Yoga is a wonderful way to journey on a path of self-awareness, to practice a humorous approach to small and big weaknesses and to develop love for one's own body. From March 21st to March 25th, 2018, learn to combine the practice of Vinyasa Yoga and Kundalini Yoga with a challenging training by Marie Kasper, right in the heart of São Lourenço do Barrocal.
The practice of Yoga is a synthesis of physical exercises, conscious breathing, concentration and meditation exercises, energy work and a healthy lifestyle. Regularly practicing these methods of Yoga allows blocked energy to flow, strengthens both physically and mentally, and lets you relax more deeply and fully.

“It is my desire to teach Yoga as an honest and exciting way of communication between ourselves and our modern environment.

The inspiration for my Yoga lessons is therefore drawn from the richness of life itself!”

— Marie Kasper

VINYASA YOGA & KUNDALINI YOGA


Marie’s teaching style is characterised by the Vinyasa Yoga and of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
Besides offering challenging physical exertion, Vinyasa includes the art of letting go and relaxing. Therefore both the meditative level and yoga philosophy are expressed in their own way.
Kundalini Yoga works through simple but special asanas. They are often carried out in the sitting position and are repeated or held for a minute. The traditional style is above all dynamic and demands perseverance. Using the so-called Kriya exercise series, a huge potential of energy is awakened and the body is cleansed.
Transforming, healing and meditative at the same time!

The retreat is suited for beginners and advanced yoga practitioners and will be held in English.

ABOUT MARIE KASPER


Movement and action are inseparable from rest and relaxation. This is the core of Marie's philosophy.
Marie Kasper spent her childhood in Belgium, her home country, before moving to Spain at the age of 15 and to Germany at the age of 19. With parents as keen sailors, she travelled the seas at a young age which awakened her curiosity for movement, people and a healthy lifestyle. During her studies of health psychology she acquired deep knowledge about the importance of harmony between body and mind. Marie is broadly equipped with knowledge from various Teacher Trainings in the fields of Yoga (Vinyasa, Kundalini and Hatha), sports (Pilates, functional training, back muscle training), nutrition and massage. Innovatively, she combines them with relaxation, health and beauty, presenting them with professionalism and sensitivity while delivering a holistic understanding of how the body works. In 2010 Marie established her own "Studio MINT”, in Berlin, in which she now primarily trains her clients in Yoga and Pilates.
