The Meaning and Effect of Asanas
All asanas have a physical, energetic, emotional, and spiritual impact. We illuminate these aspects, thereby creating a comprehensive and holistic deepening into the yoga system.
All asanas are related to the themes of the training. We integrate numerous different techniques for detoxifying the body and clarifying the mind into the practice. These techniques, integrated into the flows, allow you to feel their immediate effects or resonance in your own body. We create the space to learn these techniques, to experience them, and to integrate them into your own practice.
You will work through traditional hatha yoga postures mindfully, giving you the opportunity to refine your asana practice profoundly.

Breathing techniques for daily use
Effects of Breathing Techniques
Pranayama is the conscious and intentional control of breath. With every inhalation, we not only take in oxygen but also Prana (life energy). Yogic breathing exercises are often underestimated. The focused direction of Prana within the body can be used to enhance vitality, promote physical detoxification and immune defense, as well as attain inner calm, relaxation, and mental clarity.
You will learn various breathing exercises and how they work. Additionally, you will learn where to apply them. Pranayama is intended to assist you in your daily life, helping you navigate various situations more effectively through impactful techniques.
The practice of controlling the breath has a mysterious power to soothe and revitalize a tired body or a restless mind. It serves as an important bridge between the outward, active practices of yoga and the internal, surrendering practices that lead us into deeper states of meditation.

Lock the vital energy into the body
Bandhas – The Locks of the Body
In Sanskrit, the word “bandha” means to lock or tighten. It refers to the so-called “energy locks.” The energy contained within the bandhas flows throughout the entire body to create balance and assists in controlling various systems in the body, such as digestion or hormonal regulation.
Learn how to engage the bandhas (locks) to lock the vital energy into the body during practices of pranayama and asana.

4. Your path to Meditation
Meditation techniques for daily life
Meditation Techniques for Everyday Life
What sets meditation apart from relaxation techniques? There are many different relaxation techniques that mostly target specific areas of the body— the physical body, the realm of thoughts, or the realm of emotions. Meditation aims at a fourth, physical level: the Self. Meditation relaxes all levels of a human being. The techniques of meditation lead us to self-awareness, self-control, and self-unfoldment, with the goal of experiencing and realizing the divine Self (Atma) within us.
You will learn to navigate your own path in meditation. With various techniques, we assist you in progressing systematically in your meditation practice. We explore different meditation techniques that you can apply in your everyday life.
The meditation techniques in this program include powerful meditations to break down blockages on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level, relaxation, awareness of the body and the breath, manifestation, and mantra.

5. Healing Relationships
The System «Yoga in Daily Life»
Healing Relationships With Your Parents
Relationships are not part of your life…but life is relationships. Among all your relationships, the most important one is your relationship with your parents, whether they are alive or not. Your relationship with your parents determines your relationship with everybody else thereafter.
Many of us believe that the best way to deal with a relationship or heal a relationship is to cut a relationship. There is a very simple and effective way to heal any relationship and to allow for forgiveness to fully take place.
Healing Relationships With Your Partner.
Attracting The Right Partner Into Your Life
Extraordinary and loving relationships do not come to you because you are lucky. Loving, long-lasting, meaningful, healthy relationships are the results of clarity, consistent work and determination. Discover the secrets to create a truly extraordinary relationship.
6. Chanting and Mantra
Where words become a song for the soul
That are the benefits of chanting?
When chanting mantras the mind releases the positive energy that decreases the negative thoughts or stress. This is an ancient practice that calms the mind and soul and can decrease anxiety and depressive symptoms in the human body.
Immerse yourself deeply in the ocean of nāda (sound) and ancient mantras. Through vocal training, right rhythm, proper pronunciation of repeated recitation of powerful mantras and singing sacred sound over a longer period of time a wonderful meditative space will be created.
