Music during Yoga Class: Threat or Opportunity?

November 30, 2016

In all honestly up until few years ago I did not realise playing music in yoga classes was something that a) happens and b) is a preference for some. Now, I don’t mind either way. I sometimes practise at home with music on the background, and I have been to great yoga classes accompanied with well thought through music (think drum’n’base during a strong Jivamukti class at 7…

Yoga Instructor’s Back Office

October 23, 2016

In few pictures and words things that happen when planning and preparing for a yoga class. Muutama sana ja kuva siitä, mitä tapahtuu ennen joogatuntia. I wash the yoga mats used. I use very mild soap (Ecover or similar) diluted in a lot of water. Otherwise you can end up with a slippery mat which we do not want (cue literal faceplant.) After the wash and rinse with…

Yoga Tourist in London / Joogaturismia Lontoossa

October 12, 2016

I’ve been spending the last few days in London, making the most of the yoga classes the City has to offer. My goal was to try different classes and get inspiration from different teachers.

A friend and a fellow yoga teacher in Cyprus recommended TriYoga…

Few words about… Yoga Injuries

September 19, 2016

When New York Times in January 2012 published an extract of William J. Broad’s upcoming book, titleing it ”How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body” it caused a big stir in the US. Although yoga injuries have always been around, until then they had remained unknown for the wider public yoga who associated practising yoga as something that heals and cures, not the opposite. The yoga community wrote several…


Full Moon Yoga

September 16, 2016

The real September full moon is today but I took a jumpstart and led an evening class yesterday already. Because it was windy we did not suffer too much from mosquitos either. We were not quite so lucky last month when I was forced to cut the savasana a bit short as everybody was getting eaten alive. There is no full moon asana (that I know of) but…
