SEPTEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends,

"Wilderness is of course difficult but if we have braved it on our own, we will be painfully aware of our choices moving forward. We can spend our entire lives betraying ourselves and choosing fitting in over standing alone. But once we have stood up for ourselves and our beliefs, the bar is higher. A wild heart fights fitting in and grieves betrayal."
From" Braving the Wilderness "by Brene Brown


Welcome to September and the beauty of fall. The wilderness mentioned above by Brene Brown is the path of finding our own voice, our own ethics and how to brave standing up for our core values and beliefs- even if it means standing on our own. It is a longing in all of us to feel like we truly belong, but we must never sacrifice ourselves to belong - a true belonging invites you to be who you are, while fitting in demands you to change who you are in order to be accepted .

Through Earth Yoga and our practice we hope to inspire you to find out who you truly are and also have the sense of true belonging as you enter the shala. We help to encourage ourselves to look a little deeper, speak up a little louder over injustice, and no longer accepting sacrificing yourself to fit in .

We have a great Autumn coming up with many wonderful guest teachers and Events taking place:

We are looking forward to welcoming Jeanne Heileman back to Earth Yoga. She will be offering her deeply inspirational Tantra Flow Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training.   It will take place from 17 - 30 September / 22 October - 4 November 2018.

The training is for those who want to deepen their practice and get more grounded in the physical postures of the practice and it also gives you a wonderful introduction and deepening of The Yoga Sutras, Ayurveda, and the history of Yoga.
 As well as students wanting to deepen their practice, it is also for those looking to embark on the path as a yoga teacher and guiding people on their own.  We still have a few spaces available so let us know if you are interested in joining us on this journey which is life changing in so many aspects.

Jeanne will be teaching a public class at 10am on Friday 14th September(bonocards welcome) and directly after the class she will host another information session for those of you who would like to know more about what the training has to offer.


 
We are happy to announce a special class with LA based teacher Joan Hyman on Friday 7th September at 10am - 12pm.   Joan is here from America on a brief visit and we are happy to share her teachings for this special class.  Bono cards and regular price accepted.

This summer we lost a dear and beautiful soul and teacher. 

Our dear friend and beloved Yin Yoga teacher Emily Larkin passed away after a painful and quick battle with breast cancer.  Emily chose to face her illness  surrounded by her dear parents and only a few close friends.  We know that she felt everyones love and care all around her and although she could not respond to all the messages and love she received, she felt it.   She left us far too soon and the mystery of life and death is something we have to accept even if we do not understand it or like it. We remember her as a woman and teacher with a wonderful zest for life, always a glimmer in her eyes and the deep connection students felt from her calm essence as she guided them through yin practice and her healing treatments. We will host a donation practice in October in honor of her Life and donate to a cause that she deeply cared about - the health of our oceans.



We have been very blessed with Stefanie and Annie who have taken over her Yin Yoga classes on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.    One of Emily's teachers and closest friend was Mirjam Wagner and in honoring Emily we are very happy to welcome Mirjam back to guest teach a few of our Tuesday evening Yin Practices this September. As many of you know Mirjam is a gifted Yin Yoga teacher and now travels most of Europe teaching trainings in Yin Yoga and the path of stillness. She will teach on the following Tuesday evenings : 4th, 11th and 25th September.



We also want to thank and honor our dear teacher and friend Julia Thamsen who has taught and shared her love of yoga for over two years in our studio in Portals.   Her enthusiasm, love and care for our students has been such a gift and we are so grateful for all the hours of teachings and preparing she has given us!   Julia's teaching will continue but now from the studio at her and her husband's golf course where she generously donates all her income through practices to charity.   Julia will always be a part of our Earth Yoga Family and we are so grateful for her .

