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

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).

Joy of Yoga

Posted by in Blog

Feeling genuinely positive is wonderful. But how does one access such joy? In the yoga philosophy all practices start with learning how to breathe, stretch, move, and be still – ways to stimulate the bodymind to experience uplifting well-being. Such well-being is exactly what it says: wellness of the whole being. In ordinary daily-grind reality […]

Vajra. Indestructible Thunderbolt.

“Vajra” convey images of strength, indestructibility and force. The word of may be translated as both “thunderbolt” and “diamond”, traced back to its origins as a ritualistic object that had both the indestructible nature of a diamond, and the irresistible force of a thunderbolt.

Without breath there is no life

Posted by in Blog

In a living body breath is the vital sign of life. Without breath there is no life. It makes 100% sense to develop breath awareness and techniques above everything else to improve vitality and quality of life.

Meditation is more valuable than gold

Posted by in Blog

Meditation is always the most valuable thing you can do. When you find that fabled place of expanded centredness and eternal peace inside, you have struck gold. When you practice meditation frequently, to inhabit that space, you are mining the gold. When you learn to continuously be in that space, you realise yourself beyond gold. […]

Trees for Life – Spirit Calling Us

In certain spiritual traditions there are five Trees of Life that loosely corresponds to the five sheaths or koshas (energy bodies) of yoga. These “trees” form a layered part of an energetic eco system, ranging from the physical to the subtle bodies, including the bliss body, the culmination of the Five Trees, or the Zoar […]
