Pranayama is composed of two words Prana and Ayama (control), translated as control of Prana. Pranayama or control of Prana are techniques that help us to control our subtle energy system, closely linked to our physical nervous system. That’s why the practice of pranayama helps us to relax and reduce anxiety as it directly influences our mind. Due to the holistic impact, that it has on our mental well-being, it also makes us physically more healthy by making the body’s processes more efficient and by improving our immunity.

A pranayama practice involves maintaining specific patterns of inhalation, exhalation, and breath retention. There can be many such patterns or ratios, but a few of them have been mentioned and recommended in ancient yogic texts and those are the ones we will practice in our pranayama course.

Different pranayama techniques offer different benefits, but overall here are the benefits you can expect from a regular pranayama practice
• It helps you to relax by reducing the cortisol production
• It’s beneficial for the heart and helps to reduce the blood pressure, heart rate, etc.
• It can improve our lung capacity and has a positive impact on endurance
• It helps to regulate functions like digestion, metabolism, and even our body temperature.
• It can improve tolerance for intense exercises.
• It helps to improve our quality of life in general and it reduces anxiety – it is a powerful supportive therapy for depression as well as pain management.

Jivamukti Open XL with Conor

FRIDAY 20/10/2023 18:30-20:30 (50€)
SATURDAY 21/10/2023 10:00-12:00 (50€)

Whether you’re a beginner, deciphering the difference between vrksasana (tree) and sirshasana (headstand) or an advanced yogi who can put both feet behind their head, the Jivamukti Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels.

You work at your own pace, following the teacher’s verbal as well as hands-on guidance. Asana options will be provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.
A typical Open class incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga:
shastra (scripture)
bhakti (devotion)
ahimsa (kindness)
nada (music)
dhyana (meditation)

An Open class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. All Open classes include 14 points—asanas, meditation and spiritual teachings—in a sequence creatively designed by the teacher. Exuberant, eclectic music plays an integral role: you might practice to a shifting soundtrack of ragas, global trance, hip-hop, spoken word, George Harrison, Sting, Krishna Das, Donna de Lory, Michael Franti, Bill Laswell, Alice Coltrane and Mozart.

The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner. Even so, beginning level students should know that there will not be much detailed “how to do” descriptions; for that a student is advised to attend a Basic or Beginner Vinyasa Class.

Conor, a Jivamukti Advanced Certified teacher based in Paris, was raised in the United States and served two years in Senegal as a member of the United States Peace Corps. Conor’s love for yoga began at the age of 18 and it has been the great joy and guide. His teachers have instilled in him a deep belief in the transformative power of asana, meditation, pranayama and deep wisdom, as well as the expansion of compassion and insight through embodied experience.

Conor recently completed his Master’s studies in neuroscience at Humboldt Universität, Berlin. He aims to synthesize contemporary science and ancient spirituality by integrating them into the light of mindful practice. Conor continues his humanitarian work in Senegal and other developing countries with his non-profit organization Jango Project. He has had the good fortune to study with many Jivamukti teachers namely Sharon Gannon, David Life, Yogeswari, Lady Ruth and his mentor Anja Kühnel. He has mentored the Jivamukti 300-hour teacher training in India and the 75-hour Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior teacher training at Jivamukti Paris with Ian Szydlowski-Alvarez.

Is an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Teacher from Luxembourg.
Her yoga journey started during her pregnancy, in 2007. She was amazed at how tyoga was giving her the ability to grow into a more compassionate, strong and balanced human being. It seemed natural that the next step would be to share her passion with others, so with this in mind I enrolled in a 100H Anusara Immersion course in Bruxelles, under the guidance of Jayendra Hanley. In 2014 she stepped out of the world of business to become a Jivamukti Yoga Teacher. She completed her 300 hour Jivamukti Teacher Training in India in early 2015. In September 2016 she co-founded Yoga Palais. In March 2019 she co-founded Jivamukti Yoga Luxembourg, the first official Jivamukti center in Luxembourg. She became an advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher in 2019.

SALENTO is that portion of Italian land where the West meets the East, point of
fusion among ancient civilizations of the Medi- terranean; an earth to be discovered, kissed by the sun and by a crystalline sea. Salento is a coffer rich of inestimable treasures: medieval white stone villages built perpendicularly to the sea, innumerable evidences of ancient civiliza- tion, country churches, Romanesque Cathe- drals, monumental Basilicas, »federician« castles, archaeological areas (dolmen, menhir), uncontaminated oases, millenary olive groves, park and sea reserves, splendid carsic caves, suggestive and unique »Trulli« houses, the Baroque art, sacred and pagan rites, local fairs, feasts, perfumes and tastes and the deli- ciousness of an authentic and genuine kitchen.
»Yoga in Salento«, our location, is immersed in the magical beauty and nature of Salento where the sun is strong, the coastline is wild, the sea is crystal clear and the traditional local Pizzica music & dance are contagious.

Agricola Samadhi is a last generation organic farmhouse located in southern Puglia in the heart of Salento in the Grecia Salentina countryside right in the heart of Zollino, just a few steps from the quaint country train station.
Immersed in the fascinating and authentic atmosphere of Puglia, the Agricola Samadhi farmhouse enjoys a strategic location to dis- cover Salento, just 10 minutes from Lecce and 20 minutes from the most beautiful beaches on the Ionic and Adriatic Seas.
The rooms are located on the large estate, divided into three apartments and the main building with a portico that was completed in July 2011 that overlook the antique villa.
Agricola Samadhi is mixing tradition and innovation both with its offerings and form: two elegant antique buildings from the early 20th century are near recently renovated buildings, surrounded by a green park, immersed in the sound of the wind between the magnificent fronds of the palms and the song of the birds and the hum of the cicadas.
Decide whether to relax along the edge of our large, fresh pool, enjoy an Ayurvedic treatment, a Thai or Shiatzu massage, enjoy the wind caressing the fronds of the palms as you relax in a hammock, walk the 10 hectares of the property or go discover Salento: there’s time for nature walks, artistic excursions, trekking, bicycle tours, horseback riding and sails!
