While most people think that yoga means creating harmony and peace within body, mind and soul, it actually means “Chitta Vritti Nirodah”.
Translated from the Sanskrit, yoga is “Controlling the Fluctuations of the Mind”.
The countless benefits of yoga lead to a more peaceful, healthy and happy life. If you are interested to learn more deeply about yoga and understand the alignment, anatomy and philosophy of yoga as well, you must have been looking into doing a yoga teacher training.
Do you love yoga as much as we do and recently found it very transforming? Besides the physical benefits, yoga can give you lots of peace, calmness and encourage self-love. Asanas, meditation and pranayama techniques have very strong effects on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
When I first started practicing yoga, I thought it would help me lose weight and become a little more flexible. As I delved deeper into the practice, I saw that those were quite superficial aims and yoga offered much deeper and profound benefits. In this paper, I will focus on emotional balance. I will take a brief look at what yoga is, describe some helpful asanas, pranayama and meditation techniques, and then finish with a touch on nutrition.
Mental and physical tension is something that affects most people in their everyday life. What many people don’t understand is that through the practice of yoga, you are able to release these tensions and in return, live a happier, healthier, longer and more productive life. I personally have found the benefits of yoga and the release of mental and physical tension these past two years after using yoga as a way to help overcome anxiety that I struggled with in the past.
Did you know that more than 280 million people practise yoga every year? It doesn’t matter how old you are, if you are flexible or not, from which country you are or which hobbies you have. Yoga is for literally everyone and that makes it so beautiful! Yoga means controlling the fluctuations of the mind and creating internal and external union which can be done by various ways. Practising asanas is one of the most popular paths of reaching optimum health, a more joyful and peaceful life.
An important part of our yoga teacher training programs are the ethics of a yoga teacher. It’s our primary aim to pass on the values of a yoga teacher and encourage our students to teach spontaneously with authenticity. Hence, we provide diverse, challenging and motivating classes with modifications, explanations and interaction. The ethics of a yoga teacher are the key towards a prosperous path in the field of yoga. But what are the ethics of a yoga teacher exactly besides the basic yamas and niyamas?
Life is beautiful, unpredictable and wild. While we cannot control every aspect of our personal life, one thing is for sure: you never know what happens next and which challenge life throws at you next.While some people fight these wonderful opportunities to grow, other completely surrender and use every moment as option to evolve and learn. Which one are you?
I’m Camille, a 26 year-old adventure lover, globetrotter and yogi on a mission. When my mother passed away at the early age of 40, I was completely devastated. I totally lost all joy in my life and desperately searched for a way to relieve my grief, pain and loss. I was in deep depression and didn’t know how to get out. At 22 I had my bachelors degree, but was feeling like the last years have only passively passed away. During my studies I didn’t even socialise much and never went to party or anything like that.
Yoga is an incredible technology that can help to prevent many problems, make them more manageable in daily life or sometimes even provide a cure. Many people suffer from high blood pressure (HBP) and it can lead to the manifestation of other serious issues or disease
