Yoga-Workshop with Natalia Knuchel to Live Music by Pascal Gamboni
“The only way to soften the hardness of the ground
is to soften your movement –
the only way to soften the harshness of life
is to soften yourself.”
Throughout our lives, our species moves on and above the ground.
Unlike air or water creatures, the ground on which we stand, walk, lie and also practice asanas is our constant companion – due to the principles of gravity.
This workshop is an opportunity to curiously examine our connection to gravity and to pay increased attention to the physical contact between our bodies and the earth.
We will let the ground carry us and explore our relationship to the solid matter beneath us, both in specific yoga postures and in the transition from one asana to the next.
We will find moments of balance by consciously shifting weight and holding tension, then regaining ground with inner and outer freedom.
On and off the mat we will flow through strengthening asana sequences, always trying to maintain lightness in body and mind.
In the last part of the workshop we will enjoy gravity in restorative postures and let the practice sink in.
The Singer-songwriter Pascal Gamboni from Grisons will support us live with his guitar and his warm, energetic voice.
Natalia Knuchel and Pascal Gamboni will lead this workshop on Saturday, November 25, 2023 from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm at AIRYOGA, Fabrikstrasse 10 in 8005 Zurich.Book online here

The workshop is suitable for practitioners of all levels.
The participants experience the principle of cause and effect in a very concrete way: the softer we slide our body into the mat, the more supple the floor feels. This experience can be directly transferred to everyday situations: the more relaxed and even-tempered we accept external events, the more open and flexible our environment will react to them.
Natalia teaches in German and English.
The rate is CHF 90.- per session, or CHF 160.- for both sessions.
The number of participants is limited.