JUNE 2018 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends,

"Great things are done when Man and Mountains meet "
William Blake 


It can often feel like doing the right thing is the more difficult path to take . That speaking up when our voice trembles and allowing ourselves to really feel with our whole hearts - empathy , compassion , sorrow , hurt and pain of others can sometimes feel too much.   But despite our resistance and our reluctance , I believe that resistance can sometimes be our biggest teacher.   The practice of Yoga challenges us on many levels - our mind, our bodies and our discipline..but if we go through it all and stay with the practice - it offers us many rewards and can be our eye in the storm when everything else might be shaking .   This is the beauty of the practice and the grace of using the tools that we have been given .

We were deeply touched by our community as everyone came together with great generosity to our donation practices last week in both in Santa Catalina and Portals. Together we raised a wonderful amount of money to support a friend in our community that needs our financial and emotional support. Thank You to all of you who so generously donated and to Mirjam and Katja for co teaching with Sandra to share the practice of giving.
We received a wonderful donation from a dear friend and yogi who donated a very generous amount beyond what we ever thought...so THANK YOU to each and every one of you.

We have a wonderful addition to our Earth Yoga family with the special news that Agnes gave birth to a healthy and beautiful boy on the 28th May. We are so happy for her and her partner Alfonso!   Agnes is taking some very much needed time off to dedicate herself to baby and we look forward to when she returns in her own time .

As we move into the summer months we have made some new changes to the schedule and we are really pleased to introduce our new Yoga Power Hour with Frank at Earth Yoga on Wednesdays from 17.45-18.45 in the small shala. 



And we have a weekly Conscious breath work and Healing Meditation with Jeanne every Friday at 10am.



We love our new teachers that have taken on weekly classes here at Earth Yoga,  Silje teaches a Jivamukti inspired class on Saturday mornings, Danae teaches a wonderful Vinyasa flow class on Tuesday Evenings and Annie teaches a great dynamic Vinyasa Flow class on Thursday evenings. If you have not taken or experienced any of their classes yet, please come and try.



Also we have have decided to move our Saturday and Sunday Morning Practice to 10am instead of 10.30am. This is to give our yogis more time to enjoy the day and we feel it is still a nice time to sleep a little longer AND make it to practice at 10am! The time change will begin from Sunday 1 July.

 


This month we have some great events taking place.....

We begin with our monthly Colloidal Gold & Tibetan Sound Healing class with Sarah Livesey, Jack Pescod and Sandra Donovan. It takes place on Saturday 16th June at 4pm. There is no need to pre register just come along 15 mins before the healing begins.

 


We are so proud to offer the sacred teachings of Nico Luce. He will be offering two workshops on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 June.  He is a truly special teacher and is a good friend of Earth Yoga and Brent McKay. We are so happy that he is coming back and we can not recommend him strongly enough .   He has a way of weaving philosophy, his love for yoga and the sequences in a very special way . Do not miss this opportunity...


 



Dolores Mihanovich from the Inner Alchemy School will be presenting a workshop on the Male ancestors and its relevance in the Family Tree.

"When we open our hearts to the qualities of a specific grandparent it brings changes to our vibration, to our family, society and the natural world. It increases the light and love in the family tree. These changes are subtle, but very real and can be very powerful.  When we acknowledge a grandparent with sincere gratitude, it brings freedom to the individual and society – freedom from the continuous cycle of suffering.  Discover the possibilities your Grandfathers and  Great Grandfathers offer to you and start healing your family tree."

Date : Saturday 30 June /  4.30pm - 7.30pm
Price : 35€
Information and  registration: 
doloresmihanovich@ono.com



 


 We are also approaching the cut off date for our Early Bird price for our training with Jeanne Heileman.   We are so happy to receive the teachings of Jeanne and to offer this 200 Hour Tantra Flow Yoga Teacher Training again. This will be a wonderful opportunity to not only dive deeper into the practice but to learn the sacred tools of yoga ...chakras , deeper understanding of fundamental and more challenging asanas, Ayurveda , meditation and pranayama. Feel free to contact us for more information or support .



We look forward to sharing our summer with you and the great tools of yoga.

