International Yoga Day in Platres

June 23, 2017

Since 2015 the 21st June has not only marked Summer Solistice but also the International Day of Yoga, as agreed (by an unprecedented consensus) by the United Nation’s General Assembly in December 2014. The idea to observe Yoga Day came from India’s Prime Minister Narenda Modi who at the time stated: “For us in India, respect for nature is an integral part of spiritualism. We treat nature’s bounties…

Yoga full moon

The days of full moon hold various beliefs and significance for most cultures and across spiritual and scientific realms. In Buddhist ideology, full moon days are important as a time for religious reflection. Some cultures see the moon as a feminine (yin) symbol, representing the rhythm of time.

Yoga, Spirituality and Reddit

March 10, 2017

There are as many yoga stereotypes out there are as there are styles of yoga. And as with all the stereotypes, they do not come completely from nowhere, just as much as they do not represent the whole truth either. From time to time I come across comments from people who express interest in yoga, followed by a “but” and a reference to the level of spirituality associated.…

Modifications will be offered for more advanced yogis. The classes also include a short pranayama practise and at least a…

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…
