Yoga in Kalandraka
Our yoga classes are taught by Nicole Papa. Nicole has been passionately practicing yoga since 2000 and is trained in Sivananda and Ashtanga yoga based on the AYI® method (Inspired Teacher Training) by Dr. Ronald Steiner. She gained further Ashtanga yoga knowledge from various teachers in Mysore (India). Currently she is being trained by Dr. Ronald Steiner as an Advanced Teacher in the AYI® method. Through her anatomy and physiology studies in the USA, she has a profound knowledge of the anatomical workings of the body, which she continues to deepen through her further education. Nicole has been climbing for 30 years, has reached a level of 5.13d or French 8b and has been teaching yoga, climbing and the combination of the two in Germany and Spain for many years.
Yoga and the style taught by Nicole:
Yoga is an Indian philosophical tradition that developed out of humanity’s age-old search for the essence. On this quest the techniques of yoga have changed constantly since the first writings about 3000 years ago. The AYI® method taught by Nicole continues that journey by combining old and new and brings together the traditional practice system of Ashtanga yoga and the latest scientific findings, especially in the fields of medicine, kinesiology and psychology. The practice she teaches cultivates balance as the base for liveliness and sees a chance to experience the essence in the here and now, in this world and in this body. This combination of ancient techniques (Vinyasa, Bandha and Dristhi) and a modern approach makes Nicole’s teaching a moving meditation carried by the breath. In her classes she finds the right position and intensity for each student – from athletic and acrobatic to therapeutic and preventive.
Open classes for everyone – from beginners to advanced yogis – in Spanish, English and German.
- Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.
