Pranic Energy Healing L2
In this course you will learn how to utilize color prana for quicker, more effective healing results, because colored prana creates a more focused effect on the energy field and the chakras.
Pranic Energy Healing L1
Pranic energy healing is an ancient method of balancing the physical body, the personality, one’s life and environment. This method uses knowledge about the existence of the energy bodies, which surround and infuse the physical body with vital life force. This life force is contained within every aspect of life and may be directed from one person to another person, to an object, to plants, to one’s business or to anyone or anything that requires energetic support, harmonizing or strengthening. These improvements occur through the application of techniques and protocols that utilise chi energy or prana.
Alignment Basics - Standing Poses
Comparable to professional musicians practising their scales time and again, also we Yoga practitioners have to go back to the basics expanding our knowledge on how to align the body correctly in the Asana and understand the elements of the body and how they influence our daily life.

When the days start getting longer again in spring, our hormonal balance changes as well. The discharge of Endorphin, Testosterones and Oestrogens is increased. This strains the body; it reacts with fatigue. Different Yoga Asanas help to better wash toxins and waste products out of the cells. This stimulates the rebuilding of new cells and keeps us young and healthy.
Alignment Basics - Inversions
In this workshop you learn important groundwork for head and shoulder stand. To not miss out on the beautiful effect of these two important poses, we also show you how to practice them therapeutically.
