Course in France and Washington DC Conference

After teaching the Lymphatic Yoga course in France, I went to the National Lymphedema Network (NLN) Conference in  Washington D.C. I sincerely apologize that lately I haven’t posted in the blog. I’ve been traveling so much teaching about Lymphatic Yoga and for while I will write in the blog more sparsely. In addition, I’m writing the second book of the trilogy Lymphatic Yoga! It will be ready soon!

Of course, it was my honor to be talking in London, May 10-11,  at the “20th anniversary MLD Conference” for all seasoned Manual Lymph Drainage therapists, physiotherapists and physicians. Thanks Sherry Fetzer for your support to the Lymphatic Yoga.

Lots of you have asked me about my second book of Lymphatic Yoga. Yes, it’s on the way! It includes several Lymphatic Yoga practical sessions (CD included) not only for those with fully functional Lymphatic System but also for those people with Lymphedema, Lipedema and auto-immune conditions.

 

COURSE IN FRANCE / JULY-201410378096_807511495960932_8530818259757608705_n

Summer was so busy!  In July, I was in France teaching a weeklong Lymphatic    Yoga course. We all had a blast over there! How magical was the experience in the Pyrenees! People from the US and England participated and came out not only with innovative knowledge but also refreshed in body, mind, and spirit! Some of the comments were:

 

 

“It was perfect”

“This course literally changes the perspective of Yoga and your body. It brings you hope!”

“I’ll go next year again! I want do everything again!”

“It was everything I was looking for!”

“My body was different, it was lighter. My skin was silky, almost shining! how different I felt after a week, I’m surprised and amazed.”

“Can’t wait for the next book”

“When will you do the next one?”

“Perfect mix of knowledge, health improvement and vacation. I loved it!

Here are some pictures of our magical experience :

Lymphatic Yoga Workshop in France 2014

I’m still “jet-lagged” but couldn’t wait to share some exciting news with you!  I just arrived from South France. I was invited to teach a Lymphatic Yoga workshop in France next summer at the Marcevol Monastery in the Pyrenees Mountains!!!
Le Canigou

Le Canigou – Amazing view from the yoga room

The Marcevol Monastery is located on the famous “El Camino” or “St. Jacques Way.”  Today, this monastery is not active anymore as a monastery but as a place of visitation and yoga and meditation workshops.
This is a breathtaking place! During the practice we will be facing and contemplating through the windows “Le Canigou” the highest mountains in the Pyrenees. According to tradition, these mountains and the St. Jacques Way have an indefinable spiritual aura and powerful healing atmosphere. We’re all going to soak in this amazing energy field for 6  to 9 days (optional) practicing and understanding Lymphatic Yoga. Can’t wait!
I’m so happy I can share this with you  :)
I’m going to teach in English from Monday, Jun 30 to Tuesday, July 8, 2014.  We are also going to do some walking or hiking trips to visit some of the sites in the area. Walking is a sure way to move your lymph fluid. Walking in the St. Jacques path deeply feeds your inner soul.
Some guided excursions are planned for the end of the course. Accommodation in the monastery is limited to 25 people. It includes all meals! Of course, delicious fresh French food will be on our menu! Space is limited. More details later when booking opens.

This was a magical trip for me. I was with my friends Simone and her husband Danny in their home at Ceret. Fig, grapes and cherry trees were in their beautiful backyard. The figs and grapes were simply “freshly” delicious! I had the opportunity to go to Lourdes also in the Pyrenees. It was transcendental! Thank you to my dear friends for this amazing experience!
