The Unexpected

Having trouble getting started with yoga? Or wonder why you would even consider starting yoga practice?

Let me explain a bit what yoga is and how it can benefit YOUR LIFE. This might help you to get motivated taking the first step. Yoga is a 5000-year-old science of unfolding the infinite potential of the human body, mind and soul. Say what?

It’s really not as difficult as this sounds. It’s basically a science that can HELP YOU become the BEST YOU. Yoga is not a religion nor a dogma. You’ll not get punished for getting it wrong. It’s not just a physical exercise either. And you don’t need to be flexible to start yoga. Yoga is foremost a spiritual practice and a way of life. It has many PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL and SPIRITUAL benefits.


No Miracles Will

Happen To You,

You Are The Miracle

The Sanskrit word yoga is derived from the root yuj, which means to yoke or unite. The yoga practitioner seeks to unite his or her individual soul with cosmic consciousness. In truth they are never separated. But most of us have forgotten how to tune in to our divine source which gives us a sense of being lost and cut off. So as individual souls we search left and right outside of ourselves to become whole again. To find lasting happiness one has to make the journey inward. 

How do we travel inward? To reach the most subtle part of our divine essence, we need to have an understanding of our body and mind first. From knowledge of the less subtle, the body, we could move to an understanding of the more subtle, the mind. From knowledge of the elusive and always changing mind we could get an understanding of the most subtle, our soul. This is how we will realize the body-mind-soul connection.

Your Natural Beauty

Beats Botox Any Time 

If and how we take this spiritual journey is up to us. Some people prefer just practicing chanting; others do challenging asanas. There are many ways to H(OM)E! Just take the first step and discover what works for you to experience your infinite potential.

How you practice yoga is much more important than what you practice. If you force yourself into positions without reflecting on whether what you are doing is helping you or harming you, you let your ego get the best of you. The ego likes to look good in front of others and is competitive. But yoga is not a competitive sport. Practised correctly, yoga takes you on an inward journey and challenges you to build the ingredients to a happy life: awareness, non-attachment, equanimity and contentment

The ultimate result of the pose is not so interesting to a yogi. It’s not about using the body to get into the pose. Rather you use the pose to understand and respect your body!