With Love

MAY 2018 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends,

" There is a legacy deep within us , a legacy of instinct , a legacy of deep inherited feelings , which may lie very deep in the tissues- it may lie deep under all the parts of civilization which we are familiar with on a daily basis , but it has not gone -  we may have left the natural world , but the natural world has not left us."  By Michael Mc Cain - naturalist 

I fell in love with this quote when I heard it as it resonates so deep in so many of us .....and with spring blossoming all around us, birds are sharing their beautiful song ......if we just step outside, into the wild ...and listen. I think no matter where we come from or what life we live, most of us are moved by the spring and re birth.   Our lives are mostly moving in a linear way and the promise of re birth after all that has been frozen connects us to that life is indeed moving in a cycle .

Spring is an opportunity to take stock, to re value and clean inside and out.   Where are we heading? Are we spending enough time doing what deeply connects us to our hearts?  Are we using our energy wisely caring for ourselves, those loved ones around us and also our planet ?  We are honored to walk together on this path of self reflection, nurturing not only ourselves but all around us - let us continue to inspire and evolve together .

This month we are creating a few changes to our schedule and are welcoming some new teachers to Earth Yoga:

After almost 8 years of guiding and nurturing our community every Saturday Morning our dear Katja has decided to spend more time with family, animals and self on Saturday mornings. We are so grateful for all the hours, all the talks, the tears, the smiles and love that Katja has shared with all of our Santa Catalina community. As many of you know our Saturday classes with Katja rarely ended on time :) as she was always giving that little bit extra and more heart. We are sad to see her go but please know that Katja has not left Earth Yoga !   She is still teaching and managing our space in Portals and we will bring her to you in Santa Catalina for subbing as much as we can. In fact she will be teaching Sandra´s regular class this coming Friday 11 May at 10am.



We are very excited to introduce Silje who will be taking over our Saturday 10 am classes. Silje is a wonderful teacher from Norway with many years of experience teaching both Jivamukti Yoga and Flow Yoga. Our 10.30 practice with Silje on Saturdays will now be a Jivamukti class - filled with a dynamic flow practice, chanting and theme of the month.



Please know that Emily will still be teaching her Yin Yoga practice in the Small Shala every Saturday at 10.30.

We are also introducing a change on Thursday evenings ...Frank has served our community with his safe alignment and breath inspired practice. He has inspired many yogis with his warm heart and enthusiasm for the practice of yoga.  However, he will no longer be teaching the Thursday evening slot at 19.00 but we will instead teach the Earth Yoga Power Hour with Frankevery Wednesday at 17.45- 18.45 .  This will take place in the small shala and will be for those of you who really want to strengthen and build heat through a shorter and more dynamic practice. The first Power Hour Class will take place on Wednesday 16th May.



We are really happy to introduce Annie as our teacher for the regular Vinyasa Flow practice on Thursdays at 19.00. She will guide a dynamic vinyasa practice with deep focus on breath and the promise of longer stretches towards the end of the practice .



We will pause our Candle Light Healing Yoga Practice for the spring / summer and look forward to sharing this practice again with you when fall and winter arrives. Stephanie will still teach her 10am Wednesday morning practice which is a wonderful blend of Yang and Yin practice .

 


As well as the changes to our regular schedule we also have some exciting events taking place over the next couple of months.....

We begin with a chance to experience the magic of Wim Hof breathing techniques with Luke Wills at Earth Yoga. This 2 hour workshop will begin at 20.15 straight after Sandra's Vinyasa Class this evening (Wednesday 9 May). If you have any questions or would like to book please email info@optimalhealthmethod.com or call Tracy on 636 169 628




This coming Saturday 12 May we welcome Anabel Miranda back to Earth Yoga. She will be hosting an Arm Balance and Hip Opening Workshop. Please get in touch if you would like to reserve a space : info@earthyoga.es



Nico Luce  is one of the most inspiring teachers that have shared their knowledge at Earth Yoga . We are so lucky to have him back with us in June . He blends the philosophy of yoga, movement and deep ancient teachings in such a wonderful way . Once again please contact us for more info or to reserve your spot.



