Dear Yogis,

"The important thing is this; to be able, at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become"
Charles Du Bos

We are blown away how fast this month has flown by and now we are already embarking on the second month of 2017. We can all feel the winds of change in the air but also the strong, courageous voices who are standing up for core values, love and empathy. We felt so much inspiration during the month of January, the amount of focus and dedicated practice and all the kindness that we are blessed with sharing here everyday at Earth Yoga.

Through your help we received and shipped off 4 car loads of warm clothes, shoes and boots for the refugees struggling with the cold in Greece. Our dear friend Almu initiated the project and Earth Yoga and Lucky Bodies became the collection point for about 2 weeks . We were overwhelmed by the amount of clothes and shoes that were brought in - Thank You !


We also hosted a Yin donation class with Mirjam Wagner who beautifully led us through 2 hours of stillness, chanting and Yin poses. All the donations ( almost 500 euros ) went to the Organization Ca'n Gaza here on the island.   Again a heartfelt Thank You for your generosity and Mirjam for her care and love.

We will continue with the path of Giving throughout February. This will be through our mobile care and donation box. We are collaborating again with Lucky Bodies & Happy Souls and together we will organize that the donation box moves from a different location each week for 8 weeks. We hope to raise as much money as we can to share with Dignity 360 another organization here on the island who work closely with the ground aid in Greece for Refugees. Next week that Box will be at the Lucky Bodies studios and we would love if you could not only give a small donation but also take a photo of you with the box #mallorcahumanity and share on the Mallorca Humanity Facebook page.   After the 8 weeks are up we plan to host a one time charity event in April where we will weave Music, Yoga, Drama, Photography and Dance in an evening to benefit the refugees. For more information please do get in touch with either Earth Yoga or Lucky Bodies & Happy Souls.

This month we are excited to host Yoga Teacher Anabel on Saturday 11 February for a Backbends Workshop.   Anabel has taught all over the world and most recently lived in Costa Rica where she taught both Vinyasa Yoga and other styles of yoga.   She is excited to share her practice with you with the influence of Tai Chi principles and moving deep into the spine and deeper into backbends.


David Lurey and Mirjam Wagner will be hosting their advanced Teacher Training here at Earth Yoga from Saturday 4 until Saturday 18 February. All of our classes will remain as normal, there just may be some more activity in the studio.

We have added an extra class to our schedule starting on Tuesday 8 February at 12pm. Jeanne Lurie will be teaching a 
50 + Hatha Yoga Class

Soft gentle stretches for tired and achy backs and joint

We are also very excited to confirm that our dear Jeanne Heileman is returning to Earth Yoga in March for Part 1 of her Tantra Flow 300 Hour Training while she is here she will be teaching an Inversion Workshop. The workshop will allow you to dive into the deeper layers and component parts for accessing inversions. Do not miss her as she is only here limited time!

and last but certainly not least, we have just received confirmation that Petros Haffenrichterfrom Germany will join us with inpsirational teachings in March. Petros is a world known Jivamukti teacher and musician who came to a sold out event at Earth Yoga two years ago. Now he will be back and be sure to not miss this inspiration and inspiring teacher. Petros will teach two of Sandra's regular classes on Wednesday 15 March - 18.30-20.00 and Monday 20th March10-11.30 am.  In addition he will be hosting a workshop weekend on 24 - 26 March

Dear Friends,

"The Peace of Wild things"
When despair of the world grows in me and I wake at night at the least sound
In Fear of what my life and my children's life may be ,
I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in her beauty on the water,
and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with
forethought or grief.

I come into the presence of still water .
And I feel above me the day -blind stars waiting with their light.
For a time , I rest in the grace of the world , and am free.
By Wendell Berry 

We begin our newsletter with the beautiful poem above " The peace of Wild Things". This represents the struggle and the worries that we all carry but also that the answers and the peace is always there waiting there for us in stillness and nature.

We had a beautiful end to our year here at Earth Yoga and over 65 dedicated yogis and friends showed up for our annual New Years Practice.   It was an honor to teach the practice and the stillness and focus from all of you was so special to witness and be a part of.   Thank you for bringing your heart, energy and focus for our last practice in 2016.

As we embark on 2017 we have a lot of wonderful events to share with you.

Beginning tomorrow (Tuesday 3rd January) with two special 108 Sun Salutations classes with Agnes. The first one will be at 9.30am in our portals studio and another will take place at 18.30 in our Santa Catalina studio.

There are still spots available for David Lurey's introduction to Yoga For Men Workshop on 13 - 15 January. This workshop weekend is open for any men out there who may feel that they would benefit from a yoga practice but have not perhaps had the right introduction to yoga or would feel more comfortable starting from the beginning with a well experienced yoga teacher. For more information please see the flyer below:

Mirjam Wagner will be back at Earth Yoga to teach her Yin and Pranayama practiceon Friday 20th JanuaryAs many of you will know, Mirjam is a well known Yin yoga teacher and also now hosts Yin teacher trainings.  This will be a wonderful opportunity to move through the practice with her and gain wisdom from all of her years and experience of sharing this practice. The theme will be to find liberation and stillness from stuck energy and old emotions. All proceeds will go towards a local charity called Can GazĂ  Project. This is a social project run by Mallorcan ex-priest who lives with 30 homeless people in an old Finca outside Palma and he also feeds up to another 30 people from the street on a daily basis.

Please note that Brent´s regular evening class on Friday 20th January will still go ahead but will be across the street at the Lucky Bodies studio.

We are also happy to introduce Monica who will guide and lead us through a painting workshop on Saturday 21st January (Time : 13.00 - 15.30)  Monika has experience in teaching painting courses, numerology and guiding people through tarot cards . This will not be your regular painting course, you will be more guided to work from your inner self and intuition. With help through meditation and music to access your inner self to paint and draw what may lie hidden within you.  If you are interested in taking part, we are happy to give you more information 
The price for the workshop would be 30 euros and please bring your own crayons and a notebook.

For those of you with children who are interested in Kung Fu there will be a weekly class held here every Tuesday at 5pm. This class will focus on White Crane kung fu and the Chinese language ( Mandarin ) using the lingua-kungfu curriculum of exercise, song and calligraphy. It will be open to children Aged 9 years and upwards. The first class begins on Tuesday 17 January. For more information please contact martin@lingua-kungfu.com

We wish you all a beautiful beginning for the new year that we are about to embark on together.........and our hope for us all is to stay open, be full of courage and heart!  As one of our favorite Spiritual teachers, Marianne Williamson says :" Those who sit must also take a stand."
