A Personal Yoga Story
Martina completed her yoga training through the Yoga Academy Austria (certificate of the internationally recognized Yoga Alliance) in April 2013 and will step in until further notice as the representative of evening classes (except Yoga for pregnant women).
She was inspired by her holiday in Sri Lanka, after which she trained for Ayurveda therapist about the Yoni Academy, followed by yoga. In March, this was followed by a further training for children yoga teacher and as of May training in yoga therapy with Remo Rittner.
My focus is to get to know yourself better in yoga in compliance with the own comfort limit, ie, themselves do not hurt and let go through conscious breathing and taking in more and more of stressful factors to return to joy, harmony and bliss.
Martina will teach Vinyasa beginner lessons at 19:30 clock from Wednesday, May 21. Come and see their wonderful energy and enthusiasm for yoga.
Practical Tips for the Yoga-mat
When it comes time for the spring equinox, it reminds me that often I’m out of balance in my life – between work and home, exercise and rest, being right and harmony – and that I need to consider how to re-balance. Where do I start?
There is a beautiful quotation that reminds us where to start:
If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.
– Confucian tradition
So if we start with the heart, we may begin to gain more of a balance. Meditation is one way of really moving into the heart and understanding yourself and others on a deeper level. It helps one to move away from my “mind” – my need to know why and be always in the right. The deeper level one finds in meditation is a sensing level of what is true, and not so much about what one believes or what one wants. This quote reminds us that peace in the home, the nation and world starts with each of us, within our hearts.
Personally, when I meditate, it allows me to drop resentments, disagreements and worries. I calm down and take it easy. I gain perspective and context on situations that wouldn’t normally have, and in addition I feel like I make better choices about the balance points in my life: leave the office work at the office, go to a yoga class I know will help me, don’t worry so much about what other’s think.
Morning or evening meditation is a perfect way to take a small step toward balancing – even a few minutes of it is immensely helpful. If you’ve never meditated or want some more practice, you can join me on Friday evenings for a free time of learning to meditate. It’s how I started and really, we’re all beginners, when it comes to settling down the mind.
