The Saparella Reserve is one of those unique places on earth which, once reached, shape the perception of happiness and leave an unforgettable memory…

Here, you will be connected to nature at every moment: all your senses will resume their innate function to pass on forgotten sensations, from sunrise where we will indulge in the most beautiful of all Yoga practices, to sunset where we will retire to our tents installed under the trees.

Your body and your mind will be inhabited by a feeling of well-being, calm, relaxation and the happiness of finding back yourself …

Here, on this island, our aphorism: « Yoga is a journey which destination becomes the journey » takes on its full meaning.

This stay will be available in : From 02 to 08 october 2022

A WEEK OF YOGA WITH EDDIE STERN, IN THE HEART OF NATURE, AT THE SAPARELLA RESERVE.

Eddie Stern, is a world renowned Ashtanga Yoga teacher, founder of the Ashtanga Yoga School in New York and of the New York Temple dedicated to Ganesh, on Broome Street.
As Co-editor of the philosophical journal entitled “Namarupa, Categories of Indian Thought” he is also one of the creators of the anti-violence programme called “Urban Yogis”.

Eddie Stern learned Yoga under the guidance of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, from 1991 to 2009, and is still today a student of R. Sharath Jois, from Mysore, India.

Eddie has been travelling all over the world for many years to pass on his knowledge and vision of Yoga practice during dedicated workshops.

For the first time, he will be teaching in Corsica, during our special Autumn long stays.

We shared with him the idea that we would take all the time necessary for you to immerse yourself in his teaching universe, and to meet this man and extraordinary personality.

Between an authentic practice of Yoga, well-being and the discovery of Corsica – for us, the most beautiful of all the islands in the world – you will live a particularly enriching sensory and human experience.

During the week you will spend with him, you will practice Yoga based on different approaches through various forms: asanas, pranayama, Yoga therapy, kriyas, philosophy, conferences, and songs… to live an unforgettable encounter.

This retreat is aimed at beginners as well as experienced practitioners.

Our purpose is to offer you a unique experience marked by excellence and simplicity: a journey where body and mind are one.

We have chosen the Saparella Reserve, one of the most extraordinary places on earth, for this fusion between Corsica and Yoga .

There, you will experience the practice of Yoga in a breath-taking paradise setting.

Total escape, full awakening of the senses and awe are guaranteed.

Welcome to our world.

2. Thematic Workshops

In Hinduism, Ganesh is the Lord of new beginnings, the God of wisdom, intelligence, education and prudence. He is the God who removes obstacles, the protector of schools and knowledge workers.

During this Hindu ritual, we invoke the energy of Ganesh who dwells within us and who, like an elephant in the forest, gathers the attributes of strength, discrimination, kindness, wisdom and devotion.

Ganesh, with his elephant head and human body, symbolically transcends the material world and directly addresses our spiritual nature.

* Please wear clean and festive clothes and bring fresh fruits, nuts or flowers; we shall offer them to Ganesh during this ritual.

We will start this workshop chanting of the mantra "Ganesha bija" followed by a discussion on Yoga Therapy and the presentation of different types of breathing techniques.

Then we shall approach the practice, adopting some Therapeutic Yoga postures, and following simple and effective breathing techniques proven to calm the nervous system down and prepare the body and mind for meditation.

During this workshop, we will approach a particular breathing practice called "Resonance Breathing", or "cardiac coherence":

In our body, resonance occurs when our heart rate (cardiac variability), blood pressure, and brain waves echo each other in a coherent pattern of signalling (hence resonance).

When we are in "cardiac resonance", amazing changes occur in our bodies: our emotional and physiological resilience increases, inflammation is reduced, cardiovascular health improves, stress is reduced, sleep improves, and the nervous system in general becomes more and more well balanced.

This workshop will allow you to experiment -or practice, for the initiated- resonance breathing to feel the “heart-brainwave” coherence.

After this workshop, you will feel the harmony between your body and mind, and you will be completely calm and relaxed, in a general feeling of peace, well-being and unity.

« One Simple Thing : A New Look at the Science of Yoga and How It Can Transform Your Life”.
Exchanges with the author & signing session.

Yoga is reputed to improve our physical and mental health, to help us become more productive at work, more caring in our relationships, and a more responsible contributor to society and to all the inhabitants of our planet. If Yoga can accomplish all of this - as most Yoga practitioners attest - how exactly does it happen?

In this lecture, Eddie Stern will discuss the Four Paths of Yoga which represent the four fundamental ways in which we interact with the world:

The Yoga of selfless action and service (Karma Yoga), the Yoga of devotion (Bhakti Yoga), the Yoga of knowledge, will and intellect (Jñāna Yoga), and the Yoga of mediation (Rāja Yoga).

Yoga is fundamentally the practice of being aware of who we deeply are.

The access we have to this inner knowledge and awareness is often confused because our mind is itself troubled by a restless flow of thoughts, desires, confusion, conflicts and regrets.

Yoga provides remedies for all these mental 'disturbances', acting through the Four Paths of Yoga (Sivananda Yoga).

There will be 3 major parts in this workshop: chanting, pranayama and the lecture.

(excursions, horse riding, kayaking, snorkelling, sailing, Fauna & Flora explorations, spectacular sites viewed from the sky, local markets...).

Your participation in our Yoga classes is an opportunity for us to show you, through a wide range of activities, all the treasures of this island of beauty, surely the most beautiful of all the islands in the world.

Therefore, we have selected activities that we know, we practice, and we supervise so that you may, in total safety and with all your senses, commune with Nature.

This natural space is unique, and its richness, authenticity, and diversity are matched only by its charm and beauty.

When you will arrive at the Saparella Reserve, we will take time with each of you to make your choice among all the activities available, in order to provide the best exclusive personalised service.
