A growing body of scientific evidence suggests, that our well-being is tightly related to the proper functioning of our organs and glands, affecting all physiological functions of our bodies, feeding the signal of equilibrium and relative harmony back to us. However, occasionally, mistakes happen and problems arise. How can we use the yoga practice to keep these rhythms and mechanisms in check? The answer, we believe, lies within us and that with guided body postures, breathing, meditation and visualization techniques and even finger mudras, yoga offers a comprehensive repertoire of techniques that target all hard to reach planes of our body. Mediterranean atmosphere around provides relaxation for all the senses.
Isabella Welsch or another atha yoga teacher guides the group through a program, with carefully designed atha yoga-classes on an intermediate level. She teaches her own, modern blend of different styles. At this Workshop, we teach a special sequence for organs and hormonal glands, which is also suitable for beginners. We need to know a bit about physical and psychological fitness of a participant: Please let us know ahead if you have any conditions.
Note: Classes are taught english and german.
