"When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge" - Amy Enkling How can we break free from patterns that do not serve us or prevent us from going beyond? According to yogic philosophy each person is born with an inherited set of emotional and mental patterns. These are individual impressions, thoughts, feelings and actions, and we develop and repeat them over and over again throughout life. Samskaras, that is how they are known in Sanskrit, can be good or bad patterns and they make up our conditioning in life. The bright side is we all have in us the capacity to ignite the process of liberation. Making use of adequate tools, freedom from unwanted patterns require continuous work and practice. Inspired by liberation and the sea view in beautiful House of Zen's rooftop, this is a class inviting us all for an intense practice of Ashtanga Yoga, to embrace strength, flexibility and balance. This guided class is led by our yoga house teacher Simona Fantinel. Focused in the primary series of Ashtanga, both beginners and more advanced yogis are welcome. Let's use the breath (Pranayama), the eye sight focus (Drishti), the self intention (Sankalpa) and most importantly the sense of self-respect. Together, and with these, we will start breaking free some patterns in the yoga practice - such as fear, excessive competitiveness, and lack of self-confidence. With a loving approach we will review and avoid a certain myth of injuries and repetitiveness related to Ashtanga. Feel inspired by liberation! After the yoga practice we invite you for a beautiful and healthy brunch! Colourful and freshly prepared salads, veggies, creative cereal bowls with fresh and dried fruits, and a beautiful cake, all served with a delicious green tea & mint smoothy, free flow of tea and coffee. All prepared and platted with care and love, as we always do at House of Zen!
