Abhaya Yoga with Vivi Letsou (Athens)


Abhaya Yoga is a method combining dynamic Hatha Yoga movement, Zen and Tantra Meditation, and a practical Life Stance, created by Vivi Letsou, and inspired by the mudra that signifies Abhaya--NO FEAR

PROGRAM & SCHEDULE

Friday 17h-19h - Vinyasa Krama Now : Asana, Bhanda & Pranayama Practice

Based on traditional vinyasa sequences, while focusing deeply on the esoteric workings of energy,  (Bandha & Pranayama with deep awareness) we connect with the fountain of energy/PRANA in us.  This is the magic key that unlocks our INFINITE energy potential and leads to INFINITE VINYASA possibilities. 

Saturday 10-12h30 - Modified Ashtanga : Vinyasa Structured Practice becomes Personal

Practicing the classical First Series Ashtanga Vinyasa, with a softer tone, and a deeper sense of Bandhas and Pranayama, we focus not so much on the structure and the way asana practice should look like, but on the felt experience of what our body in the present moment. Thus we connect with our inner flow of prana/consciousness.  Listening, being aligned with what goes on inside, our practice becomes a personal, fresh, alive experience.  Healing and transformation happen just then. 

Sunday 10-12h30 - Infinite Vinyasa : Simple Dynamic Asana & Focused Pranayama

Abhaya refers to the fearlessness that comes from connecting directly with the truth of our heart.  In this Vinyasa class we will listen to verses from the classic Text, the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, and practice specific breath meditations.  Connecting with the ever present flow of breath/prana in us, we will move from that place. The possibilities are INFINITE, but our expression in the present moment is ONE.  Move with certainty and learn how to be authentic—true to your body’ s expression NOW. 

Price : 110€ all 3 sessions, or 40€ each
