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

- Acupressure with clothes / ear Acupressure

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

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
