« May all beings everywhere, with whom we are inseparably interconnected, be fulfilled, awakened and free. May there be peace in this world and throughout the entire universe, and may we all together complete the spiritual journey. »Lama Surya Das
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
Yoga is an art to be experienced, practiced, felt. The mind rests and the wisdom of the body is let out to reveal itself. Healing comes from the synthesis of body and mind in a safe space.
Drawing from many schools and philosophies, beyond dogma and preconceptions we bring the teachings to simplicity depending on the person we are working with.
We have been very fortunate to study with some of the greatest teachers around the world, over many years.
We believe that a good teacher is someone who has the experience, education, open mindness and deep caring to help the student benefit from techniques (asanas, meditation, pranayama, visualisation) and take them home, thus creating and sustaining a personal practice with contemplation and curiosity.
“The still waters of a lake reflect the beauty around it. When the mind is still, the beauty of the Self is seen reflected in it.” – BKS Iyengar
“Love creates a communion with life. Love expands us, connects us, sweetens us, ennobles us. Love springs up in tender concern, it blossoms into caring action. It makes beauty out of all we touch. In any moment we can step beyond our small self and embrace each other as beloved parts of a whole.”- Jack Kornfield
Careen is practicing yoga for 20 years. Through her passion for the practice she became a certified Yoga Alliance teacher and was inspired to take several teacher trainings in Ashtanga Yoga, Power Yoga, Therapeutic, Vinyasa Flow and Yin/Yang Yoga. Inspired by different styles, she incorporates those into her yoga classes, a soft, dynamic and strengthening practice. She invites students to check into the body and move into space created by the breath. The practice creates an opportunity to deepen physical and emotional ease. For the love of yoga Careen teaches also toddlers, children and teens, privately and in local schools. She is a certified teacher of Mini Me Yoga, Y.O.G.A. for YOUTH and AMT (l’Académie de la pleine conscience). Her classes are fun and filled with animals and exciting adventures, her students are encouraged to work at their own level and take responsibility for their own well-being. The practice of yoga is a practice of life!
