Do you know what the biggest difference between gymnasts + athletes + dancers, and the Yogis is? The breathing. When breathing correctly, the body is able to remove (approximately) 70% of toxins. We breathe correctly when we sleep, because the mind (the ego) is asleep and does not interrupt the natural mechanism of the body. The rest of the day, most probably, you are not breathing correctly. Specially with nowadays routines and hectic pace. It is now become popular the idea that the body has the ability to heal on its own. It is not just an idea, it is proven by Science! Did you know that each organ of your body has its functions but sometimes, most of the time, these organs are asl

Practice lead by Intention:.

I look back to when I started practicing Yoga and I remember that I learned the Sun Salutations by heart, after probably a year - year and a half of practice. I think my intention was to follow the teacher`s instructions, and simply exercise. Never to close my eyes and go within... It was the teacher who always encouraged these things...

Without the Sun, life on Earth would be impossible. No humans, plants, insects or animals, the Earth would be too cold. The Sun is so important that some cultures worshiped it and would build large structures out of a rock to track down its movements. They would also chart the seasons and interesting solar events like solar eclipses, and so they created calendars. The reason for this is that they knew how important the Sun`s impact was on their lives. Sun Salutations are born out of appreciation and are a reminder of how imp

Choosing an intention for your practice:.

You know, like some teachers always begin their class with - "Choose an intention for your practice.." I remember I would dismiss these words, keeping my eyes closed without knowing what intention to pick... or how exactly work with the intention throughout the practice. It took me some time to understand how to merge intention with practice... An Intention is a desire set in motion by the thoughts you think, the words you speak and the actions you take. Since Yoga is a practice of self-awareness, the task is to look within, and ask - what am I lacking today? What do I want to cultivate, to work on...? Space, Peace, Acceptance...? Perhaps focusing on something tangible, like the breath, o
