Flowing in the Wind

After a warm-up we get into a creative flow, working all the muscles of the torso to explore the weightless quality of the leaves and flags in the wind. And of course the dragon has got to fly and land and fly again in the wind. Delicious yin stretches to calm and ground wrap up […]

Easy Yin Yang flow

I was inspired by Martha for the “on your knees” sun salutations. This is a very easy Yang followed by Yin yoga class, for everyone. you’ll probably need a blanket or something to pad your knees since we are standing on them for a bit.

Yes You Can

A practice focused on strength and stamina, but completely open for adaptation and modification. More than physical strength, we need to exercise our will power to expand our boundaries and challenge our comfort zones. We first do the movements slowly and calmly, so you have the time to adapt to your own body and pace. […]

Samskara’s: patterns of behavior, can we change or develop them?

We all have samskara’s or patterns of behavior stored in our chakras or we developed them in this lifetime. Samskaras can be bad or good, however they will influence our lives. During meditation you can ‘discover’ certain samskaras and work on changing them. Another thing is to develop a good samskara to change bad ones, […]

All About our Heart and Hips

Even though we call a lot of poses heart and hip openers, what does that mean? For me heart opening poses are stretches for the front of the chest, however my focus could be on the physical/emotional heart, and I might want to move the energy in that area. Hip openers are vague as well, […]

The Eighth Limb: Samadhi

Samadhi is the culmination of our efforts, when the veil of illusion falls and our consciousness expends and perceives the entire universe. It is a state of bliss, of profound love and wisdom, when yogis become aware of their immortal and perfect Self. In other words: it is indescribable and impossible to fully comprehend with […]

Limbs Six and Seven: Dharana & Dhyana

As we continue the explorations of the Eight Limbs of Yoga, we come into Dharana and Dhyana, In my own understanding those two work together beautifully: one is the effort that slowly calms the mind, the other is the effortless experience of that calmness. Like when learning to play an instrument, first we need the […]

The Fifth Limb, Pratyahara: breaking free from the senses

The power of our senses can rule all our lives, enslaving us to everything that gives us pleasure and making us blindly run away from everything that gives us pain. Yogis teach is that learning to withdraw the power of the senses and to conserve that energy leads us to internal – spiritual – experiences […]

What are chakras and why should we care?

This is an attempt explore the possibility that chakras may not be as far-fetched as we normally think. Science gives us an entrance, but it cannot – yet – take us all the way, so some open mindedness is definitely required. It is my experience that the reward is definitely worth it, as chakra explorations […]

The Fourth Limb: Prana is not breath but what makes us breathe

Pranayama is not the same as breathing exercises but they are definitely related. After exercising our nirodha on our outer life – our social behaviour with yamas and niyamas and our physical body with asana – we now fine tune our efforts and direct them to more subtle territory.

Nyasa meditation 2

In this meditation we let our awareness flow over the ‘energetic’ spine, from the tailbone to the crown of the head. For a lot of us its difficult to ‘feel’ the spine, so sometimes we need to visualise it. We just take a look at the skeleton to see where the spine runs, how it […]

Meditation on Third Chakra

Manipura, the third chakra, is maybe the chakra that is most active collectively in our time and age. It relates to our tendency to worry and its opposite, our capacity to feel contentment; to our attachment to likes and dislikes and our discipline to overcome personal tendencies.
