Hatha - Yoga and Pranayama

„No matter whether one is young, in middle or advanced age, even if you are sick or weak, anyone can start the practice (of Yoga).“
Hatha-Yoga-Pradipika I,64

Hatha-Yoga

Yoga teaches us to notice and to better understand our body, our breath and our mind. Developed in India as a way to find relaxation and self-realization, it is an opportunity to get in contact with ourselves.
In my classes, we learn to do Asanas (body-exercises) in a harmonious and gentle way. After some time of regular practice we will notice our body as more relaxed, more strong, more flexible, and we will learn to align more easily. We will develop a deeper understanding for ourselves and the world around us.
We don´t need any special abilities. Everybody can start like he or she is now. The positive experiences which we have during the lessons can be integrated also into our everyday life.
With Yoga we improve our health and well-being, reduce stress and gain easier access to our own qualities like calmness, joy, power and peace.

The classes are taught in Czech and/or English, depending on the needs of the participants.

Pranayama

„When the breath wanders, the mind is unsteady, but when the
breath is still, so is the mind still and the yogin obtains the power of stillness. Therefore the breath should be restrained.“
Hatha-Yoga-Pradipika, II,2

A very valuable part of the classic Hatha yoga tradition are the breathing exercises. We all breathe, in each moment of our lives and most of the time we are just not aware of it. Breathing is however much more than just the physical act of exchanging air. The way we breathe influences our well-being, our ability to concentrate, the way we deal with stress and also connects us with the environment.
Pranayama offers on one hand the possibility just to observe the natural flow of the breath, to better understand and liberate it, as well as to recognize old habit patterns in our breathing and to resolve them. On the other hand, we can learn to modify and to lead the breath gently, so that it can become more deep and calm. In this way we also influence our inner state, because calm and gentle breathing goes hand-in-hand with a clear and relaxed state of mind.

Therefore small Pranayama- and Meditationunits are integral part of all my classes.