And finally, Jeanne Heileman will be back at Earth Yoga and hosting her 200hr Tantra Flow Teacher Training  between 17 - 30 September and 22 October - 3 November 2018. Registration is now open and there is an early bird price of 2900€ if paid before 18 June 2018. If you are wanting to take your practice to the next stage or are interested in becoming a yoga teacher then this could be training for you. Please speak to Sandra, Jay or Katja to find out more about Jeanne and her teachings.




We look forward to seeing you at Earth Yoga very soon.

APRIL 2018 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends ,

"Remember, if you love life, nothing is worth closing over. Nothing ever is worth closing your heart over." 
From "The Untethered Soul" by Michael A Singer 


With this very simple and yet profound quote we are reminded again and again, that there is a path where we can choose and where there is always that golden moment of how we choose to react when we are met with challenges in life.
This is easier said than done ...but just as the story of the Good Wolf and the Bad Wolf where the one that wins is the one that you feed ...this applies to our hearts as well .

After a long winter even here on Mallorca with heavy rains that have now blessed our lands and nature with green lush vegetation, spring is finally here .   We are inspired to spring clean - inside and out.   There is a beauty of really clearing out closets, drawers and wash floors and surfaces in your living space . Open all the windows and use sage to clean and clear energy and invite the good in by burning palo santo. Create an altar, light a candle and bring some fresh flowers into your home.   Our bodies are longing for cleaner food and liquids and our practices become more heating and detoxing as the heat from the outside warms our bodies faster .

We are proud to have completed our second group of graduates from the last part of our advanced 300hr Tantra Flow Teacher Training with Jeanne Heilemann.  It is an honor to follow her and the students through their challenges, joys and the love and returning home through yoga. Jeanne will be returning to Earth Yoga in September where she will be hosting a 200hr Tantra Flow Teacher Training. If you are interested in advancing your yoga practice or are wanting to become a yoga teacher then this could be the training for you. For more information please visit www.jeanneheileman.com or speak to Sandra, Katja and Jay for more details.



 



This April we are excited to offer our second Healing Meditation and Tibetan Sound Bowls with Jack Pescod and Sarah Livesay.   On Saturday 14 April they will guide us with their magic blend of colloidal gold, intention setting and the healing sounds of tibetan bowls. Last time was a truly amazing gathering and we had over 25 people who left with a sense of deep healing and lightness in our bodies and spirit.  To sign up for this event please email info@earthyoga.es or pass by reception. It will take place from 4pm until 6pm and costs 25€



We are also happy to introduce a new healing meditation practice with Jeanne Lurie. This will take place every Friday at 10am until 11.30am in the small shala (at the same time as our vinyasa class in the main shala). Jeanne will guide you through a deep healing meditation not only for ourselves but for the healing of the world.



We have a few changes to our regular schedule at both of our studios.....

In Santa Catalina, Rebecca has decided to stop teaching her Monday evenings classes and so Brent will be taking over teaching the 6.30pm Monday class instead. This will begin on Monday 23 April. Also Frank's 7pm Thursday evening class will now be a level 2/3 class instead of All Levels. He will continue to teach an all level practice every Sunday at 6.30pm

In our Portals studio, Katja will go back to teaching a vinyasa flow yoga class on Wednesdays at 9.30am. This class is followed by Yin Yoga with Emily at 11.30am.  Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic (yang) style of Vinyasa Yoga and leaves you with a calm mind and body. We highly recommend trying a class!


 


We hope to see you at Earth Yoga very soon!

Love

Sandra and The Earth Yoga Team

FEBRUARY 2018 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends,

" If you bring forth what is deep within you - it will save you "  From the book The Great work of your Life by Stephen Cope 

You are only one step away from a chance to live a fulfilled life . To live a fulfilled life is being yourself - whoever that is . You love what you know deeply.    One of my favorite books is called  " The Great Work of Your Life " by Stephen Cope .   It is a book that so stunningly weaves the path of leading and finding a truly fulfilled life, discovering your dharma and also parallels the story of The Bhagavadvita.

How do we find our true calling , our dharma ?

How do we truly connect back home to self?

