ANJANEYA

Anjaneya (Hanuman – the monkey god in Hindu tradition) stands for courage, strength and overcoming the odds. He symbolises devotion, belief and trust in oneself. As son of the wind god Hanuman also represents prana – life force and energy. I found all of these aspects vital and enriching in my own journey through life and hence chose Anjaneya as the name for my Yoga business.

YOGA

Yoga helps you relax and restore your natural balance and energy flow. It allows you to re-connect with your breath, your body and your heart. It allows you to find stillness in a hectic world and just simply be. to experience the present moment, and simply be who you are.

When you begin to practice Yoga regularly you have taken a very important step towards positive living. You have made a conscious choice to devote some of your time to nurturing yourself in body, mind and spirit. Welcome to the wonderful journey of Self-discovery through Yoga!

HATHA YOGA

Hatha Yoga is one of the two branches of Yoga that focuses on the physical culture, the other one being Raja Yoga.

Hatha is made of two syllables ha = sun, tha = moon and represents opposing energies: hot and cold, male and female, positive and negative. Hatha yoga is meant to join together sun (masculine, active) energy with the moon (feminine, receptive) energy, thus producing balance in an individual.

Hatha Yoga attempts to balance mind, body and spirit through postures (asana), controlled breathing (pranayama), and the calming of the mind through relaxation and meditation (dhyana).

My classes are relaxed with a gentle flow. I teach a variety of asana to ensure the whole body moves in a balanced manner, gradually building increased strength and grace in the postures. Pranayama exercises and moving with mindfulness allows students to experience effortless flow of their practice, gracefulness and lightness in the Now.

YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that aren’t normally exercised very much in a more active (yang) style of asana practice. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

Yin Yoga is suitable for almost all levels of students and is a perfect complement to the more dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of Yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.

While initially this style of yoga can seem quite passive or soft, even boring, a Yin practice is in fact challenging due to the long duration of the asanas. Postures can be held anywhere from one to ten minutes. Yin Yoga requires the student to let go of the known, let go of ambition and goals and venture into new spaces in body and mind thereby finding stillness.

Yin Yoga needs to be experienced to really know what it is all about. Visit www.yinyoga.org to find out more information.
