Yoga? Why Yoga?

 
  • You think you are too stiff to do yoga. 

  • You think you are not interested in spirituality or not spiritual enough..

  • You think the idea of singing OM makes you feel ridiculous.

Wanna get a different idea on what yoga actually is? 

Yoga means simply to "unite". 


It is quite simple.
You start with exercises on the yoga mat. You stretch your body, strenghten your muscles and your bones.
Just as if you go to your fitness studio around the corner.
At the same time the specific movements and poses (asanas) will massage your inner organs. Your liver, gall bladder,
your lungs and heart as well your whole endocrine system gets a good squeeze to receive fresh blood and oxygen afterwards.
Old stuff gets more easily transported out. Your body becomes more supple, you gain more energy. You feel...well, quite well.

Then comes the breathing in.
You start breathing more deeply and more consciously.
And you feel that you feel differently if you breathe in certain ways. 


You use your body and your breathing to enhance your entire well-being. You become aware of thought patterns and learn
how to observe them and then act, rather than to re-act on them.
Your every-day-life becomes easier, you entangle yourself in less drama (at least the unwanted ones).

Isn't that worth alone to step on the mat?


By the way - there is no "I am too little, too much, or not enough" in yoga.
When you feel a stretch, you have an effect.
Not only if you see it in the mirror and on the others.
So go and make your step on the mat. That's the start.

And then you will see (not look). 

Every physical body is different and needs a bit of a different handling. Hence we offer different yoga classes for different people and needs. Classic hatha yoga according to the Sivananda teaching is always the basis. Learn more about my trainings here.
 

Sivananda, an Indian Spiritual teacher, sent one of his students or disciples - Vishundevananda - to Europe and the USA to spread the
idea of Yoga in the Western world. This was roughly in the 1960s.
He broke down the traditional, thousands of years old yoga system to five simple aspects:

 

*I like to rather call it Conscious Thinking than Positive Thinking

Aah, and as you know anyway - every little step counts. Instead of trying to achieve it all in record time, simply start somewhere.
And then you feel more united. With yourself. With your breathing, your body, your mind, your emotions. With the people around you.
With the world you live in.

 

The mat is a good start. So here we go.

Prana is in the air

Breathing, Pranayama exercises, breathing for freediving, breathing for scuba divers...
Breathing is the essential connection between the body and the mind. 

 

Yogis define the life span of living beings in the number of breaths,
rather than the number of years. 

So it's worth giving our breathing some more attention with exercises, as preparation for freediving or scuba diving. To help us in difficult situations.
To gain control over our mind. To relax. To sleep better.
To have more energy.

Come and discover pranayama and breathing exercises with me.
 

Where can I join? 
We'll meet at your place, somewhere outdoors, or at Satori or at Felis Magica

or you join the Breathe o'Clock
