Ashtanga yoga retreat :
Breath and Bandha with Lucien Sanchez Zuber
22-29 August, 2020
Description of the retreat
Mysore Style Description –
Ashtanga yoga is traditionally taught in a “mysore style” setting with practice running 6 days per
week. Mysore style is a methodology of teaching that allows students to develop a personal
yoga practice at their own pace in a safe way. The class is a mix of self practice and private
lessons in a group setting so you have the group energy and still can work through personal
issues and challenges.
Workshops Description –
To deepen our awareness of consciousness the tool that a Yoga Asana practice gives us is
through the sensorial experience of our bodies.
We will explore how the ability to regulate our breath, to practice using the concept of Bandha,
the internal locks, as a state of being regulating our different movement patterns will create
maturity in our practice and understand how an advanced practice is more about the sensitivity
of our experience than the visual aspect or complexity of the asana.
This exploration will make evident the impact of our yoga practice on our masculine and
feminine energies, prana and apana, yin and yang, how each asana and vinyasa affects its

Lucien grew up in a family of artists and musicians around the world, he was deeply immersed in classical music and had the opportunity to learn a few languages early on. In his teens, an uncle who had travelled in India introduced him to yoga and vipassana and among these newfound practices his interest in the metaphysical led him to research of shamanism and native practices of his father’s motherland, Mexico.
When he discovered ashtanga yoga he was hooked and it became his daily sadhana. Study of yoga and meditation led him to South East Asia where he spent most of his time in India, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Bali. There, over the next few years he studied Thai massage with Pichest Boonthume, and asthanga yoga with various different teachers spending a particularly long time practicing and learning from Iain Gryzak in Bali, Eileen Hall in Sydney and Sharath Jois in Mysore both of the later whom he had the opportunity to study with and assist over the past years.
It is with great joy and pleasure that Lucien now looks to transmit any knowledge this life path has given him in the most honest and authentic way possible giving students the space to find the wisdom in themselves to improve their lives as it has slowly done for him through dedication, experience and practice. With this intention Lucien has spent the last years traveling and teaching in different places across the world such as Mexico, USA, Sri Lanka, Thailand, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Australia amongst others finally coming to settle in Paris for further university studies at Ecole 42 in 2019.
