Rumi, Love & Yoga

Posted by in Blog

My track “Magnificent” includes a poem by Rumi, These words are those of a true master-mystic: We are a drop in the ocean, and the ocean, is a drop in us. Rumi was 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, before becoming a Sufi mystic. The words he became famous for had the elegance and wisdom of a being throughly versed in in an […]

Effortless Effort – do yoga and get more done with less work

Posted by in Blog

In yoga effortless effort is a productive focus to have, and it’s all about quality, not quantity. In the yoga style I share our rest periods are used contextually for bodymind contemplation on rejuvenation; and not from inability to do exercise. It’s pacing oneself for greater well-being in the long run, with an immediate result […]

The Yoga Point of View

Posted by in Blog

In meditation intuitive consciousness cuts right through the illusion and misperception caused by exclusive or excessive linear thinking. A belief is an illusion. A strongly held opinion is a chain that binds the believer to a point of view. An open mind and open heart is the pulse and impulse of an innocent child, an […]

Mindfulness. Awareness. Consciousness. Yoga

Posted by in Blog

Mindfulness is when the mind is fully aware of itself, in its body. It is the mind tuned in to its immediate physical reality, not dominated by thought or emotiona. In awareness of itself, self, the being, it achieves a state of bodymind that is uniquely positioned to understand an objective reality. With practice and research […]

Illuminated by Yoga

Posted by in Blog

Yoga is a complete body-mind practice. Observing the mechanics of the full trunk ujia breath, air moving in and out, through the nose, with a deep chesty sound (vs. shallow, sharp and tight “sniff” breathing), focussed on forehead-brow point, is pure marvellousness. The dynamic interplay of muscle with mind, listening to the sound of a […]

Ocean Balm Ambient Music – Stream the Dream

Posted by in Blog

A recent video clip from a Muizenberg Beach sunrise when I went for a morning run. Had awesome creative fun turning it into a short video to promote my Being Ambient Music. You can stream literally hours and hours of my music just from iTunes to Youtube and, although most South Africans can’t access it, Spotify. Please stream my dream! It’s […]

Urban Yogi

Posted by in Blog

Be it as it may, many a modern yogi is perched in an apartment or suburb rather than on a rock, or under a rock, in a cave, or on a hilltop. Yoga turns the world upside down. Everything changes and everything stays the same. Eternal Self, energy and matter remains in interplay. #satsang #yogalife […]

Thoughts on yoga and self-enquiry

Posted by in Blog

Aware “thinking”, self-observation in the sense of meditative contemplation and watching oneself as in a science study, noting behaviour, reactions, energy or anxiety levels, being mindful of the environment, it’s part of yoga, as the path of yoga is towards union, of Self with Everything. From the outset make sure that self-indulgence and self-centredenss is […]

Vigorous asana invigorate

Posted by in Blog

Yey for Johann! I just graduated to a proper Instagram Yogi. After my beach yoga practice on a fairly windy Muizenberg summer beach at sunrise this morning, I took a whole set of selfies by just standing the phone up, setting the timer to 10 seconds, tapping the round button and posing (haha pun intended). […]

Learn, learn, learn, share, share, share

Posted by in Blog

I blogged below post as a reflection on my yoga life path on my Instagram which is now one year old. How much yoga did you do do this year? Did you share your energy with others? The impact yoga practice has on one’s body is invaluable. The body that we take, or the vehicle […]
