Theme: Sthira and Sukha

What does a workshop like?
10:00 am
: We start the day with two hours of asanas. Because of the greater amount of time (twice as a normal lesson) we extended series of postures gain sthira and Skha.

Sthira, can mean “firm, compact, strong, steadfast, static, resolute, and courageous”; etymologically it arises from the root stha, which means “to stand, to be firm, to take a stand.”

The yoga term sukha means “happy, good, joyful, delightful, easy, agreeable, gentle, mild, and virtuous.” The literal meaning is “good space,” from the root words su (good) and kha (space).

12.00 pm: we enjoy a cup of tea and dates or other delicacy.

12:15 pm: The the last three quarters of yoga workshop we dedicate to pranayama (breathing exercises) to prosecute then relax and re-energize the day.
