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 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€

 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

Sandra and The Earth Yoga Team