These are thoughts and questions that I think most of us have struggled with or come across throughout our lifetime.

The Path of Yoga is one way of finding your way home .   The breath, the movement and the stillness all calls for Jivanmuukti, liberation.
There are of course so many ways to find our way home, to ignite that which dwells deep within us, and it is worth to search for what your path is - to lead you home .

We have already entered the second month of this year and about now many of us are slipping back into old habits and patterns, some wonderful and some destructive.   It is never too late to begin again, to light the flame and re connect to those deep longings that we embarked the new year with.

January was a wonderful month here at EarthYoga and we were incredibly moved and grateful to be able to offer Yin Yoga with Mirjam Wagner and Luis Paniguia and also hold a solo concert with Luis Paniguia .   For those of you that came ...thank you.  We hope to welcome him back again soon as for many of us his music touched our hearts in a very profound way.

We also hosted our last mediation at The Joan Miro´Foundation, " The Art of Stillness".    All the money donated from this will go towards the children´s organization Fundacio´Nazaret. We were grateful for this collaboration and for all of you that came and donated your stillness , prayers and money.




This month we are happy to introduce to Earth Yoga two new classes and private sessions.

On Wednesdays (2pm - 3.30pm) we are offering Restorative Yoga with Sarah.   This practice is fully supported by bolsters , blocks and blankets and for you to just restore and re connect.



On Thursdays (7pm - 8.15pm) we are introducing Candlelight Healing Yoga with Linda in the small shala .   This will be a practice open to all and in the soft glow of candle light this gentle yoga practice invites you to conscious relaxation. Guided by the breath and our own powerful intention we will dissolve deep tension and welcome a deep sense of wellbeing . A balance between movement and stillness, strength and surrender , followed by a healing meditation. This new class begins on Thursday 1st February.

Linda will also be offering  "Transform and Heal " private sessions here at Earth Yoga.  Linda has path as a kundalini teacher, studies in chinese medicine and acupressure and nutrition therapy.   Her treatments will include healing and balancing treatments.   Learn how to correct your imbalances and support your own healing process.
- One to One conversations
- Breath techniques for improving energy levels
- Nutritional advice
- Healing
- Chinese face reading
- Acupressure with clothes / ear Acupressure
- Guided deep mediations

Please contact us at the front desk for more information or to book treatments.





We are happy to welcome Jeanne Heileman back to Earth Yoga. She will be teaching part 3 of her 300hr Tantra Flow Teacher Training from Monday 26 February until Friday 9 March .   We are so proud to have this training with Jeanne which takes you deeper into the path of meditation, the 5 Layers of the body called Koshas. This last part will go deeper into the 4 th and 5 th sheath called the Vijnamaya kosha and Anandamaya Kosha .   These are the deeper layers of wisdom and discernment and spiritual bliss body.

Every day will begin with a 2 hour asana practice with hands on adjustments and personal attention from Jeanne followed by lectures, meditation practice, hands on adjustments workshops, practice teachings and a lot of laughter and humor.   We have just a few spaces available. Please contact either Sandra, Katja or Jay for more information regarding this amazing training.  You can also contact Jeanne directly at jeanne@jeanneheilemann.com



As well as the Teacher Training we are excited to offer a Master Class with Jeanne on Saturday 24 February (2pm - 5pm) It will move deep into the core of our being, the core of the physical body a heat building tapas practice with the end of the practice leading us deeper into meditation and mantra.    It is rare to have Jeanne offering a one off Master Class and for those of you who want to explore and go deeper in the yoga practice, this will take you deeper both in the physical body and the layers of stillness. To reserve your spot please email or pass by reception.



David Lurey and Mirjam Wagner will also be hosting their own 150hr teacher training which will take place at Earth Yoga from 3rd - 16th February. This will not affect any of our morning or evening scheduled classes, but our 2pm classes will be moved to the Lucky Bodies studio, right across the street.

and finally.......we want to remind you of the Crystal Bed we have upstairs in our "office" which is here on loan from our dear friend Simon. 

