Yoga for Men

San­ti­das Yoga is all about equal­i­ty. We seek to pro­mote the prac­tice of Yoga to Men. We under­stand that many men shy away from Yoga as it has become more geared to a female audi­ence with most­ly female teach­ers. Men are as much in need of the prac­tice of Yoga than women. A reg­u­lar prac­tice will improve phys­i­cal and men­tal flex­i­bil­i­ty, decrease lev­els of stress, and cre­ate men­tal and phys­i­cal strength, need­ed as much as by men as for women. Yet the phys­i­cal needs might be dif­fer­ent: strength might be more impor­tant the flex­i­bil­i­ty, dif­fer­ent pos­tures work on dif­fer­ent men­tal and spir­i­tu­al lev­el, com­mu­ni­ca­tion dif­fers. Sash, with his almost 40 years of teach­ing expe­ri­ence recog­nis­es this need and is ded­i­cat­ed to teach - in Eng­lish and French - a unique class for - men only - bring­ing out the Shi­va god (God of the male pow­er). We begin this class as of 8th of Jan­u­ary and will bring on more as demand might rise. All lev­els open.

  1. The Secret of Peace - Retreat in Italy 24.7.-28.7

    Many of us yearn for Peace. Yoga shows us how to work on our inner peace in order to inter­act with our envi­ron­ment and make it more peace­ful. Besides a deep and spir­i­tu­al Yoga prac­tice, there are meth­ods and instru­ments that we can use to facil­i­tate of how we respond and engage in con­flict. In this retreat, nes­tled in Grem­poli a peace cen­tre in Tus­cany, Italy, we will reflect and prac­tice peace work both with­in and in engage­ment of oth­ers. We will query our rela­tion­ship with con­flict, ques­tion our approach to com­mu­ni­cat­ing with oth­ers, ques­tion our atti­tude to our­selves and oth­ers, always com­ing back to the breath and medi­a­tion to build deep strong inner foun­da­tions to strength­en our resilience. It is a jour­ney for the seri­ous Yoga and Peace seek­er, facil­i­tat­ed by San­ti Das - Dr. Antje Her­rberg a peace prac­ti­tion­er and teacher and Yogi for decades. This is the first retreat of this kind, bring­ing two worlds of peace­mak­ing togeth­er. The jour­ney will entail sta­mi­na for ear­ly ris­ing, veg­e­tar­i­an cui­sine and self­less ser­vice to the com­mu­ni­ty (Kar­ma Yoga), a will­ing­ness to share and to care. Dis­cre­tion and ded­i­ca­tion are an impor­tant ingre­di­ent. For more infor­ma­tion or ques­tion please con­tact also: santidas.​herrberg@​gmail.​com

  2. Hormone Yoga Workshop with Lucia

    Hor­mones reign our life ! Reg­u­late your hor­mon­al changes with a spe­cif­ic Yoga sequence and reduce depen­den­cy from hor­mon­al sub­sti­tutes, live hor­mon­al changes with much more ease and less dis­com­fort. Lucia Vimer­cati will lead us through this work­shop. She is cer­ti­fied by Dinah Rodrigues, the pio­neer ‘moth­er’ of this approach which has helped thou­sands of women (and men !) to address spe­cif­ic needs due to a change of our phys­i­cal body.
    Hor­mone Yoga helps to reac­ti­vate hor­mone lev­els and to effec­tive­ly pre­vent or elim­i­nate the symp­toms of menopause. It also ben­e­fits those women suf­fer­ing from hor­mon­al dis­or­ders (PMS, irreg­u­lar peri­ods, poly­cys­tic ovary, thy­roid imbal­ance) and those who have dif­fi­cul­ties get­ting preg­nant due to low hor­mone lev­els. Through dynam­ic yoga pos­es, ener­getic breath­ing exer­cis­es, visu­al­iza­tion and some Tibetan ener­gy cir­cu­la­tion tech­niques, Hor­mone Yoga stim­u­lates the glands asso­ci­at­ed with hor­mone pro­duc­tion i.e. the ovaries, the thy­roid and parathy­roid, the hypophi­sis and the adren­a­ls. Once you learn the sequence it will take you 30 min­utes to prac­tice it and it is rec­om­mend­ed to prac­tice it at least 3-4 times per week to obtain the desired results.
    Dur­ing the work­shop we will slow­ly go through the sequence and explain the dif­fer­ent exer­cis­es step by step. We will also look at some anti-stress and relax­ation tech­niques. At the end you will get a hand­book with all the instruc­tions so that you can con­tin­ue to prac­tice it at home.
    Con­traindi­ca­tions: Hor­mone Yoga is con­tra-indi­cat­ed in case of preg­nan­cy and with cer­tain con­di­tions such as active endometrio­sis, large fibroids, hor­mone depen­dent breast/uterine can­cer or his­to­ry of, undi­ag­nosed abdom­i­nal pain.
    As a pre-reg­is­tra­tion in the work­shop you will receive a ques­tion­naire to make sure you don’t have any con­traindi­ca­tions and to allow the teacher to mod­i­fy the pos­es for you in case of par­tic­u­lar issues.
    Book on www​.san​ti​das​.com after the 10th of Decem­ber. 15 Places avail­able
