SUNDAY YOGA

On Sunday, 5th of March I will be teaching a Flow Yoga class in the lovely studio at Herman's.

We will explore the concept of BALANCE in a playful way. We will try to attempt this delicate feeling of BALANCE, connecting to our roots but still feeling light and calm. BALANCE is not a physical or mental state we can sustainably achieve and master. Finding inner and outer BALANCE rather is a constant dance, a beautiful practice of feeling steadiness and ease.

POETRY INTO THE SOUL

'Come to the edge', he said.

'We can't, we're afraid!' they responded.

'Come to the edge', he said.

'We can't, We will fall' they responded.

'Come to the edge', he said.

And so they came.

And he pushed them.

And they flew.

Guillaume Apollinaire

 

OUTDOOR YOGA IN NATURE

Looking at this photo of Sarah practicing the yogic asana pose 'Virabhadrasana II' in front of the Akropolis shows that yoga and architecture don't exclude each other. Sarah, certified yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance) and former team member of Swiss-Architects, offers individual yoga classes which can also be held outside in summer.

 

Sarah Mai teaches yoga not only in different studios, she also visits the students. You can start the day practicing asanas on your own roof top terrace in order to wake up body and mind. Sun salutations wake vitalize, balancing exercises on one leg improve your focus and breath work supports concentration. 

 

You could also find a shady spot in a nearby park and practice yoga during lunch break. Gentle movement in fresh air are an ideal compensation to office work at the computer.

 

Lessons are charged: CHF 120.00 for at least 3 people.
