November – cultivating the inner light

Dear yoginis and yogis,

our last monthly workshop took place just after the Indian festival of Diwali, and so it was placed under the theme of ”light”. We used a picture to visualise the colours and places of the chakras and practiced tratak (candle-gazing), as well as some exercises to recharge the solar plexus with [...]

October – golden days

Dear yoginis and yogis,

Autumn has begun on a mild note, at least in France and England, and I am excited to see that yoga is receiving a lot of interest from ever more people – for specific health issues (like fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis), or at the workplace. I recently wrote an article for [...]

Dear Yoginis and yogis,

Happy Labour Day and merry month of May to all of you out there. The retreat at Quercia Calante, a great place in Umbria, perfectly equipped for yoga retreats, has been a big success! Lots of happy faces and many precious memories in such a short time – even a long [...]

March – spring is renewal

Dear yoginis and yogis,

March means winter is over, and in Paris the cherry trees are blossoming. Spring is the best season for “detoxing”, getting rid of toxins accumulated with too rich food and too little fresh air for city dwellers over the winter. Whether it be a juice fast, an advanced yogic cleansing technique [...]
