Testimonial: “I spent a few April days at Agni. I received everything I needed and much more at her home.
Beautiful friendly, fragrant house and lemons. And a more beautiful area. I practiced yoga, ate a delicious home-made vegan food, I lay in a tub of oils and gave myself to massages and contemplation.
In the home of Agni, I found shelter for my body, my soul and something difficult to name. Inspirational place. I’m gonna return there for sure” Paweł Tomaszewski
Agni Way Yoga Shala in Lagos has pleasure to welcome you for Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga weekend workshop with a couple of an extraordinairy teachers:
*Petri Räisänen and Wambui Njuguna-Räisänen*
Petri started practicing Ashtanga yoga in 1989 and teaching in 1991. He is co-owner and director of Ashtanga Yoga Helsinki, Finland, which he found with his friend and colleague, Juva Javanainen, in 1997. K Pattabhi Jois blessed the school to teach the traditional Astanga Yoga method. For the last 10 years he has been teaching together with his wife Wambui Njuguna-Räisänen.
Petri focuses on integrating healing and therapy with yoga, meeting student’s individual needs and guiding their progress. Petri’s yoga pose adjustments are gentle, effective, therapeutic and, according to some, almost magical, and originate (besides his own practice and teaching) from his past work as a traditional Finnish folk healer and naturopath. His friendly, relaxed behaviour and intuitive perception give an open, energetic and meditative atmosphere to his classes. Read more: https://www.petriandwambui.com/petri/
Wambui has been an Ashtanga yoga teacher and practitioner for nearly a decade and was authorized to teach the Primary Series by R. Sharath Jois in 2016.
She began teaching Ashtanga yoga in 2011 at the Ashtanga Yoga School of Helsinki and leads regular workshops in Finland and Sweden. In addition, she co-teaches on workshops and retreats with senior Ashtanga yoga teacher, Petri Räisänen, who is also her husband.

Have you ever asked yourself if there is a way to breathe deeper, more fully and more connected? What would happen, if you could inhale more oxygen and prana with every breath, every day, every moment?
Find out how it feels to be truly alive in this Introduction Workshop Transformational Breathing of Breath∞Sound by Daniela and Hanuman.
Come and join Breath∞Sound for a truly transformational breathwork session. Breathwork is a dynamic body-mind practice of conscious connected breathing that provides the groundwork for inner transformation and for a deeper connection to your self. Just one session clears deep inner tensions, reduces anxiety and increases life enjoyment.
It simply enables you to run more life force through your system once the contraction has gone.
Please bring a water bottle, comfortable clothing and a towel to the session. Please keep any meals LIGHT before the session.
Energy exchange: 35.- euro
group max 8 Participants
Please reserve your place asap, as spaces are limited, through website/phone/email :
For FAQs please read the detailed info below or check out: https://www.breathandsound.org/breathwork-1
Transformational Breath is a self-empowering healing process that creates great transformation in one’s life. This dynamically powerful technique connects the inhalation and the exhalation of the breath cycle to create a high vibrational energy force in the body. Transformational Breath uses specific bodywork (bodymapping) and vocal toning to help release energy blocks and create more space in the body. The three levels of Transformational Breath allow us to breathe better, have more energy, feel more peaceful and loving, and ultimately attain higher levels of consciousness.
What to expect:
In this 3 hour workshop we will tune in as a group what brought you to this session and what wants to be transformed today. After explaining you about the breathing technique (inspired by Transformational Breath®) we will set our intentions individually. The breathwork session itself lasts 1,5 hours and is guided by music and live sound. After the session we will have an integrative sharing circle. Best not to have important appointments right after a session. Enjoy, relax and let your body integrate this new vibrational state!
!!Please bring an intention, a water bottle, comfortable, loose clothing and a small towel to support your head. Mats, blankets and couchons are provided. No substantial food 2 hours before the session.
READ MORE ABOUT TRANSFORMATIONAL BREATH:
There are three distinct levels of Transformational Breath. The first (physical) level has to do with opening and clearing restricted breathing patterns, or basically learning how to breathe more effectively and easily. Most people only get a small percentage of air capacity due to closed and restricted breathing patterns. In transformational breathing, we know that the amount of air we can bring into the body is directly related to the amount of good we can accept in life. As we open and expand our breathing, not only do we have more energy and support for the body’s natural healing abilities, we greatly improve our capacity to receive and experience more good. To the degree that the breath is open and flowing, we are in the flow of life. Easterners have known for thousands of years that the life force’s primary means of access into the body is through our breathing.
The second (emotional) level of this breathwork deals with clearing some of the major reasons why we shut down our breathing to begin with. This second level is effective with healing traumas and negativity in the subconscious mind. This includes old unexpressed emotions sometimes called repressions: negative beliefs, old tapes and past memories, all of which are stored on a cellular level. One of the primary ways to keep them “stuffed” in the subconscious is to shut down and control our breathing. We can reverse this by breathing into the closed places and letting go where we hold onto the breath. With this process, we actually bring up the old emotions, thoughts and memories, and by continuing to breathe into them, integrate these repressions into a higher energy form, thereby creating permanent resolution of these suppressed energies.
Once the lower subconscious begins to open and clear, it creates an opening to the higher subconscious, which is the level of soul or our spiritual awareness. This enables us to utilize the third level of Transformational Breath, which is consciously connecting with our higher aspects of conscious reality. Sometimes in level three, people actually have mystical experiences as they become aware of other dimensions and higher aspects of self. All three levels of transformational breathing happen in every session, although how much time we spend in each level will vary depending on our individual specific needs. One thing is for certain: every time we do a transformational breathing session, we become lighter and clearer, and we permanently raise our vibrational frequency.
About the facilitators Breath∞Sound (www.breathandsound.org):
Daniela and Hanuman have been deeply involved in inner growth work over the past 15 years. Their personal path of healing started with a breathwork session. Since that first, profound experience they both fell in love with the undenying wisdom of the body. They felt called to study Transformational Breath® and started guiding groups in the Netherlands. In the following 10 years they intensively engaged with different body-related therapies like Rebalancing bodywork®, tantric teachings and vocal bodywork. Simultaneously they immersed themselves in the mysterious teachings of many different medicine plants and their spiritual lessons.
Let me introduce me: I am Suzanne a trained therapist in Systemic and family constellations and also a ‘Nerti’ practitioner (fears and phobias).
I am so happy to facilitate this group, for the second time in Agni Way’s yoga center. It’s a great opportunity. It will be a small group so that you will be able to open yourself. And the yoga center is beautiful.
If you want to discover more about family constellations watch the video below:
What does being a representative mean?
A person is asked what their issue or intention is and a few questions about any unusual events in their family. (This is for the person who is doing his constellation).
The facilitator then suggests which family members may need to be set up initially and asks the client to choose people from the group to represent these family members (with their agreement). The client is asked to take each representative by the shoulders and to move them intuitively to where they need to be in the space in the middle of the group.
Representatives are then asked to wait until they begin to feel sensations in their body or a desire to move. After a while the facilitator moves around the constellation asking what they are experiencing in their bodies (How do you feel as ?).
Sometimes representatives are asked to remain silent and simply to follow their movements of their body.
It’s amazing and quite unbelievable what then happens. It is as if these representatives actually become the people they are representing and many times their reporting has been borne out as extremely accurate by the person whose family is being set up.
Some people refer to this as “movements of the soul” (BERT HELLLINGER).
And it’s possible if you wait to feel the shift from what should be referred to.
So for this afternoon together. After welcoming and presentation, we will do a small meditation to be grounded.
And then I will facilitate three constellations and ask the others (with their consent) to represent members of family or situations.
To be a representative is also very rich and always gives you something to take away with you. And making a constellation of your current family or family of origin (if you are ready to do it) gives you more clarity and understanding about the situation. And brings more balance and harmony.
Prices: 25 euros to be a representative
40 euros if you are doing your own constellation.

