Yoga is a method of balancing and harmonizing body, mind and emotion, and is a tool that allows us to withdraw from the chaotic world and find peace in ourselves. Using the inner strength of the body, yoga teaches us to harness, direct and benefit from this life force.
Yoga means connection or association. A connection between body, soul and everything around us. In order to achieve inner balance and union with everything that is, breathing can be used as a guide. There are many different directions in yoga.
The yoga I practice and teach is dynamic yoga which I call “yoga for all” and “Ashtanga yoga”. A series of continuous physical exercises (asanas) coordinated with breathing, (read more under “Ashtanga yoga”). I emphasize that the participants focus inward on the body and perform yoga at a slow pace adapted to the breath. It is important not to perform or to be the best, but to listen to the body, to be present in one’s own body and the present. The exercises provide strength, mobility, balance and increased body awareness.
