When you now have decided to incorporate yoga into your everyday life, think about this: First of all, listen to yourself. Become aware of yourself and your body. Everything is changing, no two days are the same. This is how it is for all people physically and mentally. You only do yoga for yourself.

Daily life is not techniques or exercises, it is a reality - and reality can be easier to manage with the help of yoga, breathing techniques and meditation/relaxation.

Yoga is a Sanskrit word and can mean: union, connection, method and means of action. The yoga community today would like to associate yoga with two explanations: binding together, concentration.



Yoga is a several-thousand-year-old Indian philosophy that consists of a systematic description of techniques and methods to achieve a strong and flexible body, together with a balanced and calm mind.

Classic hata yoga that I present works with all parts of the body. The physical body and the mental part of the body. This is done through physical exercises, breathing techniques, relaxation, mental training and meditations. One of the unique things about yoga is the attention to breathing in the various positions, which in turn means that you come into contact with the moment here and now. You don't have to be particularly soft or fit to participate. Yoga is not a competition. Yoga is simple. Yoga can be done anywhere, anytime, and by anyone. You just have to adapt the exercises to where you are. Yoga is about getting in touch with yourself, your body, your breath and your natural inner peace. Effects. Common effects of yoga are relaxation, energy, well-being, openness and clarity. The physical part is yoga dissolves tension in the body and creates a freer flow of energy. Yoga's breathing exercises remove tension and balance the body's energy. Relaxation and meditation give you peace and contact with the deeper layers of your consciousness.

Physical exercises: The physical exercises both relax and strengthen the body. Here, movements and positions are used that loosen tensions and soften the body. Other exercises train the muscles and build strength. The internal organs are stimulated through increased blood circulation and influence through special movements and positions. Digestion is stimulated. Yoga can give you peace and well-being in your body. Some research suggests that yoga can affect important hormones and signaling substances.

Breathing exercises: By using breathing exercises you can get a more free and natural breath. Our breath is very important to our condition for both body and mind. Breathing exercises can help to dissolve physical and mental conditions that give you tension.

Relaxation: Underlying both physical yoga, breathing exercises and meditation. You don't have to be relaxed in the first place. You will become familiar with simple relaxation techniques for use in everyday life and deep relaxation where you can develop a connection with the deeper parts of who you are. Yoga relaxation can be very effective in relation to general stress conditions. Relaxation can affect both body and mind, can strengthen the immune system and help you deal with challenges better.

Meditation: Yoga's meditation is about attention. Through meditation you can achieve a subdued thought activity, which in turn can give you a greater presence, a contact with your intuition or gut feeling.


Through yoga, your consciousness can be expanded in a harmonious and natural way. If the body becomes strong and flexible, if the mind becomes calm. If you can see your life pattern, you get an overview. Do you accept what you see. You will be proven. There is a basis for self-confidence and satisfaction here. You are ready to face life's contradictions. Life happens.


You are not expected to live differently when you do yoga, go ahead and live the way you do. Just add a new habit - namely YOGA.
