End of the Year Update

Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs
A 12-week study course designed to give those with chronic and recurring lower back issues the tools to manage lower back pain. The course is based on a large research trial conducted the the University of York and funded by Arthritis Research UK. Its protocols have shown that this program is more effective than the 'usual care' hospitals provide to these patients in the UK.

The course meets once weekly and practice at home is an integral part of the program. This helps to ensure that by the end of the course students have the tools to keep their backs healthy for years to come. A yoga mat at home will be needed. Course book, relaxation CD and course handouts are included in the course fee. This will be my first offering of this course. Pre-registration is required by January 3rd.

Sunday early evenings from January 10 - April 17 (18h-19h30)

Course fee 380€ (including course materials)

Purna Mantra, again...

Cela est infini. Ceci est infini
De l'infini est apparu l'infini.
En prenant l'infini de l'infini, il demeure comme le seul infini.
Il demeure le même, même si l'infini est apparu à parti de lui.

That is whole. This is whole.
From the whole, the whole becomes manifest.
From the whole, if the whole is negated,
what remains is again the whole.

Purnamadah Purnamidam
Purnat Purnamudachyate
Purnasya Purnamadaya
Om shanti, shanti, shanti

Silence gives a little space for the expansion of the heart, when it might otherwise contract too strong, too hard. / Ann Moradian
