Yoga

“When the surface of a lake is calm, you can see the bottom very clearly, but it is impossible when the surface is agitated by waves. In the same way, when the mind is calm, without desires and without waves of thought, you can see your Self.”

– SWAMI VISHNUDEVANANDA about Yoga

Yoga

Union of the individual soul with universal consciousness

In Sanskrit, Yoga means “union”: union of the individual soul with universal consciousness.

Originally from India, this age-old practice is now more commonly referred to in the West as postural forms derived from Hatha Yoga, one of the traditional branches.

It’s a discipline of the body and mind that contains many different exercises and techniques, such as:

 

  • Postures, or asana,
  • Breathing practices, or pranayama,
  • Meditation,
  • Deep relaxation, or yoga nidra.

Self-discovery

But above all, it is a journey from oneself, through oneself, towards oneself (Bhagavad Gita). As the practice progresses, we learn to know ourselves better, so that we can apply this better perception in our daily lives.

Generally speaking, yoga helps you feel better about your body. It calms the mind and helps you to let go.

I offer group sessions in the Sundgau region of Alsace, as well as private sessions, in-company sessions throughout the Haut-Rhin and in Switzerland, and occasional themed workshops.
