What is Yoga?
Yoga is a deeply personal and experiential inquiry into our own hearts, minds and lives.
Yoga is a 5,000-year-old wisdom tradition. Yoga means union – the union of body, mind, and soul. Yoga helps us to develop sensitivity to our present condition and offers clear methods that work across the entire spectrum of human experience.
These methods include: Breathing (Pranayama), Asanas (Poses) and Meditation!

My yoga friends, as many of you know, I will be gone on my yearly sabbatical (this year off to Bali) from Black Friday to the end of the year. Back to teach on December 28th. I take some time for myself, to find yoga places & teachers around the world that inspire me, to get a new perspective on life, learn about other culutres and come back refreshed with tons of energry and recharged batteries.

Good Yoga Advice & Philosophy
"Letting Go" A Yoga Story: Two monks were walking toward a river with the intention of crossing it. The monks saw a women at the riverbank waiting for someone help her get across. This was centuries ago, and those days, monks were forbidden any contact with women. The first monk said to the second monk:" This women needs help, should we take her across the river with us?" The second monk angrily replied: "We can't do that, we would be breaking our sacred vows." The first monk thought about what his friend has said, than took the women on his back and carried her across the river. After traveling and walking for a long time, the second monk who was very distraught about his brother's monk contact with the women, went on and on about how the vows were now broken and what they were to do? How would they explain this back at the monastery? The first monk stopped, looked at the second monk and said: "Brother, I left that women two miles back, why are you still carrying her?" When we hold on to our outdated ideas, our way of doing things, we hold on to things we no longer need to carry. The next time you feel yourself attached to an idea of how things should be, notice what effect attachment has in your body. Do your muscles tighten, does your breath feel stifled, is your face tense? Think of your yoga mat as a sacred place where you can unearth your buried baggage and give it over to the universe. Only by letting go, forgiving and letting guilt and anger fade away can we live in the moment and let the possibilities of life lead us.
