June-July 2014 TT Level II Salento-Italy-
Mindfulness of breathing to bring loving-kindness to our dear bodies. As Thây says, “You should really love your body. You should really take care of your body. Mindful breathing, with rest, can do miracles. “
Think with your heart, let your mind rest.
Namasté and greetings,
It has been way too long since I posted here. I've been going through a process of inner transformation that has required a great deal of my attention. And now that I have moved along to a point in that process that has a level of grasp and maturity to it, I am ready to share!
Becoming a Yoga Teacher is not a decision to be taken lightly. It requires a great deal of commitment, a willingness to look within, the courage to face your hidden fears, and a deep desire for personal transformation. One must have an integrated understanding of it's many elements, compassion in helping others, and great degree of humility.
This summer me and 23 other dedicated yogis came together as an Ashtanga family in the beautiful setting of Yoga In Salento, Italy. Within couple of hours it felt like we have known each other for ever. Love, compassion, care for on another was ever-present.
Meeting with the 3 wonderful teachers , John Scott, David Keil and Greg Nardi, had an extraordinary impact on our practice in All levels.
The 2 weeks were very busy. Our days were filled with asana practice, yoga philosophy and chanting, anatomy studies, adjustment lessons and evenings we came together to finish off by silent meditation. Our teachers spreading the light of this ancient discipline, mind and heart body practice, helping us to set our intentions closer to our goals. Where do we come from, where are we heading? Why are we doing yoga? Questions that would rise in Samastitihi, the most fundamental of the poses.
Welcome to the path of the heart
Now the ground has been fertile and the seed ready to be planted. Now is the time for creativity, time to drearm big with no holding back. I give thanks to my teachers for being such an inspiration, thank you for bringing life into my believe system, no bounderis , no limits, Only infinite LOVE.
Welcome to the path of the heart...
"There is no way into presence, except through a love exchange"
Summer 2013 has marked an unforgattable memory in my Yoga journey , a taste of paradise in Samahita Yoga Thailand, a sencere sanctuary on the island of Koh samui where I followed continues training in Pranayama & yoga Philosophy with Paul Dallaghan and a wonderful week of Ashtanga yoga traditional Mysore style , with R . Sharath Jois in Copenhagen.
Samahita Retreat or more know as Yoga thailand is a heaven on earth. It has beautiful nature and sandy beaches and everything has been carefully thought after, from the amazing food to the wonderful wellness centre, all the staff are highly trained and happy to help.
Yoga Thailand was the perfect place for recharge of my energy, study and to nurture my mind and soul. Sri. O. P Tiwari is the very respected senior teacher of the Kaivalyadhama tradition which follows the Ashtanga yoga of the Patanjali path. Sri. O. P Tiwari is the main teacher of Paul Dalladhan, the founder of Samahita Retreat and every year they have a tradition to continues training in Pranayama and budhist Philosophy. This year was a special year as the resort celebrated 10 years anniversary! looking forward to the continues Pranayama program summer 2014.
This week has been a tremendous hardworking, challenging yet rewarding .
A week of reunion of part of Ashtanga family with practitioners joining from all around a world. A great opportunity to make new friends and meet like minded people. Practicing with Sharath this week brought my memories back to Mysore, India.
I listened to his steady count of led primary series interspersed with the synchronized thuds of 150 pairs of feet hitting the mat during each vinyasa. It was like the first Mysore experience. No cheesy background music, no endless yoga chatter…., just the breath, the count, and the rhythm of the practice. So simple and yet so mysterious and powerful!
During the practice one can challenge many obstacles, (specially in the beginning) doubts , weakness, fear . Doubts of not doing well , or questions that you have been probing for a while, like why am I doing this? Fear of certain asanas , droping back or headstand!! But it is here (on your mat) where the most life-changing inner work happens. It is here where the endless infinity meets , trough the asanas and your breath. It is here where you gain your strength even though your whole body might shake like autumn leaves...
I am grateful to have found the path, desire and passion to pass on the message of yoga to others. On my journey I have met struggles and challenges yet I keep enjoying every breath of it and I am learning to surrender.
His words clinging in my head in time of despair and doubts;
Stay pure, help the ones in need (even if you have to miss your practice), be humble, believe and have faith ! This was the blessing that Sharath gave to all of us !
Guru Brahma Gurur Vishnu
Guru Devo Maheshwaraha

Stop for a moment and meditate on the passage of time, to feel time moving inside you, is to practice the value of the winter season' "Nei Jing", the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Chinese Medicine
Seasonal living shows us how to live in harmony with the natural cycles of our environment. The cold and darkness of winter urges us to slow down. This is the time of year to reflect on our health, replenish our energy, and conserve our strength. This is a good time a year to be more conscious about and take care of the kidney, urinary bladder, adrenal glands, ears, and hair.
In Chinese medicine the Kidney energy is the root of all energies. It is the energy of development, growth, structure and reproduction. The kidneys supply the energy for the bones and teeth, for the hair of the head, for healthy sexual function, for fertility, for the immune system, for the lungs, and for wisdom. And the Kidney energy is associated with the energies of the Water Element, which is dominant in winter.
Winter is upon us and we're all enjoying the nip in the air. It's the best season to enjoy an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables. This is the time of the year when market places are overflowing with fresh, appealing foods and because of the lower temperatures, appetites increase.
Following the philosophies of Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western dietitians, it is indeed natural to look for a few new items on the winter menu.
It's very important to keep yourself warm in winter and it's really easy to do so. Just add these foods to your daily diet and you'll be able to enjoy the season to the fullest.
