What is prana? This Sanskrit term designates both the breath, the energy it contains and its organic manifestation. It is therefore an energy of the living, a vibration that we find all around us and within us. If the prānā is not palpable, it is possible to feel it, immersed in nature: in the mountains, in the forest or… facing the sea. Feet anchored in the sand, in front of the immensity of the Mediterranean, the yogis -fervent followers of yoga- will thus be able to experience this primary and universal energy, this fluid sometimes burning, sometimes refreshing, generating variable sensations and emotions.
From sunrise, to the sound of the gong, the experience Prānā Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat opens the field of possibilities with several courses and workshops. And this moment out of time will continue until 8 p.m. with varied courses and workshops accessible to all.
Which yoga class is right for me?
Everyone is welcome: yogis and yoginis as well as neophytes. But how do you know which course to try among the many practices offered? the prānāyāma is the discipline of the breath which harmonizes our vital energy -the famous prānā- with many exercises and breathing techniques. The Winds of Silence is an energy yoga composed of thirteen series of dynamic and meditative movements that are performed in an upright position.
the haha yoga is one of the most practiced yogas in the West: a series of gentle, precise and rhythmic postures, allowing mastery of the body and the senses. the vinyasa yoga is a more dynamic and sporty practice with a synchronized sequence. L’ashtanga yoga is both traditional and intense and the postures follow each other at a steady pace, with increasing difficulty. the yin-yoga is, on the contrary, a soft and slow practice, mixing postures and meditation. the yoga nidrahe is based on meditation with very little physical effort.
the boxing yoga is a sports practice, still confidential in France, with postures inspired by boxing sequences. L’acroyoga is also a new discipline at the crossroads of dance, yoga, gymnastics and circus with postures to be practiced in duos or trios. As its name suggests, the pilates yoga mixes yoga postures and postural gymnastics exercises based on breathing and on the placement of the Pilates method.
the kundalini yoga is sometimes considered the “original yoga” because it brings together many forms of yoga. Its practice is powerful because it acts on the circulation of vital energy – kundalini – which is activated for a better physical and mental balance. It is based on a body practice (with static and dynamic postures) and breathing (with varied and sophisticated techniques) and integrates relaxation and meditation (sung with mantra or silent).
the woman yoga also brings together several types of yoga. You can find hormonal yoga, yin postures but also facial yoga and of course relaxation, not to mention acupressure points and breathing. It aims to reconnect to femininity and hormonal rebalancing. This is also the case of the sacred feminine meditationa vibratory care of connection to the sacred space of women and inner healing.
Not forgetting all the acoustic meditation workshops: the sunrise sound meditationthe initiatory journey to the drumthe yoga of sound or even the chanting of mantras.
More than 20 yoga teachers present
To supervise the practice of yogis and yoginis, around twenty teachers from the Côte d’Azur will be present. The opportunity to discover new practices and, why not, to join the courses of some for the year. “Yoga punctuates my life and allows me on a daily basis to feel both physically and mentally, explains Karène of Happy Yogi. This regular practice allowed me to reduce my anxieties but also various physical pains. That’s why I wanted to share it and train myself in hatha yoga but also in sound therapy and different energy healing practices.”

Cécilia from Tropical Vinyasa Yoga sees yoga as “an art in movement, a dance, a meditation. Halfway between the poetry of the body and the awareness of the breath, his teaching is a gentle combination of effort, creativity and letting go..” Marc Nafilyan is a physiotherapist masseur, osteopath in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and therefore yoga teacher of the Vents du Silence.
