Workshops are events in Berlin which are held for only a limited time. Here we try to find topics as well as teachers which and who will offer us a defined emphasis from the immense subject of Yoga.

29.-31.3.2019 The Body loves Gentleness with Sandra Sabatini

It is the surprising thing I learn again and again in workshops with Sandra Sabatini. This lesson reaches far beyond the physical into all areas of life. Gentle is the nature of the poses, gentle as Sandra conveys them, and I too will become gentle when I practice them. In Sandra Sabatini’s sensitive yoga the breath and your own experience are the focus, not challenging poses.

In her book titled ‘The Breath – the Essence of Yoga’ she writes: “The breath is the key which can open a thousand doors – a never-ending, small, but unbelievably strong laser able to remove layers of incrustation. … ‘Learning’ no longer arises from the wish to attain a goal or purpose, but comes from a successive unfolding – an effortless blossoming.” In her classes, she assists us to find our own centre. A new, gentle, and even surprising way to practice is possible, which helps us to recognize the great power of attentiveness. (Ute Aurand)

Born in Australia and raised in Africa, Sandra Sabatini returned to the land of her parents – Italy – in her mid-twenties. Here she began her yoga practice and in 1985 became student of the yoga pioneer Vanda Scaravelli.
