Do Yoga in Paris This Week!


Gratitude and Bonnes Nouvelles—A Yoga Workshop and Big Announcement

Photo: Paris Yoga

As many of you know, Paris Yoga is one of the city’s longest serving studios, offering yoga and pilates classes from its chic rue Magellan location for more than 12 years. If you’ve never been, it’s quite a beautiful space with lovely light, dressing rooms, showers (a rarity in Paris) and a massage room. Many of Paris’s most beloved teachers have passed through its doors, as have a bounty of students who continue to call it home.

This Sunday 30 June from 10h30 to 12h30, join Amanda Dates and the whole team at Paris Yoga for a special pre-grandes vacances Gratitude and Bonnes Nouvelles workshop! Summer marks the transition to a season of abundance, and there is no better way to celebrate new beginnings than in community with fellow yogis. Come for the fun, festive flow and lend your energy to Paris Yoga’s big announcement.

Reservations required. Email

Eddie + Jocelyne Stern in Paris

Casa Vinyasa from InOut Productions on Vimeo.

Two of Ashtanga’s luminaries will be in Paris next week, and if you have always wanted to study with Eddie and Jocelyn Stern but lacked the ability to travel to New York where they have their home studio, Ashtanga Yoga New York, now is your chance to stay put in Paris and have Ashtanga come to you ;-) 

Saturday 6 July and Sunday 7 July, Eddie and Jocelyne will lead a duo of classes each day -- a led Primary series in the morning, lecture with question-and-answers in the afternoon -- that will enable you to immerse yourselves in their wisdom and knowledge. The workshops will be held at Ashtanga Yoga Paris which is a luminous shala near République.

Rasa is a Sanskrit term that is often defined as “flavor” or “essence.” Arranged in a wheel, the nine rasas describe the tones and qualities of our experiences -- from wondrous to gruesome -- and help us see value where at first we might not. This spectrum of tastes helps us engage more deeply in our lives, helps us appreciate all of the diversity in the world, and perceive our surroundings not as separate from us, but connected and intrinsic to us.

“… l’occasion de découvrir des nouvelles saveurs.” —Mika de Brito

Discover new rasas by participating in Tout Ça Pour Ça, the first-ever crowdfunded yoga experience in Paris! This project will unfold on Saturday 30 June from late morning on through the afternoon with yoga; vegan, raw and organic foods; vendors of all kinds, DJs and live music. Created by yoga teacher and musician Mika de Brito and Happy Crulture’s chef Camila Prioli, this happening needs your creative juice to succeed this month and in the months to come.

Add your rasa to the mix and fund the project!

Tout Ça Pour Ça has many levels of participation, depending on your desires and funding abilities: from 15€ (access to vendors and music) to 200€ (yoga, brunch and music at the event, plus a private class with Mika,) you get to choose the potency of your own experience. There is a flavor for everyone, from seasoned yogis to raw food newbies to music aficionados. If past performance is an indicator of future success (my sonic immersion in Mika’s YogaLab was, for me, one of the highlights of 2012’s Yoga Festival Paris),Tout Ça Pour Ça will be one-of-a-kind and not to be missed! And its success depends on you, so contribute and do your part to ensure this project comes to life.
