    Each one of us is unique in this world. We are born equal, with the same intellect and also with all the tools inside to exploit our own potential and to get the best of what we have. But even though we are a shiny diamond, we have a veil of illusion that only lets us see the rock, and not the bright diamond beneath. Most of us are ignorant of our own true nature and that brings us pain, instability and insecurities. And when you don’t know yourself , everything

  • Comment le yoga peut aider à surmonter la dépression

    Il semble juste de dire que nous vivons dans une société qui cherche à vendre un bonheur illusionnel. Plus nous
    tentons d’accéder à ce bonheur, plus il semble nous échapper. Nous sommes gavés de sécurités matérielles et
    relationnelles, dans cette roue qui tourne continuellemment, avec des idées distortionnées de ce que représente le réel bonheur.
    Ceci étant dit, dans une telle société, il est primordial de trouver le temps de revenir à soi. Le yoga représente une excellente pratique pour évoluer sur les plans physique, mental, émotionnel et spirituel. Il permet d’ouvrir sa con-science, de retrouver une paix intérieure. Pour plusieurs, il apporte un sens à la vie, d’où son importance.

  • Yoga for Anti-Aging

    My name is Matteo and I have just started Yoga in this Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh. I will turn 35 this year and I can say that my body is not in the same shape than 10 years ago (even less). I am certain that a daily practice of asanas will help me to manage my first aging.
    I should not say that I have just started Yoga as Yoga is everywhere in our life, that is something that we discover when we study Yoga. When I was young, I used to practice sport twice a day to become a champion in athletics. Then I have been able to integrate a special force in the
    French army, before leaving for a peaceful life with 6 months of vacation a year and concentrate this time to meditation, spiritual experiences, psychology trainings…

  • How to live a positive life with Yoga

    How to live a positive life with Yoga Yoga is a state of being. A state of presence, oneness and connection with the Universe. Recognizing the essence of yoga, changes one’s mindset to think positively on and off the mat. A positive attitude uplifts ourselves and others to embrace their highest selves in this human experience. Thus, we create self-love, fulfilling careers, loving relationships and an awareness of our role on earth. To me, yoga is a connection of the mind and body with the present moment. It is an unlearning of fear and reconnection to love. According to ‘Four Chapters on Freedom’, yoga is blocking patterns of consciousness. It is disconnecting with thought patterns and reconnecting to the universal mind, based on presence, stillness, peace and ultimately, reality. Through connecting with my breath, I’ve been able clear negative thoughts and connect with the moment. Clearing the mind births the […]

  • Yoga Makes You Happy

    Yoga Makes You Happy In modern lives everything is happening really fast; we can have anything we want, when we want, the way we want. We connect with people far away, in different time zones and have insights about their lives just by scrolling our own smartphones checking their social media accounts. We constantly compare our lives with them with the illusion that they have better conditions than us when in reality what we see online is only a frame of the best part of them. This hectic life we have been living is making most of us sad and sick without even noticing the real reason why. One of the most important things; and by the way we take it for granted; is something really simple and it does not cost a single penny, our breath. The practice of deep breathing can help us to avoid the “fight or […]

    Quando eu cheguei na India em marco de 2018 senti uma energia muito forte no meu coração, como se eu pertencesse aquele lugar, tive a certeza de que não era a primeira vez que eu estava pisando nessas terras, a nossa historia era de longa data.
