Respect, Devotion, Surrender.
“practice, practice, practice and all is coming” S. K. P. Jois

Yoga is a way of living that teaches us how to keep our mind, emotions and body aligned with the soul purpose to enable our self expression with coherence and fearless grace. Our yoga classes and workshops are led by experienced teachers that have yoga as their personal practice and understand the value on sharing the yoga system with an individual approach within a group context.

Maha Mantra

I bow to the lotus feet of the Gurus The awakening happiness of one’s own Self revealed, Beyond better, acting like the Jungle physician, Pacifying delusion, the poison of Samsara. Taking the form of a man to the shoulders, Holding a conch, a discus, and a sword, One thousand heads white, To Patanjali, I salute.

May all be well with mankind. May the leaders of the earth protect in every way by keeping to the right path. May there be goodness for those who know the earth to be sacred. May all the worlds be happy. Quoted from the KPJAYI official website

Moon

In Yoga, the full moon corresponds to the top of the inhalation and the very peak of Prana Vayu (the expansive and upward-moving direction of Prana). The full moon provides energy and heat, but can increase the tendency to lose our connection to earth. The new moon is associated with the end of the exhalation when Apana (the contracting and downward-moving direction of Prana) is at its strongest. During this time the energy is quieter and cooler, but the tendency can be towards heaviness and lethargy. Practicing Yoga over time creates a greater sensitivity towards energetic movements and influences. Observing moon days is a way to recognize the ebb and flow in nature and within our own beings, so we can live more in tune with these cycles.

Practice Guidelines

Do not eat before practice! We recommend that you leave at least four hours between eating a meal and practicing yoga. Ideally your digestive system should be as empty as possible – in other words early morning practice is best after emptying bowel and bladder. Do not drink water during practice, but wait until after you have rested. We also suggest that you do not practice yoga during the 2-3 heaviest days of menstruation. Irregularities in your menstrual cycle such as prolonged periods may result from practice at this time. Please inform us if you have any injuries, health problems or if you become pregnant, so we can adjust your practice accordingly. In general, if you become sick or have injured yourself, you will feel better and heal quicker if you practice. A shower before practice helps to increase flexibility and mental focus. It is also makes the experience for your teachers and others practicing around you more pleasant! Please wear clean yoga clothes, wash your mat regularly and do not wear perfume or cologne as these can cause allergic reactions for others.

Tina Sahl

Yin Yoga

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.
