What will you learn in this course?

Yoga is both about learning, and maybe even more, about 'unlearning'. Our approach to yoga is traditional, while being adapted to modern needs. This course is a truly transformational, profound experience in which you will learn besides the more common Asana practice, many subtle and powerful yogic techniques like pranayama, yoga nidra, kundalini practices, meditation, etc. At the same time the course is intended to awaken from within the fire of the soul, the wisdom that is already within and to recognize the Unity of what we are already.​ During the course, we combine traditional Yoga, with occasional other activities and ceremonies like cacao ceremony, ecstatic dance, heart circles and other very fun activities:)

'I can honestly say that all classes and lectures were so carefully tailored and given at the exact needed time during the course for us to learn, truly embody the new knowledge and access new life understandings and revelations. This alone is very inspiring to me as I felt I was so carefully cared for, while beautifully challenged to grow into who I am today after this course. I have so much gratitude for all of you, for your availability at any time and ability to hold space for us to go through this transformative experience. As well as for sharing your knowledge with such generosity, and guiding us to rediscover our inner light, for showing us what Yoga is really about, and together, embodying the union of our minds, bodies and hearts.' - Nepheli Galgos, 2021

Teachers

We,Floris and Paulina met in 2011 in Thailand and have been sharing ever since the path of yoga and meditation. We have found that a daily practice and a yogic life style brings deep transformation, peace and light. Ever since we met, we have been dedicating ourselves to yoga by living in ashrams, yoga communities/schools and giving and taking many courses in meditation and various Hatha yoga styles. 

Together it is our wish to lift each other up and to pass on the yogic path and teachings, sharing these incredible and ancient techniques and vision. Our intention is to awaken the inner guidance,wisdom and perfection that resides in each of our hearts.
