Integrating the 5 layers to dis-cover the natural intelligence of body, breath and mind. The division between body and mind is first healed with the breath. Since the breath is closely connected to the mind (Citta), observing the breath brings consciousness to stillness. The Sushumna Nadi or the Mid-line of the body is described in Tantric texts as an empty vessel, like a flute played by Krisna. When the energy flows undisturbed through the Mid-line the mind settles into the breath and they become one. Vinyasa as in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga refers not only to movement of breath and body but also to movement of thought (citta vritti). Understanding these concepts are key for integrating all layers into our yoga practice. When our Pranayama- and Asana practice are devoted to service of the breath -our practice becomes a celebration of our true nature in the moment as it presents itself.

Friday Evening 5.30-7.30 pm, Saturday- and Sunday Morning 8-9.45: Introduction to Pranayama and Kriyas and its philospohy for new students. Deepening your understanding and personalizing your practice for those with more experience. You will build up and cultivate a self practice of pranayama to continue after the workshop. (Possibility to individualize your practice according to your constitution & intention for those with more experience).

Saturday- and Sunday Morning (following the Pranayama Class), ca 10-12 am -Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style: Within the word Stability lies the secret of Ability.We will begin each Mysore Session together dis-covering optimal alignment and placements for the Bandhas (Pranic valves) to engage, creating free flow of breath and pranic energy -embracing all layers of the practice. When focus have stabilized you will continue following and flowing with your own breathing rhythm as individuals, receiving adjustments and guidance from Kia.

It´s been a dream for so many years, and now, after months of blood(?), sweat (certainly!), tears (very late at night…) but mostly smiles (and many!) it is finally here: our own magazine -Le Yoga Shop Journal! A magazine for inspiration, exploration, meetings and conversations. Made possible with the help of our amazing, generous, talented friends and collaborators.

In our very first issue you´ll find my interview with my long-time teacher Radha, a remarkable and inspiring woman, yogi and one of our most senior Ashtanga Yoga teachers. So many of her students make up the teachers of Ashtanga today. Radha has traveled the world and journeyed deep inside in search for her truth… Read about Rahda´s Truth Search in Le Journal!

radha-warrel-yogaplus-08I´m both honored and happy to welcome Radha & Pierre for the first time in Paris for a 4-day workshop 29/4-2/5. 

If you haven´t met these teachers, this is the time! You find all the info about the workshop here.radha-yogaplus-01 copy

AGATHE PHILBÉ  in Janusirsasana A

Nom: Agathe Philbé

Âge: 29 ans

Nationalité:  Française

Métier: Photographe indépendante & professeur de yoga.

Quand et comment avez as-tu commencé le yoga?  A l’âge de 23 ans à Madrid, sur les conseils d’une amie qui m’y a emmenée. J’étais tres sceptique, mais curieuse en meme temps. Je me souviens de mon incapacité lui communiquer ce que j’avais ressenti à la sortie du 1er cours… Trop à dire et pas assez de mots !

Qu’est ce que le yoga a changé en toi?  Le yoga en tant que tel a changé d’abord le corps physique, de manière rapide et importante (surtout en pratiquant l’ashtanga !). Etre en bonne santé est pour moi l’un des dons essentiels du yoga, une chance incroyable, et la 1ere étape pour trouver un équilibre personnel. Pour le reste, c’est surtout l’intention avec laquelle je le pratique certains jours qui me permet peut-être d’évoluer vers plus d’ouverture aux autres, à mon environnement, à moi-même.

Ou trouves-tu l’inspiration pour continuer à pratiquer? Dans la pratique et l’enseignement de mes professeurs et mes amis yogis; en jouant dans la nature et en pratiquant les sports de glisse qui me passionnent (le ski hors pistes, le surf), en partageant le peu que je sais avec mes éleves.

Décrits ta pratique quotidienne en 3 mots! Jeu, curiosité, observation.

Ou vas-tu pour trouver la paix à Paris? Chez mes amis ou au bord de l’eau… dans les fous rires avec mon frère… et quand je prends sa fille de 1 mois dans mes bras !
