Vinyasa Yin Yang & Live Sitar

A dance between Shiva and Shakti

Paco Rodriguez returns on Sunday 15 October to Athens and Neda Yoga Shala and brings us his wonderful sitar melodies! A dedicated Bhakti Yogi, we welcome him straight from India, his base and inspiration for many years. Emiliana Tsoukala will join him and will guide us in a yoga practice. In this class we will move from dynamic flow to stillness through vinyasa practice and the melodies of Paco Rodriguez.

At the heart of existence, where the forces between creation and transformation meet, a dance is created between Shakti and Shiva. The power of Shakti brings us vital energy, movement, flow and limitless creation. Shiva, stoic and strong brings quietness, stability, meditation.

The class will be followed by a short Kirtan with Paco.

Paco Rodriguez
Paco has been a professional musician since his teenage years. He started learning Sitar in 1994 in Varanasi (India), the same year he was initiated into Bhakti yoga and never stopped practicing since. During the nineties he passed a lot of time with sadhus (wandering monks) in between Varanasi and the Himalayas, practicing yoga and learning about Vedanta and Hindu mythology. In 1995 he sat his first Vipassana meditation retreat and since insight meditation is part of his daily routine.

Back in France, he lived 9 years in the French Pyrenees, in a buddhist meditation commune, Tapovan.Nowadays Paco performs more than 100 concerts a year in India and in Europe with two projects Sitarsonic and Kundalini Airport, he leads Kirtan in various yoga centers in Goa and Europe and also provides soundscaping and soundbathing for yoga class or guided relaxation sessions. Paco is 56 years old and is currently living between India, France and Greece.

Emiliana Tsoukala
Emiliana got in touch with yoga in 2009, alongside with dancing. The reason why yoga finally won her heart, and she chose to follow it, is the respect with which it treats the body, the connection of breath and movement, the simplicity and depth involved in it, as opposed to the Western way of approaching exercise. Later, she realized that yoga is a way of life, a philosophy that has deeply studied human nature and offers answers to many human questions.

Her desire to explore the path of yoga in greater depth and specifically her love for the flow of Vinyasa, led her to attend the 200h RYT training program of EYS with the teacher Panos Katsandris. She then trained in Prenatal Yoga and is currently completing her 500h training. She continues to be interested in continuing education in yoga and therefore attends various seminars on it. At the same time, she has been trained in Drama therapy, a method of psychotherapy with art as a tool, and through the marriage of these two sciences, she dreams to offer a holistic way of treatment, thus contributing to person’s search for self-awareness and self-healing.
