Yoga inspiration or yoga exploitation?

June 15, 2017

Some of you might already have seen the video starring the international yoga teacher Briohny Smith did for the US fitness chain Equinox some six years ago. At the time the clip caused quite an uproar (mainly in the US, not sure if anybody in Europe cared…) as some considered it to be portraying yoga in an overtly sexual way, not representing the “true spirit” of the practise…

It can be just as daunting as it is exciting to start a new activity and yoga is no exception to that. Whether you start to practise in a fancy yoga studio or at a more down to earth community centre, here’s a list of few unwritten rules that most yogis around the word follow. The physical yoga practise is individual yet collectively done and observing common guidelines…

My own yoga pictures do…

November 30, 2016

About Yoga Mats

November 18, 2016

***Suomi versio tulossa myöhemmin*** To practise yoga, you really do not need anything else but the willingness to be present in the now and the yoga mat as we know it is a rather new Western invention. However it can bring a new aspect to the practise by creating a space for your meditation and adding cushioning and stability for the asana. These days there is a wide…

5 Minute Rebase

September 20, 2016

Sometimes you just need to switch off for few moments to get your bearings back. When I was still working in an office, this mantra did it for me for every time. Put your earphones on, close your eyes and chill for 4:55. Meille kaikille tulee varmasti joskus tarve muutaman hetken irtiottoon keskellä päivää. Aina ei ole kuitenkaan mahdollisuutta poistua työpöydän ääreltä. Oma suosikkini nopeaan rauhoittumiseen on ollut…