The process is supported by life meditative music ending with a short meditation and discussion time.

Hi, I’m Agni. Founder of Agni Way Yoga Shala in Lagos. Im Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga daily practitioner and teacher. I love to dance. My main interest is Contact Improvisation. I have completed a year-long course of contact improvisation in Berlin and many workshops with world-renowned teachers who opened my eyes to other systems of deep body work (Body Mind Centering, Axis Syllabus, Feldenkrais). Through those experiences, I understood how fundamental physical touch is. This inspired me to create a unique signature ‘Agni Touch’ massage treatments. My motto is “To be soft and strong, and just let it flow”.

~ The Art of Making Love: Being Present ~
A Tantric workshop by Pantra (Kjell Doggen & Madelief de Graaf).
✻✻SIGN UP THROUGH E-MAIL✻✻
Pantra will be back in the Algarves for a week and they are looking forward to facilitating this workshop at Agni Way in Lagos. Invite your friends, be-loved, lovers, family and everyone else who is interested in taking a step into making LOVE in and with life ♥.
The focus of this workshop is BEING PRESENT. When we are able to be present with attention, deep within our own core, in the now, we are able to experience love making in everything we do. Making Love is often known and referred to as a sexual activity, but this workshop invites you to experiencing love making in connection with yourself, (distant) connection with another, to a simple activity as walking, seeing, or random daily activities. Even doing the dishes could be an experience of Making Love.
During this evening, you will invite, activate and work with sensual energy. When we learn how to let life and sensual energy flow freely from within our core (2nd chakra), we open up the possibilities to experiencing a boost in creativity, having more focus and power to tie loose ends of projects, communicating deeper in an authentic way and opening up even deeper to our own desires, our own passions and experiences in physical and emotional contact with ourselves or another. To experience and enjoy life fully in all its aspects.
This workshop will contain bodywork, touch, dance, movement, meditation, music, massage and creation. You are the one responsible for your own boundaries, for opening up to being touched (both physically, mentally and energetically) by others. We will work with sensual energy, but we do not allow sexual activities during the workshop. Before we start the workshop, we will create a safe space within a circle existing out of all the participants of the workshop, to set clear intentions and respect each individual.
