Kids yoga in Brussels, season 2018/19

_MG_2010For all the yogi families out there:  the Sampoorna Yoga Studio kids yoga classes are on a summer break, but find out here about the plans for the autumn semester:
There will be two kids yoga groups, both for ages 4-7.
  • Saturdays at 11:30-12:30, with Samira, in French.
  • Sundays at 10:30-11:30, with Laura, in Dutch.
The semester starts on 22/23 September and comprises of 13 classes. There are no kids classes during school holidays.

 

What makes the Sampoorna yoga kids classes extra interesting are the parallel adults classes, suitable for all levels. While kids are having fun in their playful yoga class downstairs, parents can practice yoga in the adults class upstairs.
Parents can benefit from an Accompanying Adult subscription (same price as kids for 13 classes), or use their regular Sampoorna Yoga Studio pass.
  • More information on Kids Yoga classes
  • Reserve a place for your kids – we have limited places (max. 10 kids in a group) so register quickly to secure your spot.
The entire Sampoorna Yoga Studio team hopes to welcome your whole family in September!

Join the Brussels Yoga Mala 2018: 108 Sun Salutations for charity

Since 2010, a bunch of very motivated yogins in Brussels organize the Yoga Mala around the Summer Solstice. All participants donate some money and all the proceeds go to a charity. Why 108 ? Good question, Shiva Rea has written a beautiful article about it, read it here.

So please join in on Sunday morning, 17 June 2018, as the Yoga community comes together for the 9th time in a celebration of the unity of Yoga to raise money for charity (cause still to be decided).

As we welcome the Summer Solstice let us offer our gratitude to life by saluting and honouring the Sun. We will practice a Yoga Mala, a prayer in motion of 108 rounds of Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutations).

Sun Salutations_Sivananda YogaThe practice will be a meditative flow, and whether we as individuals are able to do 1 or 108 rounds, the importance lies in our participation and intention – as a collective we will complete the Mala. There will be different teachers leading the rounds of Surya Namaskar, the practice is the Sivananda Hatha Yoga tradition.

Being there together in a spirit of loving-kindness, peace and joy is what it’s all about. And who knows what wonders will come from that…

The event is family-friendly, so children, partners and grandparents are warmly welcome. There will be Yoga for kids in parallel with the Mala, and other fun activities. Tea and biscuits for after!

You can also make a difference, so come and make it happen together with the Brussels’ yoga community.

Practical information:
Date: Sunday 17 June 2018
Time: 10h30 until approximately 12h00
Venue: Autoworld Museum Mezzanine, Cinquantenaire Park
Cost: EUR 2 Museum entrance fee, plus a donation for charity. The suggested donation is at least EUR 10, but we appeal to everyone to give what they can.
What to bring: yoga mat, bottle of water, open heart and lots of energy!

“O nourishing sun,

Solitary traveller, controller,

Source of life for all creatures, spread your light

And subdue your dazzling splendour

So that I may see your blessed Self.

Even that very Self am I!”

Isha Upanishad 16
