"Yoga is the science of uniting the body, the mind and the soul"

Yoga course


This course is comprised of the following elements:

60% wisdom talks: Yoga is a complete system of knowledge which leads to the understanding of life, oneself and the universe. Ancient Yoga philosophy/psychology teachings will be shared, that enable the awakening of the consciousness, balancing of the body, energy levels, emotions and mind, and alignment with a higher universal reality.

20% study and practice of Yoga postures: The human body is comprised of an underlying energetic distribution network made up of meridians, energy channels and thousands of energy points (chakras). When certain postures are being performed, a specific energetic alignment occurs, and the energetic structure of the body starts to shift. As a result, one's vibration is raised, supporting key emotional and mental shifts, as well as attunement with higher states of consciousness.

20% sharing and connection: An opportunity to share the deep inner transformation that participants go through, as the identification with the lower vibrations of the ego lessens and more frequent states of unconditional love, joy and peace start to occur.

Note: This course is appropriate for people who are seeking personal development. Additionally, there is extensive scientific research about the positive impacts Yoga has on depression, stress, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, emotion regulation, mental well-being, addictions, mindfulness, concentration, as well as various mental health conditions. Anyone keen to move towards a more balanced, peaceful, loving, and joyful life is welcome.
