The Joys of Teaching Yoga

I like to set myself small challenges. I wanted to improve my fluidity in counting in Sanskrit. So every time I practice kapalabhati – a pranayama technique in which you force the exhale with the strength of your abdominal muscles in quick succession – I silently count the strikes in Sanskrit as quickly as I… Read more »

How to access that elusive wisdom

Remember a situation when something which you read, or was said by someone, evoked an immediate response within you; an idea or concept about which you knew for certain was true and correct? You felt a deep knowing that you were hearing a truth? At this moment you may have just accessed your ‘pratyaya’, a… Read more »

Pranayama with Angelika

When practicing pranayama – the control & release of the breath – we are accessing our ‘pranic’ sheath (Pranamaya Kosha).

Under the Yoga Spotlight – Backbend

Urdhva Dhanurasana – Wheel The full backbend – upward bow posture – or commonly called ‘the wheel’, is a classic Yoga posture and quite complex. To practice it well requires a lot of ‘opening’ as well as strength in several parts of the body. Although for most a strenuous posture, this backbend reaps a lot… Read more »

Laughing and Crying with Yoga

One of the students I teach is smiling constantly throughout her practice. She seems to very much enjoy moving her body, loves a challenge, and simply laughs when she is not succeeding in something. She responds to that which she feels challenged by, with either a kind of ‘dance’ around her mat, or when seated,… Read more »
