In the initial week, you'll delve into 8 essential techniques aimed at establishing your personal yoga practice. Gain insights into the "where you look is where you go" principle, understanding how intention setting plays a pivotal role. We'll dive deep into poses and breathing exercises to tailor your practice according to your unique needs and time constraints. This module empowers you to craft an effective practice even in just 20 minutes. By the end of this week, you'll possess the confidence and autonomy to practice yoga whenever and wherever you want.
During the second week, you'll continue to strengthen your self-practice. You'll become skilled at creating your own flow and refining your practice. This week is all about developing autonomy in your practice and embracing the diversity of teachings available to you.
During the third week, we delve into the scientific foundation of your unique energy centers and aim to demystify the Chakra studies. You'll explore how energy is organic, biological, physiological, and chemical, and how it flows in and through your body in ways that are deeply personal and felt only by you. This week, you'll receive a workbook to assess and journal about your inner space, fostering increased self-awareness and providing clarity. You'll be guided on how to look at, sit with, and embrace what's happening in your inner world with understanding and compassion. This will naturally boost your self-confidence and give clarity on what is yours to own, nourish, keep, share, and let go of.
By now, you'll have gained enough self-confidence to navigate your yoga practice with ease, almost as if you could do it with your eyes closed in reverse. You'll feel entirely at home with the various yoga sequences you’ve learned in the previous weeks.
In these weeks, the emphasis is on deepening your personal practice by fostering a sense of clarity, compassion, and self-assuredness as you explore and navigate your individual energy centers.
In the sixth week, we dive into the profound practice of meditation as a source of energy for the soul. The body can be nourished through various sources such as food, water, air, and sleep, you will experience how meditation is the nourishment for the soul. In the Yoga Sutras, there's mention of one single posture: the Padmasana, the pose of sitting still in meditation. However, in today's noisy and distracting world, achieving stillness can be a challenge. This week, you'll explore how all the tools and resources in yoga serve to guide you back to your natural state, where meditation naturally unfolds.
We'll focus on feeding the brain with knowledge, energizing the body through movement, calming the mind with breathing, and soothing emotions with music to reach a state of complete stillness. This serene, silent space is where intuition, creativity, and your most precious inner qualities reside. You'll be provided with a series of meditation tools tailored to address various needs, whether that involves deepening your rest or enhancing your creativity.
Meet the teacher
Fantine Tho, a Brazilian singer, songwriter, and yoga teacher, shot to fame in 2002 after winning Popstars and joining the successful girl group Rouge in Brazil, selling millions of record copies. Eventually, a back injury and a realization about the downsides of fame ("If this is fame, I don't want it") led her to yoga. Once she opened herself up to yoga, her life took a turn, making her feel better and more alive than ever. Now, as a yoga teacher, Fantine passionately shares the wisdom and techniques that transformed her life. And for those who know Fantine, you know she brings both experience and genuine love to the practice. Not to forget a whole lot of fun.

It's something we’ve anticipated for a considerable time, and it’s something we (Studio Bondi’s co-founder Els and studio manager Anna) want to join ourselves. Not only to improve our yoga skills, but also to start a self practice at home, even if it's just 5 minutes. Also we’re very interested in everything that makes yoga so rich, like the energy system (chakras), breathing techniques, and meditation. And Fantine is just a brilliant teacher, it’s exciting to host this training together.
