Teaching a weekly yoga class in Etterbeek from 7 November

Om Brussels’ yogis & yoginis,
I’m very pleased and humble to be able to share with you that on Wednesday 7 November, I’ll start teaching a weekly 90 minute yoga class in the lovely “La Sagesse Intèrieure” center in Etterbeek. There is space for 14 students, so maximum personal attention by the teacher is guaranteed.

It would be great if you could let me know by email if you will come on the 7th.

Sharing is caring, so don’t hesitate to share this news with people that you know would like to start yoga. The class will be suitable for all levels, beginners and more advanced students. There are some yoga mats available, but please bring your own mat if you have one and wear comfortable clothing, you can change there. Your first class is 10€ only (cash only). Pictures of the location can be found here.

Navaratri festival from 15-23 October

Navaratri is one of the most celebrated festivals of India. Nav translates to ‘Nine’ and Ratri to ‘Night’ therefore meaning nine nights that are dedicated to the Divine Mother in all of her forms. The Mother Goddess is said to appear in 9 forms, and each one is worshiped for a day. These nine forms signify various traits that the goddess influences us with. The Devi Mahatmya and other texts invoking the Goddess who vanquished demons are cited. The first three days of Navaratri are dedicated to Goddess Durga (Warrior Goddess) dressed in red and mounted on a lion. Her various incarnations- Kumari, Parvati and Kali are worshipped during these days. They represent the three classes of womanhood that include the child, young girl and mature woman. Next three days are dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi ( Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity), dressed in gold and mounted on an owl and finally, last three days are dedicated to Goddess Sarasvati (Goddess of Knowledge), dressed in milky white and mounted on a pure white swan. Ashtami, Navami and Vijaydasami which is on the 9th day are celebrated as Sarasvati Puja in which books are worshipped. The books are placed for Puja on the Ashtami day in own houses, traditional nursery schools, or in temples. On Vijayadasami day, the books are ceremoniously taken out for reading and writing after worshipping Sarasvati. Vijaydasami day is considered auspicious for initiating the children into writing and reading, which is called Vidyarambham. Tens of thousands of children are initiated into the world of letters on this day.

Sirshana - headstandHaving been inspired by other yoga teachers, numerous requests from potential yoga students and a wonderful, but intense Karma Yoga retreat in the Sivananda ashram in France, I’ve decided it’s time to start teaching more yoga.
