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 .

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.
