In April 2016 I’ve spent 2 weekends (and 2 Friday afternoons) with a bunch of enthusiastic yogins in Brussels studying anatomy and yin yoga postures with Joe Barnett.
Not only did we have a lot of fun while doing it, we’ve learned so much in little time. Joe is a very experienced and fun teacher who made the sometimes complex human body a very interesting topic to say the least. He taught us about the important differences that exist in each and everyone and that every human body is unique and to respect this uniqueness. The TTC was incredibly complimentary to the yin yoga TTC I’ve taken with Sarah Powers in 2014.
All in all, I’m very grateful to have been able to study with Joe and the other yogins and look forward to share this teachings (and his teacher Paul Grilley’s teaching) with my students.

This Wednesday 30 March 2016 I’ll replace the resident teacher Asha at the wonderful Sampoorna Yoga Studio for a 90 minute yin yoga class. I’ll be teaching a Heart, Lung & Intestine meridian focused class and hope you’ll join too.
If you’d like to know more about the Yin Yoga TTC I took with Sarah Powers in 2014, you can read it here.
This Friday I’ll start another Yin Yoga TTC with Joe Barnett, part of a 2 long weekend training.
Feel free to join the class (no need to pre-register), come to Sampoorna Yoga Studio.
Better late than never, I’ve received my Yin Yoga certificate after completing the 80 hours Yin Yoga & Mindfulness TTC with the wonderful Sarah & Ty Powers in France in 2014. Thanks to this TTC I’ve been able to incorporate the poses and teachings in my regular yoga classes and notice that students love the deeper poses despite the obvious physical and mental blockages that sometimes hinder them with this practice. It’s about letting go and going deeper inside to release blocked energy from the meridians, organs and nadis and stretch the connective tissues.
“The Yin practice is an inward practice of receptivity that targets the regeneration of the Yin tissues through a passive static practice.”

Exploring the impact of skeletal variations on your hatha yoga practice.
In this anatomy-oriented workshop you will learn more about how different body structures can affect our asana practice, and how you can take your unique shape into account to grow and develop safely in your personal practice.
The workshop has a practical approach rather than a theoretical one. We will explore our own bodies in specific asanas, compare and embrace our unique ranges of motion, learn to recognise the difference between tension and compression, and how this knowledge can deepen our yoga practice.
The workshop is led by Eknath, Certified Sampoorna Yoga Teacher (E-RYT500). Eknath studied with anatomy expert Paul Grilley (USA) during his Yin Yoga Teacher Training in 2011 – 2012 and 2013.
Location: Sampoorna Yoga Studio, rue du Houblon 40, 1000 Brussels
Date & time: Saturday 24/10/2015 from 3-6PM.
Price: 45€ (or 35€ unemployed/ student)
