Sadhana - uninterrupted practice

Sadhana – uninterrupted practice; keep on studying yourself (video)

Yoga and tantra both put a lot of emphasis on Sadhana;  practice. In the words of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra: Sadhana is a process of internal refinement, which allows men to move towards perfection. The key to sadhana is abhyasa; uninterrupted practice.

A taste of Ayurveda

A taste of Ayurveda; classic Indian medicine (video)

I love Ayurveda; the classic Indian medicine. Why? Because Ayurveda tries to keep healthy people healthy and tries to root out the cause of illness instead of treating symptoms.

Just two boys sharing their passion

Pfffff… back in my room. Still buzzing. What a night. Singing mantras all night. With happy, smiling, hugging people, who couldn’t get enough of it. Love, happiness and hugs. A hot, Indian night. Far away from home, but with one of my best friends, who I met long ago. Just two boys sharing their passion. […]

Fire Ceremony at Sampoorna Yoga

Openings fire ceremony (video)

I love rituals. Well, non-commercial rituals. There is beauty in Christmas, but all this money spending and over-eating takes the beauty away from it for me. Here, in India where I’m teaching yoga at Sampoorna, I’m surrounded by rituals. Little pieces of thread wrapped around wrists, bindis to remember our spiritual journey and fire ceremonies. […]
