Welcome to your local yoga community. We believe in challenging the status-quo of current Yoga scene. We are driven to bring people together and share the traditional practices of Yoga. We believe in non-commercialisation of Yoga and sharing the authentic knowledge and meeting like-minded people.
Yoga is not about flexibility but having a controlled breathing. Focusing on breathing centers your mind and relaxes the muscle. Posture will improve with practice every day. With the right diet and small adjustments, you will be proficient in basics of yoga.
Donation and Membership
You do not need to sign-up, no fees, no 10er card etc. The Morning Yoga Community classes are driven by donations or better having a monthly membership (€35,-). The catch is – When you show up for 60% of the classes, we will return 50% of your membership money. Our goal is to keep you motivated and reward you on your determination.
Having an abundance of Yoga apps, youtube and multiple resources to practice asana. Somehow the original essence and community approach are missing. We believe in sharing knowledge and bringing like-minded people together. We organise quality presentations on Yoga, Meditation, science, and spirituality. This event brings Heidelberg yoga practitioners community together. Please join our next talk: Meditation und Gehirn mit Dr. Heinz Hilbrecht
Aim of Yoga
The goal of any yoga practice is a sattvic (pure) balance of rajasic (active) and tamasic (passive) energies – a powerful union of yang and yin, effort and surrender, ha (sun) and tha (moon). The practice of Yoga helps us learn about stillness in movement and the flow of stillness, ultimately so that we have greater ease in every aspect of our lives.
Modren yoga as we know it was re-introduced by Guruji Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya in early 20th century – He is regarded as “The father of modern Yoga” and the guru of world famous yoga masters Sri B. K. S. Iyengar (Iyengar yoga), Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga vinyasa yoga) and Sri T. K. V. Desikachar (ViniYoga).
