Claire Dalloz: has been an enthusiastic yoga student since her studies in the 80s in England and a passionate yoga teacher since the 90s, when she returned to Switzerland.
Claire's teaching style is clear, purposeful, humorous and engaging. Her focus is on the correct alignment of the body so that each participant learns to live and breathe optimally. Only a body without pain finds peace of mind! Therefore, Claire guides each participant to find his/her optimal position in order to achieve personal progress.

You will stay in the newly-opened Club Mythos Corfu situated in the picturesque village of Arillas. Centrally situated and yet peaceful and quiet. The beach, cafés, bars and little shops are just a 5-minute walk away.

Claire’s teaching focuses on correct alignment in order for optimal breathing and flow of energy to take place. Each and every moment on or off the mat is an opportunity to live and breathe freely - it begins with conscious placement of the body, evening out imbalances and ultimately finding peace of mind! Claire adapts her classes to suit the needs of the participants and where necessary provides modifications of positions so that each participant is able to practice at his level of experience and deepen his experience.

The fee is € 980.– per person.

Strength vs. Flexibility

“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.

Date: 29th September 2019
Time: 9.00 – 17.00
Place: Yoga Studio Luzern, Werkhofstrasse 18
Price: Fr. 150.-

Retreat: Yoga in Cyprus

Come home to the Self

During this intense yoga week (5 hours practice per day) we will enjoy a holistic practice. In the morning session we begin in silence with a meditation and pranayama practice and then move into a dynamic Hatha Flow practice. In the evening session we sing mantras and wind body and mind down with a restorative practice.

More details:
During this week you have the opportunity to leave daily life behind and to dive deep into your yoga practice, connect to your essence, restore your energy and create a healing space within you. This connection to your essence enables you to feel a sense of freedom on all levels: physical, emotional, spiritual. It allows you to come home to the Self.

Claire offers an integrated, holistic practice that awakens consciousness on all levels. Through moments of stillness in meditation, moments of concentration in pranayama (breath work) and the precise practice of asanas (yoga poses) consciousness is awakened and transformation can take place.
