Strength vs Flexibility Workshop in relation to a healthy back with Claire Dalloz, Zürich


85% of the population occasionally has back problems. If these back pains are due a sedentary lifestyle and lack of movement we can greatly alleviate them with the correct practice of yoga. Yoga works against such pains by helping to stretch, strengthen and relax the appropriate areas of the body. Shortening of muscles and tension in the back can be greatly relieved with yoga by knowing which asanas to practice and more importantly how to practice them: which muscles to strengthen, which muscles to relax, what modifications or props are necessary etc.


In this workshop we will deepen the learning covered during the first workshop and carry on to focus on the role the legs and the hips play in maintaining a pain-free back.

Participants who missed the first workshop are welcome. We will begin by summarizing what was covered in part 1 before moving on to the content of this workshop.

Strength vs Flexibility Workshop with Claire Dalloz


“Sthiram sukham asanam”. PS 2.46


This is the only Sutra by Patanjali that refers to Asana (the seat). It expresses the essence of asana: it should be steady and at the same time at ease and relaxed. We will play with the balance of steadiness and ease in this workshop.

  • How much strength, how much action is needed in order to find stability?
  • What part of my body needs to be strong and active?
  • What role do the bandhas play?
  • Where can I completely let go?
  • How far do I need to stretch? What is enough?

These and other questions will guide us through this workshop and enable each participant to find a healthy and balanced approach to the asana practice.  Since we will be working with arm balances and inversions this workshop is not appropriate for beginners.

Meditation with Martine Burgy, Yoga with Claire Dalloz at YogaTopia, Herrliberg


The concept of Meditation has become so well known that almost everyone has an idea of it. What, however, is meditation really? What is it not? What are the benefits? And for whom is meditation suitable? What obstacles can appear? These and other questions based on the tradition of Sri Patanjali will be addressed during this workshop. In between we will use pranayama and asana to stretch, strengthen and relax the body.

Module 5 - the Retreat

7 day retreat in the beautiful, newly-renovated Boutique Hotel Country House Montessino, Italy. In the distant past on one of the picturesque hills of the Monferrato, the hamlet of Montessino belonged to a large Italian wine-growing family. In 2016 Claudia and Alessandro acquired one of the historic houses (built 1850) and restored it with great passion and care for detail. This is where we will spend our final week of the 100 hour immersion course together. This is truly a place to “lean back and enjoy the pleasures of life in harmony with nature, following the motto Carpe Diem” as they say on their website.
