At the Ananda Kutir Ashram, based on the teachings of Swami Sivananda, there was a course stretching over several years in remedial yoga. We had therapeutic yoga decades before the hype […]

Know, nourish & grow

Posted by in Blog

To understand Self and Oneself, in the world, is to nourish oneself in self-knowledge, and grow in wisdom. This is what I share in my yoga classes and training, because this is what interests me, and it makes more sense to me than anything else.

Breath – the source of Well-being

Posted by in Blog

Efficient breathing and nutritional meals are essential to living. It is, however, of vital importance to understand that proper breathing is only possible with good posture, and food is much better digested with healthy breathing habits. For more information on this please refer to my book Five Keys to Well-being. ● Breathing provides direct access […]

The Golden Middle Way of Hatha Yoga

Posted by in Blog

Aspiring and established yogi’s naturally emphasise the particular “style of yoga” they are doing. But this may easily obscure a core purpose of Yoga. And with that, one of the great aspects of the discipline, one that provides so much value to the practitioner and its community or society, may too be obscured. Much clarity […]
