Katonah Yoga with Diana Paschal

Sunday, March 31 | 10:30h | 25€

The Body as a House: A Katonah inspired Yoga practice

Using Katonah Yoga techniques and imagination, we will break a sweat as we embody poses that help us to become balanced, buoyant, well-adjusted and centered. Katonah Yoga, developed from Taoist theory and sacred geometry, uses metaphors to reveal our embodied first nature and to potentiate our second nature. How you move through a forward bend, reflects how you move forward in life. The physical practice focuses on moving from our joint space for a sustainable, structurally stable pose that allows chi to move through. Poses are held, analyzed, adjusted and embodied for more insight. This class offers new maps to review traditional asanas to find longevity in our physical body. We always finish with breath work to still the waves of the mind and feel our radiance.

Blisspoint Journey with Lisa de Narvaez

Tuesday, April 09 | 19h | 45€

The ultimate meditation hack for the 21st century human.

BlissPoint Breathwork is an active meditation that consists of a simple, two-part breath sequence. With the support of an intentionally curated soundscape embedded with customized frequencies, Lisa skillfully guides you into an “Above Mind” state of being that gives you access to the realization of the transcendent dimension within yourself.

In a culture that is based on the pursuit of happiness, we can easily find ourselves on the eternal hamster wheel of “more, better, faster”. It has us believing that something outside of our selves will give us the peace and contentment that we long for. This “if, then, when” paradigm keeps us transfixed in ways that prevent us from experiencing the present moment. It is by developing this capacity of presence, by getting “out of our minds” and exploring non ordinary states of consciousness consciously, that we learn how to consistently and sustainably tap into our ever-present access to true joy. Tapping into this deep well of wisdom, beyond that of our limited minds, is game changing.

Lisa de Narvaez is a seasoned breathwork facilitator, NYU certified coach and human design specialist. Her experiential style, combining decades of global travel driven by continued studies and a deepening of her own personal understanding of evolutionary systems, have manifested into the creation of BLISSPOINT BREATHWORK. Her trailblazing methodology combining her love of human design + coaching + breathwork have made her a crowd favorite among prestigious organizations such as Summit Series, Habitas, MAC, Well+Good and Bloomberg, amongst other emerging communities and private clients around the world.

Home & Heart Workshop

Saturday, May 11 | 10:30-12:30h | 15€

The HOME series of workshops were developed by Ella Mesma on her company (Ella Mesma Company) during the creation of dance productions to facilitate the telling of the performers stories and use movement as a healing tool. They have evolved into a series of 7 workshops inspired by the chakra system to unleash the dancer inside all of us.

Ella Mesma uses movement and meditation to find the unique voice of each person she works with. She can facilitate anyone; with or without a dance background to stand in their power and learn to listen and open their hearts using movement in a safe environment. Just like nature, we all have our natural and unique talents to share with the world, and Ella Mesma loves to use beautiful music, meditation and imagination to draw these out and come home to who we are and how we move authentically.

SACRED: Pleasure and Shadows “Celebrate your inner goddess”

Inspired by the Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana), SACRED is a transformative women’s only workshop to worship you! SACRED uses fertility dances, yoga and explorative dance to explore and experience our emotions, the ‘shoulds’ and ‘should nots’, pleasure and boundaries in an unashamed and delicious way. Connect to your divine feminine wisdom in this womb focused movement meditation. For women of all ages and experiences.

Comes with a complimentary Chakra PDF about how to further work on opening your sacral chakra.

Quotes from class:

“The safe atmosphere she created, interacting with everyone, making her points, explanations and directions very clear, accessible to everyone. It felt like you were entering a different universe, more chilled than the outside world”. Lia: Participant at the HOME Series in Bristol

“I thoroughly enjoyed Ella’s invitation to seek deeper, to ground further into the inner expression of myself. A mindful workshop to root in your own dance”. Agüi Garcia in Lisbon

“Ella’s HEART workshops are a unique combination of yoga, tango and dance/contact improvisation techniques mixed seamlessly so that anyone can benefit. The workshop I attended had participants aged from 20-70 with varying degrees of dance backgrounds. It was a privilege to see everyone working and creating together with genuine joy. Ella has the ability to allow each individual to shine and to reach their creative potential. A rare and precious gift. I can honestly say it was a transformative experience-it won’t change your life but it may change the way you live it”. Natalie Teitler in London
