A Yoga lessons takes place for 1.30

At the beginning of the lessons, you can simply stop and bring your attention toward yourself. You can observe your body, so that you will respect his needs during your practice. This opening is very important. Just think about someone driving and choosing to stop. When he will do so, his car will not be able to stop immediately at the right place he will be because of it s speed. This is exactly what happens with your mind and your body… they need some time and space.

Afterwards, we do some warm-up. It is an invitation that we send to our organism.
And then it is time for the “Sun Salutation” which couples warm-up and meditation. Focus is on your breath, on the flow of your breath and movements are done without strength. The dance begins!


Now we can do some postures called Asana. Here we aim to go a little farther from what we are used too. It is a moment of exploration, we discover/rediscover our limits, we open them a bit, we learn to simply enjoy and feel. You will feel the energy flowing although the Asana are static postures. It is not the body which is moving anymore, but something inside, because you are in the center leaving the flow free. You will gain new sensations, new feelings which will follow you out of the mat in your daily life. Feeling that you will be able to recall whenever you will need them, like Tadasana-the mountain pose, Virabhadrasana-the warrior, bujhangasana-the cobra… Magic of Asana!!!

A part of the lesson is dedicated to the inverted pose. Imagine… that you are able to observe the world feeling balance and peace all together. Now nothing can stop you anymore. It is a chance to build, increase your self-confidence and discover your ability to approach life differently.

And we close the session with Savasana. Here we close the circle, the beginning and the end. Once more, you observe, discovering the changes in your body, mind and being. We take responsibility for what we have done, we understand the law of action=effect, that what we do in the present affect our future. We also learn to just see what is, without judgment.  We understand how important it is to be in the Here and Now.
You will also discover that your breath is calmer and stronger, because you left her space during your practice, you followed her instead to ask her to follow you. This made you to gain tranquility. Each of your cells gained place and pleasure and you can enjoy the result in the silent place of Savasana.

The simplest although most difficult pose, we are just observers. We do not need to analyze or to search for the meanings, for the lessons because when you observe this happens automatically. We forget the body, the mind, the feelings…. We do not feel, think, and act. We simply are and discover the essence of Being!!!!

Teaching style

I am an open minded and none dogmatic Yoga teacher. I combine  my knowledge of Pranayma, Yoga Nidra, Flow Yoga, Mindfulness, Mantra and NLP. The sessions will make you come closer to your inner being and has as a unique approach to teaching Yoga.

My unique approach of teaching Yoga respects the freedom, the way of learning, the motivation and the believes of each students and helps each of you to experience the benefits of "experiential learning" which is is a process of appropriating knowledge through experience and the search of personal meaning in it. This way of teaching also promotes the personal development of learners and their awareness. It emphasizes the links between the learning space, the daily life of the learners and the social reality and could be defined as a "jouney of discovery of the meaning of human existence and nature of the common good". (1)

Experienced Yoga teacher, I am happy to share generously my knowledge and experience of Pranayma, Yoga Nidra, Flow Yoga, Mindfulness, Mantra and NLP in order for you to find the power to evolve and go along with ease on your path & come closer to your inner being.

I teach in Greek, French and English-Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

 

A brief biographie

I first met Yoga in 1993 in France where I took Satyananda Yoga lessons. In 1998 I succefully passed the B.E.E.S (Sports Instructor Certification) in France although Yoga was not a specialisation at this time. I begun to teach Yoga in 2001. In order to complete my training, in 2004 I left for London to follow a 300h Teacher Yoga Course recognised by the International Yoga Network. During my stay I took the chance to follow meditations lessons and seminars at the Brahma Kumaris University. Today I am a E-RYT Yoga Alliance registered Teacher.

Wow! Valerie, this time I could answer most of the questions you asked me. And I made the exercise! Huge difference for questions 1 and 4! Less difference for the rest of the questions (when going bottom-up). I think it gave me much confidence to proceed with my job search. Thank you so much for helping me! Many many thanks, once more! Maritta
