Vana Yoga

Photo Gallery

Yoga workshops on the road, a continuous search through breath and movement.

The practice I propose varies from dynamic flow sessions to a more traditional hatha, altogether inspired from the disciplined Astanga Vinyasa system.

“Yoga” means “union” in old Sanskrit. Rather than putting different schools and styles in boxes, I myself enjoy to explore the great diversity that today’s yoga offers, blending and merging teachings.

Taking one step on the mat brings you one step closer to yourself, a constant journey towards transformation.

VANA-FOREST, YOGA-UNION

About

Born in a Franco-British family, Colin always has been eager to learn, explore and to seek for further understandings. He grew up practicing aikido, archery and XIII th century sword fighting techniques which soon leaded him towards meditation through movement.

In the early years of his nomadic life, he left for Asia. Having met Shintoism in Japan, he moved to Thailand, traveling from monastery to monastery, living amongst monks, which brought him to a very practical way of integrating meditation on a daily basis and somehow always connected to Nature.

Later in Croatia, Yoga was introduced to him by a fellow traveler from Iceland. From that time, Colin started to build his self-practice, continuously learning from teacher to teacher. While practicing and studying some of the ancient Yoga scriptures in India, he met Mandi & Mushky (YogaVerita) and completed a TTC under their instruction. Soon after that, he was guided to the very traditional Astanga Vinyasa system, today foundation of his daily practice.

Colin truly believes a good instructor stays a forever student and that constant, disciplined and conscious practice is the key to a deeper understanding of self, a journey towards inner peace and happiness. His time being splitted between harvesting medicinal herbs in the wild and Yoga, he is used to set his mat wherever the day takes him, practicing in the middle of forests and mountains, jungles and river banks but also in any place providing shelter and a flat floor, like an abandoned tower or a wooden tractor’s trailer. Still on the road, Colin teaches workshops on his way in a continuous search to experience this never-ending change that Life offers.
