June 17th-18th, 2017: Workshop Highlight with Sandra Pribanic
Understanding Body & Mindfulness: A Weekend Exploration of Embodiment, Presence and Aliveness

Join us for a weekend of self-exploration:
Learn about mindfulness, grounding, emotional flow and emotional “structure”, get curious about your bodies that you inhabit (physical, emotional, mental, energy, spiritual) and the underlying patterns reflected in your body.

Weekend Workshop:
▪ Teaching
▪ 11.00-1.00pm Lunch Break
▪ 01.00-4.00pm Teaching

You will practice and integrate the following:
Breath as a vehicle and anchor to help one return, over and over, to oneself
Mindfulness, Meditation, and Grounding
▪ The body as a faithful witness: anchoring into one’s physical, emotional, mental, energy body, and understand the unterlying energy-emotional-thought-belief patterns
▪ Practice mindful presence: find your deep anchor within, explore what happens „inside“ and bring more awareness to everyday life and relationships (to self and others)
▪ Learn what mindfulness, grounding, boundaries, emotional flow and “structure” have to do with strength, intentional living, ability to embrace change, healing and integration
▪ Improve your ability to apply these ideas professionally in addition to your personal journeys

▪ Learn specific experiential exercises and visualizations that you can use every day

Teachings will be based on a combination of theory-presentations and practical experiential exercises with guidance.

This weekend intensive is meant for anyone on a journey of a personal growth and self exploration, or deepening of already existing yoga / meditation / spiritual practice. The intensive is an opportunity to experience, explore, and solidify what you are working on in your personal journey, in a safe and intentional way.

Take the chance and join this weekend-intensive with this super kind, beautiful inside and out woman whos teachings will deepen your understanding about yourself and your mindfulness practice. Sandra comes to Salzburg for the first time ever and it is the only Workshop in Europe this year!

About Sandra:

Search for meaning and understanding led Sandra to study body-centered and psychodynamic psychotherapy, craniosacral and energy work, in Europe, USA and Canada. Her work is about exploring places where mind–body–heart–spirit can experience connectedness, about recognizing what moves and makes us alive, about bringing what is quiet within us to get heard, and about creating space for intense/difficult emotions. Above all, about making space for all there is. Sandra has facilitated workshops for women, co-facilitated workshops for couples, and was a faculty member at the Lionheart Institute for Transpersonal Psychotherapy in USA. She currently teaches “Listening Skills and Mindfulness” as part of David Robson’s Assisting School and Immersion at the Ashtanga Yoga Center of Toronto, as well as a series of self-exploration seminars based on mindfulness and body-centeredness. Her approach is holistic, engaging, and supportive of one’s unique individual journey. Sandra is a psychotherapist, teacher, yogi, wife, friend, and a proud mamma of her 3-year old son. She lives, works, and practices daily Ashtanga Yoga in Toronto, Canada. She tries to quiet her mind and find the still small voice within daily; and sometimes, she succeeds.

June 20th-25th, 2017: Retreat Highlight with Ralf Marzen
The 5 Bodies & Thaimassage
Ralf Marzen in Kärnten @ Dom Aurora

Healing the physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions of ourselves and our clients.

Bildschirmfoto 2016-12-06 um 12.04.55

This course is specially designed for Thai Massage Practitioners (only) to expand and deepen your understanding of Thai massage and of bodywork in general.


  • ’read’ your clients better and adjust your sessions to better suit each individual
  • understand more deeply what happens during the course of a treatment
  • work with your clients (and yourself) with more presence and more metta (loving kindness)
  • add many new techniques and tools to advance your massage practice

Using the ancient yogic map of the 5 koshas (5 bodies), we will explore how our treatments affect our clients (and ourselves) on physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.

In the mornings…
…we focus on lectures, meditation, bodywork, discussions, and partner & group exercises to travel through the different layers of our being. These processes are inspiring, fun, at times challenging, and they will help us to create deeper insight and self-awareness for our bodywork practice.

In the afternoons…
…we transfer what we have learned onto the mat:
We will learn to address the 5 bodies more specifically and with clearer intention. This will be of great value to your practice, and will help to make your treatments less random and more specific to each individual.

To really deepen the time and to let it sink we will have early morning meditation & yoga classes. In the evenings we will be guided by wonderful Live music and we can fall aslepp in a beautiful soundbath.

Ashtanga Workshop with KPJAYI Level II authorised MANU ROSSI
You want to experience Ashtanga Yoga at a deeper Level and you just love to always get inspired by longterm practitioners of this powerful Yoga method?

September 10th-11th, Saturday-Sunday
Weekend Workshop:

▪ Mysore Practice
▪ 11.00-1.00pm Lunch break
▪ 01.00-4.00pm Afternoon classes

Afternoon Classes – Overview:
▪ Ashtanga Yoga as the Yoga of Breathing
▪ Jump-back and jump-through
▪ Correct Vinyasa
▪ Healthy knees & hips, happy backbends
▪ Breathing Kriyas (breathing techniques)
▪ Talk on Samasthitih

Afternoon Classes – Details:
According to the teachings of Sri T. Krishnamacharya and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, “BREATH IS LIFE”. Breathing is our most fundamental and vital act and holds a divine essence.The continuity of deep, even breathing cannot be overemphasized in the Ashtanga Yoga system. When breath feeds action, and action feeds posture, each movement becomes gentle, precise, and perfectly steady. In the breath resides the key to take the yoga practice to deeper and more subtle layers of awareness.

In these afternoon classes the breathing will be our constant theme as it is also in the practice. We will look at how the breathing affects our yoga practice, how it improves our techniques and the overall flow and feeling of the practice. Keeping the focus on the breathing we will also explore the so called “classics” of the practice, the jump-back and jump-through, correct Vinyasa, healthy knees and hips and happy back-bends. Breathing Kriyas (breathing techiques) will be taught on the first afternoon. A small talk on Samasthitih will be given at the end of the second afternoon. There will always be space for discussing, sharing and Q&A.

He met his guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in 2005 when studying at the KPJAYI in Mysore. He studied at KPJAYI for extended periods every year since then. In 2006 Manu moved to London to continue his studying with Hamish Hendry at Ashtanga Yoga London, who daily inspires him as a model of dedication and faith.
