Weekend Workshop

En skøn dansk kvinde kom forbi Cascais til yoga, tak Hanne.
Hanne Ellegaard

En tur til Burma gik i vasken – jeg skulle finde på noget andet, og lykken stod mig bi, og jeg fandt Annett i Cascais. I marts 2014 praktiserede jeg yoga 6 dage i træk, flere gange om dagen – og Paddle surfede. Hvilken fest :0) Ud over at føle mig rigtig godt tilpas, var det også sjovt og udfordrende – for hos Annett skal man arbejde. Hun kan få én til at lave de utroligste øvelser. Og med sit store netværk i lokalmiljøet, får man som turist meget forærende, når man får kendskab til små hyggelige cafeer, spisesteder og mennesker. Tak for en dejlig uge. Jeg kommer helt sikkert igen :0)

This is Your Brain on Yoga

This is Your Brain on Yoga 

BY Kathryn Heagberg

We all know that yoga does wonders for the mind. Even novices of asana, pranayama, and meditation report feeling increased mental stability and clarity during and after practice. Now, thanks to sophisticated brain imaging technologies, neuroscience is proving what teachers and practitioners have known for ages—that yoga and meditation can literally change your brain. But what exactly is going on up there? Take a peek inside—a basic understanding of brain anatomy and function can serve as a handy road map for your inner journey.
