What is the meaning of Namaste that we start and close each class with? Namaste has actually two elements to it, the Mantra - the spoken words - and the Mudra - the hand gesture. Let's start with the Mantra aspect. In Sanskrit 'Nama' means to bow, 'as' means I, and 'te' means you. Therefore it translates to 'bow I you' or 'I bow to you'. Saying these words to each other we acknowledge the soul that we see in the other person, and also the soul in ourselves. 'I see what is holy in you. I see what is noble in you. I see what is beautiful in you. I love and respect you without conditions. The ..read more

'Where focus goes, energy flows. Where energy flows, things grow.' - goes the famous saying. Basically, what we focus on, we give energy to, and this in turn will bring more of that into our lives. From another angle, the Fire element in our body is connected to the sense of sight. Where we bring the fire -our gaze - things ignite. In our Yoga practice we have a tool for keeping this focus harnessed, which is called the Drishti - the focus or our gaze. By being in control of where we look, we keep our attention where we want it to be, which in turn helps to make the mind one pointed (no, mul ..read more

How is your gut feeling?

We all heard about having a gut feeling. An intuition, coming not from the brain, but our gut. If we choose to follow it, more often than not, it leads to a smart decision. Why? It is said that the gut is actually more intelligent than the brain. The best way to keep our gut healthy is of course eating a healthy diet. There are also supplements that can give us a helping hand. I was quite excited when our nutritionist recommended for us to take the Herbaferm drops. These drops are liquid gold, we are in love with them! What are they? Herbaferm drops are a dietary supplement used to support d ..read more

The Running Yogi

Photo by Josh Gordon on Unsplash You run? Yep. I am a 49 years old Yogini (female Yogi) and I run occasionally. Why? Because I love it. I always thought that I am not a runner. Don't like it, not built for it, just can't do it. Than one day I got really upset about something and looked at my training shoes and a thought popped into my head 'Go for a run, otherwise you are going to explode'. Well, who am I to argue with the voices in my head? So off I went. Something magical happened that day. I fell in love with running (or jogging, or walking fast, depending on how you look at my 'perfo ..read more
