  • Ashtanga Yoga Intermediate Series & Pranayama Workshop in PARIS / March 21 2015 

This workshop is fully booked, please contact Lise ( for waiting list!


NADI SHODANA – The Pranayama and The Intermediate Series

9h00-10h15: Nadi Shodana Pranayama – principles, practice and philosophy

Nadi Shodana means Purification of the Nadis and is considered to be a Kriya, a purification technique that balances and prepares the physical- and energetic pathways for yogic practices. It is a complete practice in its own right that lies at the very heart of Hatha Yoga. Kia will gently guide us through some of the classical Kriyas and preparatory practices, creating an understanding for the technique and philosophy behind Nadi Shodana and the significance of breath in yogic practices.

10h30-13h00 Nadi Shodana –  the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga

This transformational sequence is known to balance the energy, gradually giving access to the central channel, Sushumna Nadi. It combines deep back-bending, twisting, hip-opening and balancing postures and is designed to awaken and strengthen our entire body and nervous system. We will approach these challenging postures with intelligence, playfulness and awareness of both physical and energetic alignment principles – enabling you to inform and inspire your practice regardless of your current level. 

Please note: You do NOT need to be an Intermediate Series practitioner to attend. The workshop is open for all interested practitioners, except complete beginners to Ashtanga Yoga.

A light snack will be offered between classes…

  • Ashtanga Yoga & Pranayama Sadhana – Deepening Course SIERRA NEVADA, Spain

First Session (10 days): July 11-21 2015 / Second Session (7 days): July 23-30 2015

First session is full and has a waiting list so we have opened a second session July 23-30! Please contact Kia ( for more info!


For the third year, we gather in the magnificent mountains of the Sierra Nevada to deepen our practice and understanding of yoga as a whole. We open our mornings with Ashtanga Yoga – a combination of Mysore Style classes, where you receive individual guidance and adjustments from Kia, and some led classes focused on specific aspects of Ashtanga Yoga, its principles & adjustments. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to the philosophy and practice of Pranayama, the ancient yogic breathing techniques. 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 day trips to Granada and Almeria beach, vegetarian cookery with local chefs, hiking and, of course, hanging by the pool or enjoying massages from Maura Mulvaney & Cecilia Runesson… On the second session it will also be possible to book one-on-one healing sessions with Myriam Quinones Pescador.

Run by the lovely British 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 lovely, with plenty of antiques, books, nooks and crannies. Many rooms have fabulous views across the hills to the distant sea. The food is delicious – organic, vegetarian, locally grown. 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.
The course is open to all levels of practitioners familiar with Mysore Style self-practice.

Please contact Kia for any inquiries.
