Ateliers découvertes " Méditation "

 Les dimanches: 6 septembre - 1 novembre -
   29 novembre 2015 (9h30-12h00)

 Animés par Philippe Dossios (only French)  

L'objectif est de vous amener à ressentir, dès le début de la pratique, les effets positifs de la méditation en vous enseignant des techniques qui ont fait leurs preuves au cours des siècles.

Après avoir mis au point une technique de relaxation pour préparer les élèves à l’examen du permis de conduire par stage dès les années 1975, Philippe Dossios, devenu par la suite naturopathe, praticien en PNL et en Neuro-Sémantique, n’a cessé depuis cette époque d’être passionné par l’équilibre du corps et de l’esprit. Il s’est formé à différentes techniques de relaxation, sophrologie, yoga nidra, puis à la méditation qu’il pratique depuis 35 ans.

Les recherches de Philippe Dossios l’ont mené à rencontrer des Maîtres de la tradition indienne, (Sri Chinmoy de l’Ashram de Sri Aurobindo) (Ranjit Maharaj de Bombay, condisciple de Nisagadatta Maharaj) du Zen (Taisen Deshimaru) et du bouddhisme tibétain (Gendun Rinpoche).

Special four-week workshop with Anne-Françoise Potterat

A creative emotional journey 
from fear to love

Thursdays, 8, 15, 22, 29 October (19h30 to 21h00) 

In this deep and playful 4-week series, using the emotional kaleidoscopic mandalas, we will witness emotions as guiding stars to the True Being within. We will tap into our Creative Inner Star through inspired movement and supported creativity (drawing and writing in colors). After each class, every one will take home their own empowering mandala. 

This class is for everyone who desires to be love, to give voice to their inner artist, to get answers and/or to receive a guiding vision. 

Price: Art materials are provided for this workshop series so there is a slight extra charge.

  • With a yoga pass = 4 class passes plus 44 CHF extra. 
  • Without the yoga pass = CHF 170. 
  • One session with yoga pass = 1 class + CHF 20
  • One session without yoga pass = CHF 55.


As this is a deepening and profound evolutionary process, it is best to attend the four sessions.

Special Guest Teacher: Mary Bruce

Thursday 24th September, 19h15-21h00

Recently at the Geneva Yoga Music Festival, Mary has kindly agreed to teach a special class at Elaneha. This class will be in English, and will include slow vinyasa to break up density and tension and find freedom in the body, pranayama to soothe the mind culminating in deep nidra rest and meditation on the light within the heart.

With a depth of knowledge in the energetics of tantra hatha (ParaYoga® lineage) along with biomechanical principles of alignment, Mary offers students a supreme way to practice. Practicing since 1995 and teaching since 1997, her teaching includes all the elements of a meaningful and balanced practice: attention to detail (alignment), awareness of breath (pranayama), connection with divine source (bhavana), intelligent sequencing (vinyasa krama), as well as, Ayurveda, visualization, meditation, mantra and more.  Mary is dedicated to creating sacred space where by practicing these techniques, our essential and best self can unfold and flourish.

Price: Two classes on your yoga pass, or CHF 65 for non-members.
