Heather Elton | Yoga teacher | The Philosophy | The Practice Private classes are suited to individual needs and a variety of yoga styles – Astanga, Vinyasa Flow and alignment-based BKS Iyengar – are taught. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is taught in the Mysore style of the late guru, Sri K Pattabhi Jois. You will learn the traditional sequence of poses in the Primary Series, the use of breath/bandhas (internal locks)/ drishti (gazing points) as well as the proper breath count in the series. Beginning with Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) your practice will gradually develop as the body develops strength and flexibility, the mind becomes focused and more stable, and the breath remains synchronised to the vinyasa throughout the practice. As you progress through the series, difficult asanas are encountered bringing you directly in contact with your physical/mental limitations. I’ve studied in-depth the Ashtanga Primary and Intermediate Series adjustments.

The Daily Bandha 'Karma' Endless knot Nepalese temple prayer wheel Karma symbols such as endless knot (above) are common cultural motifs in Asia. Endless knots symbolize interlinking of cause and effect, a Karmic cycle that continues eternally. The endless knot is visible in the center of the prayer wheel. Karma (Sanskrit: कर्म; IPA: [ˈkərmə]; Pali: kamma) means action, work or deed;[1] it also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect).[2] Good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad karma and future suffering.[3][4] Karma is closely associated with the idea of rebirth in some schools of Asian religions.[5] In these schools, karma in the present affects one's future in the current life, as well as the nature and quality of future lives - or, one's saṃsāra.[6] Etymology Definition and meanings Karma and causality Karma and rebirth

KNOWING & LEARNING YOGA THROUGH YOGA PHOTO TOUR - Lets go Alpha! What is Yoga The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit root yuj, which means “to unite” “to join” or “to yoke”. It is basically bringing one’s mind, body and soul in unison. Yoga is not any religion; it is actually an art of living that harmonizes the development of body through exercise, mind through breathing and soul through spiritualism. Its practice brings peace and well-being, and also a feeling of being at one with their environment. Goal of yoga is the ultimate self-development and self-realization with physiological, psychological and spiritual balance and development. Yoga in the Western World Swami Vivekananda is one of few Hindu monks who carried the art of Yoga to the West during the end of 19th century.

Yoga Information - Yoga Point This style of yoga was developed by B.K.S. Iyengar in India. It is a system of yoga where some time is spent in each asana (pose) and a precise alignment of the body is focussed on. Often supports eg, bolsters, blocks, chairs etc. are used, to help people work towards achieveing the final shape of the pose.

Gautama Buddha The word Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one". "Buddha" is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali sammāsambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksaṃbuddha) of our age.[note 6] Gautama taught a Middle Way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the Sramana (renunciation) movement common in his region. He later taught throughout regions of eastern India such as Magadha and Kośala. Gautama is the primary figure in Buddhism and accounts of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers. Historical Siddhārtha Gautama[edit] Ancient kingdoms and cities of India during the time of Buddha. Scholars are hesitant to make unqualified claims about the historical facts of the Buddha's life. The times of Gautama's birth and death are uncertain. Traditional biographies[edit]

Revista | CiudadYOGA Si eres víctima de los estornudos, la comezón en la nariz y los ojos llorosos provocados por las alergias, quizá te convendría hacer un poco de Yoga para combatir este mal Alergias, ¡háganse a un lado!, el Yoga ha venido a patearles el trasero y enviarlas muy lejos de nosotros. Porque, por si no lo sabías, existen algunas posturas que te podrían ayudar a enfrentarlas con éxito. Una alergia ocurre cuando tu cuerpo tiene una reacción al inhalar, ingerir o tocar una partícula o sustancia, y algunas de las más comunes son las alergias al polen y a los ácaros de polvo. La alergia al polen ocurre cuando hay contacto o exposición al polen de las plantas, cuando éstas se encuentran en proceso de polinización en determinadas épocas del año. Los ácaros de polvo suelen encontrarse en entornos domésticos y se alimentan de escamas de piel humana, y las alergias relacionadas con estos bichos suelen producirse como consecuencia de respirar el polvo que resulta de sus excrementos o de los ácaros muertos.
