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 .

With love

MAY 2017 NEWSLETTER

Dear Yogis,

" Choice is the fundamental part of being a human being. It is also the power we have as human beings. Everyone should learn that the power of choices that you make has infinite consequences on the world around you.  From the smallest choice to the biggest choice.   And we realize that the smaller choices we make everyday may in fact be the choices that impact the world we live in the most."  Inspired by Caroline Myss


May is upon us and it seems for many of us, time is speeding up and we are now realizing that summer is soon here, choices need to be made, and with the light and sun our energy increases but we are also pulled in many more directions.   We would love to inspire you to listen deep within, do the things that make you grow and nurture you . See where you can perhaps lend a helping hand, reach out and nurture not only the one you are helping but also yourself.

This month,  Earth Yoga together with Lucky Bodies and almost 30 performers are hosting a One Night Benefit Concert with all proceeds going to ProeMaid and Dignity 360 .    These are two amazing organizations that not only send aid but also physically travel to the areas where refugees come in rafts and rescue them from the seas.    It will be an inspirational evening which will include Music, Theatre, Yoga and Poetry.  Leaving us all with hope that we can indeed do something, your choices do matter.    We have managed to book the theatre Sa Nostra in the centre of Palma and we really hope to see many of you there. 
We have many teachers and students from Earth Yoga participating and all money will go towards helping the refugees. Friday 19th May at 8pm. Tickets cost : 45€


Also on Friday 19th May, we are so proud to present guest teachers Alan Finger, Sarah Platt Finger and Ulrica Norberg for a whole day workshop at Earth Yoga.   Alan Finger has been a leading yoga teacher and influence in the yoga world for over 40 years and continues to inspire and develop his teachings through ISHTA Yoga.   Sara Platt Finger and Ulrica Norberg have both been teaching for the past 20 years and have deep roots in both Vinyasa, Yin and now ISHTA Yoga.    This will be a rare opportunity to meet these yogis in person and a day to develop and nurture your own practice.



 


We are incredibly happy to welcome Desiree Rumbaugh and her husband Andrew Rivin here for the weekend of 26 - 28 May. They will offer 4 different workshops and you can sign up for the entire weekend or individual sessions . They are world known teachers and through their experiences and way of incorporating yoga as a healing practice not only for themselves but for thousands of students, we feel very honored to have them join us.    Desiree is one of Brent's teacher and if you need more information on her and her partner you can look for their teachings at Wanderlust Festivals on Youtube and many other venues.


 


We are also pleased to offer a Cacao Ceremony mets Yin Yoga here at Earth Yoga this coming Saturday 6 MayIt will be a blend between the cacao ceremony and YIN with our dear teacher Emily Larkin and we are sure it will be a wonderful afternoon together.


 

Last but not least, our teacher Jeanne Heileman is returning to Earth Yoga again to teach a deepening of the practice of yoga , not only through asana but with involved look at the teachings of the sacred text of Bhagavad Vita.   Every day will begin with a physical asana practice and then move into the afternoon with studies and lectures on the Bhagavad Gita and lectures of the Yoga Philosophy. This ongoing study will take place from Monday 29 May until Saturday 3 June. For more information please contact us either at reception or by email info@earthyoga.es


 

A good friend of Sandra is offering his services as a Zen Coach . BRING YOUR SOUL is made up of Kristina and Richard Lindström. They want to bring adventure, clarity and power into everyday living with the help of Feng Shui, Zen Coaching and mindful  awareness in the present moment. For more information please contact : www.bringyoursoul.se or email kristina@bringyoursoul.se / richard@bringyoursoul.se

With regard to our regular schedule,  we have decided to offer our healing meditation with Jeanne Lurie right after our 10 - 11.30 Mindful Vinyasa class on Thursdays. Jeanne will offer a healing meditation with the intent of not only healing ourselves but also the world that is in such need of healing right now. Please join us in this meditation and join the wave of seekers of consciousness in creating a more enlightened and sustainable planet. It is the highest gift you can offer to yourself and to the planet to come, sit and to meditate.  The meditation will take about 25 minutes and it is offered with a suggested donation of 5€. This will begin on Thursday 4 May.

We have also changed the evening of our Yin Yoga class with Emily.  It will now take place on Tuesday evenings at 6.30pm in the small shala. This change will begin on Tuesday 9 May.

Happy Spring dear friends, stay connected.

With Love and Gratitude

APRIL 2017 NEWSLETTER

Dear Yogis,

"The Yogi, the Seer, the Shaman, the One that knows.....helps put the soul back into the world and helps to create a world that talks back to us, one where we hear the trees, rivers, mountains and clouds talk back to us"

As we move deeper in the transition from winter to spring we also learn and feel that balance needs to be a part of all we do. Warm and cold, darkness and light, active and still, dynamic and softness.

Part one of the 300 hour Advanced Tantra Flow Teacher Training with Jeanne Heileman has just been completed and it has been a privilege to watch growth, connection and more knowledge gained by our yogis taking this training. A big thank you to those of you who participated and to Jeanne for sharing her knowledge, wisdom and love for yoga. We also loved having Petros from Jivamukti Yoga here with us sharing his passion for yoga.  

We are currently in the middle of hosting our Yoga Boost where 4 paths of yoga meet yogis from other parts of Europe to inspire and learn about Hatha Yoga with Malin, Kundalini yoga with Linda, Ishta yoga with Sarah and Vinyasa yoga with Sandra. We will be hosting our third Yoga Boostfrom 4 - 7 July. This is open to all levels and is a wonderful chance to try different paths of yoga. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.