What is a Crystal Bed?   A crystal bed has 7 extremely clear and highly polished quartz  crystals suspended approx 12 inches above the client lying on a massage table . Each of the crystals has been cut to a specific frequency and each is aligned above one of our 7 chakras or energy centers. Colored lights radiate light and energy  through each crystal to cleanse , balance and align your energies. The client receiving this rests face up, eyes closed and bathing in the energy.   The sessions are very healing and integrating.   The sessions are also donation based and each session is 25 min, so you can go right after yoga practice or anytime during the day to receive the crystal healing.   We will donate the money towards charity for children , animals, the environment and refugees.    
Receive healing to give.
Min donation : 8 euro per session.
Please contact us at reception to book your session
.




Wishing you the most glorious February and remember to go out and smell the almond blossoms...nature is so beautiful and abundant at this time of the year.

With blessings and well wishes

Sandra and the Earth Yoga Team

A crystal bed has 7 extremely clear and highly polished quartz  crystals suspended approx 12 inches above the client lying on a massage table . Each of the crystals has been cut to a specific frequency and each is aligned above one of our 7 chakras or energy centers .
Colored lights radiate light and energy  through each crystal to cleanse , balance and align your energies. The client receiving this rests face up, eyes closed and bathing in the energy.   The sessions are very healing and integrating.   We will place the crystal bed upstairs in our " office " and there will be absolute privacy there . We will make this donation based and each session is 25 min, so you can go right after yoga practice or anytime during the day to receive the crystal healing.   We will donate the money towards charity for children , animals, the environment and refugees.    Receive healing to give. Min donation will be 8 euro per session. Please contact us at reception to book your session.


On the path of healing, please join Mirjam Wagner for a healing Yin Yogasession on Friday 26 January to receive stillness, moving deep into the fascia and letting go. Mirjam will be accompanied by the sacred music from Luis Paninagua- someone who has deeply touched the heart of both Mirjam and David Lurey .   On Saturday 27th January we are incredibly proud to offer a One Time Concert with Luis Paninagua Time : 7pm - 9pm . Price : 20 euros. Spaces are limited for both of these special events. To register please contact David Lurey - david@findbalance.net



David Lurey and Mirjam Wagner will also be back at Earth Yoga in February when they will be hosting their Level II Teacher Training. For more information please visit www.FindBalance.net / www.YogaTherapyMallorca.com
 


We will be hosting our last "Art of Stillness" in collaboration with Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró Mallorca.   We have really loved sharing the first Saturday morning every month at the Museum in front of his paintings with an open meditation, open for all .   This has been donation based both from the museum and from us at Earth Yoga - at the end of January we will hand over all donations towards Fundacio Nazaret, an organization that works with children that have struggled through loss of parents, abandonment or are simply in foster care .
The date is Saturday 13 January at 9 - 9.45am. Come as you are and drop into stillness .


 

We also want to take this time to remind you of our next training coming up with Jeanne Heileman. It takes place from Monday 26 February until Saturday 10 March. This will conclude her last part of her 300hr Tantra Flow Training.   This last 100 hour module explores the fourth inner layer, where the joyous, wisest part dwells within each of us. Known as Buddhi, this wisdom layer is accessed only then the mind has developed the skill for concentration, allowing the veil of ignorance to be removed.

As teachers of Earth Yoga, many of us have taken this training and we are so proud to offer Jeanne with her tremendous history and knowledge of the yoga path . You will emerge as a teacher or just a student wishing to deepen your practice with a training that has not only given you tools for how to enrich your teachings and practice but also with tools for life.   The Early Bird Price ends on Monday 15 January, please contact us for more details either at the reception or talk in person with Katja, Sandra or Jay.



Let us grow stronger in 2018 together, let us face both our shadows and our incredible Light .   Together we need our practice to be our guide, our place of healing so that we can go out into the world and act in it with courage and love .   We need more than ever not to shy away from the world and all its grace and grit- but to actively immerse ourselves into it and manifest the world we long for .

With Love

Sandra and The Earth Yoga Team
