Yoga with Magdi at La Petite Guyonnière
Namaste and welcome! A space dedicated to yoga, meditation, yoga retreats, and all things related to unveiling the light within.
As well as scheduled classes, Magdi also holds 1-day yoga workshops, and 7-day yoga retreats (residential), within the beautiful gardens, and poolside, at La Petite Guyonnìere. If the weather is less than kind there is also an indoor yoga studio.
Magdi is a Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher, mainly instructing in English and French. However, she can answer your questions in Hungarian, German, Spanish, and Romanian. Currently, her yoga classes take place in and around Apremont and Challans in the Vendée, in France.
Depending on the class and the intentions, she balances and rounds out the sessions by starting with meditation, usually, breath awareness, or with Pranayama, followed by the postures called asanas and finishing in Savasana with a deep relaxation or Yoga Nidra. Classes that include postures/asanas, are usually 75 minutes long. Meditation and Yoga Nidra classes tend to be shorter than that.
In 2017, I became a multi-style yoga teacher (Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga along with Vinyasa Flow) in Goa, India. At the time, the focus of my own practice was Yogasana along with Pranayama centered around Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, which I started 4 years before.
In 2018, I extended my yoga education with an additional first-level teacher training course in Costa Rica focused on self-healing and the Higher Self, and with Yin Yoga relating to the 5-phases theory (5 elements) and their meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine, in the Netherlands.
2019 brought me further opportunities to follow an additional Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra training in Goa, as well as an immersive Ayurveda and its 5-elements (one-to-one) training at a Panchakarma Institute in Kerala, Southern India.
Hatha flow, Pranayama, Yin Yoga, meditation, and Yoga Nidra have been the main focus in my classes, with an ever-increasing attention on meditation and self-inquiry.
