Breathing and Mindfulness with Fabio Andrico

Breathing and Mindfulness:
Breathe As You Are, Be As You Are

For everyone.
Breathing well is vitally important to all of us—it is connected to and can shape your whole existence. But the breath often finds its own, unnatural rhythm without us even knowing it. Returning to free-flowing, complete breathing infuses the body with calm strength and invigorates the mind with the clarity of awareness.
Join seasoned yoga teacher and breath expert Fabio Andrico and learn to recover your natural way of breathing. This program explores

  • Postural habits that constrict the breath
  • How natural alignment and rhythm in your breathing helps you let go of unnecessary physical and psychological tension
  • Passive and active breathing exercises
  • Ways to maintain presence and awareness of breath during yoga and everyday movement
  • Dance and sound to bring balance in body, breath, and mind.

Return home with tools that allow your breathing to become the foundation for your growth and well-being.

Yantra Yoga from a Chair

Yantra Yoga On A Chair is of enormous benefit both to those with physical limitations, as well as those who live busy but sedentary lifestyles.
Participants will coordinate breathing techniques with movements, while sitting in a chair, to gain flexibility and find a renewed sense of well-being in their daily lives.

Fabio Andrico and Laura Evangelisti have worked together and, with Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s advice, found an easy and accessible solution that not only allows people to experience the various types of breathing, but maintains the correct sequence and rhythm, which is also crucial in the practice of Yantra.

Official Announcement from the Namkhai Family

Dear friends,

Tonight, Thursday 27 September 2018, at 9 pm our beloved Master left this earthly existence in a serene and peaceful way, at his residence, Gadeling, Merigar.

We would like to thank all of you for the affection you have shown to everyone, unconditionally.

In this period of profound reflection, we kindly ask you to continue to respect the period of mourning for Rinpoche’s transition. According to tradition, when great masters such as Chögyal Namkhai Norbu pass away, there is a three year period of mourning and reflection.  As a family we kindly ask you to respect one year.

The period of mourning we are observing is inward rather than outward; it means we interiorize and carry Rinpoche forever in our hearts while we commit ourselves to preserving and protecting our memories of Him. In this regard, we kindly ask you to refrain from disseminating and posting unofficial photos, comments, and biographies (the only one authorized is the one used for the Nobel Peace Prize) as a show of respect for Rinpoche and His family.  Commemorations in Rinpoche’s honor will be published in advance on the official channels.

In closing, we remind you that the image and memory of Rinpoche are a heritage for humanity and, as such, should be respected and preserved in their entirety for the benefit of future generations.

The Namkhai family
