NOVEMBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends,

“ To heal we need to look everywhere for our Light, turning outward and inward, to the north, the south, east and west. Walking in many worlds at once, and of course, bringing our findings back home – creating where we belong.”
 Danielle de La Porte

As we write this newsletter to you we have just experienced a weekend with the most magical full moon. Giving us time to let things go, to reflect and to be reminded of the importance of staying still – pausing and just take it all in….the moon, the change of the season and nature silently dropping its summer glory and moving into rest and stillness.

We have had a beautiful fall here and enjoyed the teachings of Chris Chavez, Simon Parks and our dear teacher and friend Jeanne Heileman.   We feel very fortunate to host and participate in their teachings as we continue to grow and evolve with you all.

 

We have two wonderful cacao ceremonies taking place this month together with our Yin Yoga teacher Emily Larkin.   This will be a special ceremony with raw, ceremonial cacao, guided meditation and yin yoga .  They will take place on Saturday 11th and also Saturday 25th November from 18.00 until 21.00. The Price for the session is 39€. If you are interested in taking part please get in touch.




We are also happy to re introduce our beginners classes on Mondays at 10-11.30am This class will be for beginners or simply for those who want to slow the pace and flow with more awareness and ease.   Karin is a teacher trained in Sweden and she is very excited to teach this beginners class. The first class begins on Monday 13 November in the small shala.



 

Since August we have been co creating and hosting the “ Art of Stillness “ with the Fundacio of Joan Miro and we have loved seeing people from all walks of life join our monthly meditations there . Our next one will be Saturday 2 December (9 - 9.45am) it is a seated meditation in front of the paintings of Joan Miro . All welcome and all donations go towards Funcacio Nazaret who work with children here on the island.



We are also proud that with the generosity of all of you we managed to raise 750 euros for the relief fund for Puerto Rico over the course of one day in October. Thank you!

Our next donation and gratitude practice here at Earth Yoga will be hosted by Mirjam Wagner and takes place on Friday 1st  December at 10am. All donations again will go towards a local charity.


 


In December we are also happy to offer a winter warming weekend with David Lurey. It will take place on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th December. To register please get in touch either by email info@earthyoga.es or come and take to us at  reception.



We look forward to sharing yoga, love and blessings with you all this month!

SEPTEMBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

Dear Yogis and Friends,

"We will be known forever by the tracks we leave "
Dakota Proverb


September is upon us and many of us are looking forward to embracing the end of a long, hot but wonderful summer. Our island has seen more visitors than ever before and we are hoping that our leaders and government will take some of the profit and turn this island into a sustainable, green and forward thinking place to visit and live.

We are also so happy to experience so many conscious visitors who have come through our doors to either keep up their yoga practice or to try yoga for the first time with us!

Our classes have been full and we are very grateful for dear regular and new yogis practicing with us.

Our schedule will be back to normal from Monday 4th September and we look forward to welcoming back our prenatal, mommy & baby classes plus our lunch yoga classes like Yin and Yoga Nidra.   Most of our regular teachers will be back by September although we are still waiting for Mateo who will be working with clients at Camino de Santiago until the middle of September. For our most up to date schedule for both our Santa Catalina and Portals studios please visit our website www.earthyoga.es


We are very happy to announce that on Saturday 2 September, we will host our first collaboration with Fundacio Joan Miro.  Inspired by MoMa in New York City we will lead a slow movement and mediation class amongst the art and paintings of Joan Miro in the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró a Mallorca (Carrer Joan de Saridakis, 29, 07015 Palma). This will be a monthly class and will take place on the first Saturday of each month.  The practice will be for all levels and donation based.    All proceeds will go towards Fundacio Nazaret, a wonderful organization that cares for orphans and children with needs here in Mallorca. After the class is over you are more than welcome to visit the museum for free.  We hope to see you there!

JULY 2017 NEWSLETTER

Dear Yogi´s,

"What if all the challenges that we are facing today is happening for us - a transformation that inspires us to change and re imagine everything we make and do - we begin to live in a different world. We take a 100 % responsibility and we stop blaming others.  We see global warming and all other challenges that we face as an invitation to build, innovate and effect change.  A pathway that awakens creativity, compassion and genius. This is not a liberal agenda, nor is it a conservative one. This is the Human Agenda."
By Paul Hawken from the book Drawdown.

Although the above quote does not necessarily touch upon the specifics of yoga, we still feel that as yoga embraces all and means union - this is very much part of our path. To take responsibility, to act and to create new pathways.   We begin with ourselves - new pathways of thinking, new pathways of breathing and movement........and then we take it beyond ourselves and into the world.

July is here and with July we are embraced by heat, the sea and many visitors taking part of the beauty that is our island. We are happy to welcome so many yogis who want to continue their yoga practice, even when they are away on holiday. Earth Yoga is open all summer and we love to meet old and new yogis on the mat every day.

In our Santa Catalina studio we will continue with most of our regular classes during the summer months, apart from the few changes mentioned here:

We have decided to switch our daytime Yin Yoga class on Mondays to Saturday Mornings.   Yin Yoga with Emily will now take place on Saturdays during the summer in the small shala at 10.30am.
Katja´s Saturday Morning Vinyasa Class will continue as usual in the large shala.  Our Yin Yoga class on Tuesday evenings at 6.15pm will remain the same.


* Mateo will take a break from his Wednesday evening Spanish Vinyasa Class through the summer and he will begin again in September .

* Our wonderful Prenatal and Mommy & Baby classes with Yasmin will have a summer break until September.

* Our Tuesday evening Hatha Yoga class with Jeanne will also take a break until September.
 


We are very happy to welcome back David Lurey to our Santa Catalina studio. He will be teaching the following classes:

Monday 31 July at 10am
Wednesday 2 August at 6.30pm
Monday 7 August at 10am
Wednesday 9 August at 6.30pm

David has been a dear teacher and friend of us since we opened our doors and his teachings are full of heart, energetic movement and sharing the depths of this practice and his love for music.



Our studio in Portals will remain open during the summer months and we are so grateful for this haven overlooking the sea in Portals .   If you are living the area of Bendinat, Portals or Cala Major - make sure to visit our studio in Portals and our dear teachers Katja, Agnes, Danae and Julia who devote their time and love there .
