ABOUT THE YOGA METHOD
After just a few classes you will understand why this panda is showing you the way 😉
The aim of this yoga method is a therapy of both body and mind, not a performance.
We build the complete posture from the foundations rather than local movements of separate body parts.
During the class lots of focus is given to what can be done outside the class – in other words: how to use our bodies respectfuly in our everyday life, not only on the yoga mat.
MEET THE TEAM
Dedicated yoga teacher, medical doctor & devoted Vipassana meditator
I have been practising hatha yoga (mainly Iyengar style) for more than 16 years with many great teachers. I received teacher training in Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in India (conducted by Sharat Arora who has been an assistant of BKS Iyengar for 7 years), where I stayed for a few months.
Right now I am focusing on 2 topics that interest me the most: yoga therapy and evidence-based lifestyle medicine.
I conduct yoga therapy classes for people with all kinds of body constitutions.
Explorer, technologist, dedicated meditator and in service
After a rough start wandering across the globe while engineering in search of meaning, health and mind issues have forced me to dive in and explore my inner world. Of the myriads of possible tools I tried, only one clearly stood out : Vipassana meditation.
This made me understand that although the straight line is always the shortest way from one point to another that is precisely what we all avoid in our lives. We find ourselevs stuck, in danger or burning the candle from both sides.

YOGA AT WORK
Our classes are especially beneficial for office workers. The posture which most of people have while working in the office is disastreous for the health and by the time the first symptoms occur it might be quite late. During the class you will learn not only how to remain healthy posture but also how to reduce the stress level and feel better in your body,
If you are interested in coroprate classes do not hesitate to contact us.
A one-to-one session of exchange that will help you go beyond the noise of what your mind tells you you want. Once free from this mental slavery, you will get a chance to to hear your intuition telling what you need !

YOGA FOR BROKEN BACKS
The way we live our lives is a big challenge for our bodies.
Long hours spent on a chair slowly sum up and sooner or later our mistreated bodies fire back with a back pain that can lead to even less activity, which leads to even more back pain, which leads to even less activity and so on. These classes will give you the tools to get out of this vicious circle.
HOW TO SLEEP WELL…? DEEP RELAXATION CLASS
The way we live our lives does not make it easy to rest and sleep well.
Phone calls, emails, family’s duties, work’s duties, to-do lists, conversations- all of them whirl in our mind when we lay down in bed and try to rest or sleep. Due to stress and poor posture the body gets tensed up and even if eventually we manage to fall asleep, we wake up all tensed and tired.
These classes will give you the tools to relax, rest and build a deeper connection with your body.
