Traditional practice of yoga postures. A typical hatha class includes: mini meditation, warm up, sun salutations, exploration of (static) postures, stretching & final relaxation.
More informative class aimed at understanding, perfecting and integrating each posture. A way of dissecting the basic postures in order to achieve them without hurting yourself & in the fairest possible way.
The pace of this class is very slow. The postures are practiced passively (with the help of bolsters & blocks). This allows to have a “cold” approach, to aim for the elasticity of our fascias (connective tissues) & to sharpen our meditation skills.
Meditation technique based on relaxation to release mental traffic. Translated as “Yoga of Sleep”, yoga nidra trains you to put the body (brain & all the rest of the body) physiologically asleep but to keep your mind alert and present.

What is yoga?
« I’m stiff as a stake yoga is not for me »
And yes, yoga is often reduced to its physical practice and its perfect postures that flood Instagram & wellness ads.
Yet yoga is an ancestral discipline of more than 5000 years (yes yes Instagram did not exist at that time, no need to attract attention to increase your likes). At that time there was only the cross-legged sitting posture.
Bringing together the oldest Vedic traditions, Patanjali (400 BC) established the framework of the philosophy of yoga according to 8 characteristics: the moral code (relational attitudes), individual behaviors to be cultivated, postures (physical), breathing ( energy management), internalization, observation, concentration and meditation (liberation).
« The postures are therefore only one-eighth of the world of yoga! »
These 8 characteristics are each of the tools to arrive at the state of « yoga », that is to say the union of the body & the spirit. The union of our soul with the expanse of the universe. This feeling of becoming one with everything.
