. This workshop is open to all genders.!

The afternoon ends with a Yoga Nidra session, (guided deep Relaxation), and the journey will take us 1h. Afterwards you will feel refreshed like after a long deep sleep.

Sunday, March 31st
1 p.m. – 4 p.m. “Prana & the energetic body”
Prana is our life energy and through the practice of yoga asanas and pranayama, prana is moved, activated and strengthened in the body.
Prana can be increased and refined through physical and mental nourishment. Our perception becomes more subtle and the connection with our inner truth is strengthened. In this workshop we will hear about with basics of the “energetic body” and the koshas (the 5 energetic layers), ​​and so delve deeper into the theory of yoga practice.

The afternoon ends with a Yoga Nidra session, (guided deep Relaxation), and the journey will take us 1h.
Afterwards you will feel refreshed like after a long deep sleep.
