To see Yoga as an inner path, not an outer fitness training, body, breath and mind are included. It is a chance to reconnect with your body and re-establish a possibly long-lost connection. This can lead to a new understanding of the needs and limits of your own body and a deep experience of stillness and harmony. Tensions, even in very deep layers of body and mind can be released, self-healing and experiences of wholeness are possible.
The class starts with a meditation to turn the awareness inward and calm the mind, followed by dynamic and static asanas. I consider the balance of active and passive practices, tension and release, yin and yang aspects as very important.
Pranayama practices (controlled breathing) and a meditation or dependent on the duration of the class only a meditation complete the practice.
Yoga for pregnant women is possible and very recommended, but only if you do not have any health restrictions. You should talk to your doctor before you start to practice. Even if you are having a healthy pregnancy it is better to practice only prenatal yoga classes or find a qualified teacher.
Avoid heavy meals at least 3-4 hours before your practice.
The best time for yoga practices is early morning and evening- never practice in direct sunlight.
Consciously choose your yoga space. Create a nice and calm atmosphere. Remove anything that does not suit the practice. Simplicity and clarity are very important.
You need a yoga mat, a cushion or a folded blanket, a yoga block or a big book.
Avoid disturbing phone calls or the doorbell ringing.
Practice with awareness, within your own limits. The breath should flow naturally without pressure within the nostrils not the mouth throughout the whole class. Never force the breath (except during the pranayama practices). If you notice that you are holding the breath, this is a sign of tension. Try to let go of the tension or stop the practice until the breath normalizes again.
If you notice any symptoms like pain, dizziness or sickness, stop with the practice and lay down on your mat.
I decided not to write a text about myself, because Yoga is about you! Yoga allows you to reconnect to yourself.
With yoga and meditation you can see what is inside and explore yourself. So I think it is not important to learn things about me. Explore yourself! It is worth it.
