As Sandrine from CasaYoga says, “Take advantage of the long weekend of the 11th of November, often gray and a bit sad, to put more yoga, more well-being and heat into your life!”

Profitez du long weekend du 11 novembre, souvent gris et un peu triste, pour mettre plus de yoga, de bien-être et de chaleur dans votre vie!

We couldn’t agree more. The long Armistice weekend (9-11 November, Veterans Day in the United States) is the perfect moment to take your yoga deeper, study with a new teacher or experience a different style. With the time change, it certainly feels as though Paris has entered its dark period, however as yogis, we know how to cultivate the brightness inside. To quote one of my favorite teachers, Julie Dohrman, why not learn to see beauty in the darkness as “turning inwards to hear the silence of being is where the light of insight often appears.” 

Whether you’re new to yoga or a veteran (sorry, I had to!) there’s something for every level!
