We invite you to join us in this unique Yoga workshop that offers ways to bring together meaningful Yoga practice into your daily living.
Offering the wonders of breathing and self grounding in face of effort and tension. A practice with less stress, and more softness.
In the workshop we will explore 3 main themes :
Vayus Gates - 10 vital winds leading to a stable, powerful yoga practice
Three simple, yet vital steps to work with clear intention in the practice. Steps that can be applied in every environment, on and off the mat.
How nature springs from within - visualizing natural wonders will reveal the essential role nature plays for our inner being and grounded self to thrive and our breath and movement to become deeper and more graceful.

A brief explanation of the Vayus:
The vayus (winds) are the core of ancient yogic practice that was lost over time. Only a few vague descriptions in ancient Sanskrit texts remain from this practice.
Practicing vayus in pranayama and asana reconnects body and soul, mind and movement.
Matan has been researching and practicing the vayus for more then 12 years and slowly uncovering inspiring aspects of the mysteries of this profound, powerful practice.
