Connect to your source by shedding your heavy winter energy and tune in with the lightness of spring! This shift of blossoming and rebirth offers a powerful opportunity to reset. For three weeks, starting Wednesday April 14th, together we will let ancient Ayurvedic wisdom guide us towards our personal version of clarity, lightness, ease and peace. It is as much a physical as a mental and energetic reset. Anyone can join and the circle is free! We will have a telegram group and check in with each other and our progress on zoom every fourth day. The first introductory session takes place on Wednesday April 14th at 19/7pm on zoom. Get in touch to sign up!

This course focuses especially on the various Surya Namaskar of the Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga traditions and their diverse expressions of physical and subtle energy. The ten lessons that run over two weeks are 67€ total or you can sign up by the week for 35€. To sign up get in touch.
• Dynamic Pelvic Floor Awareness Course (zoom) •
The pelvic floor is our Earth connection. At the core of this connection we seek to maintain simultaneous Sthira and Sukha: steady support and supportive ease. Not sure of how your pelvic floor is doing? That’s a great reason to do our upcoming course where we will assess and explore the pelvic floor and how the rest of the body is affected by it – as well as the other way around. Because the ways we sit, stand, move and breathe all influence the way our pelvic floor functions. Join us as we explore what support and foundation means in a physical, energetic and emotional sense.
The course will take place on Zoom every Monday over five weeks at 20-21 CET, starting Monday March the 15th and costs 35€ per person. Maintaining a healthy pelvic floor is essential for everybody, but especially important for new mums and those planning to conceive. If you are pregnant and would like to take part, please mention this so we can discuss if it’s possible for you. Get in touch for the details and to sign up.
• Sattvic Circle •
A Sattvic purification is a yogic cleanse that in a very non-aggressive way allows us to understand better what ideal nourishment of our bodies (as well as minds and souls) looks like. This January we will go through a three week Sattvic Purification circle, where together we take time away from the regular ways we go about with our bodies – eating, moving, being – to see if we can come closer in alignment with just what we need to maintain clarity, lightness and ease within and without. Starting on January the 6th with our first zoom meeting at 21/9pm, the purification process begins on the 7th and from then on we will speak every third evening to check in how we are doing and to support each other. It’s free to take part and all sessions happen online so you can join from wherever you are. Get in touch with me to join!
• Ayurvedic Flows •
As part of our Sattvic Purification Circle we deepen our understanding of the Doshas, an integral part of Samkhya philosophy, through movement and breath – join these sessions of Ayurvedic Flows as we explore how we feel and relate with each of these distinct, yet within us intrinsic, energies. Sessions: VATA 14.1.21, PITTA 22.1.21 and KAPHA 26.1.21 (zoom).
• Entering the Darkness Yin Yoga course •
During December I will offer a four week Entering the Darkness Yin Yoga course. The sessions will take place on Mondays at 20:30 and finish on the darkest night of the year, December 21st, the Winter Solstice. Yin yoga is a practice of letting go of activity and surrendering to stillness in the body and the mind. Midst the darkest time of the year, stepping back and slowing down allows us to reconnect, centre and find our own light burning within. This course will take place in Palermo and online simultaneously. The sessions fall on the following dates: November 30th. December 7th, 14th and 21st. Price is 35€ for all four sessions if you attend the course in person and 25€ for attending it virtually. To book, click here.
