We're fortunate to have Mukesh Kothari back so soon for a one-day program after his successful first weekend workshop here a month ago. Native to Rishikesh, Mukesh invites you to take an authentic journey to discover and use yoga methods correctly: asana, pranayama, bandha, and ayurveda through theme-based workshops which create understanding and bestow wonderful benefits.
They were developed to improve your practice, master advanced postures, develop breathing skills, understand the anatomy in yoga and learn useful secrets behind training. The workshops are dedicated to all levels. Beginners welcome!
"The Force of Prana"
Join intensive 3 hours on application of bandhas and pranas in the yoga system.
This workshop will throw light on three key concepts:
Bandhas are a unique practice in the yoga system that enhances the health of glands and their secretions. Proper use of bandhas can eliminate diseases and provides vitality. Efficient use of bandhas can help to do asanas and pranayama efficiently and effectively.
Pranayama are breathing works of yoga that are designed to help the respiratory system and boost internal vitality. 3 basic pranayama will be done along with intensive asanas.
In short, main benefits of this workshop are:

"Hip-Opening Fundamentals and Evolution"
One-leg pigeon series is the second part of the hip opening yoga workshop in Luxembourgh, taking it to the deeper level by focussing on iliopsoas work. This is the key muscle according to yoga that controls our movement, thoughts, state of mind, and satisfaction. The workshop is suitable for all levels as we explore all variations that lead to deeper hip opening.
Since yoga came first, our lives have changed a lot, and its continuous challenges of daily life affect our hips and make them to lock up, and that’s not a good thing when it comes to pain, mobility, or even our emotions.
Nearly everything we do in daily life, it leads to closing up our hip muscles: sitting at your desk, driving, watching TV, reading, physical training, and even working out.
Too much sitting either at work or at home, in particular, shortens the hip flexors and hamstrings, which limits the range of motion and contributes to lower back pain, slouching, neck pain and bad posture.
According to the tenets of yoga, tight hips can also affect our mind and emotional state. The hips are believed to be the holding place for negative emotions such as fear and sadness as they constitute a significant section of lower chakras.
The yogic solution to both problems – physical and emotional – is to move prana, or energy, through the hips.
"Hip-Opening Fundamentals and Evolution" workshop of 120 minutes to explore your physical and emotional state.
