Immensely proud and excited to share the 4th edition of LE YOGA SHOP JOURNAL with you, fresh from the printer´s!

NEWS_LEJOURNAL_HOMEPAGE
Purity, the theme of this issue of Le Journal is often associated with stern discipline, chastity innocence – on the other hand with the existence of impurity, shame and guilt. We need to purify, detox and clean up our act! Yoga mainly discusses purity as being free from scattered thought patterns -creating clarity and steadiness of mind. Living in this digital era with everyone´s and anyone´s latest happenings and doings at our fingertips at all hours, makes it increasingly challenging to keep steadiness of mind…
These thoughts are reflected in the content featuring a conversation with Danny Paradise about purity, independence and personal responsibility. Greg Nardi reflects on the role of religion in the yoga tradition. Belen Vazquez Amaro and Albin Holmqvist have interpreted the elements of the ancient science of Auyrveda in a unique and visual story. Tina Magnergård Bjers is advocating the need for a Digital Detox in her family…
100% of sales is donated to Operation Shant -read about our cause here!
Le Yoga Shop Journal is available at the Shala, or you can order your own copy here!

Ashtanga Yoga & Pranayama with KIA NADDERMIER in SIERRA NEVADA / July 5-12 and 12-19, 2014

NEWS_SPAIN_MYP

Away from big city life, in the magnificent mountains of the Sierra Nevada we can deepen our practice and understanding of yoga as a whole, and re-discover the natural integration of Body, Breath and Mind.

Mornings begin Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style, where you receive individual guidance and adjustments from Kia. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to the philosophy and practice of Pranayama, the ancient yogic breathing techniques. Kia will offer her experience and guidance as we allow space for a daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga, Pranayama and Kriyas (yogic purification techniques) as well as Sitting and Mantra-recitation. Integrating all aspects will take your practice to the next level of awareness, allowing its subtleties to unfold and blossom. Alongside the yoga practice there will be other optional activities including vegetarian cookery with our local chefs, visiting the olive mill, hiking and, of course, hanging by the pool or enjoying a massage from Agathe Philbé & Maura Mulvaney

Run by the lovely Brittish couple David & Emma Illsey, Las Chimeneas is a truly authentic and unique pearl, located in one of the most beautiful and energetically powerful spots in all of Europe. The accommodation is very comfortable, with plenty of antiques, books, nooks and crannies. Most rooms have fabulous views across the hills to the distant sea. The food is delicious – organic, vegetarian, locally grown – and is enjoyed in our delightful dining room. Yoga classes are held in the outdoor shala which nestles in olive groves, overlooking the mountains. This is a magical place to retreat, re-charge and give yourself space to deepen your practice.

5th – 12th of July: Deepening Course, the practice and philosophy of Ashtanga Yoga and Pranayama. Mysore morning sessions including some counted classes, focused on specific aspects of Ashtanga Yoga and its philosophy. Afternoon Pranayama sessions daily, except for one mid-week afternoon left open for exploration, activities or rest!

12th – 19th of July: Self Practice Intensive with Pranayama. This intensive is focused on each individual´s self-practice and needs. Pranayama every other afternoon: Introduction and working up to a self practice for new students, refining and cultivating your practice for those staying on. The free afternoons will offer time to explore the area with an optional visit to Alhambra, Granada…
