back onto the mat…

…since Sunday I am back into the Absolute Yoga Studio, yesterday first “hot” class since 5 month’s  time, since I am sweating very easily and a lot too, it turned out to be quiet an effort, after 60 Minutes or so…to go  on, even there were a lot of rather simple stretching, Pilate style, practices, but phew…. almost blew my mind, at least it gnarled away bit by bit of my stamina and with it strength.

However I do have the impression that here in the tropics, the actually “felt temperature” and the very high humidity, adding the perspiration, generated body heat of the other participants in the studio,  should be taken under careful consideration by the organizers, specially by the teachers present, at times I simply had the feeling to breathe steam instead of air… sure everyone has a different level when exhaustion set’s in, but besides “losing weight” what is this supposed to be – Yoga?

I start to have doubts, about the health benefits of Yoga-Style Aerobics in Sauna conditions, and getting really curious about proper monitoring of the climatic conditions in the premises… as I am aware that in places with opposite, dry dessert style  conditions, there are humidifiers in use!

Is anyone aware about the climatic values/rules, are there any set conditions for the training facility, or does this all happen by rule of thumb”?

Namastasje!

…”and half the world hates the other one”…get together

Helping hands are worth more than praying hands. We can help the world peace by limiting our needs in asking ourselves: “how much is enough?”

…sprouting mind..

One cannot occur without the other, consciousness and its power, male and female, sun and moon, it is Shiva-Shakti Tantra unity.

“Second-hand knowledge of the self gathered from books or gurus can never emancipate a man until its truth is rightly investigated and applied; only direct realization will do that. Realize yourself, turning the mind inward.”

Tripura Rahasya, 18: 89

Do it, it’s you, you, you!

Yoga helps to connect, physical exercise, flowing into motion and frozen postures, enlivened by breath, enlightened through prana, the very essential universal power, the force unites the physical body with the universe, the supra consciousness itself.

Duality, controversial opposites, the contrary, resistance melts into all pervading omnipresent oneness.

Consciousness is the soul (Purusa) it’s status is inactivity,  being the  observer and activity is bound to the material nature (Prakrti) and it’s phenomena – both form, with countless attributes, this what is perceived as the empirical world and experienced as life.
