Back to earth yoga / Dynamic Vinyasa Yoga connecting to the land

This practice will be all about rooting into the land and mountains that will hold us for the next few days during our yoga festival. We will move through a deep and dynamic practice to strengthen, ground and support us for the next few days.
The physical practice will be a dynamic Vinyasa practice with focus on creating a strong sense of core and midline to hold us. Standing postures that ground us and sweet end of practice with some longer holds to calm the mind and truly arrive.

Weekend Welcome
Allow yourself to simply arrive in this session - arrive at 1850m above sea level at the 6th Mountain Yoga Festival in St. Anton am Arlberg. We will hold the various asanas with calmness and precision, enjoy them and above all let them take effect on us.
Derived from Sanskrit, "ha" stands for sun/power and "tha" for moon/rest. The aim of Hatha Yoga is to combine these opposing forces. The combination of asanas and pranayama will not only increase your flexibility, but also bring patience and self-acceptance. The goal, as Patanjali describes it in the Yogasutras, is "the calming of the movement of the mind.

Eat the rainbow

This workshop introduces the participants to the concept of eating to balance the energies of all 7 Chakras. Starting with the root to the crown chakra.
The chakras represent the colors of the rainbow. Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red.
Plus all 6 tastes that work with the Constitutions of VATA PITTA And KAPHA. The idea is to de-mystify the use of Ayurveda in your daily meals. Simple ideas to use spices and the right color foods for balancing your meals and improving your metabolism.

Yin Yang & all about balance
Yin and Yang is a Chinese symbol that represents opposite symbols in union. Yin, shown in black in the symbol, stands for the receiving, passive, feminine principle. In contrast, yang, shown in white, stands for activity and masculinity. In the interplay of these two principles, life unfolds in all its ever-changing phenomena. Together, Yin and Yang are a unity - one could not exist without the other.

In this unity we would like to connect exactly these 2 energies. We start with a flowing yoga practice suitable for all levels and then hold some poses from Yin Yoga for a little longer time to move from doing to being. Allow your body to let go.

Meditation is one of the fundamental practices of yoga but often the least easy to study and perform. Beginner students tend to get turned away by over-detailed instructions and by the idea that meditation is another practice to add to their already tight schedule.
In this class you will learn how to approach the intimate action of meditation and make it a form of self-care routine, by simple-focused tools for awareness.

The power of choice
This will be a dynamic and fun class. The purpose of this class is to understand that there is a very basic form to every difficult pose, and there is an intelligent way to build every pose. There will be many different options within this class so that each student can choose where he/she wants to stay and at the same time we all practice together as one.

Kundalini Yoga - Be active to cultivate quiet

Exploring, noticing and welcoming the Polarities with in us

In this class we will strengthen our centre and connect with the power that is within us and in the community. The abdominal centre - the Manipura Chakra - is the home of the digestive organs and represents courage, willpower and self-confidence. It is the centre of our body intelligence and somatic wisdom.
With this powerful energy we then dive into a deep relaxation and time of integration.
This flowing Hatha and Kundalini inspired class balances body, mind and spirit.

Flow & Play
Step by step in this unit we will connect different movements synchronously with our breathing until a kind of meditation - a FLOW - emerges. You will also have the opportunity to bring out your inner child and, if you wish, leave your comfort zone. Playfully we try out what your body and mind are capable of. And very importantly, this is not a workout where the goal is to go "faster", "higher", "further". There is no competition in yoga - long live diversity.

Rock & Roll Flow
Good Tunes, Good Yoga - singing along, playing the air-guitar, being carried away by emotions - all of this is part of yoga. Since the beginning of civilization, music has created community, music is a universal language, music liberates the body ... this class is a music based vinyasa flow, open level, some knowledge of yoga is advantageous

Sacred flow, sacred detox and twists

We will begin the practice with some breath work to invoke some heat and activate our stomach and also our power centre. Sandra will weave creative flows with a lot of heat to build the agni and fire within to then be able to twist and turn from our very core. The intention is that you will leave lighter in both body , mind and spirit.
It is essential that you do not eat a heavy snack or meal before this practice as we will really release and massage our inner organs trough movement. As always we will end our practice with sweet longer holds and restorative poses that are a part of the same family as the more dynamic asanas.

Give your liver a smile and it will smile back
Here I give you some important nutritional tips that will help you to do something good for your liver, even in your often hectic everyday life. The liver is a multifunctional organ, but although it is one of the most important organs in our body, we often pay too little attention to it.
You will learn more about the tasks and functions of your liver. Afterwards, we will go into a Yin Yoga session together, through which we will gently activate our liver metabolism. Whether you are a yoga beginner or a professional, if you are interested in a holistic view of your body and your health, this workshop is for you!

Young, old, background, beginner or advanced - this class is for each and every one of you. I'm looking forward to getting on the mat with a variety of yogis, reviewing the last few days and celebrating life's contrasts.

We are diverse and powerful!
When we look at ourselves oftentimes we tend to see multiplicity and diversity.
Who am I? The old-time yoga practitioner, the shy and unresolved human being who still looks for public recognition, the volunteer worker, the attractive and strong minded teacher or simply someone feeling splintered by the many different layers that he seems to shift in and out of?
In meditation we actually move through those many layers of ourselves.
In this class, you will learn how to navigate through the diversified geography of your inner body and the many layers of yourself progressively learning to unlock the hidden power in each one of them.
