Prenatal yoga classes in Brussels with Layakari

Layakari

For pregnant yoginis, your pregnancy is a great and unique moment to reconnect with your body and your intuition, and yoga can help you with that. Prenatal yoga classes with my colleague and friend Layakari are an adaptation of the basic Sivananda class for pregnancy special needs. In this way the future mum can benefit of the physical aspect of yoga, as well as preparing breath and mind for labor. In the classes you will learn the following:

  • Connecting with deep resources of strength and energy, with the baby and the pregnancy
  • Postural alignmentreleasing stress, tension and fatigue
    Control of the breath and breathing techniques
  • Stretching and strengthening
  • Preparing for labor
  • Relaxation

Practical info
IMPORTANT: Prenatal yoga students should have passed the first trimester to start with the lessons !
Timing: Wednesday 9:30 – 10:45 AM
Location: Sampoorna Yoga Studio 40 Rue du Houblon, 1000 Brussels

Special event on 27/01/2018 at Sampoorna Yoga Studio in Brussels, with Layakari: workshop ‘Adapting your yoga practice during your pregnancy’, more info

Treat yourself to a yoga vacation in a Sivananda ashram

I’m very lucky as will be able to go to the Sivananda ashram in Orléans next weekend. This is also where my Sivananda journey started some 6 years ago. I’m treating myself to a long weekend reconnection time with myself, yoga classes, fabulous vegan food, nature, satsangs and lectures by swamis.

Did you know you can also give yourself this gift? 

TTC 2012 Canada (82)Any time you want, you can go to an ashram near you. The Sivananda organisation has founded 9 Sivananda Ashrams around the world – in Canada, India, France, Austria, Bahamas, and the United States where you can enjoy yoga holidays (short or longer time), do your TTC, ATTC, or themed (certification) courses, as well as become a Karma Yogi.

A yoga vacation consists of more or less the same schedule as the TTC, albeit less intense: morning satsang; morning yoga (asana) class; breakfast; karma yoga; lecture; free time; afternoon yoga class; dinner; evening satsang. It’s a wonderful way to reconnect to yourself, to relax and stay healthy.

Discover an ashram near you and enjoy!

Yoga video tutorial for shoulderstand & plough poses

After the headstand comes Sarvangasana (Sanskrit: सर्वाङ्गासन), the Sanskrit name for the shoulderstand, comes from the word “sarva”, meaning whole. This asana strengthens your entire body; it gives many of the benefits of the Headstand, but here the circulation is directed to your thyroid gland instead of the head and it gives a great stimulation to your metabolism. It’s an inverted pose, with your body resting on your shoulders.

Check out the step by step asana on this page.

=> Check out this short tutorial video of Sarvangasana followed by Halasana:

A new yoga asana tutorial video available on my YouTube channel

Slowly, but surely I’m taking the time to add voiceover to my yoga videos. Today I’ve uploaded a new asana: Matsyasana or fish pose.

You’ll find more info about the pose on the dedicated page.
