Yoga

 

B.K.S. Iyengar, one of the most influential yoga masters of our times, explained what yoga is the following way:

 “The primary aim of yoga is to restore the mind to simplicity and peace, to free it from confusion and distress. This sense of calm comes from the practice of asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing). Unlike other forms of exercise which strain muscles and bones, yoga gently rejuvenates the body. By restoring the body, yoga frees the mind from the negative feelings caused by the fast pace of modern life. The practice of yoga fills up the reservoirs of hope and optimism within you.”   B.K.S. Iyengar

The more we practice the faster this reservoir is filling and we experience hope, optimism, strength, emotional balance, freedom not just at the end of a balanced yoga practice, but slowly also in our day-to-day life.

 

What to expect in my sessions:

Asana

invite flexibility and strength into our body and mind. A regular asana the practice helps to ease discomfort related to back problems, poor posture and poor digestion. Furthermore the nervous system relaxes, stress levels are reduced, which usually results in a good night sleep and higher energy levels.

Pranayama

extending our cosmic life force, or vital energy. On a practical level there are different breathing techniques available, which help to calm our mind, help us to develop focus and clarity. Pranayama also  purifies the subtler layers of our body.

Meditation

“Meditation is when we are becoming one with the object of our concentration” Patanjali III.3. Many different techniques exist to help us to deepen our concentration.  I love AUM chanting, the easiest, most powerful and energizing meditation technique available, to all the scriptures.
