Disconnection is a cultural epidemic. We are taught to control the body by way of the mind, which is considered superior. But the body has an intelligence whose mysteries the mind has yet to fathom. We read in books how to eat, how much sleep to get, and impose these practices on the body rather than listening from within.
Without the body as a unifying figure of existence we become fragmented. We repress our aliveness and become machine like, easily manipulated. We lose our testing ground for truth.

“It’s authentic, clean, pure, very spiritual, the food is simple but good, the rooms are clean and comfortable. You can empty your busy mind here during the collective meditations, you can do karma yoga, talk with Swami Ji during the satsang and they have a library full of inspirational books. If you want to find peace and feel the connection with yourself and the universe, this is the place to go to.” ~Goedele Leyssen
Nathalie teaches from her heart and the tradition of Yoga, she will guide you on a journey back home. She combines traditional asanas and the eight limbs of yoga with inspiring music and focused breathing, to create a welcoming, loving environment in which every moment on the mat is an opportunity to nourish, heal and create the life we seek.
The solar morning meditation and asana practice will be dynamic and energizing and the lunar afternoon/evening practice will focus on rejuvenation and deep rest.
