Are You Eco-Sattvic ?


Terms such as eco-bodhisattava, eco-sattva - the health and balanced state of the Earth - are key to understand the potential strength of Buddhims in its engagement facing the Climate Crisis.
By the way anyone has the potential to do something to the extend of what is possible and the leverage to be made use of.

It all started with a question:
"Do you chant Aum at the opening and closing of the practice in Dubai Studios".

The answer was simple: do as you wish.

Yin Yoga is Restorative

There is one terminology not acquainted to Yin Yoga  and so often mistakenly closely associated with this slow particular practice of Yoga. This term is "stretching" as in statements such as " yin is long passive stretching",  "do some yin and stretch it out softly" "stretching in yin is safe, go ahead". Here some clarifications and dissociations

The Science of Yoga

Has the thought of Yoga as a Science crossed your mind? On a similar note, the answer to the question of whether Yoga starts and ends with Asana may also unfold a box of goodies. Yoga is a 5,000 years old wisdom which was codified in various forms several times since. The modern expression of yoga as seen across Yoga Studios around the world is essentially a combination of physical asana practice, a dash of mantras chanting,

The training noone ever fails


The popularity of Yoga Teacher Trainings is growing as fast as is the Yoga world of practitioners. One of my teacher even correctly called YTTs " The only training course hardly anyone ever fails" . The other aspect is that not everyone who joins a YTTC actually does it with the intention of teaching, while some discover an inherent passion, others were already teaching before actual graduation. The fact is that yoga is an abundant subject to study,  a pandora's box

A Learning Environment for Yoga

With yoga being a body and mind practice combined with several layers of spirituality the teaching of yoga becomes a holistic practice with a 3rd and even 4th dimensional planes of existence. These planes open up through the added layers of spirituality involved in a yoga practice. Yoga is the science of improvement of our own being:how much we put in it, reaps rewards, and this very attitude of self-awareness, mindfullness, and exploration of the inter-play of natural forces, bio-energy, mind and body connection, inner-self and the own beliefs distilled with the practice, creates a resonance of long-lasting spiraling wellness.
Teaching yoga is a holistic practice, it makes people move their body, calm their mind, modiy their bio-energy, creates some space for release of blockages and frustrations, clarifies the mind, detoxifies the body in a non-competitive self-awareness context.

Karma Yoga. Steps to Applied Yoga


Yoga philosophy defines Karma Yoga as Yoga of Action or Discipline of the Action and can also be called “the way to achieving perfection in action”. Karma Yoga is an underlying part of the derivatives types of Yoga with a general understanding of Karma and reincarnation. This approach considers the life cycle of past, present and future revolving in circle or better spirals of several lifes unfolding over extended period of times.

Dubai Yoga 2.0 - Zoga ! The Studio with a Difference...

Zoga Dubai is a Studio with a difference. It offers Yoga Classes and a lounge bar to unwind or prepare your tune up respectively before or after a class.
We are thrilled to be offering a session at Zoga , Friday 29th January 2016 1.30pm to 4pm. 

Yin Yoga Nidra and why it is important to stop wanting to achieving and just be.

Yin Yoga is a slow passive stretching form of Yoga meeting you half way to  release tensions and soothen the nervous system. Neuroplasticity has it that the brain does understand the word Relax yet the nervous system does not like to unwind, doe snot know how to unwind. It is not its job. At least for the sympathetic nervous system which is always on a fight or flight response. To actually relax there is a need to engage the parasympathetic nervous sytem and that comes up with long slow passive moves. The trigger or bridge between the two? Breathing ! Good breathing !A good breathing pattern is essential to life anyhow. As the Sages say: Long Life comes with less and better breathing patterns.

Yoga Nidra is a Sanskrit word for Yogi Sleep or better Yogi Hypnosis. Sessions last between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the focus and usually leave the practitioner grounded with new new energies.

Our practice blends, Yin with pranayama and Yoga Nidra. Why? We have come to observe several forms of yoga classes and noticed the quality of the benefits from most of them. Yin is also often compared to Yang rather than presented as a complet. All together Yin and Yang create a flow. The Tao. The balance between movement and stillness using the breathing brings new kidn of awareness.
This Nidra-shop will integrate aspects of all these forms of Yoga using pranayama as a fluid thread. Here the latest review on our YOGA Trail Profile. reviews
