Thursday evening outdoor yoga, pranayama and meditation

classes on 6, 13, 20 July and 10 and 17 August (weather permitting)
20.- francs per class
In this series of 5 classes we will explore the special benefits of practising yoga outdoors.
There has been some interesting scientific research about how spending time outdoors can promote physical and psychological well-being. Yoga philosophy has also recognised this: prana (the concept of life force, or vitality) is said to exist throughout the natural world, and by practising yoga outdoors we place ourselves in direct contact with it. Prana naturally flows through the human body but can become depleted due to, for example, illness or stress. The classes will focus on how we can restore a sense of vitality and equilibrium using movement, meditation and breathing exercises (pranayama).
The classes are open to all levels, including beginners. Classes are in English and/or French as needed. Mats are provided.
We will be practising at 1500 metres, surrounded by pasture (and cows!). You might also like to bring a jumper or a blanket for the relaxation/meditation section of the class.
Please reserve by sending an SMS to 078 889 2918. In case of bad weather I will contact you to let you know whether we can still run the class or not.
