"The more you understand, the more you love; the more you love, the more you understand." Thich Nhat Hanh
We are an Argentine biotechnologist and a German psychologist trying to be the change we want to see in the world. An interesting mix of two science-based, open minds.
We met in Göttingen in 2015 when we were working on our PhD´s. Since then we have noticed how much we have in common and how complementary our skills are.
We are convinced that our society needs more empathy and compassion. Our studio is a place where you can find these qualities, but also a place where you can equip yourself with the tools you need to develop them in yourself.
About the studio..
Be Light is located in the Nikolaistraße, right in the heart of Leipzig.
We are a holistic Yoga studio. That means we not only work around the asana practice from different styles and perspectives (Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, etc.) but also around other aspects of the practice that are also Yoga.
We want to help you understand how the mind works and how you can work with it, together to keep your physical self aligned with your mental self. Mindfulness and Meditation are great tools to help you exactly with that.
Thai Massage is a practice deeply connected to Yoga, where the mat is not only occupied by me and my needs, but also by another human. In this practice we are invited to exercise all values put at service not only as a giver but also as a receiver. We learn directly about compassion, empathy, equanimity and we also learn to let go and allow someone else to bring comfort and relaxation.
A playful practice is a tool of evolution to practice and rehearse different behaviours in society. Animals play, humans play.. at least at the beginning. But at some point we stop, consumed in our daily routines. Acroyoga reminds you of the human quality of play. It's acrobatics observed under the lens of Yoga, which keeps it healthy for the body and rooted for the mind.
