Yoga camp in Baile Herculane/Transylvanian Alps

On the way to Herculane or how to travel by train in Romania for half the fare of a second class ticket and be at ease in first class… Thanks to Iringo; she never buys a train ticket but takes her friends with her and hypnotizes the controller….

girls are girls and fashion magazines are everywhere.... Simona, top shaktie, top yogie, great friend...

meditation: Raluca relaxed, Iringo focused…

Mira performing Trikonasana (triangle pose), conferring psychic balance, courage, will-power, self confidence; qualities related to Manipura Chakra….

Simona in Garudasana, a posture on Ajna Chakra (the third eye)...


Anca, she could be doing trataka (staring at some external object as a way of developing concentration) but she is actually trying to keep her blue eyes open in the strong light....


Tarot cards and divination, first lesson for Raluca who is always searching for something new….


afternoon meditation...

meditation in a yang spirale, a few thousands participants.....


photo escapade with Victoria....

from my window


Simona and Cristina just coming back from their yoga class and searching for a song in the Bhagavad Gîtâ


Iringo between two yoga techniques, always very focused and so serious while performing asanas that I do not dare to disturb her.....well, she heard the camera's click and smiled......


Elena with a large print of Grieg, now on Livia's wall....

Cristina


Cristina, probably my sister from another life and a very dear friend in this one...we both are in the same yoga school and we even live in the same ashram...that is to say in a big family of about 25...she was playing in the courtyard with the water hose last july when I remembered that it was her birthday... I interrupted the game to photograph her... it is said that we are the closest to our self on this day...this must be why she seems so centered...

Arthur





Arthur is always smiling... could be from his intense yoga practice... 8 hrs a day 365 days no matter what happens...
5 days / week he does 10 hrs of karma yoga...voluntary work mostly in construction building for the yoga school.
I admire his courage and dedication to spiritual evolution... he told me stories from his time as an israeli officer on the egyptian and palestinian borders but you would have to meet him to hear them.....
