Thanks for supporting our fun community class with Charlotte last Saturday. This month Roberta will be guiding our practice on Saturday 29 October. Roberta is the newest teacher at Lotus but has over 20 years of teaching experience in the USA and around the world. Her classes are thoughtful and inspiring and guide you quietly toward expanding your potential. Please join us and meet Roberta if you have not already done so. Community classes are free of charge, though any donation to our collection for local community projects is most welcome.

When: Saturday 29 October | 09:00-10:30

Cost: Free of charge/by donation
Zen Meditation

The studio was as full as it has ever been for the talk by Dae Bong Zen Master in September. His observations gave us a view of an awakened person and will hopefully give us even more reason to practice so that we can wake up to our true nature and help the world. Kevin is currently away so our practice at the studio will resume on Tuesday 11 October. Hope to see you then!

Discovering the Hidden Secrets Underneath the Asana Practice | Workshop with Viktor van der Kleij | Sat 8-Sun 9 October

We are delighted to welcome Viktor van der Kleij back to Lotus Studio. Viktor will be with us for 2 morning sessions on this visit. In his workshops Viktor interweaves a thorough understanding of asana with a profound knowledge of yoga philosophy and offers clear guidance, humbly sharing his own wide experience and adding a light sense of fun.

Viktor is trained in the Classical Yoga tradition as instructed by Donna Holleman (and various other Iyengar and Ashtanga teachers). Over the years his teachings have become a unique combination of many different techniques and mystical traditions, from Hatha and Tantra to Raja and Bhakti Yoga. His main interest is helping students to deepen their practice, giving pointers to reveal the hidden secrets buried beneath the asana practice. He is deeply inspired by Advaita-vedanta and Zen and enjoys the crazy wisdom of the Sufi masters. Viktor regularly teaches retreats in Europe, India and various parts of Southern Africa.

When : Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 October | 09:00-13:00

Cost: R300 per day or R550 for both sessions | It is highly recommended that you attend both days in order to benefit from the layering of lessons

Creative Flow | Body Mapping & Dancing the Map | Fridays 14 & 21 October
Like nature, the body’s wisdom & intelligence is cyclical, intuitive, instinctive and holographic, encompassing the spectrum of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical realms: a microcosm of the macrocosm. Creative flow* explores the body as a mirror & manifestation of consciousness. clearing and transforming consciousness, in time, allows a full descent of light in and through the body. The gifts of enlightened embodiment include empowerment, fulfilment, expanded creativity, self-healing, grace, huge joy and bliss. An enriching dimension to support healers, therapists, dancers, yogis, artists and anyone wishing to access the healing medicine of the soul, and claim wholehearted being. Through shamanic journeying, self-enquiry, creative expression & sacred ceremony, our body maps guide us, to the divine essence within.

When: Body Mapping | Friday 14 October | 17:30-21:30 Dancing the Map | Friday 21 October | 18:30-20:30

Cost: Body mapping R250 | Dancing the Map R100 | R300 for both Fridays (recommended)
