SALENTO
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.

LOCATION: YOGA IN SALENTO – AGRICOLA SAMADHI
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!

Jivamukti Open XL with Carol Issa
Saturday 29/06/2024: 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.

Yoga in the Forest with Magali & Sophie: Asana, Pranayama & Meditation
Sunday 21st July: 15:00-16:30 (25 €)

Yoga in the Forest with Magali & Sophie: Asana, Pranayama & Meditation

Reconnect with nature through an immersive yoga experience in the forest. This unique class combines the physical postures of asana, the breath control of pranayama, and the tranquility of meditation to help you achieve a peaceful state of mind. Surrounded by the sights, sounds, and scents of the natural world, you’ll feel a sense of freedom and rejuvenation as you strengthen your body and calm your mind.

Class Highlights:
• Nature Connection: The serene forest environment helps you reconnect with nature, reducing stress and promoting a sense of well-being. The Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, or ‘forest bathing,’ has been shown to lower stress hormones, and combining this with yoga enhances these benefits.
• Grounding Experience: Fresh air, the sounds of birds and insects, and the feel of the earth beneath your feet bring you into the present moment. This grounding experience not only clears your mind but also fosters a deeper commitment to environmental preservation.
• Holistic Wellness: Stepping away from screens, moving your body, and soaking up natural sunlight are powerful ways to reduce anxiety and improve your overall perspective. Practicing yoga outdoors ticks all these boxes, offering a holistic approach to wellness.
Location: Bambesch Parking Laftreff
What to Bring:
• Yoga mat
• Comfortable, layered clothing (extra layers can provide additional cushioning and support)

We will begin our practice as soon as we enter the natural space by walking mindfully and focusing on our breath. We will allow the sounds around us to help separate our mind from daily concerns, and practice releasing thoughts as they arise.

Join us for a transformative yoga session in the forest, where you can let go of your anxieties, uplift your spirit, and reconnect with the environment in a meaningful way.

Enrollments via our website, Mindbody App
or info@jivamuktiyogaluxembourg.com

In case the weather is not good, we will teach the class at the studio or you can have a credit for another class.
