AUTHENTIC TEACHINGS

Daily Yoga & Meditation Classes

We start our day with mantra chant. We chant Om Namah Shivaya - it is one of the oldest and most powerful mantras with numerous benefits.

 

It brings us a sense of peace and joy, and creates mental clarity, tempers our ego, aggression and eases stress. It helps us attract positive energy and protects us from negative energies.

 

It contains profound subtlety in its 5 syllables and is commonly known as Panchakshara Mantra = 'five syllable mantra'. The significance of the number 5 has been linked to the five elements: - Na represents the earth element - ma water - si fire - va air and ya ether. By rising the vibration and energy from the grossest element (earth) to the subtlest (ether), we also activate and purify the chakras.

 

After mantra meditation, we practice yoga. It is mostly traditional hatha yoga, but occasionally we also incorporate elements of ashtanga vinyasa for a more dynamic flow. We finish our morning practice with pranayama breathing techniques.

SOME NICE WORDS FROM OUR GUESTS

In Maison Lucante I found the perfect balance between summer vacation (in September…!) and serious Yoga practice… between inspiring discussions at diner and inner retreat. Not to forget about the amazing hosts and the delicious food. Stars: 5/5, plus a big ♡.

I’ll come back, Lumbarda!
