Monday-Friday Mysore Week | 07:00 - 10:00
To be able to commit a long term practice, it is fundamental to find sustainability. A way to do this is to create a different relation between each student and the method; taking in account time available, body conditions and experience with the practice.
This is a very important subject that Eloisa has been exploring and experimenting with during her past years of practicing and teaching. This week we will focus on making our practices durable in time. Doing this will enable you to experince long term benefits in your body and mind.
Saturday "Growing from our roots" Backbending Workshop | 09:30 - 12:30
Backbendings can be approached gently and with patience. This is what this workshop aims for.
AStarting from the most simple and therapeutic ones we will discover different wasy of bending our backs slowly and gently. From there, we will move on, step by step towards establishing a sustainable approach to backbending.

In this workshop we will approach the manifold ways of transitions between Ashtanga Yoga asanas.

Transitions can be fun, starting with easy walks towards joyful hopping, we may end up jumping and flying!

Eloisa was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela and she currently lives in Maastricht, Netherlands where she teaches a Mysore program and other yoga classes.
Before Eloisa dedicated her life and career completely to yoga, she worked as a pre-shool teacher in a constructivist pre-shool. In constructivist pre-shooling educational efforts get tailored to the individual needs and talents of children. Teaching Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style gave continuity to her educational mission to build knowledge and self discovery throgh the use of strategies suited to individual requirements and abilities.
Eloisa found yoga in 2011 and it was Liz Carraquel in Caracas who took her by the hand during her first steps on the path of Ashtanga Yoga. Inspired by the dedication and love of her teacher, and tired if the rythm of a big city, she decided to undertake her first adventure to India.
And so, in 2014 she traveled to India to practice Ashtanga Yoga, and she was captivated by the discipline and devotion of all her teachers and the whole community of practitioners that were there together to practice and study. This first contact was a great source of inspiration to her. Ever since, Eloisa has been returning every year to India to continue to study and practice Ashtanga Yoga with Sharath Jois and to assist him in class at KPJAYI, now SYC (Sharath Yoga Center). In 2016 Eloisa received the authorization to teach Ashtanga Yoga.
Since that first trip to India in 2014, Eloisa also started to study Philosophy and devotional chanting with Dr. M. Jayashree and Prof. M. Narasimha at the Anatha Research Fooundation. This has helped her to understand more deeply how to apply the philosophy of Yoga to daily life, and to feel connected with chanting as a devotional practice.
The search for balance and acceptance is her greatest passion at the moment. Through life Eloisa has gone from one extreme to another and she is currently discovering how to calibrate discipline and joy, work and rest and many other aspects of life that look like opposites but cannot function in harmony without each other.
Having quality time with family and friends, cooking, walking in nature, dancing and laughing are also a very important part of Eloisa's life process.
