susanna workshop oct 2024.png

an unforgettable autumn

Our path of studying the practice continues with Susanna Finocchi, guest of Yoga Shala Perugia since 2020 and authorized second level teacher by our master SharathJi Jois of Mysore. By putting into practice dedication, devotion, discipline and determination, we deepen with stability and lightness the work of knowledge of the practice following the parampara (lineage). This is an event awaited by many Ashtangis throughout Italy and which we have the honor of proposing in our Shala, a place where we have brought the Indian tradition directly from Mysore. We continue incessantly and confidently also thanks to the collaboration with this splendid woman and teacher capable of always creating a serene and joyful climate around her in which to practice, study, get to know each other, challenge each other, trust. Thanks to his energy and great experience we will be guided in a nourishing weekend for the body, mind and soul.

what we do explained with the right words

The three Mysore Style practices will be accompanied by two theoretical and practical insights and by chanting and philosophy, one of the passion subjects that Susanna has explored in her studies.

- Mysore Style -

Individual practice supported by the energy of the group. Susanna will support each individual practitioner in his or her personal sadhana (practice) with indications and actions useful for getting more in touch and in tune with one's own breathing, so that the practice of asanas becomes increasingly a peaceful and easy tool towards self-awareness.

- Chanting -

It is the traditional form of meditation and knowledge transmission in India. The sacred verses, the alphabet, the mantras are repeated after listening to them from the teacher who pronounces them correctly, the system is today handed down by scholars and Brahmins.

- Philosophy -

Yoga comes from India and has its roots in its cultural matrix, delving into its traditions, philosophical and religious systems allows us to understand that the form we practice is a part of a whole that takes on meaning when whole.

Where we are and how to get there

The workshop is held in our Shala, the address is via della Tintoria 8, Perugia. We are on the ground floor in a quiet residential area, nearby there is a bar, supermarket and convenient parking.
Perugia is a particular medieval city all up and down, the ideal way to reach it remains the car even if the historic center is quite well connected to the railway station by the Minimetrò. The areas closest to the Shala are the neighborhoods of Madonna Alta, S.Marco, Montegrillo.

The Shala is in the S.Lucia district, immediately above the stadium area and Piazzale Umbria Jazz, therefore reachable from the historic center via the Minimetrò and then a walk of approximately 15 minutes (3 km).

Here are the AirBnB links for some accommodation in the city. We advise you to always check the distance from the Shala and the travel methods on the map. If you have any doubts, we are available to advise you.

PS: given the bad experiences of some students, we strongly advise against the Hotel Europa!
