Six days to cultivate a deeper connection to ourselves and others as we dive deeply into the exploration of the sacred power of trust. A journey to internalize, experience, live and expand our trust.

Surrender is the blossom of trust. It means dropping all masks and all limitations. Surrender is freedom beyond judgments, labeling mental & emotional resistance.


Join a safe place to move beyond your fears and limitations. Twist & turns, forward bends & backward bends, inversions & restfulness. All to take with greater ease, stability and calm.


We will also discuss some key yogic philosophical concepts, including Sutras and Samskaras (mental dispositions, recollections and psychological imprints)



We project our assumptions, expectations and fears on the present-moment situation, but throughout this week we will re-free ourselves.


A fusion of Hatha Yoga & Vinyasa Flow: Start the day with a mindful & dynamic class focused on alignments, Ujjayi breath and core activation. We will play around with balancing poses, variations & transitions. 


 A fusion of Hatha & Yin Yoga: End the day with a relaxing and calming class focused on muscle stretches, heart opening and hips & lower back release. Guided meditations will also be offered.

Special offerings

This practice allows two people to relate to one another through assisted postures. You will feel the weight of your partner during the class as if you were receiving constant adjustments. From stretching your levels of trust to strengthening your communication, we will be communicating mostly nonverbally to deepen our body-awareness.


A combination of yoga, acrobatics and Thai massage designed to build trust, strength and connection. A playful and therapeutic form of yoga to overcome your fears in a safe environment.


Yoga inversion is a category of asanas that place your head below your heart, therefore inverting your body. Many yogis experience a certain degree of fear when asked to turn upside down. During this class we will break down inversion poses from the ground up to understand their fondations. A workshop designed to gradually build up your confidence and capacity step by step. We will work in a duo, using the wall and props.
