February 2023


In the heart of winter, advancing on the path of self-knowledge takes on its full meaning with the natural introspection that results. Congratulations on your unwavering motivation.

Weekly classes continue throughout the winter period, including holidays, with no interruption to our determination and enthusiasm.
For the Kirtan on Sunday 5 p.m. participation is free from 10 euros, you can of course use your card if you wish.

We offer you a “Maha Sadhana” Workshop of complete practice to open your heart, body and mind with meditation, pranayama, kirtan and asanas from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday February 18. Not to be missed…
The Ashtanga Workshops directed at Sanskriti (31 Rue du Bourg Dehors, 74950 Scionzier) will take place on February 11 and March 18. These courses are supervised and adjusted with detailed explanations.

You can already register for the Ashtanga Vinyasa training in May and Hatha & Vinyasa training in June, the latter can be split into two times a week for more flexibility or for those who simply wish to deepen their knowledge without wanting to teach.

Regarding the exceptional retreat this summer, the dates will be from August 4 to 8 for Yoga in the mountains with walking, meditation and contemplation in a splendid natural environment in the depths of the Queyras. A unique experience in which we will share a few days in the middle of nature while developing our awareness of the present moment. Claudia and Hamsa will be with you to share happiness. If you are interested, please send us a message by email here.

See you soon on the mat.
Om Namah Shivaya
