·       We are so happy to welcome Ahimsa-ka Satya back to Timor-Leste!


Beginning on 21 March Ahimsaka will teach the following schedule:

              Mondays-Fridays,

Upstairs Studio
Celebrate a new day with a 2-in-1 dynamic yoga class:
6:15-6:45am = wake-up yoga, short
(Sun salutations + variations: take some rest and move wakefully into your day.)
6:15-7:30am = wake-up yoga, long
(Or, stay and continue into a standard ashtanga inspired morning yoga sequence.)
Both parts of this unit class are intended to create your own morning yoga ritual.  For regular practitioners the class can be modified to create your own personalized yoga routine.  For the occasional practitioner and the curious a wholistic, dynamic yoga sequence is offered to help you feel complete and awake in this new day.
Price:
Drop-in for short session = $8
Drop-in for long session = $15
5-class pass for short session = $25 (valid for 1 week only, Monday-Friday)
5-class pass for long session = $60 (valid for 1 week only, Monday-Friday, for any long wake up yoga or yin classes)
20-class pass = $200 (valid for 1 month only, for any long wake up yoga or yin classes)

Mondays-Fridays
Cafe Studio
4:30-6:00pm = yin afternoon yoga
An hour and a half of a calming yoga practice focusing physically on connective tissue, especially hips and lower back, mentally on calming the mind to provide stillness, and energetically on the meridians (energy lines) interconnecting our complete being and creating awareness and wholeness.  Poses are held for longer periods of time, 3 to 5 minutes.  Props are used to make yourself comfortable.  The mind is eased into a state of letting go.  These classes can be used to maintain or regain mobility and openness in your joints, to unwind, or as a journey into meditation, all of which are complimentary and beneficial to a more vigorous yoga practice and a lifestyle where having stress is part of the norm.
Price:
Drop-in = $15
5-class pass = $60 (valid for 1 week only, for any yin or long wake up yoga classes)
20-class pass = $200 (valid for 1 month only, for any yin or long wake up yoga classes)

Wednesdays
Upstairs Studio
12:30-1:30pm = gentle flow
Gentle flow is hatha yoga asanas combined into calm paced sequence working the complete body and mind, and with extra attention to the hips.
Price:
Drop-in = $10
5-class pass = $40 (valid for 6 weeks)

Saturdays
Upstairs Studio
The Saturday classes are an  extension of the wake up yoga classes throughout the week. 
6.30-8:30am = ashtanga primary series
This class will go back to the source and focus on the ashtanga primary series.
Price:
Drop-in = $20
10-class pass = $150 (valid for 6 weeks, for any class with same duration and price)

Saturdays
Upstairs Studio
5:00-7:00pm = back bend class
This class starts where the morning class ends, with back bending.  This class can be used to venture further and deeper into your yoga practice and is a good preparation for the Sunday morning classes.
Price:
Drop-in = $20
10-class pass = $150 (valid for 6 weeks, for any class with same duration and price)

Sundays
Upstairs Studio
The two hour Sunday classes offer more time to practice and explore your yoga practice in general (Sunday morning classes) or specific elements thereof (early afternoon vinyasa technics, late afternoon yin yoga with meditation and relaxation).

7:00-9:00am = morning yoga
This is a more advanced class of the regular morning practice.  It is inspired by the ashtanga vinyasa yoga style, and depending on the level of the students, poses from the 2nd and/or 3rd ashtanga series can be practiced.

10:00am-12:00pm = introduction to morning yoga 

This is an ashtanga primary series introduction class.  This class is recommended for anyone that likes to come to the week day ‘wake-up yoga’ morning classes, and/or that that wants to be introducted to it to get more background information.

1:00-3:00pm = vinyasa technics
The early afternoon class is more of a hands-on practice class going into the vinyasa techniques such as floating forward and backward, lifting up into handstands, inversions, and more.

4:00-6:00pm = yin yoga
This class will wind down into stillness, with the focus being on active relaxation, breath work, and meditation, by staying longer in supported 'yin' poses.
Price:
Drop-in = $20
              10-class pass = $150 (valid for 6 weeks, for any class with same duration and price)


Ahimsa-ka received his 300 hour yoga teaching certification in 2011 in yoga and yoga therapy in Mysore, India after a year of voluntary yoga study at a retreat in Hawaii.  He has been teaching since then in Bali, Indonesia and frequently goes back to India to continue his yoga studies, and to deepen his own yoga practice.  His teachings are a reflection of his daily yoga practice and will provide a sense of completeness for body and mind by taking the body as a starting point to move within.  It is strongly influenced by the Ashtanga style of yoga, but definitely not limited to it.  Ahimsa-ka’s main aim is to empower the student to use yoga as a tool to create a fuller and holistic way of living.
