- Yoga is FreedomYoga is freedom I’m often asked the question – “What kind of yoga do you do ? ” You think this would be simple question to answer , right?? It usually tempts me to go deeper than the expected answers of Ashtanga , Vinyasa , Hatha .. Etc and even deeper than the actual types of yoga such as Rajas, Karma , Jnana..

We are on this earth to simply experience and grow within .All while greatly respecting The Whole (= that ) When we meet someone and recognize them as an “old soul” what we are saying is that they have wisdomContinue reading “What’s this all about ??”
- Hatha Yoga – What is it ?Hatha Yoga – What is it ??? Something I wrote on the bigger picture of Hatha Yoga . As usual I wrote it without intention of sharing so disregard any typo, grammatical errors .etc…Thought some of you may like to see my viewpoint on the bigger picture of the practice of Hatha Yoga. Hatha yoga = Physical yoga – Covers all things about our physical life – prepares our bodies and mind for life . We have built many conveniences in life . These things allow us to live with more physical ease . These are good to have ,Continue reading “Hatha Yoga – What is it ?”
